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.

Although you get the feeling some of the animals were planted...in 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.

Its too bad this show has been cancelled. I use to be able to catch it on Animal planet at least once or twice a week. This guy is awesome! He tells us stuff like this, (Please never do what I do) or that's what somebody says at the end of the show.
Austin Stevens travels all over the world, to Australia, Egypt, India, South America, North America, to find the largest most powerful constricting snakes, or the most venomous snakes. He handles stuff like rattle snakes, King Cobras, Boa constrictors, Pythons, tree snakes, & the largest ones anywhere, the Anaconda!
I've never seen anyone who'll go underground where the snakes are sleeping where there's over a hundred rattle snakes, to get better look. He's quick to pull his hand away & knows when the snakes get irritated & are about to strike.
He will dive right into action, No thought for his own safety. He's what you call a very experienced snake handler, & a professional photographer. As most people would be crazy to stare a snake in the face at only a foot or so away from it to get a picture. Austin must rely on his quick, thinking, quick movements & quick judgment. That is what he uses for his own protection.
He is what I'd call very, very Smart! Even the biggest anaconda snake in the world fails to squeeze the life out of this guy the snake master.
I love the show because I know if I ever encounter one of these snakes that he's had to handle, I understand not to mess with them! I'll make at least one vow to the snake, walk away & forget I ever saw it.

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.

I bought this for my son. He has ten pet snakes. This was a cool video even my mom and I enjoyed watching it. I don't know how this guy lived to the end of the dvd! He had some close calls! If you like snakes this is a fun video to watch.

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.

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.

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!! [..]
