This guy has (well, had) wayyyy to much free time.

I was trying to find a video on youtube about huge snakes living in Florida and I found this. Watch this nut go after huge snakes and alligators in the water and bare handed.

Turns out he also helped with some Tazan movies and was really good at extracting venom from poisonous snakes.  (Somehow, he managed to die of natural causes in the 80's.)
