When that space gets too close for comfort, it's time to call for help. On this series, four teams of animal relocators are followed as they respond to frantic calls from people who have come into unwanted contact with critters, creepy crawlies and other nuisance wildlife.

The Billie Swamp Safari offers visitors a chance to come face to face with the animals, ranging from ostriches and bison to venomous snakes and raccoons. The goal -- in line with Native Americans' love of harmony with nature -- is to immerse the visitors in the wild.

The park's director, Ed Woods, and his tough team of self-described "swamp men" patrol the land to move animals out of dangerous situations and rescue animals in need.

Discovery Channel takes the ubiquitous survival show theme to the next level by stripping it to its bare essentials. In "Naked and Afraid," complete strangers -- usually a man and a woman -- meet in a very unique way: They're stranded in a dangerous, desolate location, without food or water, and they're completely naked. Each episode follows the adventurers as they attempt to survive on their own with nothing but a personal item and the knowledge that the only prize is their pride and sense of accomplishment. Because there is no other choice, competitors quickly get to know one another -- and their surroundings -- and hope that their instincts, survival skills and intestinal fortitude serve them well.
