- Book Now: www.rivermonsters.tv
Man-sized piranhas, fish that electrocute, nine-foot river
sharks (yes, river sharks) ... You've seen the programmes,
now find out what it takes to deliver these outlandish creatures
to your living room -- and why nobody had done it before.
Join the presenter of the global hit series
River Monsters, biology teacher and angler turned seat-of-the-pants
explorer Jeremy Wade, for an evening of mystery, mayhem and
What do you do when something grabs your hand in a pitch-dark
underwater cave? When your aircraft engine fails above the
Amazon jungle? When a doctor tells you about fish boring people
to death? And why is it all worthwhile? (It's even funny sometimes.)
It's also a rare chance to put your own questions.
But catching Jeremy when he's not on Amazon riverboat or living
in a cockroach-infested hut is just like catching a fish:
you must be in the right place at the right time....

Is it safe to get in the water?...
Nearly half the world's fish species live in just 0.01% of
the world's water - our lakes and rivers. Yet most people
know less about what lives in fresh water than they do about
Because some rivers are very hard to get to - and/or too
murky to see into, using normal means - many of their inhabitants
are rarely or never seen in conventional natural history programmes.
Monsters takes a different approach. Biologist and fishing
detective Jeremy Wade starts by examining myths and fishermen's
tales, subjecting them to scientific scrutiny to separate
fact from fiction. Then he homes in on his targets using a
fishing line. The results are some fish of staggering dimensions
and appearance, including some spectacular TV 'firsts'.
To catch up with seasons 1-4, River
Monsters DVDs are available from the Animal Planet online
shop (US/NTSC format). In the UK, DVDs of series 1-3 (PAL
