'River Monsters': Jeremy Wade Is Tracking The Tiger Fish

Jeremy Wade went off in search of a fish that is supposedly as deadly as a piranha but up to eight times larger in size on "River Monsters" (Sun., 10 p.m. ET on Animal Planet. What he found in Botswana was a fish called in-guesh by the locals, but better known as a tiger fish. It has the same deadly sharp teeth as a piranha, but can grow to more than four feet in length.

Wade showed a piranha, which is smaller than a human hand, to emphasize the comparison, but the real test of the deadliness of a tiger fish would be if they hunt in packs, much like piranhas do. Right now, piranhas are among the most feared animals among people, but maybe they should be replaced by the tiger fish. Especially after Wade did indeed confirm that they swim and hunt in packs.

See what Jeremy Wade tracks down next as "River Monsters" continues every Sunday at 10 p.m. ET on Animal Planet.
