Sharkageddon on Thursday night on the Discovery Channel will explore what’s happening in Hawaii.

“Massive tiger sharks and other predatory species are invading the shores of Hawaii. After a spike in attacks including two fatalities, Hawaiian native and surf legend Kala Alexander sets out to uncover the truth behind what’s disrupting the Hawaiian food chain,” according to the network.

The one-hour program starts at 10 p.m. EDT.

It’s part of Discovery’s Shark Week.

“Collin Drake returns to share new details of his case and present the shocking new evidence of the existence of Megalodon, an enormous prehistoric shark that could still be roaming the oceans,” it says in the description for Megalodon: The New Evidence, airing at 10 p.m. EDT.

Saturday will feature a program about great white shark bites and another program about the most insane bites, strikes, and close calls from the 2014 Shark Week.
