Snakes in the City is a documentary-style reality TV series centering on the daily life of snake rescuers, Simon Keys, and his herpetologist girlfriend, Siouxsie Gillett in the coastal city of Durban, South Africa. This once was a tropical jungle teaming with spitting cobras, green mambas, black mambas, pythons, night adders, bush snakes and boomslang. It’s their territory and humans built a city right on top of it. Today, the jungle may be gone, but the snakes sure ain’t!

On this rip-roaring season of The Incredible Dr. Pol, the docs are off to the races as they zoom from critical clinic visits to emergency farm calls. Strap in for a wild ride as the crew of Pol Veterinary Services works seven days a week pulling calves, pushing prolapses and trying to triage the mayhem that comes with the central Michigan territory.
