When a leaf look-alike Horned Katydid tackles a plant eating Owl Butterfly Caterpillar, who will survive to tell the tale?

In a shootout with a Black Tailed Scorpion, the Red-Thighed Wandering Spider's legendary venom is put to the test. The final match features, an aggressive Orb Weaver goes head to head with a destructive Longicorn Beetle.

Episode Two: Blood on the Forest Floor Premieres Tuesday, January 31 10PM ET/PT Two of the rainforest's fiercest opponents, a venomous Brazilian Wandering Spider and a vicious Hooded Mantis go head to head in the second episode. A Rainforest Land Crab pits its massive weapons against the might of an Army Ant swarm. A Velvet Worm and a Harvestman discharge their chemical weapons at point blank range. In a fierce battle, two dark forces of the rainforest, a Black Jungle Stalker and a Black Faced Katydid, fight to the death. Finally, in a fight where only one combatant emerges alive, a jungle Frankenstein, the Amblypygid, steps into the ring with the Red Forest Scorpion.

Episode Three: Ultra Violence Premieres Tuesday, February 7 10PM ET/PT In the third episode, there is all-out ultra-violence in the Costa Rican jungles as Mega Bugs go head to head. A hooded Giant Cockroach takes on a monstrous female Red-rump Tarantula. Then a valiant Vinegarroon becomes the target of a ruthless Stripe-tailed Centipede. The deadly showdowns continue as the Orange Horned Katydid, tackles a web-weaving Banana Spider. There is no stemming the bloodshed as a Golden Carpenter Ant and the Flag-tailed Assassin Bug fight to the death on a leafy arena. And, in the bout to end all bouts, a Bronzed Huntsman steps into the ring with a Slender-necked Mantis.

Episode Four: Mothers of all Wars Premieres Tuesday, February 14 10PM ET/PT A 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.

In the final battle of the episode one life is lost as a Silverback Cross Spider and a Tiger Assassin Bug cross swords.

Then, a flimsy Costa Rican Cellar Spider faces off with a monster Geophilid Centipede and a Tiger Jumping Spider goes head to head with a Yellow Rainforest Jumping Spider. It's a David and Goliath battle when a Scarlet-mouth Conehead Katydid meets a Costa Rican Orange-mouth Tarantula, and a vicious turf war flares up when a posse of Trap Jaw Ants moves into a Dinosaur Ant neighborhood.

Episode Six: Super Slayers Premieres Tuesday, March 7 10PM ET/PT In the season finale, a teenaged Leaf-tailed Mantis takes on a carnivorous Sunburst Raspy Cricket. Followed by, a heavily armored Spiny Spider being ambushed by a superbly camouflage Crab Spider. But which one survives? In a rainforest pond, a Water Bug duels with a Mudeye and one of them is destined for death. A Domino Beetle does battle with a Crimson-legged Assassin Bug amongst the rainforest blossoms and, in a battle to the death, a Mangrove Tree Crab takes on a Leopard Spider. As in most monster bug wars, just one of them survives.
