About Phil Torres

The host of animal and exploration shows on the Discovery Channel and Animal Planet, Phil has been bitten by an anaconda, tackled a tiger shark, and gotten lost in a forest of quicksand...all in the name of science. His love of nature and adventure has taken him to the Arctic Circle, the Amazon rainforest, and many exotic locations in between.
