Adventurer Richard Terry travels to a remote Indonesian island chain to investigate reports of a flying creature said to attack humans. Villagers say the monster has a huge wingspan and makes a terrifying sound before it attacks, swooping in on its victims in the forest and in villages. Determined to find out what animal is behind the attacks, Nat Geo WILD follows Terry on a journey that takes him from the rainforest canopy, along crocodile-infested rivers and into dark, damp caves.
