High Noon

The setting of our gila monster showdown in Ghost town.

Next Airing:

Journey to the most inhospitable environments in the country -- the deserts of the West. The creatures that live here are some of the toughest in the land, including vultures, the undertakers of the desert, and hawks, who hunt and roam the desert like a biker gang. And get up-close access to possibly the most vicious desert-dweller of all, the scorpion, whose diet is made up of ... mostly other scorpions. Only the toughest of the tough can outwit their enemies and survive here.
