1 x 60 The Smithsonian Channel

Premiered: July 8, 2014 | Directed & Written by: Brian Armstrong

From the black bear of the Blue Ridge Mountains in the east, to the blood-sucking lamprey in the mud of the mighty Mississippi to the west – this is Turtleman’s Kentucky from top to tail – and more wild than you ever imagined. Turtleman’s “Call of the Wildman” audience will revel in a new take on the Wildman’s home state – as will the tried-and-true lovers of high-end nature films. Each act features a major blue-chip animal drama. All are linked by Turtleman’s personal connection to his beloved state and a vivid east-to-west journey.
