Back in the late 1980s-early 90s, Lizard Man mania spread across South Carolina after a man claimed his car was scratched and damaged by a huge creature that had a lizard-like head. Local folklore has related stories of Bigfoot in the area for decades and with dense forest and swampland in some places, it is not hard to imagine a large hominid evading detection for centuries. Snow Walker Prime interviews a low-country resident and expert hunter about his first-hand experience with strangeness, from strange growls to unidentified scat signs. His accounts are frank, convincing and fascinating. In a very different sort of investigation, 'Monsters' star angler Wade in Champlain waters, as he films an episode of River Monsters for Animal Planet. While he won't say specifically that he is hunting for Champ, resident lake monster, there's little doubt that is the plan. In other rather fishy news, experts are trying to explain the Mystery of the one-in-a-million 'Frankenstein fish' after a fisherman in the UK hooked a very Tim Burton-esque fish that appears to be 3 different species together. The general consensus is that an escaped pet fish bred with a common carp and this beautiful oddity was the result. The fisherman kindly threw the strange fish back into the water, which we found to be a nice touch as we like the thought of it going on to create more possibly even stranger fish rather than ending up hanging on someone's wall as a trophy.
