5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Snake Documentary . . . and Art December 16, 2005
By Lee
One is lucky to meet, perhaps, five people at the most in one's lifetime who are TRULY passionate about their work, whose life IS their work. Such is the case of Mr. Austin Stevens and his passion for snakes. And it is this passion that is self-evident in his Snakemaster series, THE captivating spirit for the viewer.

This DVD contains three episodes of the entire Snakemaster season produced by Animal Planet, each documenting a buildup of Mr. Stevens' captures of snakes or reptiles in their native habitat, climaxing at the end with the capture of the biggest and "baddest" snake/reptile. For Borneo, it is a 20ft.+ Reticulated Python, a snake capable of eating an adult human being without any problem, in Australia's desert it is the giant Perentie lizard, and in the Florida Panhandle it is an 8ft. long Eastern Diamondback rattlesnake. Mr. Stevens has the innate talent to "take" us, the viewer, with him on his adventurous journey as if we were right there with him. Right in our living room, he takes us to places that 98% of us will never have the opportunity to visit, a marvelous gift to us on his part. Breathtakingly filmed, beautifully scored (a la John Barry), and wonderfully narrated -- yes, Mr. Stevens is a superb storyteller -- this DVD is not only an excellent snake documentary, but a superb work of cinematographic art! I only hope that Animal Planet will release the entire Snakemaster series on DVD very, very soon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Movie July 31, 2012
Verified Purchase
This s a really good movie. If you like reptiles and giant snakes in particular, then this movie is a must have. It follows the Snakeman on his trip to find the largest constrictors on the planet and other than a few cheesy parts, it's very informative and has awesome camera shots of his dealings with South America's many types of reptiles.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Reptile DVD January 15, 2007
If you or your children like reptiles, this is a great show. Although some scenes are somewhat dramatic, it's very entertaining and best of all, the camerawork, scenery and narration are all top notch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent DVD!! March 13, 2007
Perfect quality, excellent DVD, just what I was expecting. Although I wish he would hurry up and put out more DVD's! Does anyone know if he has or not? I caught the episode where he wrestles an anaconda on cable TV and have been looking for it all over the net and on DVD but have been unsuccessful!! Any ideas?? I would also like to try get my hands on the episodes where it shows him getting bitten by a Cobra and had to go to hospital as well as getting bitten by some other deadly snake but lives to tell the tale! If anyone knows where I can find more Austin Stevens stuff please let me know!! [..]

4.0 out of 5 stars impressive May 3, 2014
Verified Purchase
Although you get the feeling some of the animals were order to be 'discovered' later. Would you wrestle with a python? People like this guy who do this (& badger dangerous animals in general) are begging for trouble. Fascinating to see, though. Can't deny that.
Who was the guy who got stung by the stingray & died? Steve Irwin? That's what I'm talking about.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exciting.....and yes, touching. May 22, 2013
Verified Purchase
Austin Stevens is provides a wild romp with a few truly touching moments. His love of creatures that most human beings are afraid of, or tolerate at best, shines through! For example.....he picked ticks off of a snake. My husband, 13yr old son and I all love him.
