Phil Torres is a scientist, photographer, and explorer who’s hosted and filmed more than 100 hours of non-fiction and documentary television around the world. With degrees in biology and entomology from Cornell University, his research has taken him to the depths of the Amazon Rainforest, where he spent two years working on new species discoveries and conservation projects.
Phil has been bitten by an anaconda, tangled with a tiger shark, and gotten lost in a forest full of quicksand.... He gained widespread notoriety beyond the scientific community when he allowed a parasitic bot fly to mature in his shoulder -- all in the name of science.
He has done research and covered science stories in Mongolia, Venezuela, Ecuador, Peru, Sweden, the Arctic, the bottom of the ocean, and the Bahamas, to name a few.
