Scenes from Monster Week
Monster Week kicks off with Ten Deadliest Snakes, a three-part series hosted by British wildlife adventurer Nigel Marven, who dodges snapping jaws and vicious fangs in the United States, Costa Rica and South Africa, while searching for the world’s most lethal serpents. To make his list, he will go anywhere and everywhere—pristine jungles, rocky deserts, rubbish dumps and even the city wasteland.

On Nature’s Most Wanted: Croczilla, join wildlife cameramen Jim and Jason on their quest to track down and relocate a gigantic 4.5-metre crocodile—dubbed “Croczilla”—that is tormenting a local village in the Caribbean Republic of Belize. The boys’ job is to investigate the attacks on local inhabitants by interviewing the victims and tracking down the beast before locals take matters into their own hands and kill the endangered animal.

In Man-Eating Zombie Cats, learn about an incurable zombie-like pathogen—the canine distemper virus—that is spreading among the world’s big cats, desensitising their fear of people. These mindless killers are ruthless and out of control, having developed a sensational thirst for human blood. The documentary looks at some chilling cases in the hunt for the truth including the killing of innocent children in Nepal, the mauling of a forest ranger in Colorado and eating of a hunter in Siberia.

Then, trace the ultimate assassins in Man-Eating Super Wolves. With razor sharp teeth, killer instincts, and senses so precise they can hear your beating heart and smell your fear, these wolves are threatening humans like never before, even forming destructive, unstoppable super-packs. This special travels to Siberia, the epicenter of terror, where the residents of the village of Verkhoyansk are in a battle for their lives with a roving pack of 400 ravenous wolves that have already killed horses, dogs and several children. Not only are their numbers rising at an alarming rate, but these wolves are growing bolder and more deadly by the day. With attacks also happening in the America in states like Alaska, Idaho and Minnesota, what, if anything, can stop these killers mobs?
