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.
