Monster Bug Wars! (Monster Bug Wars!)
"Monster Bug Wars" takes you ringside to witness some of nature's deadliest encounters-where losers aren't just KO'd, they're eaten alive. This is the no-holds-barred, real-life world of Spiders, Scorpions, Centipedes and Killer Ants who fight to the death. It's a six-episode bug-eat-bug gladiatorial contest where stings, spikes and deadly venom are wielded with cold-blooded precision. Filmed in super close-up high definition and illustrated with state-of-the-art CGI, Monster Bug Wars brings to life nature's ultimate fight club-five encounters per episode-with expert commentary from Cornell University's eminent entomologist, Dr Linda Rayor, and "Professor Poison", Dr Bryan Grieg Fry from The University of Queensland.

Monster Bug Wars (Death At Midnight)
When Rainforest Monsters like the Spiny Leaf Insect and Giant Rainforest Mantis go head-to-head, it's an all-out assult where only one survives. Can the lethal stinger of a Bull Ant overcome the suffocating silk of the Redback Spifder? Will the amazing speed of the Water Strider triumph over the stealth and cunning of a Water Spider? Can a black House Spider outpoint it's arch-rival, the White-Tailed Spider? And will a cranky, ancient warrior of the spider world - the Sydney Funnelweb prevail over it's highly evolved nemesis, the Garden Wolf Spider? When bugs go to war there's just one guarantee - you're either dead or alive.

Monster Bug Wars (Enemy Empire)
When a lethal Tree Scorpion threatens a Green Ant colony, carnage is guaranteed. But will one prevail over many? And who wins when a delicate Cellar Spider takes on Spiderworld's thousand-pound gorilla, the White Tailed Spider? With the fastest jaws in the business, a tussle between the Trap Jaw Ant and the bizarre, burrowing Ant Lion should be no contest at all. But is it? A neighborhood dispute between the Brown House Spider and one of the bug world's deadliest, the Redback Spider turns ugly. And who survives a showdown between a deadly Desert Centipede and a Desert Trapdoor Spider?"

Monster Bug Wars (Quick and the Deadly )
When the speedy House Centipede meets a brave and cunning Swift Tree Mantid, a "˜Snatch and Bite' showdown is assured. And who'll be left standing when the Whistling Tarantula encounters a fierce Bulldog Raspy Cricket? The Ogre-Faced Spider hunts with a tricky silk "˜fishing net' and it's now scheming to use it to catch a stealthy Assassin Bug. Will it succeed? When the venom-packed Marbled Scorpion meets the pumped-up Trap-Jaw Ant, it's sting versus sting and deadly claws against super-fast jaws. And who will survive when the strangely armed Spitting Spider comes face-to-face with the sharp-eyed Metallic-Green Jumping Spider?

Monster Bug Wars (Shape-Shifters )
When a cunning Tent Spider come to blows with a vicious Destructive Katydid, it's a battle between sticky silk, spiked legs and snapping jaws. And who'll be victorious when a huge Giant Banded Huntsman takes on the lean and mean Jungle Huntsman? The Rhinoceros Beetle has huge horns and heavy armor, but can it outwit a swarm of pesky Meat Ants with tiny jaws? When a Green Jumping Spider and a Long-Jawed Jumping Spider cross paths in the rainforest, one of these expert athletes will go down. And who will survive when the bold Grey Tree Runner Mantis encounters the stealthy Lichen Huntsman?

Monster Bug Wars (When Tribes Go To War)
When a combat-ready Badge Huntsman Spider encounters a deadly Spider Hunting Scorpion, it's a confrontation between two lethal injection systems on legs. And who'll survive when a rogue venomwielding Tree Centipede takes on a kick boxing Balloon-Winged Katydid with hard-hitting spiny limbs? The Freshwater Crab has heavy armor and heavy-duty claws, but can it defeat a slimy Tiger Leech with twin suckers and razor-sharp teeth? When a Portia Spider and a Long-Jawed Orb Weaver meet on a silk high-wire, someone will be played like a fiddle. And can a bustling colony of Green Ants outgun an angry swarm of Paper Wasps?

Comments about this product:

This was and excellent series on television but I'm very disappointed that the DVD is listed as being in a 1.33:1 aspect ratio.

I originally saw it in widescreen format and thought that it was one of the best science documentaries that I've seen. I'll wait until it's in widescreen format or just take a pass on it and other full-screen DVDs here.

    Comments about this product:

    I used this to show/teach my biology classes about adaptations in insects. I thought it was great! They absolutely loved it, and were TOTALLY engaged the entire time! Not always easy to do with freshmen and sophomores. I did think it was a little heavy on the spiders.

          I can't rate this DVD since it will be a Christmas Gift for my boyfriend. He made it very clear that this is what he wanted. He says he loves this show. Personally, I can't deal with bugs of any kind.
