Have a go at these little beauties!

I've put together a compilation of some Big Hits we've captured on camera. Hits refers to bites, scrapes, belts, bashes, drops, punches, head butts, cuts, breaks, and smashes.

If you can imagine, these are just a percentage of the "all in the line of fire" type stuff I've encountered.

One thing to remember, I've put some of my injuries on this site to remind everyone that wrangling wildlife should be left to the professionals ONLY. I've spent my whole life with wildlife and I'm still learning. If I ever get bitten, stomped, chewed, lacerated, trampled, kicked, gouged, stung, or peed on - it's my fault, never the animals.

As far as hits are concerned my body has never quite been the same since I was capturing camels in the Simpson Desert. Mate, these camels are so big and so tough - but pale in comparison to Terri's driving.

I may have finally caught this feisty little boar, but I took a nasty set of prickles during the chase.

Prickles embedded right in the face and the flies just couldn't wait to zero in for a feed.

When I was catching Toolakea, a 7' female, I made the mistake of being caught in the mud with her, so she tried to remove me from her territory with a snap to the knee. I don't blame her as I had to catch her - and they hate that.

She split me well - definately needs stitching.
