'River Monsters': Up close and personal with a bone-crushing beast

'River Monsters': Up-Close And Personal With A Bone-Crushing Anaconda


On "River Monsters," Jeremy Wade was forced to face one of his greatest fears.

JEREMY: "Look at the size of this! I've stumbled into a potential man-eater.

JEREMY: "And weighing at least 200 pounds. It's a monstrous beast."

Wade traveled to the Amazon to figure out what river monster killed a man who was found dead with extraordinary bruises on his neck and torso, and multiple crushed bones in his body.

Wade quickly discovered that other people in the area had also gone missing in the water.

When Wade discovered an enormous anaconda in the water, he could only assume that the 200-lb. beast was the likely culprit.

Tweeters were calling Wade a champ, and a beast himself, for having the bravery to get up close and personal with the anaconda.

And fans on Facebook agreed, calling the episode epic and Wade pretty much the coolest guy on TV.

BOTTOM LINE, is that freaking KILLER SNAKE DEAD YET? If not, why? And don't any fool here say that the HUMAN KILLING SNAKE needs to be protected. It's a freaking cold blooded monter.

The "killer snake" is in its natural habitant. When it slithers into Macy's and bits a salesclerk in the arse, then we humans can complain. Man is the only "cold-blooded monster" on the planet.

PETA has nothing to do with it. This is about using some common sense. Or do we wait for another 'animal' tracker to be killed merely for entertainment purposes?

Why don't we just leave these creatures alone. They don't kill you if you stay out of their environment. There's nothing "cool" about disturbing wild creatures.

The anaconda is no monster. Go to our U.S. cities to find killer monsters.

Snakes keep my yard mouse free....which is good since ticks pick up lyme disease from mice...But large predator snakes should be killed when they are come upon....especially in the USA....The everglades are have serious problems from idiots releasing these monsters in the swamps.

Personally I do not feel any animal should be killed because of human stupidity.

RE: your statement:
" which is good since ticks pick up lyme disease from mice..."

Ummm.....NO....

Ticks do not pick up Lyme disease FROM mice. Lyme disease is an infection caused by a bacterium
that is carried BY "deer ticks". The "white footed mouse and deer" are the preferred hosts for
"deer ticks".

RE: your statement:
" The Everglades are having serious problems from idiots releasing these monsters in the swamps. "

This is TRUE.....however....

The MAJORITY of the "overpopulation" of the Everglades with Pythons came about because of
Hurricane Andrew coming thru in 1992 (yr?).....and not individual pet owners releasing their
Pythons "one by one".... Hurricane Andrew decimated that area......destroying private homes
that housed Pythons as well AS......BREEDING facilities in that area that bred Pythons.....
The LARGE "numbers" of Pythons that escaped from BREEDING facilities during Andrew
has had more of an impact that the sporadic release of pythons "one by one"....

There's a fine line between being the bravest man on TV and being the stupidest.

Hi GerriAnne johnny1888 May 20 2014 at 10:07 AM

I wish the media would learn the meaning of brave and courageous. Bravery and courage are when someone chooses to do something which puts them in danger when they don't want to do it. The key word being that they choose to do it. I hate it when the media has some stupid headline like " Lindsey Lohan's Courageous Battle Against Addiction". That was an actual headline. There was nothing courageous about that..

Nice pic of the dead guy. Was that really necessary? Talk about sensationalism and exploitation! WOW

You're using the picture of a dead man to sell an entertainment article? It's not like this man's loved ones can go crying to anybody about what you're doing. You must all be proud of yourselves.

As long as we have our priorities straight, we can get away with anything if his family can't afford to come after us. It's always fun to exploit the poor, right? Just as long as it doesn't happen to anyone we care about, it's all fun. Do you have any pictures of dead kids, preferably under the age of 5? How are we supposed to know if they'll attack little kids if we don't see the body?

You are "assuming" that the dead man's "family" did NOT take these pictures.

You are "assuming" that the dead man's "family" did NOT give their CONSENT for the producers
AND Animal Planet to use these pictures.
