Congratulations to Turtleman:
There's no rest for the wickedly loveable…Deep within the Kentucky backwoods, Ernie Brown Jr., aka 'Turtleman,' worked hard this Labor Day weekend, ending his CALL OF THE WILDMAN season with a huge, live-action snap, helping Animal Planet achieve its best-ever Labor Day Weekend ever!
Animal Planet has picked up a second season of 20 new half-hour episodes for 2013.
"Yi yi yi yi, come git some!" said 'Turtleman' Ernie Brown, Jr., in reaction to the renewal of his series.
CALL OF THE WILDMAN features the bare-handed, backwoods animal-trapping skills of "Turtleman" Ernie Brown, Jr. For the past three decades, Turtleman has been diving into Kentucky's murkiest ponds in search of feisty snapping turtles, capable of biting through bone. No job is too tough or dangerous for Turtleman, and his years of bonding with wild animals allow him to use his animal instincts to save them.
