Giant Pythons In America A deadly, slithering menace is taking over Florida and may be heading north. For more than 100 years, giant pythons have been discovered in parts of the Sunshine State, but since Hurricane Andrew in 1992, their territory has rapidly spread. Now, MonsterQuest searches for incursions in the outskirts of Miami, a population hotspot that is just moments from schools and homes. The team investigates whether pythons could hybridize and adapt, enabling them to threaten every state in the US.
Giant Killer Bees More than 50 years ago, South American scientists attempted to cross-breed bees that would produce more honey than ever before possible. But instead, they created a monster. Today, these giant bees are on the loose, spreading northward and invading US cities.

Mothman In 1967, a giant winged monster reportedly terrorized the skies over a small town in West Virginia, ending in a tragic bridge collapse that claimed forty-six lives. Since then the Mothman, as the beast was known, has become an omen of doom and death. With new sightings across America today, this creature may be returning. In a search for answers, MonsterQuest will use night time surveillance, perception tests and forensic sketching to determine if the beast is myth or frightening reality.
Giant Killer Snakes Head deep into the Venezuela wilderness where there have been sightings of huge man-eating snakes - anaconda. For the first time ever an industrial acoustic sonar camera will be used to search for these monsters. The investigation will also search the Everglades of Florida where pet pythons have escaped and are multiplying and growing to huge sizes, preying on all kinds of animals, even swallowing a full grown alligator in one case. Could a human become their next victim?
Piranha Invasion For centuries the amazon has been home to a frightening feeding frenzy of the most ferocious fresh-water monsters known to man... piranhas.

Now, these deadly monsters are appearing in US lakes and rivers. The MonsterQuest team is investigating how they may be adapting, and whether these carnivorous beasts could breed here and devastate our waters.
