BBC Home Video have announced they’ll release two collection of the nature series Wild Things With Dominic Monaghan on September 17.
“As a child, he worked alongside his father — a teacher and biologist — and learned the proper way to handle, care for and appreciate the creatures of the wild. Never losing his love for insects and reptiles, Dominic owns a small forest in India, and has worked with the animal rights group PETA. He’d often be found bug hunting while on location in Hawaii while filming Lost, and his California home is purposely ‘infested’ with a growing menagerie of rare beasts including two giant spiders, a darkling beetle, a Scolopendra, a gecko, and dozens of mammoth hawk moths. Dominic hopes to dispel the myths we have about these creepy crawly creatures, and shed new light on their importance to earth’s ecosystem.”
On the disc Wild Things With Dominic Monaghan: Creepy Crawlers, Monaghan goes bug hunting in Laos, Venezuela, and Cameroon, during which he meets a spider as big as a plate, a bat-eating centipede, and one of the biggest insects on Earth, the White Goliath beetle.
This disc is currently available for preodering from Amazon for $11.99.
Also available is Wild Things With Dominic Monaghan: Deadliest Critters, which has him looking for the endangered Guatemalan beaded lizard, some hairy and thick-tailed scorpions in Namibia, flesh-eating army ants in the Ecuadorian rainforest, and a giant water bug in Vietnam’s Mekong Delta.
Like Creepy Crawlers, Deadliest Critters is currently available for preodering from Amazon for $11.99.
