"Animal Face-Off pits nature's strongest, fiercest and deadliest warriors against each other in battle to determine who rules the animal kingdom. Zoological experts create biomechanical replicas of each creature in the "Bite Lab," measuring every strength and weakness. Then, the data is uploaded to a simulated battlefield, where the claws come out and the virtual fur starts flying as each wild warrior stakes its claim to the title of King of the Beasts. Hippopotamus Vs. Bull Shark. With teeth more than a foot long and a temper shorter than an African snowstorm, the hippopotamus is a fierce – and feared – warrior on the banks of the Zambesi River. But, when a hungry bull shark ventures upriver and hones in on a hippo as a potential meal, the stage is set for an epic battle. Hippo expert Dr. Ellen Rogers helps the build team accurately recreate the size and crushing power of the hippo's tremendous mouth, while shark biologist Dan Huber consults on his undersized contender – though extremely aggressive, bull sharks weigh only about 1/10th as much as hippos. It's David versus Goliath all over again when these two meet in the virtual ring."
