I missed the local showing of this program in english:wall: . Does anyone have this program? Tarantula hunter in Australia, local delicacy in Cambodia, new species categorized and venom attraction. Very interesting stuff. I got a copy in German on the internet.

It's been on Animal Planet twice in the last year, and I'm sure it will be again. Keep an eye on local listings. :)

Rights to Show

The rights to the show are not owned by the networks. I was told that that exclusive rights are owned by the production company. They loan the show to the networks to show. If you are interested, email gisela@kaufmannproductions.com

There is no real website just the email address.

They only do animal documentaries and have received lots of awards.
