9 PM ET/PT - BEAST TRACKER
Aliens are invading... not from a distant planet by right where we live. From the murky alligator swamps of Louisiana to Hawaii's pristine but deadly waters to the snake invested waterways of Florida to the hog ravaged plains of Texas, humans are struggling to find a balance between conservation and survival as deadly animals increasingly find their way into our everyday lives. Dr. Andrew West is the BEAST TRACKER and he's on a mission to investigate the "alien invasion" and the fine line between thrive and survive. BEAST TRACKER premieres Wednesday, February 1st at 9pm as Dr. West takes a closer look at the alligator - a 300 million year old relic of the dinosaur age that today finds itself dangerously out of place in the modern world. Dr. West sets out to discover why there is so much conflict between humans and alligators and finds out what is being done to prevent it. He hunts for monster gators in the mosquito infested swamps of Louisiana and tells the blood-curdling stories of people who have faced the terror of being savaged by a prehistoric monster.
