All television shows are set-up to some degree...Steve's show is no different....I looked into it and found out that he sets up some reptile shots to save time and money but from what I read he is a well respected and educated herpetologist.....he is goofy though with the hots..he must have quite an entourage of doctors and a trailer of antivenin..lol

Yeah, thats what I was thinking. Probably all these guys have anti-venin with them for whatever snake they are messing with.

I was watching this one guy one time (dont remember who) and he got bitten by a cobra and probably the only reason he didnt get himself into serious trouble was because he had anti-venin in his trailer a hundred feet away. The drive to the hospital was more than two hours away if I remember correctly.

Steve Irwin is HORRIBLE. If you guys haven't watched his movements and how he catches his animals. When he catches snakes he holds them by their tail. THEIR TAIL! If you hold a snake like that, specially heavier ones, it seperates their vertabrae and it can even eternally cripple them. They way he handles animals it obtrosive. Personally I think Jeff Corwin is the best.

first off all the "steve erwin rocks", sucks or whatever without another comment on your veiws really needs to stop. secondly the bans on reptiles BW speaks of are real and imanant if we dont act I have tryed and still do I formed the KRRC Keepers for Responceable Reptile Care I have nagged at pet shops about their care and as much as I try I have only found one pet shop out of 10 or so in my area worthy of keeping these animals. being 15 it is tough for me to go everware preaching about my choosen pets one time in a math class I'm in we were doing persents and we did a poll to pass as pets" out of 20 or so people I think 5 said no. wile this might not represnt a large number of people I think or, I wouldent be supprised to find that a state or nation wide poll would look painfully simmalar. at this point I'm out of ideas about what I can do intill I can get I car I cant get out to do educational programs and b*cthing at the pet stores only gets me out of breath and wastes time store managers would most likely spend on the mammals anyways..

P.S. sorry it was off topic to some extent. and please excuse the spelling.

Sorry, but being 15, you need someone older and more experienced as a "front man" if you want to gain credibility. preferably someone with credentials.

I hate to be the bearer of bad tidings, but age does matter when it comes to things like this. Online, you have anonymity. In real life you don't. People are not likely to listen to someone that young, no matter how much kowledge they have. It is just the way of the world and I was offerring a suggestion based on REALITY. Right or wrong, it is the way the world works. I still have issues soemtimes just because I LOOK young.

I so agree with that.

If you are trying to run an education program, a rescue of anything like that, you will need an older front man like BWSmith said.

My you are defensive about your age. Hey, it is the way of the world. Appearance is actually important to get results unless youare already established and well known, particularly when you are dealing with strangers. We were all young once and it took along time for me to get credibility. Chill out and quit taking it personal. hate the world, not the messenger.
