Rural forests and meadows aren't the only places wildlife thrives. Our urban centers are filled with exotic animals in some of the most unlikely locations, often hidden from the casual observer. From back alleys to swamps, our major cities sometimes include resident giant snakes, large snails, boars armed with razor-sharp tusks, endangered sea turtles and unusual birds. Wild Nights with Mireya Mayor explores the animal kingdom thriving in our "concrete jungles." Primatologist and National Geographic Explorer Mireya Mayor has spent years traveling to exotic locations in search of rare species, but now turns her expertise to the hot spots of New Orleans, Miami and Rio de Janeiro. Armed with flashlights and night vision equipment, her challenge is to locate as many wild denizens as she can in a typical 24-hour period.
