Henry was attacked by an alligator

Episode 38,  Dec 06, 2019, 08:00 AM

Henry teaches marine science. He is also often found scuba diving in Florida rivers, looking for ancient shark teeth, prehistoric fossils, and other artifacts. One day he ran into the unexpected – a live alligator, who clamped down on Henry’s foot, determined to take him to the bottom of the river.

Henry is an educator in the field of marine science. And as you’ll hear when we’re talking, it’s not just his job. It’s his life work. It’s as much a passion for him as it is a career.

When he goes diving in a river and kind of rummaging around the bottom, he never really knows what he’ll find. What he expects to find mostly are rocks and sand. What he HOPES to find are ancient shark teeth, or even the skeletal remains of prehistoric creatures.

What he did NOT expect to find was a live alligator. But one day he did, and he was lucky enough to live through it and be able to tell us the story today.
