        Movies, I’m not sure. Shows I can do more of. Jack Hannas wildlife show, Corwin has a few different shows. Kratts Creatures.

        On YouTube there is a guy that goes by Coyote Peterson and his channel is Breaking Wilderness. He would be very similar to Corwin and a bit like Irwin. He caught and let each of the top 5 or 7 of the pain index scale of stings/bites for the show. He doesn’t cuss.
