MQ Mini-Marathon

Posted by: Loren Coleman on February 17th, 2010

Missed the Mothman episode?  Need a break from the Olympics?  Here comes a respite in the form of a few re-runs for a snowy Wednesday.

All times are Eastern (check local listings) and the episodes are on History.

MonsterQuest : Gigantic Killer Fish II Airs on Wednesday February 17 01:00 PM

MonsterQuest : Gigantic Killer Fish II Airs on Wednesday February 17 07:00 PM

Monsters lurk in our lakes and rivers and along our coastlines, waiting to get their jaws into their next victim. The Goliath Grouper is a monster fish that inhabits the tropical shallow waters of Florida and the Caribbean. In 1895, the New York Times reported on a monster grouper that measured in at over 1,500 pounds. This super-sized fish is making a comeback, growing to immense proportions with the aggression to match. A recent victim was attacked while spear fishing and describes having the Goliath grouper wrap its vicious jaws around his head. Meanwhile, in Minnesota, a resurgence of a monster no less aggressive is on the rise: the Muskie. Also known as the muskellunge, this monster fish has frightening teeth that draw blood from a growing list of victims. Now, our team launches expeditions beneath the waters of Florida and sends ROVs under the ice of Minnesota to find out how large and how aggressive these creatures can get.

MonsterQuest : Mothman Airs on Wednesday February 17 08:00 PM

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.

MonsterQuest : Giant Killer Snakes Airs on Wednesday February 17 09:00 PM

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?

MonsterQuest : Boneless Horror Airs on Wednesday February 24 01:00 PM

Throughout history there have been sightings of a massive Octopus big enough to attack and sink boats. Could such a creature really exist? Our divers probe the depths of the North Pacific where the world’s largest known species of octopus lives. Could these octopuses be a food source for a monster? The investigation will use various underwater camera systems, including a tiny camera small enough to probe inside octopus lairs. Deep waters, rough currents, freezing temperatures and the prospect of encountering a 20-ton boneless horror make this a dangerous expedition.

About Loren Coleman
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013.

    I’m really looking forward to next month for Monsterquest, Mar. 10 – Monster Humanoids (maybe something to do with that crazy Mexican rat-alien-thing?), Mar. 17 – Sierra Sasquatch, Mar. 24 – Werewolf. As for tonight, I’ll probably skip it to watch Ghost Hunters and Man vs Wild. I wish they didn’t air every TV show I love on Wednesday nights. Giant snakes don’t really excite me, but that’s probably because I live in Hawaii and have never seen them or had to worry about them.

  2. Mibs responds:

    I never found the Mothman phenomenon (if it’s even considered that) very compelling. The association with Omens also seems to drag it down more on the level of urban legend than an actual cryptozoid yet to be discovered.

    Based on the eyewitness accounts presented in MQ it looks like they were describing night owls of various breeds and sizes (some can “look” 6 ft. when in full flight but aren’t really). That one photographer in Sacramento who photographed something on the bridge most likely saw a Stork. I’ve been near that bridge myself and have seen both eagles, storks, owls and even pelicans swarm down from that bridge.
