- HUMAN PREY brings you the gripping stories of those who survived savage animal attacks -

The fear of being attacked and eaten alive by a wild animal is a primeval, deeply rooted, universal dread. It is the stuff of fairy tales, horror films and nightmares. But for some people it is a terrifying reality. Tune into Animal Planet's new series HUMAN PREY, and hear the harrowing stories of individuals who have been viciously attacked by wild animals and lived to tell the tale.

Humans have long been at the top of the food chain, but what happens when the predator becomes prey? Can we survive against animals that are built stronger and faster than us? In an event where animals are guided by sheer killer instinct, mere seconds of ingenuity could make a difference between life and death. HUMAN PREY brings you the amazing stories of those who have been attacked, and how they managed to survive despite the odds. See what happens in situations where humans have to defend themselves against an attack. From Great White sharks to grizzly bears, coyotes to crocodiles, witness incredible tales of those who have narrowly escaped the claws and jaws of death.
