'River Monsters': Jeremy Wade Hunts The Mongolian Mauler (VIDEO)

"River Monsters" (Sun., 10 p.m. ET on Animal Planet) host, biologist and extreme angler Jeremy Wade, frequently flirts with danger on his quest to find his prey.

While out hunting for the river monster known as the "Mongolian Mauler," Wade's local guide tells him of a previous excursion when his guide was shot at by gold-prospecting "ninjas" who wanted to scare him off the river.

Eventually Wade did catch his monster, but only after getting some help from a local shaman.

Wade's adventures continue each week on "River Monsters," Sundays at 10 p.m. ET on Animal Planet.

CORRECTION: A previous version of this article misstated that Wade had an encounter with the so-called ninjas; it was, rather, an anecdote related by his guide and re-enacted for the show.
