MonsterQuest : Ohio Grassman
Airs on Wednesday January 27 06:00 PM

Just miles from the industrial cities of Ohio, there is a bogeyman that has terrified local children for over a century. According to stories and sightings, the Grassman is similar to a Bigfoot, but builds strange nests and has been known to attack. Can science help explain this creature? Is a primate skull, a strange print and a new video the first direct proof behind the legendary Grassman? We’ll sift through the existing evidence and take to the skies in a search for what is stalking Ohio.

MonsterQuest : Giant Killer Snakes
Airs on Wednesday January 27 08:00 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 : Giant Pythons in America
Airs on Wednesday January 27 09:00 PM

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.

MonsterQuest : Giant Bear Attack
Airs on Wednesday February 03 01:00 PM

Are big bears are getting more assertive and aggressive? In pre-historic times, giant bears weighed up to a ton and stalked early man. Listen as witnesses describe horrific bear attacks and take a look at unusual bear remains. The team journeys from Alaska to New Jersey to learn about bear activity and if hybridization or the next step in bear evolution could produce another crop of giant bears?

    I’m only mildly interested in this one. I want to see real cryptids. We all know there are pythons, boas and who knows what other exotic pets have been released into the Florida wilderness? This is nothing new. I want to see shows about truly “unknown” creatures. I’d love to see episodes about the “Heavenly Lake Monster” in China, “Memphre” or even another episode of “Sasquatch attack”, following up on the theory of the migration patterns, that was proposed in the last one. Shows about snakes, bees and sharks, belong on “Jack Hannah’s World of Adventure”.

  2. cryptidsrus responds:

    I tend to somewhat agree with Cryptidcrazy but, nevertheless, I will still watch the episodes.

    Should be interesting on their own terms.

    Personally I would like nothing better than to have MQ do an episode on the Tatzelwurm, the snake-like Cryptid in Switzerland. I’m a huge fan of Ole Tatzy. :)

  3. MisterMonster responds:

    This was actually a pretty interesting episode. I learned some new things. However, the Central Park segment seemed unnecessary. I don’t really have a problem with the animal episodes, but it just seems like a letdown that they are dominating the first few weeks of the season. Last year, they saved them towards the end. I’m jonesing right now for some “real” monsters. So far we got another Bigfoot episode. Their such a wide diversity of mystery animals to choose from.

  4. Grant responds:

    I’m extremely attached to reptiles, and only afraid of poisonous snakes to the degree of not TOUCHING one, and no farther. So if I didn’t have cats and dogs, so-called dangerous reptiles are something I’d probably take in stride. Again, I wouldn’t be RECKLESS around them, but that’s about it.

  5. grandmamoses responds:

    Monsterquest apparently isn’t setting their fact checking standards on python length, high enough. MQ stated quite early in the program that there is no evidence of a python longer than 30 feet. Except within the last week, I watched a TV documentary that featured a python that is currently held in captivity in a village, that measures 48 feet. And that other show also had live footage of that little sweet heart snuggling up to his or her keeper. Which is something that we are not exactly accustomed to seeing in the Bigfoot/Sasquatch segments, unfortunately.

  6. Cryptidcrazy responds:

    grandmamoses, that 48′ reticulated python named “Fragrant Flowers”, turned out to be a hoax. It was much smaller than advertised. In fact, it was around 21′ feet long, which is still big, but not close to the monster it claimed to be.
