  1. Just finished up this episode. It was great and so was the guest. Ty and have a great weekend! ❤

  2. This is such episode, I have a massive love and respect for wild life and conservationists. Thanks to Frank for sharing his experiences and expertise. Never underestimate an animal – and don't do anything stupid.

  3. I don't live near Alligators but I'm very aware of them when I'm in their territory. Conservation of any animal is a must. Thank you, John, for bringing Frank on to share his experiences. Also, your prep work is beyond amazing.

    Wonderful guest…he really breaks the stereotype of the hillbilly gator wrestler that we normally see in media…he seems like a true man of science and a really great human! Thank you Frank and John for exposing me to my new favorite word…”Crocodillian”! Reminds me of Peter Pan and the crocodile that never forgot Captain Hook!” 🐊🐊🐊

    Living in a mountain town, you need to know what to look for, laws of the land and what to do when you come across wildlife while out in their territory. because you WILL come across it!!

    Wildlife conservation is more important than ever! With Deforestation, Ocean pollution and climate change we are losing our wild kingdom at a rapid pace. Thank you Frank and John for having this conversation ❣️
