Special episode[edit]

"Venom in Vegas"

In this episode of Wild Recon, Donald Schultz lives in a clear box full of snakes for ten days. Schultz starts with 50 snakes, and is continuously introduced to more at a pace of 5 per day. Schultz is acquainted with species such as black mambas, rattlesnakes, and puff adders. Appropriate precautions were taken so that in the event that Schultz was bitten, medics would be on the scene instantly. During the ten days he is rooming with snakes, Donald extracts samples to learn more about the species. He claims his mission is to show people that humans can live along with snakes, regardless of whether they are venomous or not.


On the episode "Bitten" Donald is injected by a type of tree snake and his arm begins to swell, but he makes it on, and gets DNA samples from the elusive platypus.
