Killer Crocs

Image 1 / 5

They have the stealth of a fully trained SAS sniper, the underwater speed and agility of a cheater and the terrifying looks of a prehistoric monster. These factors combined make the crocodile one frightening and efficient killing machine. In this one-off special, croc-obsessed zoologist Dr. Adam Britton investigates the sudden disappearances, violent attacks and fatal consequences that are the result of encounters with killer crocodiles. The leading authority on crocodilian-human conflict, Britton is on a mission to learn more about the increasingly frequent crocodile attacks around the world, and figure out ways to stop them. Focusing on croc-attack hotspots around Darwin, Britton examines multiple stories of bone-chilling attacks: from the shocking account of a man who wrestled with the reptile that attached itself to his wife's torso; to the tragic report of a group of teenagers who watched in horror as their friend swam into his death in the jaws of a crocodile. Can he find a solution that will protect both humans and crocodiles and protect more terrible attacks?
