John Cann joins Alan Jones following the release of his book The Last Snake Man to introduce his friend fang and talk about his remarkable life.

He’s a wildlife warrior, a professor of snakes, a top Rugby League player, a champion boxer and even an Olympic decathlete.

Every Sunday for almost a century John’s family ran the famous snake show in a pit at La Perouse – in Sydney’s south – an area once alive with tiger, brown and black snakes.
