Animal Planet is following animal adventurer Donald Schultz as he travels the world seeking out venomous creatures in the name of science for the new series Wild Recon. The South African researcher has been handling dangerous creatures from the age of nine, and was the youngest person to give venomous snake demonstrations. Schultz, who previously appeared as an expert on the Animal Planet series I Was Bitten, collects venom and DNA in order to catalog species and, hopefully, save lives. Wild Recon is set to debut January 5.
