Animal Face-Off is a predator lover's dream. The show uses computer generated images to create epic battles among the top predators nature has to offer. Like gladiators in a ring, animals fight to the bitter end using every tool and weapon to gain the upper hand. Animal experts consider the strengths and weaknesses of each species and compare them to the strengths and weakness of the rival species. Animal weaponry like teeth and claws garner high marks. Solo hunters that rely on individual cunning, stealth and ability often receive higher marks than predators that rely on group participation. Experts also consider speed, agility, raw power and aggression. Many of the combatants will hardly come face to face in true combat scenarios as they often live in completely different geographical locations. For predators occupying the same territory, conflict is generally over food and is usually defined by small skirmishes that end with one group chasing the other group away from the kill. However, after all data has been calculated scientists and animals experts build robotic prototypes designed to inflict much of the damage of the real predator. Studio tests are run. Scenarios are created, and results are studied as the robotic killer unleashes his wrath on an unsuspecting object. As the show culminates in the big, computer generated show down; graphic artists create the perfect scenario. Appropriate music plays as the two predators stalk each other over various terrain. The scenario captures the strengths of each animal as it attempts to gain the upper hand over its opponent. Fights usually last a couple of minutes until the superior predator unleashes his ultimate weapon killing his opponent. No doubt results can and will be debated by enthusiasts who support their favorite animal. Regardless of opinion, Animal Face-Off shows the importance of predators to ensure the balance of nature. Stealth, cunning and coordinated hunting techniques prove these animals to be more than mindless killers looking for their next meal, but when they face-off it is nothing less than extraordinary.
