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.
