Steve takes a look at what makes the Deadly 60 animals deadly. He examines a bird of prey to show how its lightweight skeleton helps it fly and maneuver so effortlessly. Steve also looks at the skeleton of a python, explaining how its hundreds of ribs give it the strength and anchor for its muscles. He compares the skulls of a mako shark and a tiger shark, showing how their teeth are perfect for catching and eating their prey.
