'River Monsters' returns to Animal Planet on 27 May

MUMBAI: Animal Planet's show 'River Monsters' featuring biologist and fishing detective Jeremy Wade returns for a new season on 27 May every night at 8.00 pm.

He has spent 25 years exploring the planet's remotest rivers and lakes, hunting for monster-sized fish. The show aims to go where no wildlife programme has gone before, revealing the creatures that lurk in the murky depths of inland waterways.

Wade travels worldwide to solve freshwater fish tales and lures in watery culprits that allegedly attack mankind. This season, he finds himself in places he's never explored as he travels to the far reaches of the globe - from serpentine underwater caves to remote rivers filled with freshwater crocodiles. Jeremy searches for the giant cousin of the piranha that - with its gnarly teeth and gnawing jaws - has turned from vegetarian to meat eater, with a particular interest in male genitalia.

Viewers can follow him to Thailand where the adventurous angler goes in search of what is thought to be the largest freshwater fish - the giant freshwater stingray. Also known locally as the "wish-you-were-dead" fish, this UFO-shaped marine monstrosity is said to measure about 16-feet long and seven-feet across and is approximately 1,300 pounds; but what could really kill is its 18-inch barbed, bayonet-like tail that could whip extremely painful venom through an unfortunate passerby. But even that is not going to stop Jeremy from tracking down this mysterious monster. Jeremy's adventures take him all over the world to solve freshwater fish mysteries in locations such as Congo, South Africa, Uganda, Ethiopia, Alaska, and Florida.

Wade said, "This season, I get into even more unfamiliar territory. The destinations are diverse, the stories strange, and the fish every bit as fearsome but in unexpected ways. I encountered fish with invisible powers, others that live to a century, the largest true freshwater fish so far and the longest struggle I've had with a live fish to date."

Wade discovers a freshwater fish that can grow as long as a whale, a species of shark that lives in freshwater 100 miles from the sea, and a fish with teeth as big as a lion's as well as other creatures and moments captured on film for the first time. Pushing his mental and physical limits to the maximum, join the extreme fisherman as he attempts to capture these amazing creatures and tell their tales.
