    great show. Keeping exotics is a fascinating hobby. I have 2 beardies, 1 corn snake, 3 scorpions and 96 tarantulas in my viv room. I am breeding the tarantulas for other keepers. Great for conservation of species as man is rapidly destroying rainforest areas and the homes of many species. Keeping dangerous species however, should only be done by experts.

    This program is ace! Apart from a couple of the men (esp the one that let his snake escape) giving snakes a bad rep, its a really good insight in to having a reptile as a pet. Also the guy with the monitor lizard hector is fab!!!

    yoga lady what full of crap... Nothing else scares me apart from snakes, i'm happy with my life as itis so i don't know what she's talking about"if i'm scared of snakes i'm scared of my inner spirit" It's healthy to fear snakes i think, and i don't want to get over my phobia.

    No genius.

    Is he so oblivious to think he is the first one to think he's the first person ever to come up with that?

    What zoo is it that dumps its unwanted animals as fecklessly as some chav leaving kittens in a box outside the RSPCA? Just to make room for more stock? So some man who admits he is financially over-stretched and seems emotionally overwhelmed too can take on the zoo's unwanted animals....

    The Snake Box thing is stupid, is he going to carry them around when they are ten foot? I hate people using snakes as toys and status symbols. I do not understand why people buy burms when they are young and act like they are not going to grow. The Yoga woman was a fool. Think its cool of channel five to allow people to comment.
