River Monsters: Searching for a Killer Torpedo in Central America



In the heart of Central America, in a land known for its drug smuggling and remote jungle waterways, there lurks a man-sized KILLER.  It is said to reach eight feet in length and weigh around 300 pounds!  And, when it leaps into boats, it causes fatal injuries as it knocks fishermen unconscious and smashes their bones.

Tune in Sundays @ 9PM e/p for all-new episodes of RIVER MONSTERS.

Jeremy Wade is taken to the breaking point and beyond, as he had to relearn everything he knows about fishing in an attempt to catch this elusive River Monster.  How did he catch this beast? Watch the How to Catch a River Monster series and see for yourself:
