World's Deadliest Collection is an episodic television series which appeared on the National Geographic channel in 2006. This show explored some of the most dangerous and deadly creatures on the planet, examining their habits, habitats, and the hazards they pose to humans. Each episode of World's Deadliest Collection focused on a particular group of animals or environment, such as tropical rainforests, deserts, or the open ocean.

The show is hosted by animal expert and adventurer Nigel Marven, who travels the world to meet these deadly creatures up close. Marven is no stranger to dangerous animals, having worked on numerous other nature programs, including Walking with Dinosaurs and Prehistoric Park. He is an engaging and knowledgeable host, who brings a contagious enthusiasm to his exploration of the natural world.

The series is divided into six episodes, each of which explores a different aspect of deadly animals. The first episode, "Killer Venom," delves into the world of venomous creatures such as snakes, spiders, and scorpions. Marven examines the physiology and behavior of these animals, noting how they use their venom to consume prey and defend themselves against predators.

The second episode, "Hunter and Hunted," takes a closer look at the strategies and tactics predators use to catch and kill their prey. Marven travels to Africa to observe lions, hyenas, and wild dogs in action, and also examines the ambush tactics of snakes, crocodiles, and spiders.

Episode three, "Deadly Habitats," explores some of the world's most inhospitable environments, such as deserts, rainforests, and the Arctic tundra. Marven highlights the adaptations that animals have developed to survive in these harsh conditions, and the dangers that humans face when trying to explore or inhabit these areas.

In the fourth episode, "Killer Instincts," Marven examines the predatory instincts of animals, looking at how they have evolved to hunt and kill their prey. He observes jaguars in the Amazon rainforest, sharks in the open ocean, and Komodo dragons on the Indonesian island of Komodo.

The penultimate episode, "Survival Tactics," focuses on the ways that animals have adapted to survive in the face of danger and competition. Marven explores the world of camouflage, mimicry, and other defensive techniques that animals use to avoid being eaten or attacked.

The final episode of World's Deadliest Collection, "Deadly Encounters," examines the relationship between humans and deadly animals. Marven travels to India to observe the way that people coexist with wild tigers, and also looks at the ways that humans can inadvertently bring themselves into conflict with dangerous creatures, such as sharks, bears, and snakes.

Throughout the series, Marven provides a wealth of information about each species of animal he encounters, using footage of the animals in their natural habitat, as well as expert testimony from biologists and other animal experts.
