We love wildlife, but the problem is that wildlife doesn't always love us. Sometimes humans clash with the animal kingdom and it can turn deadly. One way to help is to understand wildlife better, and that's where animal biologist Forrest Galante comes in. In his series "Mysterious Creatures with Forrest Galante," the man himself comes face to face with some of the most epic creatures you'll find outdoors.

Take alligators, for example. Most of us would stay as far away as possible, but then we don't learn anything. Forrest not only gets in for a closer look, but he also works hard to safely relocate the gator. We wanted to know more about Forrest's adventures, so our RTM hosts spoke to the animal expert via Zoom.

You can catch "Mysterious Creatures with Forrest Galante" on Animal Planet beginning Sunday, Oct. 17 at 9PM ET/PT and streams on discovery+ the same day.
