When Sherlock overhears a that a swamp monster has been sighted, he gathers his team to investigate.

But then, loud bellowing leads Bones and team to the mangroves, where they find a horrifying long-haired green beast! Can they escape the creature-or is it too late for our beloved frogmouth bird skeleton and his ragtag mystery-solving team?
