Pat Spain is a 29-year-old wildlife scientist. For the past eight years, he has worked at one of the world's leading biotechnology companies, helping to develop and apply the most advanced technologies in the life sciences. His wildlife expertise spans from caring for exotic reptiles at a major reptile distribution centre to teaching students about marine life at the New England Aquarium. In 2005, Spain created a nature Web show titled “Nature Calls” and chronicled his “ridiculous adventures to find, film and interact with wild animals all over the planet.” His exploits for the program ranged from examining scorpions and black widows in the Arizona desert to wolves in New England. Spain has a bachelor of science in biology from Suffolk University. His great-uncle, Charles Fort, was a paranormal pioneer in the early 20th century who investigated strange reports from around the world.
