Not all animals are meant to be domesticated and kept as household pets. Many wild animals, by definition, are rough and rowdy, often leading to out-of-bounds behavior or savage instincts run amok. This series showcases jaw-dropping moments captured by cameras, including attacks on people and other animals, "believe it or not" encounters, and animals that portray human traits. Heroic acts of bravery, narrow escapes and unpredictable incidents are also featured in the hourlong episodes.
Put up your dukes -- er, paws -- and prepare to discover epic, bone-shattering clashes between some of the world's deadliest predators. From lions, tigers and bears to meerkats, mongoose and mice, the series features testosterone-induced battles between some of the biggest, baddest and often surprising fighters in the animal kingdom, revealing the extraordinary motivations and strategies that fuel each incredible brawl.
Aquatic ecologist Zeb Hogan gets up close and personal with bizarre giants of the water, specimens equally enormous in proportion and odd in appearance. Among other adventures, Hogan investigates flying fish from Asia that are invading America's waterways, and he searches for one of North America's toothiest and most-misunderstood monster fish, the alligator gar. Some of the species Hogan encounters have survived for centuries but now face the threat of extinction, and he presents groundbreaking research undertaken to protect them.
In the varied forms of veterinary medicine, Dr. Susan Kelleher's practice may be one of the more unusual. Known as Dr. K, she runs South Florida's Broward Avian and Exotics Animal Hospital, and this series follows the staff as it cares for rabbits, ferrets, foxes, fish, birds, reptiles, marsupials, and even primates. As do some other vets, Kelleher thinks domesticating wild animals like monkeys is a bad idea, but that feeling doesn't interfere with her taking care of them: "If it will fit through the door, I'll treat it," she says.
