The River Monsters Season 2 DVD set takes you up the Congo, along Thailand's MeKong River, over Africa's Rift Valley, and deep into the Alaskan wilderness in search of river creatures.

The River Monsters DVDs frighten and fascinate as you watch the power, strength and speed of these lethal monsters.

In the River Monsters Season 2 DVD set, join host, biologist and extreme angler Jeremy Wade, as he returns to catch more extraordinary and supersized fish and investigating further freshwater mysteries and debunking weirder underwater myths. Jeremy Wade will travel the globe and risk life and limb on his journey to uncover the truth about the dark secrets of our planet's rivers and lakes. The River Monsters DVD show you mysterious predators with the potential to kill including the Giant Snakehead, Goliath Tiger Fish, Giant Stingray, and Bull shark.

Buy the River Monsters Season 2 DVD set and explore the waters as Jeremy Wade discovers legend and lore around the world as he hunts the Killer Snakehead, the Demon Fish, and more.Episode 1: Death Ray: Jeremy Wade heads to The Mekong River in Thailand in search of one of the world's largest and most terrifying river fish the Giant Freshwater Stingray. Armed with a venomous 10 barb on the end of its whip-like tail, this mysterious 700 lb predator tests Jeremy to his physical limit, snapping his heavy duty rod, tearing the muscle in his bicep, and luring him into a confrontation with the border police. In this epic quest, Wade witnesses a remarkable event in the life of one of these River Monsters and sheds some light on the natural history of this most elusive of monsters.

Episode 2: Killer Snakehead: Angler Jeremy Wade is in for another nerve-testing encounter of the scaly kind as he homes in on a Far Eastern predator that's now invading America's backyards. Accused of homicide, and said to breathe air and crawl on land, the Snakehead is a monster that sounds more like a gangster than a fish. But does it deserve its 'Jack the Ripper' reputation? Is it really capable of killing a human? And what lies in wait for Jeremy when he ditches his rod and swims into the lair of the beast?

Episode 3: Alaskan Horror: Deep in the forbidding Alaskan wilderness, people on two bottomless lakes have been vanishing without trace for thousands of years. Extreme angler, Jeremy Wade, searches for the lethal lake monster of native legend that's dragging them down to an icy grave. Sub-arctic fishing is a first for Jeremy and ends up with him landing the largest fish he's ever caught, but is this the monster?

Episode 4: Demon Fish: Jeremy Wade journeys up the infamous Congo River in Central Africa in search of the notorious Goliath Tiger Fish a terrifying beast that preys on the unsuspecting. This creature combines the strength, speed and ferocity of all the river monsters Jeremy has ever encountered, creating the most horrific yet perfect freshwater killing machine anywhere in the world. With some of the biggest teeth of any freshwater fish, its ferocity is the stuff of nightmares. This mysterious monster predator pushes Jeremy to his physical and mental limit. It is going to take all of his skills and some supernatural help from the local witch doctor to catch one.

Episode 5: Congo Killer: Jeremy Wade travels to the dark heart of Africa and journeys up one of the few rivers left on earth that will still really test a fisherman. This is the Congo, a river shrouded in mystery, steeped in legends and soaked in violence. And there is one spirit in particular, called Mami Wata, that is said to lure fishermen from their boats taking them to the bottom of the river, where they are imprisoned for eternity. Farfetched? Maybe not. Jeremy discovers that the truth is every bit as frightening as the myth.

Episode 6: Rift Valley Killers: Jeremy Wade is on a quest to Africa's Rift Valley, the cradle of mankind, to explore the roots of fishing and the monsters these first fishermen would have faced. Fishermen here have one of the most dangerous jobs in existence. Storms come out of nowhere, giant crocs attack from beneath, hippos maul you to death, and rival fishing gangs will kill you for your catch. But at the heart of this lurks a fish that can measure over 8ft long and weigh over 500 lb the Nile Perch. This is a place where myth and reality merge, and it could be Jeremy's most dangerous mission yet.

Episode 7: Bull Shark: The bull shark is the most aggressive and unpredictable of all the sharks, thought to be responsible for more attacks on people than any other. Last year the biggest Bull Shark ever recorded was caught in South Africa in a river. Was this monstrous freshwater catch a horrifying fluke, or are there more shark giants prowling this river? Jeremy Wade heads to South Africa to see if he can land a monster freshwater shark of his own. See if last year's catch was a one off or if there are more monsters out there, and discover if the presence of this known man-eater is a human tragedy just waiting to happen.

              Very informative. It does a wonderful job of dicussing how each culture is affected of the fish the show investigates; such as, the myths of each culture towards that particular fish, and how each culture survives from the fishing trade. Can't wait to order season three.

                        For someone who wishes to be informed about a subject matter not often seen or written about-namely the freshwater world of fish around the world-this is a great product to have. It's not your typical fishing show and again the host Jeremy Wade does his utmost to inform the viewer about fish obscurities from as far away as Thailand and the Congo. Always nice to see fish being caught and then released in a humane manner, and the viewer can also enjoy spectacular cinematography and edge-of-your-seat excitement. Wonderful, informative series-would definitely recommend buying both seasons.

                        if you are an avid outdoorsman and love science these are great for you to get and share with friends and family. they can change your entire opinion about certain types of fish as well as inform you of what to watch for when you are in water ways, streams and rivers. my 6 and 4 year old and i sit and watch these for hours on end. great product.

                          I bought this for my son's birthday since her LOVES Jeremy Wade and the show River Monsters. Does not disappoint and is informative at the same time. I even get wrapped up in it. Two thumbs up!!! [...] One of the DVD's cam and the box was cracked and the DVD was not useable. We had a new one at our home within 48 hours...no hassle. Great job!!!!!! Customer for life!!!

                                Season 2 Of River Monsters rocks! If you thought season 1 was great, season 2 is simply fantastic. I was wondering if they could top season 1 and they have.

                                More interesting fish and locations, including a trip to the U.S. And some of the toughest and biggest fish Jeremy Wade has ever caught.

                                Congats to Animal Planet for giving the green light for a second season of one if its best and informative shows.

                                Looking forward to more River Monsters!

                                    This was as good if not better than the first seaon of River Monsters. I really enjoyed it and I'm looking forward to the 3rd seaon to come. FYI The Goliath Tiger Fish was the best episode!
