Channel in 2007
Animals are blessed with weapons by nature that in some circumstances turned into a serious threat
for human life. These tricks and tactics of defense help animals a lot in their survival on this
planet. In this collection we meet some of the worlds most dangerous animals.
1) Killer Crocs
Costa Rica is home to an exotic and extraordinary collection of wildlife, including the American
Crocodile. This one-hour documentary follows the life of a female and her young through the most
dramatic events of their lives - mating, birth and growing up.
Costa Rica's breathtaking Pacific coast, rivers and tropical forest serve as a spectacular backdrop
as the baby crocodiles struggle to survive against predators such as caimans, coati, giant lizards
and wood storks. We also feature the tension between crocodiles and people as poachers endanger our
characters' long-term survival in Costa Rica's incredible tropical surroundings.
The Tarantula has prowled the Earth for some three hundred and fifty million years. A big spider,
it's famous for its big teeth which inject paralyzing venom into prey.
They are tough predators and one species has been known to kill birds and raid nests, even South
America's most dreaded Pit Viper isn't safe. But Tarantulas have enemies as well and although they
take refuge in deep burrows, they are sometimes discovered and ferreted out.
This detailed programme introduces us to numerous species of Tarantulas to prove that they are not
dangerous to man and that their private lives are worthy of fascination not revulsion.
Many species have only just been discovered and by studying their activities and habits we learn
that the Tarantula isn't nearly as nasty as their reputation would have us believe. Its time to show
the beauty in this beast.
3) Komodo Dragons
We venture to a world lost in time, a place of volcanoes and terrible lizards. The Indonesian island
of Komodo is no tropical paradise, but a parched land ruled by a fearsome hunter that tastes its
prey on the wind. This is home to the Komodo Dragon.
These forked-tongued reptiles kill anything they catch - deer, water buffalo, birds, goats and even
rach other. They can swim for miles in search of food and water, have been known to raid fishing
villages and are responsible the death of nine people.
This intriguing and often frightening documentary follows the lives of these carnivorous reptiles
and even witnesses the hatching of baby dragons.
This all-action adventure takes intrepid zoologist Nigel Marven on a whistle-stop tour of South
America as he hunts for an Anaconda measuring more than 30 feet.
First stop is Venezuela, where Nigel uses all his strength to wrestle Green Anacondas. Then south to
Brazil where he finds a snappy 10-foot Yellow Anaconda engulfing a huge stork. Finally Nigel heads
to the heart of the Amazon where he meets up with his quarry. Will it be the giant he craves?
Nigel Marven is on a mission. He wants to find out the truth behind the legend of the Piranha. In
this brilliant rogramme, Nigel travels through the waterways of South America immersing himself in
the Piranha's world.
From breeding to feeding, birth to death, all aspects of Piranha's natural history are uncovered
with spectacular wildlife images.
After swimming near a Piranha nest, hand-feeding a shoal in a feeding frenzy and studying Giant
Otters' feeding habits, he realises that Piranhas are much maligned and play a vital role in
maintaining the health of the waters of South America.
This fresh and exciting documentary is a must-see for all animal lovers.
