Speed Kills

They can accelerate faster than a Ferrari, strike with 10 times the g-force of a space shuttle, and outmaneuver a fighter jet. These are the fastest animals on Earth, and they use their speed to lethal effect in some of the planet's most combative environments. Take a journey across deserts, dense jungles, and murky lagoons, and see how predators and prey run, swim, and fly for their lives. We capture every movement in high definition, at 1,000 frames-per-second, so you won't miss one graphic detail of this fast-paced and often violent world.
