This fun and informative British series offers viewers of all ages a chance to learn more about different species of animals and their habitats from around the world. But despite the series' title, most of what's offered here is designed to eliminate the "nightmarish" qualities assigned to animals like wolves, snakes, and sharks, as well as to specific locations, by explaining the reasons for the way they look and the way they behave. It also highlights species that seem completely harmless but that pose a dangerous threat to animals and humans alike.

A few scenes feature predatory hunts, and some discussions of the injuries that animals can cause. But the series is more committed to educating folks about the natural world in a way that is nonthreatening. Meanwhile, Wilkinson's energetic style and willingness to admit when she's afraid make it an engaging viewing experience for children. From Yellowstone National Park in the United States to the jungles of the Asian island of Borneo, Deadly Nightmares of Nature allows viewers to experience what nature has to offer one geographic location at a time.
