** In Season 5, he provides a rational explanation that some sightings of the Loch Ness Monster could be due to Greenland Sharks that have come up into the loch from the sea to feed on spawning salmon.

* GoneHorriblyRight: Some of the strangest and most disturbing situations are actually the result of introduced species that adapt far better than expected to a new environment -- the pacu, the snakehead, and numerous others are fairly harmless in their native habitat, but removed from their normal food sources and predators, their behavior and threat level alter dramatically, in some cases going from the bottom of the food chain to apex predator. The snakeheads seem to be causing little trouble as of 2015, but the pacu, on the other hand....

** Don't place dead bodies into a river occupied by goonch catfish. They will gain a taste for human flesh.

** Don't place dead bodies into a river occupied by goonch or sareng/tapah catfish. They will gain a taste for human flesh.



** Do not fish for a sareng/tapah catfish in India or the Hindu gods will [[BlessedWithSuck curse your fishing trip with suck.]] Likewise, do not bathe in their habitat or they will go after you.



** The sareng catfish is so revered by the Hindus that it is said anyone who tries to catch it is doomed to fail. Even Jeremy falls prey to the curse. At least until the last episode.

** Then there was the sareng/tapah, the goonch's equally ferocious cousin. He failed to catch one in season four, something Jeremy thinks might be attributed to its holy nature, as anyone who tries to catch it will be cursed with bad luck. Come the final episode five years later and he finally lands it.

** In "Prehistoric Terror", zigzagged with the Heliocoprion -- although definitely incredibly sharp, its spiraling jaw was specialized for feeding on boneless prey like cephalopods and sharks -- and played straight with the Dunkleosteus, whose shear-like jaws were evolved to crunch through armor and still be sharp enough to cut flesh afterwards. In the episode, he notes that it's been estimated that the "Bone Cruncher" had a bite force in the range of 8000 pounds per square inch, which makes it one of the most powerful bites in the history of the animal kingdom.

* KillerRabbit: Freshwater Pufferfish. No, really....the poison is the least of your concerns with them: their bite is very brutal, capable of severing arteries or removing appendages in humans.
** Pacific Halibut. These are part of the flatfish family -- which means their defining feature is that they spend the vast majority of their time flat on the seabed waiting for prey to come to them. But they're so big and strong that they can easily drag an unprepared fisherman from their boat to their death in the icy waters. They're so dangerous that traditional Inuit fishhooks are actually designed to ''avoid'' hooking all but the smaller specimens.
