- Actor and comic book writer Kevin Grevioux uses science and engineering to construct a flying, fire-breathing dragon -

This month, actor Kevin Grevioux attempts to resurrect a creature from folktales and legends, as he uses science and modern engineering to construct a flying, fire-breathing dragon on MONSTER TRACKER. This one-hour special takes you on a fascinating journey to investigate how the laws of science are used to explain these fantastic creatures, and what our world would look like if dragons lived among us. Join Kevin on MONSTER TRACKER where fantasy meets reality.

Monsters and mythical creatures are no strangers to Kevin Grevioux. This multi-talented actor - who is a comic book writer and has a degree in microbiology - had a hand in the original screenplay for the Hollywood hit Underworld. He is also easily recognisable as one of the werewolves in the prequel Underworld: Rise of the Lycans. In addition to his on-screen talents, Kevin also brings his knowledge of science to the Underworld movies, in which he based the afflictions of vampires and werewolves on a viral mutagen rather than the mysticism associated with these creatures.

In Discovery Channel's MONSTER TRACKER, Kevin's quest to construct a flying, fire-breathing dragon takes him to the high-security labs of elite engineers and deep into the bush with primate biologists. To put the pieces together, Kevin journeys across the United States and to Indonesia to gain inspiration and knowledge from the very real animal oddities that exist today, such as the surprisingly swift Komodo dragon with its toxic bite, the Bombardier beetle that blasts its enemies with a scalding, toxic fluid; and the jungle-gliding Draco - a four-legged winged lizard. Each of these unique animals will provide valuable clues that determine a dragon's physiology, and how it could exhale fire and soar above our skies.

Through a variety of hands-on experiments with experts, Kevin re-imagines history's monsters through the uncompromising lens of science. He researches the chemical and anatomical components needed to not only create fire but project it. Watch Kevin take flight himself as he researches the mechanics of flight and explores the world of the Pterosaur - the earliest vertebrates known to have evolved powered flight.
