For the world’s fiercest predators, winning is second nature. But what would happen if they forgot their prey and battled one another, instead? Featuring dozens of the world’s greatest hunters, Fierce Fighters: Predators showcases the most epic battles imaginable between the champions of the land, sea, and sky.
Grizzly versus mountain lion. Electric eel versus piranha. Orca versus great white shark. Komodo dragon versus tiger. Python versus king cobra. These aren’t just head-to-head match-ups—they are tooth-to-tooth and claw-to-claw. Deadly venom against powerful jaws. Speed and agility against brute force. Brainy mammals against cold-blooded reptiles with a survival instinct millions of years in the making. Weigh the skills of the contestants and try to guess who will emerge victorious, then check and see if the experts agree. In these dozens of earth-wide battles, can you predict the most ferocious fighters of all?
