This is ringside access to bug-eat-bug gladiatorial contests! 

Witness some of nature’s deadliest encounters where stings, spikes and deadly venom are wielded with cold-blooded precision. Enter the no-holds-barred, real life world of spiders, scorpions, centipedes and killer ants fighting to the death. Can the lethal stinger of a Bull Ant overcome the suffocating silk of the Redback Spider? Filmed in extreme close-up high definition and illustrated with state-of-the-art CGI, Monster Bug Wars! brings to life nature’s ultimate fight club. The five encounters per episode are accompanied with expert commentary from Dr Linda Rayor, Cornell University’s eminent entomologist and Dr Bryan Grieg Fry, “Professor Poison” from The University of Queensland. An accompanying special recaps the Top Ten Bug Battles.
