MIAMI (AP) — A new television special is set to take viewers away from Florida's world-famous resorts and tourist traps and into its deadly swamps and other environments.

"Florida Untamed" will premiere Sunday evening with two one-hour episodes on the Nat Geo WILD cable network.

The show will focus the many animals that call Florida home, including American crocodiles, alligators, Burmese pythons, sea turtles and rattlesnakes.

One segment follows three gator hatchlings as they try to survive the many dangers of the swamp. The second hour focuses on the creatures that inhabit the coral islands and mangroves that run along the shores.

"Florida Untamed" is part of Nat Geo WILD's "Destination Wild" series, which features locations around the world.

The special was made by 2C Media, a South Florida production company.
