One of the largest rivers in the world, the Congo is home to some of the world's most fascinating creatures. This program follows the 2,900-mile-long river on its journey from its source in Zambia through marshland and rainforests. The shoebill, elephant fish and blind eel are just some of the wildlife in the area some biologists call the cradle of evolution. The river also causes chimpanzees and bonobos, who live on opposite sides of the Congo, to have completely different social systems despite being anatomically similar. Further down the line, where the river flows into the Atlantic Ocean, newborn turtles begin their lifelong battle against the ocean.

Jack Hanna has hosted TV shows about wildlife since the premiere of "Jack Hanna's Animal Adventures" in 1993 and has become a zoological authority in his 30-plus years working at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium in Ohio. On "Wild Countdown," he uses his knowledge and experience to present count-down lists of rare, fascinating creatures -- appropriate, given Hanna's many appearances on "Late Show With David Letterman." Topics include beasts equipped with armor, deceptively cute -- but dangerous -- animals, and adorable baby critters.
