More About This show

On a string of Southern Indonesian islands, poisonous predators lurk, each with its own toxic cocktail suited to its hunting style. Some bite. Some sting. Some strike quickly, while others deliver their own slow brand of death. Venom expert Dr. Bryan Fry is on a mission to uncover these creatures' venomous secrets. Join him on a journey fraught with danger as he risks it all to get up close and personal with vipers, stonefish, and more. The ultimate encounter is with the beast sitting on top of the island food chain, the Komodo dragon.
