There is a 1,200-mile strip of land on the southwestern coast of Africa where the searing Namib Desert meets the frigid Atlantic Ocean. Here, the basic elements of the earth exist in paradoxical extremes. The Namib, an extremely arid desert, is often cloaked in fog created by the cold, nutrient-rich Benguela Current. Fur seals and penguins divide their time between the sandy shore and the icy water of the sea, while ostrich, gemsbok and hyena roam the wind-swept dunes. Ingenious adaptations to this ancient desert’s extreme conditions allow these and other creatures to survive in an Eden called the Namib.

Bumblebees: the chubby, fuzzy cousins of the bee species. These amusing harbingers of spring are much friendlier than their relatives — the wasps — and are the most social members of their species. Join us as we take a closer look at their behavior, understand their biology, experience their unique abilities and marvel at their survival techniques. Compared with honeybees, these social insects have been poorly researched, although they’re at home in temperate regions throughout the Northern Hemisphere and South America. A few tropical species form colonies that last several years, but elsewhere only the summer’s new queens survive into the next spring. So the colonies remain small — typically about 50 to 500 individuals — and there is no need to store honey for hibernation, a fact that has kept honey-loving gourmets like us away from their often underground nests.

Where rivers provide year-round food, one of the world's largest and fiercest predators, the saltwater crocodile, lurks, waiting for its prey. But it's not all about hunting for these beasts; it's also about protecting their territory -- both their food and their females. That means they'll fight any beast to keep what's theirs ... even if it's one of their own kind.
Croc Labyrinth
Ever dive deep within the lair of the Nile crocodile? Wonder what could possibly be below? Nat Geo WILD is on a mission to find out. We'll embark on a unique diving adventure in Botswana's crocodile-infested Okavango Delta to find out more about these hidden nooks and how the reptiles use them. In the depth, we'll stumble across a crocodile labyrinth, a network hidden beneath the vast papyrus beds of the delta. This crocodile paradise is a haven for the underwater reptiles.
Crocodile King
The largest reptile on earth - the saltwater crocodile - is lurking in the rivers of Australia's Northern Territory. A master predator, each year this cunning croc is tested by nature's harsh extremes and must battle for dominance with its own kind. Using high-speed cameras and infrared technology, NGC reveals how this stealthy "salty," with senses and instincts honed over the ages, is able to retain King Croc status.
In the bays and harbors of residential Florida, the threat of a crocodile attack looms as humans become too comfortable around these intelligent predators. The Sunshine State looks to Australia for their know-how in controlling ever-expanding crocodile populations. If croc populations continue to grow rapidly, Florida may have to take a lead from Australia and begin capturing and hazing these animals for the safety of the people.

Deadly 60: Battle of Britain
To really see how eagles fly, Steve climbs into a wind tunnel in England with a Tawny eagle.

At night, he catches up with a pride of lions to witness their hunting and killing skills in the dark, proving just how deadly and vicious lions are.
Deadly 60: Carnivore Quest
Steve shows us how reading the tracks and signs left behind by animals can lead to fantastic encounters.

Deadly 60: Desert Devils
Steve travels to the Baja Peninsula in Mexico, where he finds a gruesome killer, a tarantula hawk wasp. It is the biggest wasp in the world and has a paralyzing sting that makes even Steve nervous. Then we'll encounter serpents, including a coachwhip snake that sneaks a bite at Steve's hand, a venomous red diamond and a Baja rattlesnake. But Steve doesn't stop his adventure there. We'll join him off the coast of Mexico as he dives to search for the "Red Devil".

Steve has a plan B, and heads for the Polar Zoo where they are studying Lynx.
Deadly 60: Gorilla Country
In the heart of Africa, Steve treks for miles in the Virunga Mountains of Uganda, where he finds a family of mountain gorillas — typically harmless vegetarians, but with their huge, muscular frames and lethal sense of loyalty, they'll defend their families to the death. On the way back to camp, Steve and the crew encounter a stern roadblock of fearsome olive baboons, and later get a little “present” thrown at them when they come too close to our closest relatives — chimpanzees.
Deadly 60: Jaguar Jungle
Adventurer Steve Backshall ventures deep into the jungles of Costa Rica in search of his toughest target yet — the jaguar. With the most powerful jaw of any big cat, the jaguar can puncture the skull of a large mammal in just one bite, making it the undisputed king of the forest. Next, he'll come face-to-face with one of the most feared animals in the Americas, the small but deadly fer de lance. Finally, Steve takes to the river during an electrical storm to go fishing for crocodiles.
Deadly 60: Killers of the Deep
It is an explorer's paradise with spectacular animals, but it's the creatures of the deep sea that Steve's on a mission to find.

Deadly 60: Monsters in the Dark
Back in the Philippines, Steve descends to the depths of the ocean hoping to encounter the brutal thresher shark, a mysterious predator that uses its death-dealing tail to beat through schools of fish.

Later, he'll dive off the edge of a rock with a camera in one hand to get up close and personal with one of the world's most venomous sea snakes.
Deadly 60: Monsters of the Abyss
Steve takes to the waters of Mozambique as he swims alongside the biggest fish in the sea—the whale shark.

Adventurer Steve Backshall ends his search for the Deadly 60 in the awesome flooded Amazon rain forest. It all kicks off in a flash when the crew spots a group of rare giant otters before they've even unpacked their cameras.

Deadly 60: Sand Strikers
Steve travels deep into the dunes of Namibia, where we'll meet the tiny but mighty spoor spider, which uses its cunning camouflage to surprise its victims before barbequing them on the hot desert sand.

In the deadly waters off the coast of South Africa, Steve searches for a fierce pack of hunters that can devour entire schools of fish — black tip reef sharks.

Back on land, he rappels down a cliff face to get within inches of a killer bee hive.
Deadly 60: Snake Assassins
Steve and the crew head back to Costa Rica to see which one of the region's most dangerous snakes deserves a spot on the Deadly 60. The boa constrictor is easily the most powerful, and the feared bushmaster has enough venom to bring down a buffalo, but how do they measure up against the eyelash pit viper, a snake so accurate it could catch a hummingbird on the wing? Steve demonstrates firsthand the hunting methods of each snake, and gets a little too close for comfort with a boa constrictor.
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.

Deadly 60: Titans of the North
Living in the icy waters of Vancouver is the Steller sea lion; a fully grown male can weigh as much as a car.

Finally, he is on a hunt for the black bear — a large but fast animal equipped with fearsome teeth and powerful jaws.
Deadly 60: Venom Kings
Steve and the team head to the Paradise Wildlife Park in Hertfordshire to take an in-depth look at venom and how it is used in the animal kingdom.

A mass dinosaur grave in western China contains fossils of a bizarre T. rex ancestor, a triceratops ancestor, an ancient crocodilian, and nearly 40 more species dating back 160 million years ago, a time when little is known about dinosaur history.
Coelacanth (SEEL-uh-kanth): a large fish with limblike fins, armored scales and a tail that no other living fish possesses. This prehistoric fish was thought to have died out with the dinosaurs in the great extinction.

Predator Fail
We’re used to seeing the natural world’s predators killing time after time. Predator hunts prey, predator wins right?  Wrong! Television is one thing, but real life in the wild is another story, our iconic predators fail more than we can imagine. Life for them is hard, and they have to be resilient to survive.  On paper, all predators have the essential qualities that make them faultless killers. Scores for strength, speed, strategy, weapons and teamwork can give us a hint of how successful a predator should be, but how does this hold up in the real world?  In the wild things don’t always go to plan, and we soon see that our predators struggle more often than not.

At the world's largest croc farm, the guys help wrangle a croc that is believed to have record-breaking potential.
Python Hunters: Bayou Roadtrip
This time on Python Hunters... With cold temperatures in Florida putting a freeze on python hunting, the guys head to Louisiana to conduct vital research on invasive reptile species. Hurricane Katrina dumped over a quarter million pets into the wild, including exotic snakes and reptiles, and the team wants to find out what's happened to them since. They visit an island slithering with venomous cottonmouth snakes, and later discover a large albino Burm coiled up beside a woman's hot tub. Joining a group of scientists, the guys patrol a highway at night looking for anything that slithers. Shawn and Greg visit the state's oldest alligator farm. And Shawn wades through a drainpipe to nab a gator taking refuge under a woman's driveway.
Python Hunters: Caimans of the Caribbean
Florida is in a deep freeze, so the Python Hunters take their version of a vacation — tracking invasive species in Puerto Rico.

They also comb a swamp for spectacled caiman — the island's largest invasive predators.
Python Hunters: Cane Toad Madness
The hunters are wrapping up their Australian adventure, but before Greg, Michael and Shawn head back to Florida they've still got some work to do. Along with snake catcher David Flack, they search for one of the only indigenous snakes that can eat the invasive and poisonous cane toad—the famed keelback snake. Back in Cairns, they tend to some injured pythons. They get to release two recovered sea turtles back into the wild—an event that everyone agrees was a highlight of the trip.
Python Hunters: Cobras in the City
The hunters are in Bangkok, Thailand, where a heavy monsoon season is resulting in an epic flood that's causing the flood barriers to fail for the first time in decades. They join forces with the snake rescue hotline, and they immediately get to work catching a green tree pit viper. At a local park that's been overrun by giant monitor lizards, Greg, Michael and Shawn get a little competitive with the local rangers to see who can snag the largest one.
Python Hunters: Deadly Down Under
The hunters continue their Australian mission of handling the most venomous, deadly and majestic animals on the continent. At the northern tip of the country, Greg, Michael and Shawn join biologist Jamie Seymour with his venom research. On a very successful night hunt, they manage to haul in a large number of sea snakes, including one particularly unusual specimen. The next morning is spent identifying, measuring, milking and tagging the snakes.
Python Hunters: Death by Viper
Fortunately, back-to-back cold winters have kept Florida's non-native Burmese python population in check, so the hunters are able to head out to tropical Costa Rica for other work. They join forces with a local conservationist and help him capture and relocate an American crocodile that's been invading some fish farms. They then head into the rain forest and track down three of the region's most venomous snakes—the Costa Rican eyelash viper, the bushmaster and the legendary fer-de-lance.
Python Hunters: Everglades Under Siege
Sean, Greg and Mike head to the edge of a sawgrass marsh to explore through knee-deep waters in search of pythons, and to explore the invasive species' predator-prey relationships. Birds and mammals prey on them as hatchlings and juveniles, and the American alligator, the apex predator of the Everglades, will prey on pythons of any age or size. By studying their environment, the team hopes to better understand what impact they're having on the ecosystem.
Python Hunters: Giants of Puerto Rico
This time on Python Hunters... With South Florida's earliest cold snap on record, the team's Burm captures are on the decline. And, after a massive storm douses their plans to smoke out the snakes on a farm, the hunters head to Puerto Rico - home to over 40 species of native and invasive reptiles. Their first stop is a research facility on a small island just off the coast. Once a zoo, it's now home to an invasive population of rare Cuban rock iguanas. And, as soon as they climb ashore, they're literally surrounded! A roadside souvenir shop features hordes of mounted reptiles for sale. And finally, the team hikes into the caves near Arecibo where endangered Puerto Rican boas hang from the vines, preying on bats as they fly by.
Python Hunters: Lizards Gone Wild
This time on Python Hunters… The team is branching out, and for the first time ever they're on the hunt for the elusive Nile monitor lizard. Their first stop is an infested Cape Coral canal, but spotting Niles on location proves to be difficult. Greg and Michael then join forces with a breeder who captures invasive species. And although they spot several Nile monitors and Greg even nabs one by the tail, a swift bite proves to be a successful getaway strategy. Fully armed, the team later returns with Shawn's new net gun, and this time, they're determined to bag their first-ever big lizard.
Python Hunters: Lizards of Oz
Greg, Michael and Shawn are on a once-in-a-lifetime Australian road trip searching for creatures they'd never get a chance to come across back in Florida. Michael wants to handle a perentie monitor—Australia's largest lizard—while Greg wants to get his hands on some of the biggest crocs on earth. Once on the road, they attempt to catch a speedy Australian sand monitor before cornering a couple of black-headed monitors in Palm Valley. They also help capture a dangerous king brown snake.
Python Hunters: Mother of All Snakes
This time on Python Hunters... Hoping to put a dent in the invasive snake population, the guys are determined to track down a massive breeding machine - a legend they call the Mother Burm. She could weigh a hundred pounds and be as long as 16 feet. And since her home is a 4,500-acre property in the Everglades, finding her won't be easy. With its abandoned buildings and pools, a derelict aquaculture facility provides the ideal snake habitat. The guys find telltale Burmese python tracks and, after rigging up an infrared camera, return to ground zero again and again, eventually taking their search underground. And when they finally spot a massive gator at the water's edge, Greg comes up with a theory about a turf battle.
Python Hunters: Rattlesnake Roundup
Along with a fellow snake enthusiast, Greg, Michael and Shawn head out in search of Florida's most abundant rattlesnake. Dusky pygmy rattlesnakes average only about 18 inches and have a rattle so small it's difficult for humans to hear—but the team still manages to fill a bucket with them, proving the population is not under threat. They then tour a medical toxin lab that contains more than 900 venomous snakes, and expert Carl Barden introduces them to two cobra species.
Python Hunters: Snake Infested Island
Greg, Michael and Shawn are in Guam, where a number of invasive reptiles are devastating the native creatures. Along with biologist James Stanford, the hunters go after brown tree snakes, which have already wiped out nearly a dozen species of birds, including the Guam rail. They then visit a sanctuary dedicated to preventing the extinction of the emblematic birds. The Python Hunters then become beetle hunters as they help control the island's coconut rhinoceros beetle population.
Python Hunters: Snake Invasion
This time on Python Hunters… It's a new season of hunting, and the guys are back in the Everglades to see if Florida's bitter winter has put a serious dent in the Burmese python population. Their first catch lands them in a gator's nest. Later, Mike and Greg comb the farm near the epicenter of the invasion. Greg scours a local swamp with his nine-year-old son. And finally, with Shawn's 16-year-old son Thorne along for the ride, the guys head deep into the Everglades for an overnight adventure in dangerous and unfamiliar terrain.
Python Hunters: Stalking the Anaconda
With the riverboat leaving in the morning, the hunters make the most of their last night in Peru, searching for elusive black caiman, some of which can grow to more than 18 feet. When they return home to Florida, Shawn celebrates the arrival of another record-breaking brood of albino gator hatchlings. The team then heads out into the Everglades to see if the invasive pythons are making a comeback. Luckily, they don't find any, but Shawn still decides to install some new infrared cameras.
Python Hunters: The Big Freeze
Burmese pythons hail from the tropical climate of Southeast Asia, yet over the past two decades they've established an invasive population, estimated in the thousands, in the Florida Everglades. Now, a cold front has hit the state, and frigid temperatures are threatening the species. The guys head out in the cold, treading through remote tree islands and limestone caves, braving alligators and venomous snakes to catch pythons and determine how the inclement weather has affected the population.
Python Hunters: The Perfect Storm
The Python Hunters tackle the debate over how Burmese pythons were established in the Everglades. The popular perception is that the snakes are the progeny of family pets released into the wild by irresponsible owners, or that a greenhouse containing hundreds of Burmese pythons was destroyed by Hurricane Andrew in 1992. We'll ride along with these expert hunters to determine the size, territory and health of the population to help reveal how to eradicate them and how they came to roam the land.
Python vs. Gator
The photo shows a six-foot alligator half inside a dead 13-foot Burmese python. How could a snake overpower one of Florida's largest and most terrifying native carnivores?
Queen of the Warthogs
In Africa, the warthog is a constant target for hungry predators, and for one warthog mother, "Half Tusk," the stakes couldn't be higher. She's lost at least half of her litter to predators over the past four years. This year she is preparing to defend her brood from the prowess of lions, leopards and cheetahs looking to make her offspring their next meal. But she can't watch them all the time, and the babies will have to face some challenges alone in order to survive.
Raccoon: Backyard Bandit
Raccoons that live in cities and towns are much more successful than their country cousins. In fact, they’re thriving with us. Their knack for mischief has earned them a reputation, but there’s way more to raccoons than just trashcan thievery. They are smart, adaptable and equipped with an array of incredible senses that allow them to maximize every opportunity humans provide. From using our sewer systems as underground highways, to infiltrating our chimneys and attics for den sites, they have become the ultimate urban operators. Take a look into a year in the life of the furry masked bandits that not only live in your neighborhood, but know it better than you do.

Rebel Monkeys: A New Dawn
Tarak is found dead and Kamal now faces the prospect of leading the Galta Gang. Zamir tries to attack the temple again but is finally caught by the monkey catcher. New babies are born into the Galta Gang, but in the city Zamir has also left a legacy - twins! There's double trouble on the horizon...
Rebel Monkeys: An Unlikely Hero
Zamir finally comes face to face with Rani as he saves her from a bachelor male heading her way. He later leads the Galta gang to an all-you-can-eat feast at Jaipur's central fruit market. Rani's former enemy has not only saved her, he's also fed the entire troop twice in one day. The only thing missing is a permanent place to call home. On that point, it seems Zamir's mission isn't over just yet. His eyes are set on the ultimate monkey residence--the Galta Temple.
Rebel Monkeys: Beggar's Banquet
Homeless on the streets, troop leader Rani guides the gang to Chandpole Temple. A bachelor troop arrives on the scene and is delighted to find a crowd of females, which are quick to flirt with the newcomers. North of the city, Zamir's luck in the countryside runs out as he gets trapped in the back of a truck heading to Jaipur -- the Pink City.
Rebel Monkeys: Calamity
In Jaipur, things go from bad to worse for Rani and her rhesus macaque troop. Her alpha male has been captured by monkey catchers; her baby son Teejay is missing; and she's lost her beloved temple home to the langur monkeys. To make matters worse, Rani has no idea her old enemy Zamir is back in town and on her trail. And tragedy strikes at the animal clinic when little Teejay struggles for his life.
Rebel Monkeys: Cops and Robbers
Zamir makes his way back to Jaipur, but he nervously walks the streets as he tries to solve the puzzle of where he is. Meanwhile, Rani's youngest daughter, Esha, raids a tailor and steals turbans. Little do they know that the police have caught up with them and called for reinforcements -- a monkey catcher. The gang escapes, but Rani notices her son, tiny Teejay, is missing. The city is no place for a little lost macaque, especially one as adventurous as Teejay.
Rebel Monkeys: Deliverance
Rani's old enemy Zamir has rejoined the gang, and is leading them back toward their old home. Langur monkeys stand guard, but devious Zamir launches an attack and chases them out. Rani's beloved Galta Temple is hers once more. The future of the city's monkeys is unpredictable. Only one thing is certain: Jaipur will always have Rebel Monkeys.
Rebel Monkeys: Divided We Stand
For the past few months, Jaipur's Galta Gang have been happy in their temple home. But as the world's economy plummets, one troop of rhesus macaques must change their luxury lifestyle. The Galta Gang faces a big problem: not only is there less food on offer at the temple, but as the troop expands to nearly 100, there are more mouths to feed. The little food offered by pilgrims is quickly seized by Rani, Kamal and their 40 or so comrades--a sign that a divide in the Galta Gang has already started. The splinter troop, headed by Devdan and Jaya, must cope with life outside the temple walls. It's a time where friendships are challenged and lives placed on the line.
Rebel Monkeys: Drug Raid
Desperate to prove his leadership, the Galta gang's feeble alpha male, guides the troop to what looks like a jackpot -- a busy fruit market. The same fruit market their former allies, the Splinter group now occupy. On the other side of the city, little Teejay fights for his life, but when a concerned passerby comes to his rescue, it is a waiting game to see if he will pull through. Back in the city, a monkey catcher interferes Zamir's with his search for the Galta gang.
Rebel Monkeys: Fang's Market
Little Kavi, our electroshocked monkey, is taken to an animal hospital, while the rest of the troop search the streets for food and fun. A raid on the city fruit market seems like easy pickings until a rival troop appears, led by the meanest macaque in town — Fang. The Galta flock is chased away and returns to the safety of their temple home for the night. But the restless younger monkeys set off to steal a midnight feast from a roadside merchant in a battle of primate wits and reflexes.
Rebel Monkeys: Hard Times
Members of the Galta gang are banished from the Galta Temple by their former queen, leading the teenage monkeys to form a new troop called the Splinter group. They are living on the rough streets of Jaipur scrounging for food when they find their new home where all their needs are met: a luxury hotel. Just as the troop settles into their new residence, they get the shock of their lives when a man disguised as a giant monkey patrols the area for troublesome macaques.
Rebel Monkeys: Heroes and Villains
Just before Zamir launches his latest attack on the Temple, Kavi suddenly realizes he's joined up with the wrong gang and heads back to the Galta gang. As Zamir and his troop launch their assault a huge battle erupts at the Temple - with so much at stake it could be a fight to the death.
Rebel Monkeys: Home Hunters
The Galta gang realizes the harsh reality of life on the streets after being kicked out of the Galta Temple by a troop of langur monkeys. Meanwhile, the exiled teenagers of the Splinter group claim the fruit market it as their territory, while Zamir enjoys living in the country learning new techniques of stealing food.
Rebel Monkeys: Missing in Action
Arch-enemy Zamir heads straight for his old home -- the Galta Temple -- determined to keep a low profile. Little lost Teejay reappears from a storm drain and heads for his former home, the Galta Temple, but is shocked to see no sign of his mother or family members. On the streets alone, little Teejay leaves the temple and suffers a terrible electric shock while climbing a power cable. If he isn't found soon, he's almost certain not to survive.
Rebel Monkeys: Monsoon Showdown
Zamir launches a leadership bid that ends in disaster when a baby is fatally wounded but Tarak stands firm and the pretender to his throne is driven out of the group. The monsoon finally comes, ending the crippling drought and triggering a spectacular celebratory festival. Hospitalized Kavi has pulled through and is gaining strength - he'll soon be fit enough to be released. And to top it all the exiled monkeys finally make it back to the temple and the Galta gang is reunited.
Rebel Monkeys: One Bad Apple
In India's capital, New Delhi, the government is clamping down on the hoards of marauding macaques that are terrorizing the city's population. Offices have been ransacked, sensitive documents exposed, government officials attacked, and worst of all, monkeys have been held directly responsible for the deaths of several Delhi citizens. The supreme court has decreed that the city must be ‘monkey-free'. Life for the Galta gang has been peaceful for the last six months.
Rebel Monkeys: Return of the Rebel
The exiled Zamir nurses his grudge against the Galta Gang and sets about acquiring a new troop so that he has enough support to take them on. Fang, Jaipur's most notorious mobster, could make a powerful ally, but when Zamir tries to gain access to Fang's market gang by flirting with one of his females, he only succeeds in making another enemy.
Rebel Monkeys: Rising Forces
The Galta gang find their Temple home under threat from a troop of langurs. In Delhi, captive languars are used as a monkey police force, patrolling the city with a human handler and scaring marauding macaques away from important buildings. Meanwhile, the Holi festival of color interrupts Zamir's attempt to take over control of Galta temple.
Rebel Monkeys: Searching for Sanctuary
The central fruit market is completely out of reach for the Splinter group of teenage monkeys, as city macaque heavyweight Fang defends his territory more fiercely than ever. Desperate for a meal, the group invades a suburban school playground and raids kids' packed lunches. And, still in search of a new place to settle, the crew later finds a possible new location to call home.
Rebel Monkeys: Skid Row
Weakened by hunger, alpha male Tarak's position as king of the Galta troop is precarious and the devious Zamir plots to overthrow him. If the troop doesn't find food soon alpha female Rani may be forced to abandon her nursing baby Esha in order to save herself. But a devout Hindu bearing bags of fruit and treats appears and the desperate monkeys enjoy a feast fit for royalty.
Rebel Monkeys: Street Life
Life at Jaipur's Galta Temple has become difficult, with not enough food to go round. Leaving the temple unguarded is a risky move, but the Galta gang is getting desperate and decides to venture into the city streets in search of food. After almost getting captured by a monkey catcher, they realize the streets are too dangerous, forcing them to head back to their temple home. But during their time away, the langur monkeys have taken over the temple, leaving the Galta gang homeless.
Rebel Monkeys: Taxi Raid
Previously captured troop monkeys are released in the countryside, far from their temple home, and are completely lost in the forest. Back at the Galta Temple, the food shortage caused by the drought becomes even more dire. With their hunger reaching desperation, they break into a car, stealing groceries inside and destroying the interior. Back at the animal sanctuary, Kavi's injuries from the massive electric shock may be too much for him to recover from.
Rebel Monkeys: The Apartment Job
Meet the Galta gang, a 60-strong troop of rhesus macaques, as they make their way from their home in the Galta Temple over rooftops and across a tangle of electric cables through the streets of Jaipur, in northwestern India. Disaster strikes after they raid a home through an open window. The troop makes a hasty getaway when the owner notices, and Kavi, a juvenile monkey, rushes right into live electric wires, leaving him fighting for his life.
Rebel Monkeys: The Great Escape
Zamir and his new gang explore some new turf and raid an office when a businessman goes out on an errand. They ransack the premises but find nothing to eat. Zamir and his troop are still hungry after their fruitless office raid. Vasu, the alpha male has found food at the grain market, but the monkey catcher has been called. After evading capture, Zamir is the oldest and fittest male left in the troop - it seems he's fast-tracked it to the top.
Rebel Monkeys: The Monkey Catcher
The monsoon rains are running late, creating shortages of food and water. The temple's natural spring becomes a tempting target for other monkey troops, so the Galta gang must guard it. Hunger finally forces them to send a small band to raid on a cart of dried food, but the owner calls for the monkey catcher. A handful of the Galta gang are captured, further diminishing their strength even as they must now defend their temple home against an invasion of larger langur monkeys.
Rebel Monkeys: Trading Places
Vasu has been trapped by the monkey catcher and transported far out of town, leaving Zamir to assume command of his own troop. Zamir and his new troop raid a jewelery store and break into a hotel store room leading to a run-in with little Kavi who becomes the troop's latest recruit.
Rebel Monkeys: Urban Exile
Bipin and the Galta gang splinter group wake in an abandoned temple on the edge of Jaipur. There's nothing to eat or drink, and last night they heard terrifying sounding creatures prowling the fields nearby. Troop leader Devdan faces the biggest decision of his life.

Return of the White Lion
White lions occur naturally in only one place on earth - the Timbavati region in South Africa. But very few white lions have been witnessed in the wild over the past decade. Today, most white lions are born in captivity. Their rarity and beauty has condemned them to a destiny where they have become curiosities and hunting trophies. But some people are trying a new approach with white lions. Inspired by the local Shangaan tribe, which has revered white lions for centuries, Linda Tucker and her Global White Lion Protection Trust plan to bring a handful of white lions into a large enclosure near Timbavati. They hope, ultimately, to release the animals into the wild. Scientists and conservationists, however, question the merit of such a venture and fear its consequences. They maintain that white lions are of little scientific conservation value, that they struggle to survive in the wild and that their inbred genes may harm existing lion populations. Watch a journey filled with challenge, controversy and tragedy. Will the lions adapt or will they fall victim to the dangers of their nearly-wild reserve? And should they be released into the wider world?

Secret Life of Elephants: Battle of the Bulls
The drought is over and the rains have arrived, hopefully in time for baby Breeze’s survival. As hundreds of elephants descend on the reserve for the breeding season, the research team hits its busiest time of the year. With the help of new technology, Saba Douglas-Hamilton tracks down the biggest land animals on earth: the mighty bull elephants. But even Saba is keeping her distance when Rommel, a dangerous bull who once flattened a truck and tried to kill two of the team’s researchers, arrives on the scene. Outside the reserve, Onesmas Kahindi investigates two mysterious elephant deaths — a sign that poachers may be operating in the area. Meanwhile, researcher David Daballen and his team launch a life-or-death operation to save a baby elephant in trouble.
Secret Life of Elephants: Trial By Fire
Baby elephant Breeze is growing up fast, but dry season is approaching, and she’s still most vulnerable as the youngest elephant on the reserve. Her older brother Buster also seems intent on getting himself and Breeze into trouble. Outside the reserve, more problems are brewing, and Iain Douglas-Hamilton sends his daughter Saba on a mission to help an elephant, Mountain Bull, whose migration route has put him on a collision course with farmers and villagers. Back in the reserve, a devastating drought tightens its grip, and Breeze and her family are forced to compete with other elephant families for food and water. Since she’s still so young and defenseless, will Breeze survive these difficult times?
Secret Life of Elephants: Welcome to the Family
In Kenya’s Samburu National Reserve, one elephant family welcomes a new calf named Breeze into the world. But observing researchers are concerned, because the mother’s last calf died and Breeze is most vulnerable in her first few weeks. Soon she’ll face her first big test when she follows her family across a river. Meanwhile, elephant researchers Iain and Saba Douglas-Hamilton have a challenge of their own: They need to fit a radio collar to a female elephant named Anastasia, and they’ll need to get through her protective family to do it. The research team investigates when one of their best-known bull elephants is found dead and the circumstances are suspicious.

Wild Congo: King Kong's Lair
The Congo: more powerful and dangerous than any other river yet a sanctuary and home for some of the most wonderful creatures on our Earth. Our closest relatives can be found hidden deep inside the dense jungles that surround the Congo and its feeding rivers, with three of the world's four species of great apes living in the Congo Basin. Although they all live so close together, these apes exhibit extreme differences in behaviour. These differences are above all clear in the case of the Bonobos, which developed their own very unique solution to conflicts after being cut off from fellow members of their species by the water masses of the Congo: sex! The tides of the Congo are home to a variety of creatures, for example fish with long noses or gigantic trunks, all of which have adapted to the extreme living conditions in their own unique way. As a result, the Congo has become a test laboratory of evolution and an El Dorado of biodiversity.
Wild Congo: River of Monsters
The Congo: the second largest river on Earth! The Congo rises as a brook in the north of Zambia, which provides a stage for one of the world's largest migrations of mammals. On its journey into the west, the river constantly increases in both size and power, just like its inhabitants, for example the mysterious Shoebill, one of the largest birds on Earth, which lurks in the dense papyrus of the Bangweulu Wetlands. Metre-long pythons hunt down their prey in the trees while powerful hippopotamus bulls battle it out for control of the water. In order to survive in the Congo, these animals have had to adapt to the river's extreme conditions, which has enabled evolution to create some truly unique creatures. Fish with lungs or wings and fish that are able to hunt on land are all prime examples of animals that can only be found in the Congo.
Wild Costa Rica
There is a place on earth where life and death are close companions. Despite the constant threat of danger, a wealth of creatures flourish here — sustained in the struggle for survival by the bounty the land and sea provide. The place is an Eden called Costa Rica. Nestled in the tropics of Central America, Costa Rica calls itself the land of “pura vida” — pure life. Its misty rain forests, rivers and beautiful white sand beaches are home to one of the most diverse assemblages of life on Earth. From giant crocodiles battling for mates along the coastline to howler monkeys swinging from treetops high above the forest floor, the beautiful Costa Rica ecosystem is teeming with activity.
