River Monsters Season 1 Episode 3 (S01E03) Alligator Gar

3 years ago14.5K views

Jeremy travels to the Trinity River in Texas, USA to discover the truth behind the alligator gar, a massive predator blamed for horrifying attacks on people. Reports claim this fish is more dangerous than a man-eating shark. With huge jaws and two rows of needle-sharp teeth, the gar proves an elusive opponent. Throughout the years this fish was in the centre of humanity's misunderstanding. Large populations were killed by electric gar destroyers all around the country, bringing this huge animal into the near extinction. Bowfishermen also kill this fish with spears (leaving the fish to die in painful ways as seen in some internet videos), but Jeremy wants to catch one gar alive and release it back safely. Finally hooking a large gar, Jeremy finds out once and for all if the alligator gar deserves its reputation as a river monster.
