If the honey bee wasn’t around to pollinate the planet’s flowers, we would have few fruits and vegetables, and many of our most important crops would disappear. But disappear is exactly what the world’s bees are doing. In the US alone, one-third of the honey bee population has vanished, seemingly into thin air.
Bees are in crisis, and scientists, beekeepers and farmers alike now face a race against time to figure out what to do about it. Featuring close-up footage of these insects at work, this documentary attempts to get to the bottom of what is happening to the world’s bees.

If you’ve ever come face-to-face with a viper, you’ll know exactly why they have the reputation of being one of nature’s most fearsome predators. One look at a viper tells you that they are built for the kill: they have wide mouths that open to a staggering 110 degrees, sharp, retractable fangs that deliver deadly venom in a clinical stabbing motion, and huge, triangular heads that allow them to devour larger prey.
Find out about the bioengineering and astounding anatomy that make vipers such successful killers.
Ultimate Vipers is part of Nat Geo Wild's "Ultimate" series of documentaries which include Ultimate Shark, Ultimate Snake and Ultimate Disasters.
