What's the story?

FEARLESS ADVENTURES WITH JACK RANDALL is a docuseries featuring former Steve Irwin apprentice Jack Randall as he teaches people about wildlife. Each short episode features the zoologist as he searches for, observes, and catches various animals and reptiles. Throughout the process, he offers lots of information, often with the help of other animal experts. From observing large saltwater crocodiles from the safety of a tank to rescuing a baby kangaroo, Randall does what he has to do to get as close as he can to each animal. 

Is it any good?

This upbeat series features the British zoologist traveling around Australia looking for snakes, crocodiles, turtles, and other creatures to showcase. But each roughly four-minute episode is also designed to demystify many "scary" animals, in hopes of encouraging people to be more curious than scared, and to appreciate these creatures' beauty and place in the wild. 

Randall, much like his late mentor, has a larger-than-life personality that makes everything he says and does entertaining. But some of his bold antics, which includes grabbing snakes from underneath rocks and handling big spiders, sometimes feel invasive. They could also inspire some untrained animal lovers to follow suit. But if you can get past this, Fearless Adventures with Jack Randall offers lots of fascinating animal details.
