The only animals I'm not comfortable with are parrots but I'm learning as I go. I'm getting better and better at 'em. I really am.
You know I'm Australian and we have got the worst sense of humor. We are cruel to each other.
You know you can touch a stick of dynamite but if you touch a venomous snake it'll turn around and bite you and kill you so fast it's not even funny.
That might have a lot to do with it but you know I probably don't show fear but I suffer from fear like everyone else.
So fear helps me from making mistakes but I make lot of mistakes.
I have no fear of losing my life - if I have to save a koala or a crocodile or a kangaroo or a snake mate I will save it.
Yeah I'm a thrill seeker but crikey education's the most important thing.
I believe that education is all about being excited about something. Seeing passion and enthusiasm helps push an educational message.
There's a lot of research behind the scenes that you don't get to see but I have an instinct that my dad nurtured from when I was born. I was very lucky then.
Since I was a boy from this house I was out rescuing crocodiles and snakes. My mum and dad were very passionate about that and I was lucky enough to go along.
My dad taught me from my youngest childhood memories through these connections with Aboriginal and tribal people that you must always protect people's sacred status regardless of the pest.
The first crocodile I ever caught was at nine years of age and it was a rescue.
