Dominic Monaghan’s Wild Things (8 x 60′) – In a series of spectacular and epic adventures, British actor Dominic Monaghan (Lost, Lord of the Rings) travels the globe to find – and then handle – some of the biggest, baddest and scariest creatures on the planet. Among his potentially lethal quests… a journey deep into a toxic cave in Venezuela to find Scolopendra – a giant and highly venomous flesh-eating centipede; a head-on encounter in the Amazon Jungle with a multi-million-strong colony of lethal army ants – reputedly capable of killing and devouring an animal the size of a cow ; a hunt for Africa’s largest and deadliest scorpion in the searing deserts of Namibia; and a trek through the Cameroon highlands in search of one of the world’s largest and rarest insects – the White Goliath Beetle. Guided by locals and expert scientists, Dominic immerses himself in the local cultures he encounters – and he needs all the help he can get, because his journeys lead him into real danger as he takes on jungles, swamps, deserts and mountains, and a terrifying cast of lethal animals that live in them.
