Deadly 60 follows Steve Backshall and his camera crew as they seek out the deadliest animals on the planet. Monday will have two episodes airing back to back at 10 and 10:30 on Nat Geo Wild. In the first episode Steve travels to Namibia to meet leopards, lions, and spiders. In the second Steve heads to Thailand to observe king cobras, big cats, and the Topay gecko.
Ever wonder what it’s like to get those amazing shots of animals you see in magazines and on tv? Nat Geo WILD’s Killer Shots takes you along side Andy Brandy Casagrande IV as he pursues the perfect shot. ABC, as Casagrande likes to be called, is fearless in his camera work – getting unbelievable close to great white sharks on the hunt.
Killer Shots airs Fridays at 10 starting July 8 on Nat Geo WILD.
The world is filled with strange and fascinating creatures, and throughout the ages, scientists have identified a multitude of species. However, there are still some creatures known only by the folklore and stories surrounding them; their appearance and characteristics becoming more and more fantastic with each retelling. But their existence has yet to be verified.
Taking on the search for such creatures is Pat Spain, a wildlife scientist and great-nephew of famed paranormal investigator Charles Fort. As he searches for these bizarre creatures (such as the Mongolian death worm – a 2-5 foot long worm whose touch results in instant death), Pat interviews locals and often undergoes cultural rituals to gain their trust. Pat uses the information he gathers from interviews and the latest technology to find scientific explanations for these animals.
You can join Pat on his adventures starting Friday, March 4 at 9pm on the National Geographic Channel.
