TBT: Monty’s Traveling Reptile Show Featuring Brian Keating

Monty’s (Krizan) travelling reptile show from the early 1990′s, with (a very young) guest Brian Keating! Too funny!


A fan of Monty downloaded this classic and wrote: “This video is not that great quality as I transferred it from a 25+ year old VHS tape. This short video is just intended to remind the viewer of how the show was. The old commercials were left in there for nostalgia… I fell in love with reptiles as a child partly because of this great show!”
