Review

Does Gary, who keeps 36 snakes in the spare bedroom of his terraced house in Derby, prefer dangerous animals to people? Yes, he tells Ross Kemp in the second of two startling documentaries about exotic pets. “They don’t answer back. Well, they do. They bite you.” Kemp uses his underrated comic timing to good effect as Gary struggles to keep the lid on a box containing a reticulated python, then takes a potentially lethal lizard for a walk. There’s nothing funny, however, about a zoo in west Wales that was bought by a nature-loving couple who are now desperately trying to rehome distressed animals. 

We’re back to the alarming eccentrics soon enough. Whatever weird plans you might predict Cambridgeshire farmer Andy has for his crocodile house… they’re weirder.
