The concept for this new wildlife expedition tv show was bold. Mark O’Shea, a famous herpetologist with extensive field experience, sets out to follow a series of quests – including finding the secretive, highly venomous and extremely endangered Atlantic coastal bushmaster, the threatened American crocodile, and the alligator snapping turtle, the largest freshwater turtle in the Americas.
Expedition tv show is the main-stay of Mark O’Shea official website. In total Mark has been fortunate enough to have participated in over 60 expeditions and film trips, to almost 40 countries, on six continents, since the early 1980s.
After two expedition tv series comprising twenty six half hour programmes taking Mark O’Shea as far afield as The Pilbara, Patagonia, and Papua New Guinea, our famous herpetologist Big Adventure’s was about to get a little bit bigger. Twice as big in fact, as Mark was invited to embark on a series of one hour O’Shea specials.
South and South East Asia was his hunting ground, and it was to be an area which stretched the programme making abilities of the O’Shea production team to their limits.

From the films for my expedition tv series, you have seen you will probably have realized I am a keen photographer of reptile and amphibian subjects. Every time I go overseas I try to identify and photograph every single species of herp I find, including males and females, juveniles and adults, differing, naturally-occurring, color morphs and even the same species in different geographical locations. This obsession goes back years before I was making television films for reptile tv show when I was carrying out fieldwork in the tropics for the Royal Geographical Society, Operation Raleigh or Oxford University’s Dept. of Clinical Medicine. I now have over 1,500 taxa (species and subspecies) of reptiles and amphibians as transparencies and digital images, and the website has given me the opportunity to display some of them to a wider audience.

The Youtube video below also provides an insight into Mark O’Shea’s career as a famous herpetologist, and why he considers further education an invaluable asset in attaining personal goals. It is never too late to learn, and never too late to consider going back into education.

During his expidition in Australlia, Mark O’Shea moved quite a lot throughout the continent. His work in University of Melbourne took 5 years of his professional life. During his stay, even though he was travelling all the time, he had to settle for a while so he found his permanent home in Brisbane. He made some of his most remarkable descoveries during that time.
