MONSTER BUG WARS

--MONSTER BUG WARS premieres on SCIENCE Tuesday, February 14, at 10PM ET/PT--

The battle between the world’s most extreme insects continues in season two of MONSTER BUG WARS. The small, deadly predators crawl to SCIENCE for another round of fight-to-the-death battles in which only the fittest survive. The new season features insect experts Dr. Linda Rayor and Dr. Bryan Grieg Fry offering commentary on the mating, hunting and survival mode of each fearsome fighter. MONSTER BUG WARS allows viewers to witness epic encounters between these vicious assassins where the only fiercest creature survives.  It’s a jungle out there and one law reigns – eat or be eaten. The next episode of MONSTER BUG WARS premieres Tuesday, February 14, at 10PM ET/PT.

 

Episode Description:

 

In the fourth episode, MOTHERS OF ALL WARS, mother Scorpion loses one of her two-week-old babies in a skirmish in episode four. Then, a mother-to-be Rufus Comb-footed Spider guards her eggs, and her life, against a withering attack from a Spitting Spider. The queens of camouflage: a lightning-fast Lichen Mantis and a speedy Rock Spider duel to the death on a tree trunk.  A Candy Cane Katydid and her close relative, a Bug Eyed Katydid, clash head on.  In the final battle of the episode one life is lost as a Silverback Cross Spider and a Tiger Assassin Bug cross swords.
