Animal Planet is having a River Monsters marathon all day. Although the fish in the episodes are not cichlids, the show is exciting to watch. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the Animal Planet show, River Monsters is hosted by Jeremy Wade and depicts large and dangerous river fish from around the world. Aside from trying to solve various who-done-it attack mysteries, Wade is an accomplished angler who tries to catch these very same fish.

The shows take place in the same waters where many cichlid species also make their homes. River Monsters will travel from South and Central America to Africa and Asia. You can find the show schedules on the Animal Planet website. Make sure to set your DVR.
