- Animal Planet reveals the threats of unseen predators that lurk in our bodies -

A tropical vacation becomes a nightmare when a ruthless killer strikes. A young boy falls prey to a vicious attacker, leaving his life hanging by a thread. But the villains aren't criminals - or even humans - but a microbe or creature that is too tiny to be spotted by the naked eye. MONSTERS INSIDE ME reveals the drama and stories of people whose lives were forever altered by an encounter with a parasite. Find out what chaos and damage these critters are capable of when the second season of MONSTERS INSIDE ME premieres this month.

Germs and microscopic amoeba invisible to the human eye, worms and insects thirsty for blood... diminutively, yet deceptively deadly. These organisms prey on humans, creating chaos within our bodies. The second season of MONSTERS INSIDE ME features more parasites that can easily hijack our bodies, disable our immune systems, and drain us of life.

A fourth grade teacher's liver is being destroyed from within and no doctor knows why. A young dance instructor is crippled before doctors find a huge mass unlike any they have seen before. A firefighter battles for his own life when his brain begins to swell. From isolated cases to massive outbreaks, catch the gripping real-life battles between modern medicine and evolution as these individuals fight off their unseen and unwelcomed assailants in the following episodes of MONSTERS INSIDE ME.
