Ultimate Cat
Equipped with three-inch long canines and retractable claws like switchblades, big cats are among the fiercest and most fascinating beasts on the planet—capable of taking down fleet footed antelope or two ton elephants. National Geographic crawls through African grasslands and swamps of India to track and reveal the ultimate engineering and ambush tactics of lions, tigers, and leopards.

Super Snake
Up to 30 feet long, today's giant snakes are as big as they've ever been and their appetites may have never been bigger. Over 100 teeth, 300 vertebrae, 600 ribs, and 10,000 muscles work together to form nature's most elegant predator. Now, National Geographic debunks the myths and reveals the startling truths of the Super Snake.

Ultimate Viper
Vipers have been evolving their way toward the top of the reptile heap for millions of years. Armed with an amazing arsenal of deadly tools, vipers have proven to be remarkably successful predators. Sharpened by millennia of natural selection, vipers have used these traits to penetrate almost every continent on the globe. But in an ever-changing world where skills new and old are constantly put to test, how will these reptiles find new evolutionary paths in which to continue to advance?

Ultimate Crocodile
The giant saltwater crocodile, the "saltie," is perhaps the most successful predator the world has ever seen. It has survived unchanged for 100 million years. National Geographic uncovers the secrets of this ultimate predator, which has the most powerful jaws since T-rex, the most complex heart in the animal kingdom and a brain with unexpected intelligence. Examine the remarkable features of the croc—from its finely tuned pressure sensors used to detect prey to its lethal predation techniques; from its remarkable pulverizing stomach to its powerful immune system.

The Whale That Ate Jaws
Off the coast of San Francisco, an unexpected killing challenged the great white shark's supremacy as the ultimate predator when one became prey to a killer whale. Whale-watchers witnessed a stunning act of nature as a killer whale rose to the water's surface with a great white in its mouth and held it there for 15 minutes. Even more amazing, biologist Peter Pyle was nearby and able to get underwater footage of two whales feeding on the shark. They ate the liver and then departed the scene, leaving the rest to the birds. The incident raised questions, such as how did the killer whale take the huge shark without a struggle? And why did the whales only eat the shark's liver?

Monster Shark
Megalodon was the biggest predator ever to swim the oceans. And for 20 million years, this ferocious 50-ton shark with a 9-foot jaw and 7-inch serrated teeth terrorized the creatures of the seas. Now, nearly 2 million years after its extinction, a team of scientists is combining research on today's great white with the only Megalodon fossils ever found to unlock the mysteries of this apex predator.
