An up-close and personal look at all things wildlife.

National Geographic is a name synonymous with curious minds going back more than 132 years. It’s a magazine and a celebrated TV network. Instead of focusing on the entire world of non-fiction including history and culture, Nat Geo Wild dives deep into all things nature and wildlife.

Think of it as a channel dedicated to all manner of critters. If the animal crawls, walks, or swims, you may just see it pop up on Nat Geo Wild. Among the channel’s programming are shows like Snake City, where South African snake catchers capture, show off everything from Black Mambas to King Cobras before releasing them into the wild. If adorable mammals are more your speed, The Incredible Dr. Pol follows a veterinarian in rural Michigan treating everything from dogs to horses and even deer.

Here’s everything you need to know to watch a Nat Geo Wild live stream.
