National Geographic's Secret Life of Predators is a four-part event that takes viewers to the depths of the ocean, the high forests, the vast open lands, and the edges of the earth to see the world through the eyes of predators in some of the planet's most unforgiving places. From scorpions in Southeast Asia to sailfish off the coast of Mexico, nature's hunters must constantly adapt to keep their place in the food chain.
Every predator has a secret—join National Geographic as we unveil their covert missions in this ground-breaking series about how killers survive with the odds stacked against them. Tune in to the simulcast on both National Geographic Channel and Nat Geo WILD on Friday, September 20th, at 8 PM ET/PT and Friday, September 27, at 9 PM ET/PT during the "Night of Exploration."
