Turtle v. Snake
Travis Thomas is a rookie turtle researcher in Florida. He was on the verge of publishing his first big paper and naming two new species of turtle when he found out heâ€™d been scooped by a stranger in Australia: Raymond Hoser, a.k.a. the Snake Man. Raymond is a reptile wrangler and amateur herpetologist whoâ€™s managed to name hundreds of animalsâ€”and has made a lot of enemies in the process. In this episode of Undiscovered, Travis sets out to get his turtles back, and Annie and Elah set out to find out how and why the Snake Man does what he does. Â Guests Travis Thomas, PhD student, University of Florida, Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences Robert Sprackland, herpetologist, visiting researcher at the Smithsonian Institution Raymond Hoser, founder of the Australasian Journal of Herpetology, owner of Snakebusters Â Footnotes Read Travis Thomas et al.â€™s 2014 paper splitting alligator snapping turtles into three species,Â Raymond Hoser's 2013 paper,Â Raymond'sÂ response to Thomas et al.

Check out Raymondâ€™s website where he responds to his critics, lists the animal taxa (species, genera, etc.) heâ€™s named, and posts the Australasian Journal of Herpetology.
