Man vs. wild


Read the text and answer the questions

Bear Grylls is a man who likes adventure! In his programme «Man vs. Wild» a helicopter drops him into the areas which are miles away from other people. He has been to the rainforest in Brazil, to frozen mountains and to the desert in Africa. His adventures are more difficult than usual, because he has only the clothes he’s wearing and has to use his skills to survive.
He goes to places that are much hotter or much colder than anywhere on Earth! Bear himself says that extreme cold is worse than extreme heat, but he thinks it is less dangerous in cold places. He says, «Crocodiles and snakes don’t live in cold places!»
