Evolution is a deadly arms race where particular species evolve to become the most lethal.
Featuring startling footage of animals in action, Africa’s Deadliest looks at some of the continent’s most dangerous creatures – including a few you might not expect to be such accomplished killers.
Africa’s Deadliest: Killer Tactics
Masters of stealth or speed, using enhanced senses and lethal strategies to hunt, Africa’s killers include the incredibly fast cheetah and lions, which while slower, have raw power and ingenious teamwork on their side. The rivers, meanwhile, hold fearsome crocodiles.
Africa’s Deadliest: Predator Swarm
Killer armies collaborate to take down larger prey. On land, a zebra’s kick can kill, but in the water it’s easy meat for a congregation of crocodiles. Wild dogs may not seem like fearsome predators, but a pack kills fast, brutally and often.
