Out There With Jack Randall: Series 1
At just 14 years old, when most boys his age would probably rather be riding bikes and playing video games, Jack Randall left his home in England to become an apprentice to “The Crocodile Hunter” Steve Irwin, learning to handle snakes and other reptiles. Today, Randall continues his research into exotic, endangered and iconic animal species by venturing into some of the most unforgiving environments on the planet.
Part 1: Hunting the Ghost Serpent
Zoologist Jack Randall journeys into Australia’s remote Northern Territory to encounter six dangerous pythons, including the rare Oenpelli. Along the way, Jack dives into crocodile-infested swamps, reaches into giant lizard burrows, dodges the bite of a deadly venomous snake and crawls into cramped, dark caves to find these elusive predators.
Part 2: The Kangaroo Mob
Wildlife zoologist Jack Randall journeys deep into the Australian outback to fulfill his lifelong dream of being accepted into a “mob” of wild kangaroos. Along the way, Jack snatches up snakes, lunges after lizards, defends against dangerous dingoes and even rescues an orphaned baby kangaroo.
Part 3: Battle of the Crocs
Jack Randall travels into Australia’s untamed Northern Territory to the battle between two species of deadly crocodiles where the massive saltwater crocs are overrunning their smaller freshwater cousins. Jack helps local experts and scientists catch and track these living dinosaurs in the hopes of maintaining nature’s balance.
Part 4: The Most Venomous Snakes in the World
Jack Randall explores Australia’s remote Cape York peninsula to confront five of the most venomous snakes in the world, including the elusive Coastal Taipan. Along the way, Jack encounters huge pythons and terrifying tarantulas and joins forces with a local wildlife legend to determine which is the deadliest snake “down under.”
Part 5: Chasing Giants
Fearless wildlife zoologist Jack Randall dives head first into a marine mystery: are majestic green sea turtles adapting to the devastating conditions of Australia’s dying Great Barrier Reef? While joining forces with a dedicated team of daring scientists, Jack dodges bull rays, snatches nurse sharks and wrangles dugongs.
Part 6: Wild Camel Chase
Australia’s Red Center region has a big problem – countless horses and camels have been neglected in the wild and now face death due to drought. Wildlife zoologist Jack Randall is teaming up with local animal wranglers to rescue as many of these animals as possible and to prove they can help people thrive in this unforgiving, desolate environment.
