Join a thrilling, high-tech expedition to find, once and for all, this ancient terror of the high seas!
- Skeptics and believers get equal time to make their case.
- For centuries these legendary seas monsters have struck fear in every sailor at sea.
- Monsters lurk among us - or do they? Get closer to the truth than ever before!
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!
Is the legend of the Kraken, a tentacled beast as large as a whale, based on myth or a real creature? Could the terrifying sea monster be, in reality, the giant squid? Until 2004, no living specimen of these fascinating and aggressive animals had ever been recorded. In our latest expedition, MonsterQuest strives to get to the bottom of this persistent mystery.
We journey to the Sea of Cortez in Mexico, where fishermen regularly claim to encounter large schools of giant squid. Squid expert Scott Cassel uses lures with built-in cameras to video a Kraken-sized squid 1,000 feet below the ocean. What Cassel and his team discover will make history.
Where there be sea monsters, there also be MONSTERQUEST!
