Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Fearless Adventures with Jack Randall is an informative series about different species of animals found in the Australian wild. The host, who used to work with the late Steve Irwin (aka the Crocodile Hunter), is an energetic professional zoologist who handles reptiles and other creatures with ease. Viewers of all ages are warned not to try the same activities at home.
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.
