Pat Spain is a wildlife biologist, cryptozoologist, biotech expert, TV presenter, key-note speaker, author, and cancer survivor with a passion for adventure. Pat is always enthusiastically seeking his next great escapade, and the opportunity to add to his ever growing list of “things that have bitten or stung him”. As the great nephew of the "Prophet of the Unexplained" Charles Fort, Pat thinks of himself as carrying on a family tradition by questioning mainstream science, considering unusual explanations for bizarre phenomena, and generally, investigating those things most people write off as impossible.
In the course of his journeys, Pat’s been charged by a silverback gorilla, initiated into a remote Amazonian tribe by participating in the most extreme ceremony in the world, the bullet ant ritual (nearly 1M YouTube views), been 1000 feet under the ocean in a 3-man-sub, nearly been shot down in a helicopter, eaten cat in Sumatra and rat in Cameroon, has lain down in a pit of 275,000 snakes, and spent up to 19 hours a day for four years running experiments in a space suit, inside a sterile bubble, in a state-of-the-art biotech lab.
The one constant in his life is a passion for adventure, education, and entertainment. Pat has served as Keynote Speaker at The Royal Geographical Society in London, NASA, and multiple international Universities. Whether he's talking to some school kids about the 20 foot snake he has wrapped around him or speaking to a group of executives about good training practices, Pat brings the same enthusiasm and depth of knowledge.
