“I believe the best way to share animals with the world is right from the natural environment."
"That is the most intense pain I’ve ever felt. Don’t think I can talk."
"If I were to just take a bullet ant and let it walk around on my arm or look at it in a glass capsule you’d have more people saying: ‘Ah, that was interesting, but it would have been a lot more interesting if you’d let it sting you’, because that at the end of the day is what people really want to see and we’re aware of that."
"How can we take this concept of being in the wild and instead of killing and eating the animals, how do we present them in the fashion that Steve Irwin and Jeff Corwin and Jack Hanna did?"
"This was not a good idea ladies and gentlemen."
"I love to do public appearances and will always travel to meet new people and conservation groups."
