Most wildlife documentaries focus on animal behavior, but INSIDE NATURE'S GIANTS goes inside the largest animals on the planet to explore their anatomy, reveal their intricate inner workings and uncover their evolutionary secrets.
In this episode, veterinary scientist Mark Evans and comparative anatomist Joy Reidenberg travel to South Africa's KwaZulu Natal Coast, where miles of beach protection nets have been put in place to safeguard humans from a deadly threat: the great white shark. Usually the sharks they catch are quite small, but they've just pulled up the body of a giant, weighing in at over 2,000 pounds and measuring almost 15 feet - this is the largest great white caught in the nets since 2002. It presents an international team of experts with a rare opportunity to explore this hunter's anatomy to find out how it has evolved into the oceans most feared predator.
