(Got it? Rate it.)
Category: DVDs/Science and Space

The globe learned on December 26, 2004, that tsunamis can bring death and devastation to the world's coastlines. The product of undersea earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, tsunamis can race across oceans at more than 500 miles an hour, leaving a huge wake of destruction when they hit shore. Because it is difficult for scientists to predict how large these massive waves can be, tsunamis are one of the least understood of nature's forces, and one of the most dangerous. With insight from some of the scientific community's foremost researchers, and vivid accounts from past tsunami survivors, Tsunami: Killer Wave depicts nature at its most extreme, profiles the efforts being made to curb its effects, and illustrates the financial, physical and emotional toll it can leave on its victims.

According to Snake Hunter and Herpetologist Zoltan Takacs "There isn’t another country in the world where snakes and humans get so close as in Vietnam" and he and Environmental Anthropologist and Cave Diver Kenny Broad are out to prove it. Venturing through the seas off Song Doc in search of sea snakes, in the markets and the back alleys of Le Mat Village in Hanoi for kraits and cobras, and in the jungles for the elusive and endangered king cobra, Kenny and Zoltan put themselves at risk hunting these snakes in the name of science and adventure. To add to the challenge, they must do all this while being followed by famed photographer Mattias Klum and the National Geographic Magazine crew who must meet their assignment goals and deadlines while avoiding any mortal bites. Can they accomplish their goals and get in some cave diving for Kenny, or will that end up being the most dangerous challenge of all? From finding Venom Viagra and an elusive king cobra in the jungle, to Mattias’ close encounter with a cobra’s bite, to sharing a life-threatening experience in an underwater cave, Kenny and Zoltan show how science can be an adventure.
