72 Dangerous Animals: Australia

12 x 60 Factual Series


You’re in crystal clear waters, scuba diving, with fish all colours of the rainbow surrounding you. One small, beautiful shell grabs your attention, you pick it up, there’s a tiny pinch… and congratulations, you have been stung by a cone shell, one of Australia’s lesser-known nasties and, unless you get help, in one hour you’re dead!

Welcome to 72 Dangerous Animals Australia. This is an unforgettable journey of horror and fascination.  This enthralling series looks at all 72 of Australia’s deadly animals, from the Platypus to the Great White Shark.

With explanatory graphics, animation, eye witness accounts, experts’ opinions and real life victims, each animal is fully investigated to determine just how dangerous and life threatening it is.

Each creature competes for the title of most dangerous Australian animal and once it’s been profiled is given a scoreboard ranking. The ranking is adjusted after each animal is slotted into order.

The countdown is covered using scoreboards, stadium graphics and exciting sports-style voice over.

72 Dangerous Animals Australia combines real life stories, beautifully filmed footage, and a host of characters who work and live with these unique Australian animals. From the desert to the snow, it brings us face-to-face with our deepest fears and the creatures that we hope to never meet.
