Adventurer and naturalist Steve Backshall has one mission; to travel the globe in search of 60 of the world's deadliest animals.
From tiger sharks to giant centipedes, funnel web spiders to the golden poison frog, Steve bravely tracks down the creatures that others spend a lifetime avoiding!
Travelling across six continents, Steve searches through trees, deserts, swamps and seas in his bid to find the 60 deadliest creatures on the planet. From the infamous to the unexpected, this dangerous global adventure illustrates that size is of no importance, while the battle for survival is key.
We'll experience close encounters with all kinds of striking wildlife, and with each animal featuring dangerous characteristics, we'll see what makes these animals "king" of their habitat.
Some use their weapons for defence, and some for attack, however, one thing remains, and that is that whatever their size, these animals are truly deadly. Just don’t forget to watch your back…
The series also looks at the perilous future facing some of these deadly animals, and reveals the remarkable work being done by wildlife conservationists to protect them.
