Series 1 - Episode 4

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

Dom braves the remote wilderness of Namibia while on the hunt for Africa's largest, deadliest scorpion - parabuthus villosus, commonly known as the black hairy thick-tailed scorpion. This beast can not only kill a human but also spray its venom up to a metre. Dom's journey to find the scorpion takes him into spectacular desert scenery.

Dom’s journey takes him into spectacular desert scenery, as he hikes up rugged mountain trails and across vast sand seas. On the way he survives a violent thunderstorm and flash floods; treads in the footprints of dinosaurs; and encounters a rock monitor, a meercat dining on a scorpion, a solifuge, a whip snake, and the lethally venomous horned adder. Dom also gets to meet an amazing array of different scorpions, including, eventually, the nastiest of the lot.

    wonderful series Dominic, but can we get a different camera man please, or atleast give him some training??? the wobbly shots and shooting from one scene to another and not focusing in on the wildlife are not only making me feel nauseus, but also threatening a sceizure to my brain!!! PLEASE, PLEASE QUIT shaking the camera around and let us enjoy the presenter and the wildlife/scenery - thanking you xxx

    Great program Dominic, love creepy crawlies. Has your photographer got a problem with holding the camera still for more than point 5 of a second, rather spoils the series when your attentions keeps being broken because of the camera high jinx.

    I really enjoy this show and I missed it on Friday so I'm glad I can catch up here. There wasn't a preview of next week's episode at the end, is there going to be one?
