Nat Geo Wild Broadcast

Postby swazi » Mon Nov 10, 2008 8:41 am

Hi Thea

I hope the family and you are keeping well.

I will be in the Kruger National Park tomorrow 10 November 2008. There is a live Safari broadcast which can be seen on channel 261 Nat Geo Wild. The broadcast starts from 16h00 so if you are bored and sitting in front of the TV you may want to watch.I will have some snakes there and will be speaking about snakes & snakebite...please can you pass the word around on the forums? I will appreciate some feedback.

Best regards


Mike Perry,
African Reptiles & Venom,

Mike wrote "I will be interviewed by the host Andy, about venomous snakes found in the Kruger Park, so I will be speaking about snakes, snakebite, and perhaps dispel a few myths as well as show a few snakes. I am scheduled to be on air from 17h00 our time on Monday 10 November 2008."

This is on channel 261, 16H00, Safari Live.

Cool. I watched yesterday about a male leopard. Really nice idea if they can keep the signal.

Thanks, can't wait to see the old cool cat doing his thing.

Did anyone see DOCTOR Brady wetting himself in an aardvark hole when he met up with a Snouted cobra? Can’t say I blame him but he did make a bit of an ass of himself when he started screaming like a girl. Haven’t laughed that long and hard for a long time.

LOL... Brady Barr always screems like a girl and makes a big scene. Suppose thats show business for ya!?? Still good viewing though.

Always laugh at how he pronounces Afrikaans names ... Haanes BOWTHA (Hannes Botha)

Looking forward to seeing Mike's show, and looking even more forward to hes handling course on the 22nd!

Ha Ha, Brady Barr is a wally.
Lol, I watch his shows sometimes for only two reasons, to see the cool reptiles, and to watch the "expert" get bitten and scream like a little girl... lol.
I catch myself saying things like, "yes, here it comes..." and "Yes!!! Go Retic!!!"

Well I wasn't too impressed.
That stupid American with Mike could hardly remember the word Rinkals.
However the info Mike gave was very good, although handling all the snakes with tongs??
Then the American has to try spice up the act as well.
It was like watching a soapy on Nat Geo.

Im pretty sure, that that "american" as you say was actually a local south African btw.

Yeah he was a bit of a fool tho.

Whats wrong with handling all the snakes with tongs???? It is by far the safest method, for both the snake and handler.

I suppose it's personal preference.
I would use tongs to get the snakes out of their containers etc.
But while they are on the ground, a hook works perfectly fine and I'm sure Mike of all people has all the expereince needed to use a hook rather than tongs.

Yes Of course he does, but have you ever thought his personal preference is to use tongs instead of a hook..

If I recall correctly as I only caught glimpses of the programme, he used tongs for the rinkhals and mozy, he hooked the snoutie and the puffy... Maybe there was a reason for that...I'll ask him next time I see him.:)

If you could I would be greatful.
He used tongs to get the snoutie out if I'm not mistakened.
I didn't see the Puffy, but suppose tongs on a puffy could hurt the sanke.
I had someone recording the whole thing so going to edit out the boring bits in between.
