Alligators & Crocodiles
Alligators and crocodiles have occupied the top of the food chain for thousands of years. These fearsome predators have survived for so long partly because they've never lost their edge - their unchallenged ability to snatch, savage, and swallow any living thing that comes too close to the water's edge, including the unwary human.

This thrilling program dives right into their watery lair, giving you a rare close-up of their showy mating habits, their subtle efforts at communicating with each other, and - of course - their voracious pursuit of prey.

The program also captures these ancient animals in a new and unexpected place, the Florida suburbs - to where they've been driven by their shrinking habitat and growing numbers.
In the highlight of the program, the call goes out to Pesky Critters, a company that routinely wrestles wayward, ten-foot-long gators off neighbourhood patios and out of backyard pools.

Turtles & Tortoises

This program goes into a shell - perhaps the most important one in all of nature's wild. It's a shell that encases, protects, and defines the turtle and the tortoise, two of the slowest moving and longest-surviving animals on the planet.

You see them adapt to just about any climate, live on land or in the sea, defend themselves against sharks and other predators, and sometimes reach advanced old ages usually reserved for trees.

They survived whatever killed the dinosaurs thousands of years ago, and experts say they can survive most global disasters. But is their slow, steady race gradually coming to an end? Are humans hunting them to extinction just to gorge on turtle meat and turtle soup?

This program emerges as an informative and entertaining portrait of one of the most storied and recognizable group of animals anywhere.
