A massive one-eyed monster lurking in the Amazon. A freakish desert creature spraying acid and delivering electric shocks. An ape-like creature walking upright in the Indonesian jungle. These are the monsters of persistent myth and legend—and may just be based on real creatures. If they're out there, someone needs to find them and document them to prove their existence.


Host Pat Spain is an explorer willing to go to extremes to separate fact from fiction in Beast Hunter. Spain travels the globe in search of mythical creatures that stalk our wildernesses. From the Brazilian Amazon to the Gobi Desert, Spain begins each mission with adventure in his veins and a tradition of investigating monsters in his DNA. His great-uncle, Charles Fort, was a paranormal pioneer who investigated strange reports from around the world at the start of the 20th century. Now, Spain continues the legacy of scouting the bizarre and brings the latest technology to search for a scientific explanation for the seemingly outlandish stories that local tribes and residents swear are truth.

    Best Uses

      The series was so interesting - filled with adventure. The location filming was incredible - makes me want to visit many of the places Pat visited. Pat was believable, informative, interesting, and willing to do some pretty crazy stuff. You could tell how much he enjoyed what he was doing. Truly awesome. Can't wait to own the whole series.

National Geographic dissects the fascinating physiology of this living fossil, from its 24 clustered eyes down to the tips of its stinging tentacles, and examines how man's impact on the environment may be creating a growing invasion.
