Jimmy Riffle can be seen on the show Gator Boys that airs on Animal Planet. He has also been featured on National Geographic, The Today Show, Inside Edition, Fox and Friends, and Verminators. He also had a documentary, In the Pit by Sean Lewis and Lenina Garnhart, that was about his childhood with alligator wrestling and how that would impact his future.
Jimmy Riffle is 29 years old and has been working with native and exotic wildlife since the age of 11. I have worked alongside with my friends Richard, Tre, and my brother Andy. I have experience with gators, snakes, and different species of turtles, bears, exotic birds and big cats just to name a few. Under the supervision of my mentor, Mike "Skeet" Johns, I learned how to teach people of all ages with a hands on approach teaching them how to identify, appreciate, and respect native wildlife and the land itself. I love exploring the Everglades and swamps of Florida as well as new areas out of the state.Becoming a part of Animal Planets show Gatorboys has been a dream come true! My second passion is to bring our Roadshow out to teach as many people as possible about animals and to give them a hands on experince like I had. Going to different states and areas, meeting new people with our roadshow will truly be an adventure for us all!
