Summary:
Some animals have always fascinated mankind for their mystery and power. Crocodiles, snakes and sharks are feared as enemies in some cultures and admired as super beings in others. Whether part of our nightmares or greatest hopes, this fascination has pushed man to want to confront these great animals and has given birth to surprising legends and beliefs that still haunt us today. Impressive rituals, ceremonies and combat scenes are gathered into six incredible stories that explain the bond between tribal animals and human kind and why they are so present in our imaginations.
