Destination Truth: Thursday, May 12 at 8pm ET/PT
Could Madagascar be home to the beast known as the Fangalabolo, a bat-like creature with a monkey face? It's certainly possible since 90% of the species found on Madagascar are not found anywhere else in the world. Recent sightings of the Fangalabolo inspired Josh Gates to investigate this mysterious creature. Then, zombie-like ghosts called Taotaomona are said to be roaming the island of Guam. Once revered by the Chamorus tribe, these apparitions are thought to be the spirits of their ancestors. Recent reports, however, imply that the Taotaomona are becoming aggressive and attacking people. Are these reports fact or fiction? Find out when Josh and his team walk among the dead.

Mantracker: Sunday, May 15 at 9pm ET/PT
Don't let the soothing Southern drawl lull you into thinking this married couple are sweet as pecan pie. They bring their fierce competitive spirit (and some day-glo props) to Northern Ontario when they go up against Mantracker. Sidekick Greg Huffman gives Terry Grant the lay of the land around Thunder Bay. Become a fan of Mantracker on Facebook http://ow.ly/4ArCI.
