Speed Kills

Brace yourself for a high-speed adventure through rainforests, African savannahs, and watery underworlds as we track the animal kingdom's fastest predators. Follow cheetahs, whose land speed has gone unchallenged for 10 million years, chameleons, whose ballistic tongue strikes its target at 900 MPH, and the mantis shrimp, whose punch is so fast it vaporizes water in its path. We capture every minuscule movement at 1,000 frames-per-second, so you won't miss one graphic detail of this fast-paced, fascinating world. (Source: Smithsonian Channel)

Episode Info

Prev: 2x03 -- Dark Underworld (Sep/03/2014)

Enter the rainforest's impenetrable understory, a damp world of shadows where the sun never shines and weird predators like velvet worms, big brown bats, and orange baboon tarantulas strike at lightning speeds. Witness these creatures' spectacular movements, too fast for the human eye to see, and discover their hunting secrets. We look under every rock and behind every tree in high-definition detail to reveal how these soldiers of evolution are geared to fight.
