Jeremy Wade, River MonstersJeremy Wade, host of Animal Planet's 'River Monsters,' has made it his mission to hunt down the real-life aquatic animals behind the world's most fearsome urban legends.

Last week's season 3 premiere tackled the red bellied pacu of Papua New Guinea, said to mutilate certain, uh, parts of the male anatomy. This week, Wade goes after the New Zealand longfin eel, a species that can grow up to 6 feet long and appears in many ancient Maori tales.
