Deadly animals drive BBC Earth to walk on the wild side

Bringing the best of natural history filmmaking to a large audience has never been easy. But what happens when you get the taste for something a little darker? Something a little more sinister, a little harder to find, something that’s intentionally keeping itself far from your reach.

This month  BBC Earth is hunting down all that is Deadly! Gathering together the incredible knowledge of the BBC Earth natural history teams, with the most interesting and thrilling nature photography and film from the BBC. July on Life Is is set to be a truly captivating month!

Deadly fact: The Panther Chameleon has a wicked tongue, coated with mucus and tipped with a vacuum, absolutely perfect for picking up prey!

Take your own journey through the deadliest animals, plants and people on our planet.

The BBC Earth blog will be taking the road less traveled in bringing you exclusive insights from behind the lens with none other than Steve Backshall, the Deadly 60 presenter and naturalist who reaches parts of the world others just wouldn't dare to visit! Their journey into the dangerous side of the natural world will also be traveling far and wide, uncovering where are the most dangerous places on the planet and the stories of the people brave enough to live there.

On our YouTube, BBC Earth will be dedicating a play-list especially to Steve who has made his pain - while the filming of the Deadly 60 series (now airing on Nat Geo Wild on Mondays from 10pm).

So join the hunt with BBC Earth! Dance with sharks, meet some lethal giants and discover oddities you cannot help but share...even with the most squeamish of your friends.
