Monsters Inside Me is a documentary series that airs on Animal Planet. Monsters Inside Me shows what happens when parasites and microscopic bugs enter a human being and decide to live with the human as their host. When a parasite enters the human body it usually causes a bad infection, resulting in the infected human suffering a horrible illness that can be next to impossible to cure. There are many different types of parasites out there and each episode of Monsters Inside Me concentrates on a specific parasite and what the resulting harm was to the human being that it affected. The series shows graphic and disturbing pictures of the parasites and brings on scientists and other experts to discuss the life cycle and habitats of these gruesome creatures. The people on the show range from old to young. There are even episodes where children are shown and discussed getting sick so this television series is definitely not for the faint of heart. The show covers common parasites like the bedbug and hookworm but it also introduces the viewer to species that they may not of heard of, like the cat poop parasite or the brain eating parasite. Parasites can do frightening things to the human body and the show introduces viewers to infections that are extremely rare. The African sleeping sickness is one such infection that leads to extreme fatigue. There is also the screwworm infection which will tear a giant hole into a person's flesh. Monsters Inside Me is scientifically based and delivers a lot of new information on virtually unheard of parasites.
