Ultimate Predators
Looks at some of the planet's most fearsome animals: from creatures one might expect, such as crocodiles, to others not so obvious, such as Australia's dingo - a ferocious dog willing to take on any animal on that continent. (1 of 5)
Pack Hunters
Predators multiply their advantage over prey by banding with others of their species to hunt. We see how lions cooperate to ambush unsuspecting prey and how army ants lay waste to the creatures that get in their way. (2 of 5)
Predator Weapons
Examines the physical attributes that make an animal a top predator, from the great African crowned eagle, which has huge talons strong enough to grab monkeys out of trees, to the pistol shrimp, which uses its claws like a revolver to knock out prey. (3 of 5)
Predator Superpowers
Superpowers are not limited to superheroes. Some animals can see, hear and smell better than any other, and relative to their size are the fastest and strongest creatures on the planet. (4 of 5)
