Dominic Monaghan explores some of the most remote corners of far-flung countries across the globe as he searches for the largest, weirdest and most intense creatures alive. Dominic is best known for his role in the movie adaptations of Lord of the Rings and as Charlie Pace in Lost. A true nature lover, Monaghan’s knowledge and love for insects and reptiles developed during his childhood and remains to this day.
In this second season of Wild Things, Dom expands his quests to include bigger and badder creatures – giant spitting cobras, charging elephants, a creature with the longest fangs in the world and another that just might be the most venomous animal in the ocean are just a few of the creatures on Dom’s roster this time around.
Dom has to cover some of the most challenging – and remote – terrain on the planet. He’ll have to search on land, by riverboat and even underwater to find the animals he seeks. He’ll drive, dive, hike, sail – and even surf – some of the most spectacular places on the planet. He’ll work in temperatures that swing from the scorching hot jungles of the Amazon, to the cold and snowy mountains of Japan.
Along the way, he’ll meet the people who live and work to conserve and protect the world’s most rare and wonderful creatures.
