About the Show

Dr. Brady Barr’s Dangerous Encounters have taken him around the globe to get up close and hands-on with almost every imaginable exotic creature. Now Brady is out to find America’s very own backyard beasts. His journeys will lead him to prehistoric creatures like the giant alligator snapping turtle in Louisiana, American titans like the raging bull in Kansas and the lethal javelina that attacks pets in Arizona. You may not know it, but these are the creatures that could live near you!

Behind the Scenes

    Brady’s Epic Giant Python Encounter

    The cave was literally a chamber of horrors filled with scorpions, roaches, maggots, spiders, millions of bats, lizards, and snakes, but it was the chest-deep, liquefied bat guano quicksand that made it unbearable for Brady. That was only the beginning of what would turn out to be the baddest bite of his life.
