Series 1 - Episode 1

To view this page ensure that Adobe Flash Player version 10.1.0 or greater is installed.

Dominic journeys into the wilds of Venezuela in search of a remote cave rumoured to house the world’s largest centipede: scolopendra gigantica is an aggressive, venomous carnivore that is rumoured to snatch bats right out of the air. To get to his prey, Dom first runs the gamut of Caracas traffic and army checkpoints, then finds himself abseiling into a toxic cave and hiking through a snake-infested jungle. Along the way he encounters an array of fascinating animals, including a false chameleon, a sloth, a deadly neotropical rattlesnake and a tarantula.

  • Series 1 - Episode 2

    Dom travels deep into the heart of the Ecuadorian Amazon to meet a four million-strong colony of venomous army ants.

    Wow! The bit when it ate the bat was gross but fantastic! We usually we don't get to see this sort of footage so I thought it was great that we get to see it doing its thing ;) Can't wait to see the next one, the army ants look interesting.

    Almost an hour of filler and then a couple of minutes of a centipede feeding on a bat. Dom is a pleasant, likeable guy but remove the filler and you're left with about 10 minutes of pertinent footage.

    For someone who is supposedly an expert and is extremely interested in such thing, how come he didnt know that the tarantula (Chromatopelma cyaneopubescens) was a reasonably common species kept in captivity ?

    I'm curious! We are in a cloud forest, but we hear a screaming Piha (Lipaugus vociferans) in the background. Range:600m: Amazon Basin species! Has anybody recorded this bird in cloud forests of Venez.?

    Just a question probably a stupid one but why can't I view this in the United States. It keeps telling me I can't view from my current country.
