The Legacy of Heorot - Larry Niven

A group of settlers on a planet include a lot of your smart scientific types. There is, however, one of your hard nosed, pragmatic security and military experts. He is not happy with how everything is set up.

Cue horror movie plot. Animals are eaten/disappear and Beowulfesque monsters roam, although they are just the local lifeforms, with their rather odd breeding cycles. Reminiscent of Heinlein's Stobor of course.

This is really pretty ordinary.
