Not trying to argue with anyone but when he said "I've never got this much venom from a animal" it was a viper(horned or eyelash) that he was milking not a monito. And the looking in the trees was to keep an eye out for Green Mambas he stated. He wasn't looking for Gaboons in trees. We all know the samples of venom are not really used but that being said how many outside the herp community would tune in for a hour of milking snakes in a lab. He opposes s373 and I've been in correspondence with him since the Mfezi days. I can't see lumping his shows in with the Python Wars and Monstercrap. He had a vet come check in on the snakes on Venom in Vegas and took time to give them a good soak in case the humidity was to low during the ten days.
It's just like when someone see's a pet of yours and asks what type. You say Coastal Carpet Python and the only part they hear is Python. Fully listening during the shows makes it clear he is lieing no more than Bear Grylls on Man vs. Wild. It's entertainment and considering the crap Nat Geo and History channel put out he's our best bet for a media outlet on our situation.
