[via press release from FOX]

FOX AND NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC JOIN FORCES FOR A WALK ON THE WILD SIDE

Experience the World Through the Eyes of Animals On NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC PRESENTS: CRITTERCAM Monday, July 31 And Go Inside Deadly Animal Packs On SWARMS 2 Airing Monday, August 7, on FOX

Ever wonder what it would be like to be eaten out of house and home by a swarm of ravenous rodents? How about riding along with a predator as it's on the hunt and makes the kill? FOX and National Geographic take you on two wild summer trips you'll never forget! First, through an exciting new technology, see the world through the eyes of the animal kingdom on NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC PRESENTS: CRITTERCAM Monday, July 31 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. The following week, find out what happens when animals multiply out of control on SWARMS 2 Monday, Aug. 7 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC PRESENTS: CRITTERCAM, an all-new, one-hour special from National Geographic, takes viewers on a thrilling, never-before-seen journey into the private lives of animal predators. A high-tech research tool � the "crittercam" � is attached to an animal and records life from the critter's point of view. Dive into the frozen waters off Alaska and join giant humpback whales as they search for prey, venture into the thick brush with a grizzly bear and join a lioness as she stalks and kills a zebra for dinner.

The crittercam isn't used solely in the wild. This original special uses the technology to reveal the secret life of a housecat, and to unmask the predators who share our homes. Could your loving pet by day be a killer by night? Go deep inside the lives of animals with NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC PRESENTS: CRITTERCAM.

From mounds of slithering serpents to hordes of insatiable locusts, from deadly packs of Japanese giant hornets to sneaky cockroaches that hide in walls undetected for years, swarms are everywhere. The shocking one-hour special SWARMS 2 takes viewers on a guided tour of the world of "swarms" � a world where dangerous packs of animals can form on land, in the sea and in the air.

From fire ants that work together to attack much larger creatures, to jellyfish that fill literally miles and miles of ocean, to black crows whose droppings cover entire cars, FOX and National Geographic explore the frightening phenomenon of swarms with unbelievable footage from around the world.

NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC PRESENTS: CRITTERCAM is a National Geographic Television & Film production. Greg Marshall and Kenan Smart serve as executive producers, and Chris Sondreal serves as supervising producer.

SWARMS 2 is a National Geographic Television & Film production. For National Geographic Channel, Michael Cascio serves as the Senior Vice President of Production, and John B. Ford serves as the Executive in Charge of Production. Kevin Bachar and Jamie Bernanke from Pangolin Pictures produce.
