About Deadly 60

Adventurer and naturalist Steve Backshall has one mission: to travel the globe in search of 60 of the world's deadliest animals. On Deadly 60, Steve travels to five continents to find the most venomous, lethal creatures on our planet, including the “red devil” squid in Mexico, the tarantula hawk wasp, the giant Pacific octopus, and the raccoon. We’ll experience close encounters with all kinds of striking wildlife, and with each animal featuring dangerous characteristics, we'll see what makes these animals “king” of their habitat.
