Dominic Monaghan can’t be tamed in his newest season of “Wild Things with Dominic Monaghan” premiering tomorrow night at 10 p.m. on BBC America.

The 37-year-old, former “Lost” and “Lord of the Rings” star travels through Kenya where he embarks on a journey to find the giant spitting cobra; which according to National Geographic is “believed to deliver more venom with a single bite than any other cobra on the planet.”

Deadly snakes are just the beginning to this cross-continental expedition. In this season, a six-ton elephant nearly tramples Monaghan and his fearless cameraman Frank, after it awakens from a surgery lead by a team of rescue workers who remove a poacher’s arrow from its huge body.

Monaghan, executive producer and host, says that this season is even more adrenaline pumping than the last. “The adventures and interactions with the animals ramp up in intensity. The pace is faster and the animals are bigger, wilder, and closer than ever before.” He added in his statement, “There will be blood.”

In addition to Kenya, the wildlife and travel enthusiast will be exploring the Amazon, Australia, Brazil and Japan. Monaghan daringly interacts with some of the most dangerous creatures known to man in almost every climate to preserve the creatures he is most passionate about while educating his viewers.
