Dave and Cody of Dual Survival dive in to investigate why no two species of shark attack in the same manner. Through a series of groundbreaking tests and the use of innovative high-tech camera technologies, they’ll examine the shark’s unique savagery and specialized methods of killing, revealing exactly why they’re so deadly.
Most of us think of sharks as blank-eyed killing machines, but in Shark City, we’ll get to know a handful of them as individuals. We’ll follow the sharks of the Bahamas through their days and nights to find out how they size each other up, what they like to eat and what it is that they’re afraid of. This show will feature the amazing talents and hilarious insights of our Chief Shark Officer, Andy Samberg.
