Catch Into the Dragon's Lair Tonight on Animal Planet


I watched this last night, and I have to say: It's a must-see!

(press release)

The Nile crocodile is one of the planet's most feared apex predators known to have taken humans as prey. Filming within arms reach of these dangerous creatures, is courageous and perhaps a bit insane, but with the risk comes valuable knowledge and an adrenaline rush that can make a person feel truly alive. There has been no record of men ever diving with these beautiful and yet utterly terrifying creatures… until now. On Thursday, December 9, at 10 PM (ET/PT) on Animal Planet, wildlife photographer Roger Horrocks and world-renowned, underwater cameraman Didier Noiret travel to Botswana’s Okavango Delta to go Into the Dragon's Lair.

For Roger (pictured left), diving with Nile crocodiles is a drastic departure from his former life in the corporate world. Both Roger and Didier are fully aware could die, but they are determined to achieve their goal - to be the first men on record to enter the Nile crocodile’s lair to capture never-before-seen behaviors and imagery that broadens the world's scientific understanding of one of its most horrifyingly, glorious killers.
