Speed Kills Full Episode Guide

  • Enter the rainforest's impenetrable understory, a damp world of shadows where the sun never shines and weird predators like velvet worms, big brown bats, and orange baboon tarantulas strike at lightning speeds.

  • What is lurking in this black lagoon? Featured: sharp-shooting archerfish, African fish eagles, mantis shrimp, and other killers at work.

  • The world's jungles host some of the fastest animals on the planet. Vipers literally strike at lightning speed, spiders leap toward their prey at distances 70 times their body length and, with the flick of their tongue, chameleons snatch their targets at speeds of 900 MPH. This is one high-speed trek you don't want to miss.

  • Life happens at alarming speeds in what seems like the slow moving ocean. Marlins chase their prey at 75 MPH, stonefish strike at amazing speeds and mantis shrimp throw the fastest punch in the animal kingdom. Even caped gannets take dangerous dives, hitting the water at bone crunching velocity, just to grab a quick bite. Smithsonian Channel reveals the science behind the speed and takes viewers on a breathtaking journey under the sea.

  • The perfect playing ground for speed is in the open plains of the Serengeti, it's also the fastest animals home. They are all predators and prey and need to be fast in order to survive. Enter the African grassland, and discover how cheetahs, hyenas, hawks, crocodiles and other assassins of the Savannah kill with lightening fast speed.
