Episodes

  • Killer Whale

    +

    The killer whale is the world's biggest dolphin-32 feet long and up to six tons heavy. Smart, sophisticated, and social, they live in groups and hunt cooperatively. But it's no natural born killer. Calves spend several years at their mother's side, learning how to hunt some of the smallest-and biggest-animals in the sea. Built for the Kill: Killer Whale exposes real life and death struggles in dramatic second-by-second detail.

  • Wolf

    +

    The big bad wolf is 100 pounds of muscle and teeth, but it's born blind, deaf and weighs just one pound. Built for the Kill: Wolf follows the transformation of a helpless pup into an accomplished killer, exposing real life-and-death struggles in dramatic second-by-second detail. The wolf hones its hunting skills over about two years of intensive training-and the lessons are hard.

  • Hyena

    +

    The hyena, much maligned and misunderstood, is no slobbering scavenger. It's a calculating killer: as smart as a primate, as lethal as a lion. Built for the Kill: Hyena follows the transformation of a tiny cub into an accomplished hunter; exposing real life and death struggles in dramatic second-by-second detail.

  • Grizzly Bear

    +

    Grizzly bears are 1000 pounds of muscle, teeth, and claw. Grizzly cubs are just 1 pound of blind, toothless fluff. Built for the Kill: Grizzly Bear follows the transformation of a helpless cub into an accomplished killer, exposing real life and death struggles in dramatic second-by-second detail.
