Many of us in the reptile world are familiar with the name Jim Harrison, along with his wife Kristen Wiley as they make up part of the team behind the Kentucky Reptile Zoo. One of the most respected names in the world of venom collection and herpetological knowledge, I can personally watch him do venom extractions all day long with nothing but admiration for one of the most adept handlers of venomous snakes on par with the likes of the legendary Bill Haast o...Read Full Post »

Not to age myself too much, but as a kid I distinctly remember running home at certain times or waking up early on a Sunday morning to catch Sir David Attenborough, Jacques Cousteau and Marty Stouffer on PBS in their latest adventures and discoveries of the natural world.

Blake Shelton has historically made an ass of himself via his Tweets on numerous occasions going so far as to infuriate even the Gay & Lesbian Community which most people know, you just don't mess with. Hell hath no fury as a dragqueeen scorned.
