In the desert, nothing is as it seems. In the dark of night, killers conceal themselves in plain sight. In the endless sea of sand, death comes from every direction. The Arabian Desert is a land of sand, rocks and violent extremes. During the day temperatures can reach a blistering 130 degrees. Few animals can survive for long, exposed in the open.
In the land of jungles and caves, night brings out horrors beyond imagination. The jungles of Indonesia are a world of beauty and mystery. As night approaches, the jungle’s inhabitants get on edge, because strange creatures emerge in the dark and as darkness falls, the cries of two million winged predators pierce the jungle sky.

In the swamps of North America, predators lurk in the murky shallows, the barren cypress forests and the muddy ﬂats.

The Costa Rican jungle plays host to a twisted game of survival as the sun goes down. Legions of strange predators pit their weapons against the death-defying defenses of their prey.

The forests of India play host to nightly battle of life or death before dawn.
