spelling. He would like to show me a picture of one. He says he saw
it on man vs wild about a week ago. Many thanks.

Beetle before it becomes an adult Beetle.

Bear Grylls eats grubs in the
Mexico episode (below).
Six Premiere Episodes Begin in
In each episode ofMan vs. Wild,
adventurer Bear Grylls strands himself in popular wilderness destinations
where tourists often find themselves lost or in danger. Once there he
finds his way back to civilization, demonstrating local survival
techniques along the way.
Everglades World Premiere Friday, June 15, 9
Host Bear Grylls gets stranded in the swamps of the Florida
Everglades, where each year at least 60 tourists need to be rescued.
With more than a million alligators, thousands of snakes and even
black bears roaming these waterlogged lands, the area has more than
its share of hazards. Bear demonstrates how to keep alligators at
bay, deal with vicious razor-sharp grass, and find stomach-churning
food that will keep you alive if you find yourself lost in this
beautiful but dangerous destination.
Iceland World Premiere Friday, June 22, 9 p.m.
While hundreds of thousands of tourists visit Iceland every year
to witness freezing glaciers, steaming geothermal areas and huge
black sand deserts, more than a thousand visitors find themselves
requiring rescue. Adventurer Bear Grylls demonstrates how to make a
snow cave, find water in deep tunnels, and avoid frostbite in this
Arctic environment. Because finding food is a problem in this
climate, Bear is forced to eat a sheep's eyeball and catch a
ptarmigan (a wild bird). He also has to deal with blizzards and 50
mph winds as he attempts to reach safety.
Mexico World Premiere Friday, June 29, 9 p.m.
Three hundred miles south of the U.S. border, half a million
people visit MexicoÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s Copper Canyon every year Ã¢â‚¬â€ and over a
hundred find themselves in need of rescue. Four times larger and
about 1,000 feet deeper than the Grand Canyon, starvation and
dehydration are big threats for anyone who gets stranded here. With
only a water bottle, flint and knife, host Bear Grylls demonstrates
how to build a simple compass and climb sheer cliffs safely. For
shelter, he uses ancient caves and makes fire with a traditional
"fire saw." Bear also offers important techniques for finding
scorpions or grubs and fishing without a rod or line.
Australia World Premiere Friday, July 6, 9 p.m. ET/PT
More than 5 million visitors come to Australia's outback every
year -- but hundreds need rescuing in this land of extreme heat,
snake bites and cyclones. Host Bear Grylls travels to Australia's
Kimberly region, which is roughly the size of California and a
mixture of huge scrub deserts, dry riverbeds and red sandstone
cliffs full of deep gorges. Bear puts himself in the position of a
lost tourist to demonstrate how to prevent sunstroke, find bush
tucker and explain why drinking your own urine could save your life.
He also identifies what you can eat in the outback. During his
journey, Bear builds a shelter in the middle of a lightning storm
and confronts Australia's deadly saltwater
Ecuador World Premiere Friday, July 13, 9 p.m.
Ecuador is home to the world's longest mountain range and the
world's biggest and most impenetrable jungle, the Amazon. Last year,
more than a million people came to experience this vast wilderness
Ã¢â‚¬â€ and 55 got lost in the country's mountains, jungles or waterways
and needed to be rescued. In this episode, host Bear Grylls
paraglides onto the edge of the Andes and follows rivers into the
jungle -Ã¢â‚¬â€ bringing him face to face with huge colonies of
spear-nosed bats, giant weevil grubs and vicious piranhas. Bear
builds a bamboo bridge and a bow and arrow to successfully catch
fish, but it doesn't always go his way mdash he's forced to ride the
rapids of the Amazon on a single tree trunk.
Scotland World Premiere Friday, July 20, 9 p.m.
In Scotland's Cairngorm National Park, tourists come to walk in
the glens or climb the mountains, but few realize the park is
classified as an Arctic landscape Ã¢â‚¬â€ and an average of 30 tourists
die here every year. Host Bear Grylls shows how to navigate the
region using ice formations and moss growth, and tests snow slopes
for avalanche potential. He uses moss to purify water and skins a
red deer for shelter. For food, he traps and cooks a rabbit. Bear
crosses deep marshes that can swallow a person and uses fallen trees
that all was helpful, I was curious about this word Grum.
