DESCRIPTION: (from Animal Planet's press release, April 2014) Animal Planet's large predator expert Dave Salmoni is no stranger to adventure. Having trekked the globe to study predators and their unique environments, Salmoni combines his hands-on experiences in his new landmark series, DEADLY ISLANDS. Salmoni visits some of the world's most remote islands to investigate how and why their native inhabitants have been so spectacularly successful at surviving - despite the harshest of conditions. In a unique approach that blends all the splendor of a natural history documentary series with an investigative twist, DEADLY ISLANDS follows Salmoni in the role of detective as he sets out to crack some of the last big secrets of these forgotten places. Salmoni's skills are tested to the limits as he lives alongside some of Mother Nature's fiercest predators to solve the mysteries of these DEADLY ISLANDS.
