MUMBAI: Explorer Steve Backshall returns on his mission to find the world’s deadliest animals. In the new series DEADLY 60 ON A MISSION, Steve and his trusty crew go in search of the biggest, fastest, most venomous animals in his deadliest series ever. From lethal beauties to killer beasts, his journey takes him to some of the most hostile and remote places on Earth in order to determine the deadliest top 60.



Starting April 1st, every night at 9 pm on Animal Planet, DEADLY 60 ON A MISSION is a highly concentrated dose of incredible adventure, high adrenaline and utterly hair raising encounters that are unbeatably deadly.



Filmed on location around the world from Sri Lanka to Nepal,Peru to Australia, the team hits the ground running – and they’re bringing the viewers along for the ride.Swimming unprotected with wild alligators, paragliding alongside an Egyptian vulture, being lowered by helicopter into a crocodile nest in Australia, a close encounter with the most venomous snake on earth; this is a record breaking series with the planet’s top predators.



Each episodeof DEADLY 60 ON A MISSIONsees animals deadly enough to warrant a treasured place on Steve’s list.However, the search is never straight forward as the crew does whatever it takes to get the ultimate close encounter, facing some of the harshest territories known to man…or beast. From diving in the fresh water swamps of Florida on the hunt for Alligators to exploringthe remote island of Komodo on a quest for the Komodo Dragon – the world’s largest lizard, capableof killing a buffalo – the series makes viewers feel asthough they’re at the heart of the action, and part of thegang.



Each animal is assigned three killer facts andrated on the Deadly 60 scale as viewers are immersedin the quest for the world’s most lethal predators. Inaddition, the specials allow viewers to see behindthe scenes and find out just what it takes to be part ofthe Deadly 60 team as they’re on the hunt in the world’swildest places.



Some of the highlights of the series are:

In South Africa, the crew looks for one of the most iconic deadly animals - the ferocious great white shark.On this mission Steve also goes in search of the fastest animal on land, uses some of the latest camera technology on a trio of Africa's deadliest snakes before being charmed by the astonishing snake stomping secretary bird.



Steve Backshall and his crew travel to Australia and New Zealand in search of more lethal predators. Steve has his most dramatic encounter ever as he dangles beneath a helicopter and is dropped onto the nest of a wild saltwater crocodile. Steve heads out in search of the largest toothed predator on the planet - the mighty sperm whale.



On a mission to track down some of the largest deadly animals Asia has to offer, Steve and his crew are chased by a group of ravenous, three metre long Komodo dragons, the world’s largest venomous lizard! Steve then heads to Nepal in search of more deadly giants. He enlists the help of an elephant to track down a very grumpy rhinoceros and stalks the forests in search of the largest cat on earth, the highly elusive and endangered Bengal tiger. He also has a chance encounter with a nest of giant honeybees before taking to skies to paraglide with an Egyptian vulture above the foothills of the Himalayas.



Join Steve Backshall as he continues his search for the planet's deadliest predators with a visit to Florida in the USA. He dives into the crystal clear waters of the Silver Springs river to swim with a wild alligator before wading into a swamp to try and catch a slippery amphibian, the weird and wonderful amphiuma. Steve then heads to the drier pine woodlands on the trail of America's largest serpent, the eastern diamondback rattlesnake.
