Synopsis

A series of guides into a world that is both fill us with wonder and fear.

Episodes

  • Incredible Spiders

    +

    Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's the Jumping Spider. The booby trap ninja? The Trapdoor Spider, no doubt. You're in the mood for a dance, and when you get the chance…? You are the Peacock Spider! Incredible Spiders uncovers a hidden world ruled by hairy eight-legged monsters known as the Arachnids - some of the most versatile and efficient killing machines on earth. High-speed cameras and exquisite photography reveal a variety of hunting tactics deployed by this sinister network of freaks. Grotesque as they look, they are incredible, and you'll see why.

  • Incredible Diggers

    +

    A worm head explodes from a desolate seabed and yanks a fish into a mucky pit; a fanged larva bores into human flesh; a beetle tunnels deep into fresh, wet poop! Digging freaks inhabit an alien world where bizarre adaptations and crafty weapons help them survive in claustrophobic blackness. One underground monster has 22 fleshy fingers for a nose; another shatters glass with a punch as forceful as a bullet and one freak digs a mile of new tunnel with his teeth! Delve into the freaky world of the Diggers.

  • Dragon Island

    +

    There is an island where dragons still roam. A Jurassic type underworld where ancient warlords still rule. Where they fight for supremacy…where they fight to survive. Komodo Island - deep in the remote basin of the Pacific Ocean – it’s an ancient Kingdom of fire and brimstone. Here, a string of 452 volcanoes erupt from the ocean bed, its known as "The Ring of Fire" and it's the perfect habitat for dragons. Komodo Dragons! The largest living lizard on the planet with 34 million years of survival in his DNA. It’s no surprise that he's still known as a dragon, he has the presence of an ancient gladiator. He's armored in claws and scales, but instead...

  • Viper Queens

    +

    Vipers are the Mike Tyson's of the serpent world - short, stocky, and they pack mighty punches laced with hardcore venom - at lightning speed. From the stark American Wild West, to steamy jungles in the heart of Africa, old and new world orders of Vipers have merged to create a super family of snakes. But while Vipers may be iconic coldblooded killers, they have a softer side when it comes to family. Velvet the Gaboon viper and Therma the rattlesnake, are two mothers, who face different challenges, in extreme, contrasting landscapes, but their goal is the same: to grow their families and keep ahold of their Viper Queen titles.

  • Grit: Honey Badger Tough

    +

    This film intimately follows the story of a single female honey badger as she raises her cub to independence. Weaving in the parallel stories of black backed jackal and pale chanting goshawk we examine their unique association with honey badger. And as a backdrop, the unique tapestry of the Kalahari unfolds - one moment harsh and forbidding, the next a glorious, wildly remote haven for some of Africa's most special animals.

    Summer is coming…and with it a deadly invasion. There's a killer on the loose, a deadly winged beast whose toxic venom melts human flesh. But it's not a dragon…it's a Japanese Killer Hornet. These supervised Samurais of the wasp world are the size of a human thumb and they are packed with a cytotoxic venom that causes anaphylactic shock - and death. The Killer Hornet invasion is crossing oceans and continents. They're responsible for 42 human deaths in China alone, and now that humans are on the hit list, its all out war!
