Monster Hunters Head To Ireland

Monster hunters are headed to Ireland in search of a horse-headed eel creature that can grow up to 30 feet long. Sounds interesting...

Ireland has a rich history of these animals, and the documentary makers are planning to search the lakes of Connemara for the horse eel - or peistes as they are known.

The fearsome eel is rumoured to be up to 30 feet long, with a mane of hair running along the back.

Richard Freeman is the head of the Fortean Centre of Zoology in Devon in the UK, and said this is the first time since the 1960s that the Horse Eel has been hunted for.

This centre is the only of it’s kind in the world and Richard, who is an ex-zookeeper, has been at the helm since founding it in 1992.
