I've heard that before of other animal show people (Kratt Bros, Jeff Corwin). Who know's if it's true, and who cares. He's not making the show to show how to get a bite, but to show us how beautiful animals are. And also to teach us about them. If he does do that I wouldn't blame him!! Some of those snakes pack a punch!! And no I have never heard of that bushman guy.
