TV Show

Hey how many of you guys have checked out "The Snake Wranglers" on National Geographic channel?

I think its an awesome show. Always really interesting things being done by all sort of different experts interested in a variety of different things but all based on snakes. Some interested in size of certain populations, some interested in searching for certain species, the one I am watching right now has them looking for DNA samples from rare species to use for learning more about how snakes evolved from lizards. So its always a diferent topic on different snakes.

Anyone else watch this? I think its one of the top shows when it comes to betraying snakes properly and giving out good information in the episodes I have seen. (around 5-6)

Glad to see that at least some shows are actually giving some sort of educational value when it comes to snakes. I was flipping through the channels last night and happened upon a show about snakes. Was some guy from Australia talking about the different species in Australia. I still have allot to learn about snakes and never claim to be an expert but this guy was a moron. He was housing 2 adult pythons in the same enclosure and feeding them in the same enclosure at the same time. They attacked each other because of it. Then the moron was like, "Oh there just confused, they each think the other one is the rat because of the movement, they will realize they made a mistake and let go of each other momentarily............" Dude just sits there for what seemed like a good 10 mins while they went at it, then he decides he should yank them apart, and I don't mean by placing them in water I mean by uncoiling them from each other and yanking their jaws off each other. I mean come-on, I've only been into herping for about 2 months now and even I know not to house 2 adult pythons together unless you’re trying to breed them and to try and feed them both at the same time while they are both in the same enclosure, just seemed really stupid to me.
