Ernie Brown Biography

Reality Star, Ernie Brown, Jr. also know as 'The Turtleman' is best known for Animal Plantet's 'Call of the Wildman'

Ernie has been diving into murky Kentucky ponds in search of snapping turtles for nearly 40 years. Born and raised in Kentucky, he spent his childhood exploring the woods and learning the ways of the animals that occupy them. Turtleman caught his first snapping turtle, a 25-pounder, when he was just seven-years-old.

Since then, the legend of Turtleman has spread throughout the Blue Grass state and has afforded Ernie a career as an animal rescuer. At the age of 17, he caught his biggest turtle to date, aptly named the "Loch Ness Turtle," a monster snapper weighing close to 55 pounds.

Ernie catches an average of 300 turtles a year and has been injured 33 times. To date, he reckons he's caught over 12,000 turtles.
