Deadly 60: Tarantula Army

Deadly 60: Tarantula Army
The islands of the Philippines are a paradise for deadly animals, including the water monitor, a lethal lizard with bacteria-covered teeth that can instantly infect the wounds of its prey. Then, it's an arachnophobe's worst nightmare when Steve makes his way into a dark cave covered in tarantulas. Back in the forest, we'll see a colorful killer with venom toxic enough to take down birds and lizards in seconds — the mangrove cat snake.
