Question: what has six rows of razor-sharp teeth and is able to swallow a human beingâ€¦whole? Answer: the monster-sized African rock python. Question: who would risk their life to get close to one of these deadly reptiles all for the sake of a great picture? Answer: Austin Stevens. Premiering with six all-new episodes, exclusively on Travel + Escape, Gemini Award-winning series AUSTIN STEVENS ADVENTURES delivers heart-stopping adventures and deadly encounters from around the globe beginning Thursday, Nov. 12 at 8 p.m. ET/9 p.m. PT.
Travelling from the ancient reservoirs in Minneriya, Sri Lanka, in search of Asian elephants; and Western Canada’s Great Bear Rainforest in hopes of a dangerously close encounter; to the plains of Zambia, Africa, for a chance to snap the gapping jaws of a killer hippo, distinguished photographer, wildlife thrill-seeker and legendary snakemaster, Austin Stevens embarks on one of his most challenging adventures to date.
Each mission sees Stevens search out the deadliest, rarest and most venomous beasts in some of the most inhospitable locales on Earth, stopping at nothing to get close enough for the perfect photo. To survive these missions, Stevens needs his instincts, his expertise and the age-old knowledge of local people. But will it be enough to guarantee his safety as he pushes his limits â€“ and his luck â€“ to get the ultimate close encounter?
