Steve Backshall journeys to the remote Hawaiian Islands in search of three very different deadly carnivores.

Steve Backshall journeys to the remote Hawaiian Islands in search of three very different deadly carnivores. After days of searching the open waters for the mighty oceanic whitetip shark, Steve eventually comes literally nose to nose with this fearsome predator. On land Steve finds a most surprising predator in the forest, a carnivorous caterpillar that captures unsuspecting insects with its lightning-fast strike, something that has to be seen in super slow motion to be believed. Back underwater Steve wants to find out just how much might is in a moray eel's bite. With a double set of jaws and piercing teeth, this true marine monster destroys the deadly bite gauge within seconds.
