From the lochs of Scotland to the forests of America's Northwest, MONSTERQUEST sets out to get to the bottom, once and for all, of our most persistent and compelling creature stories. All we know of so many monsters are campfire stories, blurry films and grainy photographs, so this fascinating new series takes a fresh look at the legends and seeks new, reliable evidence. Open-eyed historical research and real scientific analysis set the stage for groundbreaking field work: high-tech expeditions to the home turf of legendary monsters. If MONSTERQUEST can't find them, nobody can!
Josef Stalin had a dream: an invincible human being, insensitive to pain and tolerant of bad Russian food. He also had access to what can only be described as a mad scientist, Ilia Ivanov. Together they pursued a campaign of cross-breeding and hybridization that shocked the world when it was uncovered.
In legend and the laboratory, the idea of super-strong, presumably obedient ape-human hybrids has sparked the imagination for generations. MonsterQuest examines the long and often bizarre tradition surrounding these creatures and recounts notable ape-on-human attacks.
How close did we come to being overrun by RUSSIA'S KILLER APEMEN? THE HISTORY CHANNEL%reg; tells the whole amazing story in this episode of MonsterQuest!
