Crazy Monster Full Episode Guide

  • Deep beneath the sea, bizarre and remarkable creatures lurk, featuring a collection of extreme adaptations developed over 500 million years of evolution.

  • Bugs outnumber humans 200 million to one, making them the biggest family of animals on Earth. And we've gathered the most peculiar of them all, each with remarkable adaptations that help them survive and thrive in the wild. Take an up-close look at these strange beasts as we scour the planet's forests, deserts, and swamps to reveal a tiny sand monster that turns its victims into soup, a beetle that shoots molten hot liquid, a massive wasp that kills about 40 people a year, and more.

  • Witness the planet's most teeth-chattering fang-bearing creatures. See how millions of years of evolution have produced a variety of weird and wonderful canine contraptions used to do much more than simply chew. We'll span the globe and showcase beasts with choppers that can crush bone, dagger-like tusks that can fight off the competition, a beak that can snap off your finger, and the monster fangs that rule them all: two-inch-long hypodermic needles that carry a lethal dose of poison.

  • Step right up and witness a collection of real bigmouths, a gathering of strange creatures with a real appetite for destruction. Join us as we look to the skies, seas, and land to present weird and wonderful animals that prefer to swallow their food whole. From beasts that use their mouths as traps to botanical death pits to one giant with a mouth so large it can kill millions in one bite, you better keep your eye on this group of gulping creatures before they swallow you whole.

  • They live all around the world -- and underground. They are crazy monster diggers, strange burrowers of all shapes and sizes, who have been crawling, puncturing, and biting their way through the earth for millions of years.

  • Meet a family of hairy, scary eight-legged beasts of all shapes and sizes. This bizarre creature showcase is as fascinating as it is frightening, featuring spiders that walk on water, cartwheel across deserts, shoot hairs at predators, and deliver venom about 15 times deadlier than a rattlesnake's. Join us as we comb the planet's jungles, deserts, treetops, and ponds to bring you the biggest, ugliest, deadliest spiders alive.
