Poisonous Stone Fish, Philippines | Food To Die For Ep 04

The Philippines is home to more aquatic species than anywhere on Earth, but hiding in the ocean shadows and coral reef is one of the most dangerous ingredients in the world — the stone fish. Covered with needle sharp spines filled with deadly poison, one wrong step could mean death within the hour. Follow Guy as he travels to Marinduque Island, where local divers risk their lives to catch this scary, yet sweet delicacy.

Deadly Sea Snakes | Food To Die For Ep 05

The black-banded sea krait, also know as irabu by the locals, tastes like a mix of between tuna and smoky jerky. Found in the warm cave waters of Kudaka Island, just off of the main island of Okinawa, this dangerous Japanese delicacy is 10 times more venomous than a cobra, and one bite in the wrong place could mean death within minutes. Known as island’s sacred animal, it’s believed that eating irabu is the secret to a longer life, and was once only reserved for royalty. Follow as Guy enters dark carves with nearly no protective gear and two snake hunters that are far from what you’d expect.
