I have heard the criticism that Steve and Jeff stage stuff. I would say that it's just that kind of show. It's not a show about field research it's about just showing the animal and learning a bit about it. I don't expect them to find a wild animal for the show, if they have to stage finding the animal so that we can see what it looks like and where and how it lives that's fine with me. It doesn't take anything away in my eyes.
No one I've seen can handle snakes and anticipate their moves the way Steve does. Who else free handles a 10 foot, angry black mamba?
I feel a little light headed... maybe you should drive...
