The slogan for Animal Planet is "surprisingly human."

Coincidentally enough, that was my reaction to The Turtleman the first time I saw his show Call Of The Wildman. Ernie Brown Jr. catches turtles in the backwoods of Kentucky. He wades in ponds to track them, wrestles them and finally yanks them out the muddy water. He's been doing this for 40 years and in Season 3 he continues to get down and dirty!

But what kind of person jumps into a murky pond with his shirt off and dives after turtles for a living?

Find out in today's Kramp Cast as I interview Ernie about life being known as The Turtleman. And yes, he has a signature "call of the wild" to go with his compelling character. Enjoy!
