Fierce sees BAFTA Award winning TV naturalist Steve Backshall seeking out the world's most fierce animals in this brand-new commission for ITV, his first for the broadcaster.
The 6x60' series takes Steve on six epic adventures to Guyana, Mexico, Namibia, Indonesia, Australia and South Africa, where along the way he encounters the world's most venomous snake, the Inland Taipan, gets perilously close to the largest carnivorous reptile in South America, the giant Black Caiman, attempts to track down the endangered Giant River Otter and stakes out the feisty and fearless Honey Badger.
As well as going eye-to-eye with American Crocodiles, swimming amongst Bull Sharks and narrowly escaping the jaws of the extraordinary Komodo Dragon, Steve also meets the people living cheek by jowl with these dangerous predators and those who have miraculously survived being attacked by them.
The beauty of the locations Steve visits belies the ‘kill or be killed' reality of the environment for its wild inhabitants, which have developed fascinating and fierce physical adaptations and behaviours to survive in them, as he discovers.
