Across the planet there are animal giants, creatures that have pushed size to the limits.  From five-ton elephant seals, to feasting Grizzly Bears and mighty African lions, they have evolved to be massive for many surprising reasons.  

 

In this series, biologist Patrick Aryee is on a global mission to find the biggest beasts on Earth and discover why size really matters.  Combining stunning blue chip natural history photography, with nail biting close encounters, this series tells the definitive story of gigantism in the natural world. As well as getting eye-to-eye with present day behemoths, illustrated graphics will bring to life Big Beasts of the past – like the legendary Titanboa , a giant snake as long as a double-decker bus.

 

In each episode Patrick is on a simple journey to find giants on different continents: AUSTRALIA and ASIA / AMERICAS / AFRICA
