    This is what life in Florida is like. We have alligators in our back yards. There was a panther in the forest by my elementary school. We visit the Everglades as a field trip for school, like once a year. They have a festival. Literally, it's called Everglades Day and everyone just goes into the Everglades and walks around the marshes. Iguanas and snakes and other fun guys are just a fact of life. (Pretty sure we're the Australia of America if that makes sense.)

    wow, he found that Tegu exactly where he put it. what are the chances of that? that is a captive raised animal, cooled so it will stay put. if it was wild, it would be chewed up and shitting all over him. BS just like the gila monster he "found".

    The lizard when he first picked it up was like "Oh one o these guys, I always wanted to be on tv." And then he says,"Now it pains me to say it but I cannot release this animal back into the wild, this lizard is going to a research facility" and that lizards like "Wait what the f*ck?" He opened his mouth like "F*ck you ho!"

    People seem really irresponsible with these animals thinking it's a good idea to release them into a non native habitat , people in the state shouldn't even own them if that's what they're doing

    • Jonnyapple
      Jonnyapple 24 days ago

      FishingMaster Studios sometimes, it's people that think it's cool to own a lizard like this but then get bored or can't pay to feed it so they release it. And yes, I do realize he said this in the video. He said this as I typed this😅

    in my opinion, an invasive species is nature running its course. just let nature be and deal with itself in its own way. just because humans dont like something doesnt mean its wrong
