Sightings of the animal have been documented for at least one hundred years by forest tribes, local villagers, Dutch colonists, Western scientists and travelers. According to witnesses, the animal is a ground-dwelling, bipedal primate that is covered in short fur and stands 80-150 centimeters tall. The scientific community has demonstrated little interest in the Orange Pendek. Thanks to a grant from National Geographic a group of western scientists in Indonesia are searching full time for the animal. Iceland: Worm Monster - A huge worm like creature is said to reside in the remote Lake Lagarfljot. This remote body of water is reportedly where the Worm Monster lives.

|10||Closed CaptioningVideoEpisode 210: Ahool / Pinatubo Monster||Indonesia: Java -- According to mainstream science, the world's biggest bat is the Bismarck flying fox, an animal that never gets larger than six feet from wingtip to wingtip. According to cryptozoology, mainstream scientists might be wrong. Many sightings from seemingly reliable people suggest that this might not be the case. The island of Java, not very far from the Bismarck flying fox's home of New Guinea, is supposed to harbor a bat with a twelve-foot wingspan called the Ahool. Its cries sound like "A-hool" and it eats fish. It has gray fur and a flattened face with black eyes. Its head resembles a monkey's head. This creature is not attributed with supernatural powers, and seems like such a plausible animal that it has drawn the attention of naturalists. The Philippines: Pinatubo Monsters -- Reports coming out of the Philippines describe five "huge, black creatures" swimming in the Tikis River, near the former mining village of Buhawen, scaring Aeta families six years ago. Aeta natives first spotted the 7-foot long mysterious creature in 2001, after mistaking it for floating logs. The strange creatures have been seen swimming in the river below Labuan, which is enclosed by tall, thick bushes. Since the monsters' heads and tails were not seen, no one could venture what these locally named "Pinatubo Monsters" could be. Two tribal leaders were requesting that "biasang tau 'scientists'" come and assist them with the mystery surrounding what the creatures might be. At last word, no scientists have volunteered to go look and reports of the huge creatures continue to emerge.||43:38||$1.99||View in iTunes|
|11||Closed CaptioningVideoEpisode 211: Haunted Forest / Aswang||Japan, Mt. Fuji -- A crowded, dark forest bordering Mt. Fuji, Aokigahara is infamous throughout Japan as a popular spot for those taking their final journey. In 2002, 78 bodies were found within it. By May of 2006, at least 16 new suicides had already been found. No one knows how many bodies go undiscovered. Signs emblazoned with messages are nailed to trees throughout the forest. No sounds can be heard other than those produced by the forest itself. Aokigahara is considered the most haunted location in all of Japan. Spiritualists say that the trees themselves are filled with a malevolent energy, accumulated from centuries of suicides. The Philippines, Aswang -- An Aswang is a ghoulish creature in Filipino folklore. The Aswangs are the most feared of supernatural creatures on the Philippines and are the subject of a wide variety of myths and stories. One trademark or defining feature of Aswangs, which distinguishes them from other Filipino mythological creatures, is their tendency to replace live victims or stolen cadavers with a facsimile that it creates out of tree trunks and other plant materials. Aswangs are particularly feared for their appetite for children.||43:39||$1.99||View in iTunes|
|12||Closed CaptioningVideoEpisode 212: Issie / Icelandic Elves||Japan, Lake Ikeda -- Said to inhabit the depths of Lake Ikeda, Issie is Japan's answer to Nessie. Legends of a mythical creature in the lake have been swirling around for centuries. In 1978 a tourist snapped a series of photos that would make Issie headline news. While scanning the lake in the aftermath of an initial sighting, Mr. Matsuhara's attention was drawn to an object moving in the lake which was somewhat veiled by waves surrounding it. He quickly took a series of photographs and in one of the photos; it appears to be two humps with spinal ridges. By this time the tourism department of the nearby city of Ibusuki had offered a reward of 100,000 Yen to anyone who could produce a photo of Issie. Matsuhara submitted his photo for their consideration and the tourism department officials were impressed enough to award Matsuhara the prize money. Iceland, Elves -- According to the latest reports, the possible existence of Icelandic elves is the main reason many of the roads in the country were rerouted to avoid disturbing rocks where the fantastic creatures possibly live. Most residents polled are not willing to rule out their existence. Many children told their parents about the little inhabitants of the rocks, but more adults have also stated their encounter with elves, as well. According to an engineer with the Iceland Road Authority, they do not want to deny the phenomenon of existing elves. He claims that there are people who can actually negotiate with them.||43:40||$1.99||View in iTunes|
|13||Closed CaptioningVideoEpisode 213: Ninki Nanka / Kikiyoun||Gambia: Ninki Nanka -- Ninki Nanka is a legendary creature based in West African folklore. Descriptions of the creature vary, but most contend that the animal is reptilian and possibly dragon-like. According to tradition, the Ninki Nanka lives in the swamps of West Africa. The animal is said to be extremely large and dangerous. It is believed that when children disobey their parents and go into the swamp, the Ninki Nanka will take them away. This creature's tales were never recorded but the story of it has spread from tribe to tribe all over Africa. A group of "dragon hunters" from the Centre for Fortean Zoology (CFZ) went to Gambia in the summer of 2006 to investigate the Ninki Nanka and take testimony from those who have seen the mythical creature. Gambia: Kikiyoun -- One of the most terrifying and least seen of all the forest creatures is the Kikiyoun. Its very name can conjure a look of terror. It is described as resembling a large owl, especially its head. It has a large beak and raking talons on its arms and feet. In many respects it is a mixture of bird and human. The Bambara people say it has a huge pair of feathered wings that grow from its back. The shoulder joint, which is tipped with a sharp spur, serves as a weapon if its talons fail. It has razor sharp talons, much like those of a large owl, at the end of muscled legs.||43:38||$1.99||View in iTunes|

Simply Put-The Best Show Of Its Type-Ever!
I have been enthralled by this show from Episode One. Josh is intelligent, humorous and is seriously on a mission to discover the truth regarding legendary creatures, myths and legends. Backed by an able crew, the viewer finds his/herself going along on the expeditions as though the audience were another member of the team. I have to admire these people who have gone into the deepest, darkest areas of the planet, to chase a chimera that may or may not exist. As far as evidence, I believe that Josh and crew have caught some serious anomalies that deserve further research by the scientific community. Of particular note is the show on the Yeti, where Josh was able to produce a very credible cast. In addition, the latest endeavor into the Haunted Forest in Japan has produced what may be the holy grail of ghost hunting-an actual apparition caught on tape. That episode sent shivers up my spine. Folks, it doesn't get much better then this. If you are interested in cryptozoology, hauntings and other strange things and events that border on the fringe of our scientific knowledge, this show is a must have. Oh, and the exotic locations and interesting people that the gang meet along the way add additional interest and charm to an already perfect show!
While the crew may only be 90% as scientific as some other shows. They are definitely more realistic than any other show. Josh is obviously on a quest to die in splendid fashion as he sets out to do everything the locals warn him against in every episode. The entertainment value is phenomenal. The evidence they find is actually compelling. This is THE BEST paranormal show out there. If they can keep from being killed by snakes, crocodiles, tigers or hippos the show should have many more seasons. I CAN'T GET ENOUGH OF THIS SHOW!
I love this show, this season is especially good. Some people may think this show is just about trying to find evidence about the paranormal, but it also shows a lot about the different cultures of the countries they travel to. Honestly, I think this show should be on the travel channel. The show, However, is still a great paranormal experience, being just skeptic enough, but with a logical open-mindedness as well.
