Animal Weapons: Toxins and Venom (Animal Nature Documentary)
Posted on: 01/07/2013
Description: Animal Weapons is a show which takes us once again into the animal kingdom to find out what techniques and wonders of evolution animals use to hunt and kill prey in order to survive in our world's diverse environments. The first episode deals with chemicals, i.e. venoms and toxins that many of Australia's animals have developed in order to paralyze or kill right away. In an environment where food is hard to come by, these animals found a way to quickly dispose of their prey before it can escape. Especially snakes are known for their deadly cocktails which can even kill human beings in one bite. But also scorpions, lizards and even some creatures of the sea employ chemical warfare in order to obtain sustenance for every day survival.
