Out There with Jack Randall

BBC Wildlife Magazine - - Our Wild World - AM

MON­DAYS UN­TIL 21 OC­TO­BER, NA­TIONAL GEO­GRAPHIC WILD Join zo­ol­o­gist Jack on his mis­sion across Aus­tralia, as he goes in search of snakes, kan­ga­roos and croc­o­diles – and that’s just for starters. En­coun­ter­ing a va­ri­ety of other crea­tures along the way, Jack’s en­thu­si­asm and ex­cite­ment at each dis­cov­ery, large or small, is in­fec­tious, as he ex­plains a bit about the bi­ol­ogy and be­hav­iour of his lat­est find. Though, at times, his zeal­ous be­hav­iour does seem to baf­fle some of his com­pan­ions: “I think you’re crazy,” says python ex­pert Gavin Bed­ford, as Jack takes off his boots so that he’s able to feel for the rep­tiles with his feet as the duo wade through water.

Jack en­coun­ters a wal­la­roo in Litch­field Na­tional Park.
