Next Episode of Africa's Deadliest is
Africa's Deadliest explores the deepest, darkest depths of Africa, to come face to face with the deadliest predators. Understand how this diverse landscape has sculpted an array of Africa's predators and who has made it to the top of the food chain. From the dolphin armies of the ocean to the masters of ambush on the savannahs to the most poisonous reptiles of the deserts, discover the stealth, the speed, deception and weaponry of Africa's Deadliest.
Travel to the deepest, darkest depths of Africa and see how the deadliest predators use different techniques to kill their prey. Lions use an organized ambush tactic, fanning lionesses out behind the prey and stalking it into position for a faster lion to attack. A vine snake's brilliant, barklike camouflage and uncanny ability to hold the length of its body horizontal and move like a branch in the wind make it a deadly predator.
Alone they may be weak, but with strength in numbers, some African creatures are deadly. Wild dogs the size of household pets conquer prey more than 10 times their size, and the tiny mongoose's tight family unit keeps it out of trouble. Buffalo travel in herds up to 1,000 strong, and when threatened, they attack in force. During the annual Sardine Run, a super-pod of common dolphins up to 5,000 strong rely on their military precision to outmaneuver sharks and feed on the plentiful sardines.
The 'alienlike' jaws of a moray eel and the remarkably fast strike speed of a puff adder snake are just two of the deadly weapons featured in Africa's Deadliest: Lethal Weapons. During mating season, male elephants duke it out with their massive tusks that grow to 10 feet long. A moray eel uses a second set of jaws in the back of its throat to snatch prey. The octopus camouflages itself until a hapless victim wanders to close.
