Deadliest Animals (6 DVD Gift Set)
ANACONDAS No animal in the Amazon is more feared and respected than the world s largest and most powerful snake, the Anaconda. Fully grown, it can approach a length of 30 feet and weigh close to a quarter of a ton. Physically, no animal in the New World can match its strength. This dramatic programme ventures deep into the forests and swamps of South America to bring to our living rooms one of the most powerful hunters on the planet. TARANTULAS This detailed programme introduces us to numerous species of Tarantulas to prove that they are not dangerous to man and that their private lives are worthy of fascination, not revulsion. Many species have only just been discovered and by studying their activities and habits we learn that the Tarantula isn't nearly as nasty as their reputation would have us believe. It s time to show the beauty in this beast. AIR JAWS Aerial attacks of Great White Sharks in South Africa's False Bay rank among the most awesome predatory events in nature. When the timing is right, the one-ton shark explodes out of the water like a missile armed with teeth and, within seconds, devours its prey.
