Nat Geo Wild Monster Week: from Monday 12 to Saturday 17 June
Australia’s Deadly Monsters | Monday – Wednesday
We start in Australia with animals that are supremely adapted to life in harsh and dangerous habitats. This series takes us on a journey through three Australian outback terrains: the floodplains, the desert dunes and the humid highlands of a mostly dry landscape. We discover some of Australia’s frightening, ugly, freaky and, above all, deadly creatures.
Search for King Cobra | Thursday
Four metres long and with almost two teaspoons of venom, the king cobra is feared by all who share his forest home – humans as well. We seek him out in the western ghat forests around Agumbe in India.
Boss Croc | Friday
We follow Brutus the saltwater crocodile from a tiny hatchling over 50 years as he becomes the “top croc”. He avoids many predators and beats off countless rivals, makes great ocean voyages and conquers a prime lagoon. After having many offspring, he suddenly becomes one of the most hunted crocodiles in Northern Australia.
Dragon Island | Saturday
There is an island where dragons roam – an almost prehistoric world where animals fight to rule and to survive. Komodo Island is deep in the remote basin of the Pacific Ocean in an area known as the “Ring of Fire”. It’s the perfect habitat for the Komodo dragon! The largest living lizard on the planet is armed with claws and scales and looks a lot like those fantasy monsters in fairytales. But instead of breathing fire, he spits deadly venom.
Watch out for the second season of the hugely popular Extreme Animals as well as the Mission Critical special report on giraffes…
Mission Critical: Walking with Giraffes | Saturday 24 June at 6 p.m.
Giraffes across Africa are in real danger of becoming extinct. They’re hunted by poachers while their habitat shrinks. Where war rages, they’re in constant danger… but few people know anything about this. Directed by Ashley Scott Davison, Last of the Longnecks is an epic trek through Africa to show what giraffes have to deal with and how Earth’s tallest animals fight for survival as everything changes rapidly around them.
Extreme Animals | Monday 26 June at 6 p.m.
In this show we reveal the most radical examples of animal behaviour looking at examples from around the world. The storyline is simple: we count down the top ten extreme creatures for any given behaviour or location. The journey to find the answer takes us into the complex world of animal quirks and habits, uncovering why they do what they do.
