Call of the Wildman which is commonly known as the “Turtle Man” is an American reality show which is debut on Animal planet. The show runs from 2011 to 2014. Being a reality show with a unique concept is the main reason why the show is loved by the audience.
The man who is called the Turtle Man is Kentucky woodsman Ernie Brown. He is in love with the animals but he is not a rescuer in fact he catches and releases the nuisance animals in their natural habitats.
Brown used to love turtles not only the simpler ones but snapping and Komodo Dragon turtles are also on his love list. The first time he introduced to the turtles is when he was seven years old. As soon he grew up he understands his intimate towards the turtle and decided to work a bit closer with them.
Brown always catches the turtles with his bare hands which is the reason his YouTube channel is quite popular. Seeing this Kentucky Educational Television‘s Kentucky Afield decided to work with Brown.
At first, they signed a show with him which is about twelve episodes. Some find the first season a bit smaller, despite the show does an amazing result. At first, the show is named “The Turtleman of Wild Kentucky” which is later changed and renamed “Call of the Wildman.”

The Premise of Turtle Man-
Brown not only captures the turtles but he caught all types of nuisance animals like raccoons, skunks, snakes, venomous spiders, and possums from which generally people go away because of their different appearance.
The best thing about Brown is, the technique he uses to capture the nuisance. He never harms a single animal while catching it nor he gets harmed by them.
His main purpose in catching the animals is to protect them from being killed by other humans or animals. In order to save their life he always sends them into their wild location.
In each episode with Brown, you’ll find one more person named Neal James. Neal is Brown’s best friend and an animal lover too. He has a dog named Lolly.

Ratings of Turtle Man-
According to the IMDb(2011-204), the show secures a rating of 6.8 points out of 10 with such user reviews…
“I used to LOVE this show, never missed an episode. That was however until I found out they actually planted the animals where they were before the taping. When those baby raccoons died because they left them there too long without care from their mom that was crossing the line. That show should have been canceled, none of that should’ve ever happened. You’ll never see Jeff Corwin trying to hurt or kill animals for gain.”
Flipping the coin on the other side, it grades with 7.6 out of 10 by Tv.com.
