Dr Bryan Greig Fry - Venom Doc

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 3:07 pm on 14 September 2015

Bryan Grieg Fry loves his job, even thought he has broken 23 bones, been bitten by stingrays, a scorpion and 26 snakes, including a death adder. It's all part of the job when your job is studying venomous animals. Dr Fry, known as the Venom Doc, believes snake bites may hold the key to medical breakthroughs. He describes himself as David Attenborough on acid. He's written a new book about his adventures and his passion for helping the creatures that have almost killed him: Venom Doc: The edgiest, darkest and strangest natural history memoir ever.
