Your Worst Animal Nightmares

Image 1 / 10

‘Your Worst Animal Nightmares’ recounts a number of fatal and near fatal attacks by animals on humans in Australia over the past 50 years that have shocked the world. Among the jaw dropping tales, hear the story of teenager Nick Peterson who was fatally attacked by a Great White Shark while surfing with friends. Meet Gordon Wheatley, a Sydney businessman who was one of the first to benefit from newly invented anti-venom which narrowly saved his life after he stood on a deadly funnel web spider.  And, find out what happens when a tough local of the Australian outback is attacked by a large crocodile in front of his son.  This six-part series is often shocking, but is a fascinating look at infamous animal predators which have long been the cause of nightmares.
