Author-explorer Sy Montgomery  (Spell of the Tiger , Search for the Golden Moon Bear ) has been described by some as the Indiana Jones of the animal kingdom. And, bonus, she isn’t even afraid of snakes—in fact, she once spent some time in a pit with 18,000 of the slithering critters and walked away none the worse for wear. Take that, Henry Jones, Jr.!
In this interview with Lionel—of The Lionel Show , natch—Sy talks about some of her favorite fierce jungle creatures—like the 800 species of tarantula that can taste things with their feet—and reveals how she ended up in a situation where she was undressed by an orangutan. Wild stuff!
