Are there really animals as huge as dragons, creatures longer than the total height of nine men, enormous beasts so elusive that they have never been photographed, or birds that are so fierce that they are labeled as man-killing beasts? This February, join adventurer and biologist Niall McCann, as he heads out on one of Animal Planet’s most exciting global adventures; to track down the BIGGEST AND BADDEST creatures on the planet. From the killer Cassowaries of Australia, to the largest wild hogs in Texas and Florida, from legendary Anacondas in exotic Guyana, to the hugest Asian elephants in Nepal and much more, Niall goes to the extremes on this ultimate quest to seek out these fantastic animals in the far corners of the earth. The hunt for the BIGGEST AND BADDESTwill be every night at 9 pm from 1st to 14th February. 

In this fantastic series, BIGGEST AND BADDEST, Niall goes all out and goes where few would set foot to get as physically close as possible to the world’s hugest and most fearsome creatures. From forging streams, to climbing mountains and trees, to canoeing through treacherous rapids, and even travelling on an elephant’s back, join Niall on his gripping escapades to pursue and uncover the globe’s most amazing creatures in their individual environments. On BIGGEST AND BADDEST, witness as Niall wrestles with Anacondas to measure them, tracks through dangerous snake-infested jungles and faces a potential thunderous onslaught of enraged wild elephants while attempting to unravel the truth of the existence of the bewildering Raja Gaj, takes deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) samples of giant wild hogs, assists with the re-location of ferocious crocodiles, and much more.

On BIGGEST AND BADDEST, Niall also works closely with locals, attack victims, big game hunters and experts who have spotted these creatures, seeking out famous legends and investigating animal attacks to bring viewers an even more intimate understanding of these misunderstood beings. Just what makes Tigers tick? Are the Cassowaries as nasty as reports claim? Could the massive water snake reported by villagers throughout the Amazon be more than a legend, a prehistoric holdover, or an entirely different sub-species of Anaconda? You may have heard of some of these marvelous animals and seen their photos on the Internet, but which of it is true?
