Bad@$$ Animals

Bad@$$ Animals reveals animal underdogs with surprisingly ninja skills. These critters have attitude and will have a go at whoever gets in their way. From cute little Fulmar chicks who spew orange vomit on any intruder, to the mantis shrimp with a punch that can shatter glass and the most advanced eyes in the world, these creatures are unassuming things that mind their own business… until they’re provoked.

Some Bad@$$ Animals like the honey badger have claws and teeth, but they all have something else – a bad attitude – these guys are not the majestic lion or the killer great white – they’re the honey badger who’ll try and bite the lion where it hurts, and the 5 inch long Geographers Cone Snail who could kill a great white if it could get its venom into it.

Bad@$$ Animals will surprise you with just how lethal they can be. The animal world knows to leave them alone, but because they’re pretty unassuming, the human world often passes them by. Beavers can destroy your home if you’re down river of a dam burst, dino bird the cassowary will disembowel you with its dagger like claw if you get too close, and the cute looking giant otter will take out just about anything – including a 6-foot caiman. You do not want to mess with Bad@$$ Animals.

Tune in to Bad@$$ Animals, tonight at 9P on Nat Geo WILD.

    Staff: You are presenting information regarding animals which is not normally considered necessary by mainstream books and media. However, it may be very important. There was no information given regarding treating sick animals (Koala).
    I did not see TV Rating. Likely TV 14. What Logical Reason Could You Have for Naming/Including/Titleing the Program and Many things in it as Bad-@$$, repeated verbally by women and men throughout the program??? I like Biology and Science and Knowledge. But I despise the useless use of Swear Words, in this case, Nasty Words. Why? You thought it awful that the young ate the diarrhea of the mother. Well, the word you are proud to use is the location of emission of feces! (oh, thankfully, s word is not used yet in most programs!) Can’t you all think of descriptive adjectives, adverbs? Or, perhaps you also don’t want youth under 14 to learn facts of life? Why at 14, the most vulnerable of youth age?

    I agree with Sheri’s blog, there’s absolutely no need for foul language in the public arena. There are plenty of descriptive word that can be used.

    My family loves this channel, but the filthy language is a disgrace. We won’t be watching at my house until they clean it up. I thought national geographic was a nice family channel, but not anymore. very disappointed.
