Editorial Reviews

Reptile expert Dr. Brady Barr has spent his entire career studying some of the world's most amazing and deadliest animals. In the hit series, Dangerous Encounters, Barr's goal is to study these dangerous creatures in their natural environment before their habitat is destroyed so that he can better understand what they need to survive in the wild. Best of Dangerous Encounters features Brady's most dangerous encounters with some of the planet's most unapproachable animals including his headline-making bite from a 12 foot reticulated python. Includes 4 full programs: Snake Bite, Dens of Danger, Bite Force and Undercover Hippo.

Format: DVD
- The picture is beautiful and sharp.

- The narrator actively interacted with the animals. He's just not passively filming them. For example, in Snake Bite episode, he entered one of the caves in rain-forest jungle of Indonesia to catch the giant pythons. He waded in bat-dung mud that was hip high. The scene where one of the snakes took a big bite out of his thigh is terrifying.

- The DVD shows some of the species I've never seen before like the almost-extinct crocodiles of China.

- The film poses an interesting question "Which living animal has the strongest bite?" The methods used and the journeys taken by Brady to answer this questions are both exciting and suspenseful.

- In short, this 2-discs DVD set is worth every penny. I own it.

Folks, this is a hidden gem of comedy history. Ready made for a SNL skit with Will Ferrell as the overconfident but actually cowardly "expert", this episode of Brady Barr being bit by a "big python, big python" will have you laughing so hard you will cry. From the beginning of the episode where he tries to measure the largest python in captivity and gets in over his head to the climax where he is bitten in the cave even though he is pushing his partner toward the snake, you will keep asking yourself "Is this for real? Can anyone be this clueless?" It's like an old cartoon episode of Hong Kong Phooey where the sidekick always saves the day and HKP thinks he's the hero. Don't miss this as it truly should be a part of the comedy canon. Aieeeeeghhhhh!!!

This is a really great movie on snakes and Dr. Brady Barr's exploits in the field and his research. If reptiles are what you like and you enjoy National Geographic then this is the movie for you!

My 4 year old son loves snakes so when I was searching for a dvd to get for him to watch, I let him look at various dvd covers on Amazon. One that he really liked for me to get for him was Best of Dangerous Encounters with Brady Barr. One episode that my son really likes is called "Snake Bite" and it involves Brady getting bitten by a python and he has to go get stiches as a result. It's amazing to watch and see and it shows how dangerous these creatures can be. My son really enjoyed watching it and I would recommend getting this dvd just for the episode called "Snake Bite," especially if you want to develop a healthy respect for the "man eating python," as my son calls it. A truly enjoyable and entertaining dvd that is sure to entertain the snake lover in your family!

Although Brady is a bit eccentric at time the show is great for nature and animal lovers, especially if you like reptiles like Crocs. I enjoy his travels and seeing his antics. This guy has some ba**s if you know what I mean. If you can put on a hippo suit and walk next to live hippos for research your nuts. He does this because he loves the wildlife and a lot of his show has to do with preservation and education regarding venom and species etc. Great show comparable to River Monsters with Jeremy Wade on Discovery .Wish they brought this show back for a new season.
