Deadly 60: Big Cat Battleground

Tonight! Monday, July 11 at 10PM ET/PT on Nat Geo WILD!

Africa’s big cats are among the most iconic predators.  Steve travels to Namibia, a land of rolling dunes, sand and plenty of dangerous wildlife.  Steve dons a camouflage suit for a once-in-a-lifetime experience that gets him closer to a wild leopard than he ever hoped.  At night, he catches up with a pride of lions to witness their hunting and killing skills in the dark, proving just how deadly and vicious lions are.  And, who says small spiders are harmless?  We’ll meet a spoor spider — tiny, but mighty!  They’ll take down dune ants over twice their size with their legs by barbecuing them alive on the searing African sand.

Also airing tonight, Thailand’s Killer Cats!

Monday, July 11 at 10:30PM ET/PT on Nat Geo WILD

In Thailand, a land known for its exotic animals, Steve comes face-to-face with the longest venomous snake in the world, the king cobra, whose bite could kill an elephant. Then we’ll meet two of Thailand’s killer cats: the rare clouded leopard, a flamboyant feline with a taste for treetops and hunting in little or no light; and the fishing cat, known for hunting in the water. Finally, Steve dons his gear to climb a building in Bangkok to illustrate the abilities of one of the world’s best climbers — the Tokay gecko is armed with a strong jaw and extremely sharp teeth, making it one of the most vicious predators in its species. Although small, the Tokay has tiny hairs on its toes that allow it to grip to surfaces, making for a quick climber. Will Steve be able to out climb this speedy creature?
