The Lizard King World Tour (of sorts)

Monday, December 7th, 2009

I’m hearing from people that my “hot show” interview is being aired around the globe  (yesterday New Zealand) so I’m putting it up again (and deeper on the site). 

By coincidence, I was just at the Hamburg Reptile Show this weekend.  Instead of a mamba, I picked up one of those rattlesnake coffee mugs Craig Ferguson has on his show only mine has a rattlesnake inside it, too.  A great idea at the time, but it turns out whatever you drink in the rattlesnake mug stays in the rattlesnake mug.

My Venomous Visit with Fox News

Monday, November 2nd, 2009

I took Fox News’ Claudia Gomez to the venomous reptile show in Hamburg, PA last spring.  Somebody just sent me a link to the program.  Cool!  And, here’s the national Fox news report that ran along with it.  I should say, Hot!

My Fox Philly Hits Hamburg (airs May 4)

Monday, April 27th, 2009

On Saturday I had a chance to spend the day with Fox News’ Claudia Gomez at the Northern Berks Reptile Show in Hamburg, Pennsylvania.   Hamburg is a hot show, one of few left in the United States where dealers sell venomous reptiles along with standard fare.  We had a lot of fun and got good footage of animals and dealers, and Claudia got to talk to the founder of the website NO HR 669, a key effort to block the recent house bill outlawing not only potential invasive species but also many of the most common animals in the pet world.  I had a chance to sign some books at Larry Kenton’s table.

 

Claudia was pretty up front with me that she didn’t intend to hold any big pythons during her visit (she gave that task to me :-)), but the next thing I knew I turned around and found Claudia holding an alligator.  Crikey!    Claudia’s report airs Monday, May 4 on Fox 29.
