Short | 01:58

More About This show

Few creatures are more fearsome than snakes, and in Asia that fear is realized hundreds of times each day. The continent is home to the world's most lethal serpents, but which of its scores of slithering predators is the deadliest? Join venom expert Bryan Fry on his cross-continental quest to find the perfect serpentine killer. His search puts him face to face with vipers, sea kraits, cobras, coral snakes and more. Knowing the answer could help Fry save lives...if it doesn't kill him first!
