Wild Mexico is a journey through an extraordinary land, full of diversity and mystery. Two thousand years ago, the Mexican wilderness was home to the mysterious Ancient Mayans. But the jungle has swallowed their cities and the forest has a new leader – the fearsome Jaguar. Also, meet the world’s only vegetarian spider, recently discovered and never filmed before.
In the oceans, take the plunge with leaping Mobula Rays, Kemp’s Ridley Turtles, Gray Whales and a unique gathering of the oceans gentle giants – Whale Sharks.
The desert is home to the strangest of Mexico’s creatures – meet the elusive Mole Lizard and explore an oasis of water surrounded by salt dunes. Venture into the underworld, into caves where Boa Constrictors lie in ambush for bats.
