Jimmy Riffle from "Gator Boys" stars in the Animal Planet reality docu-series.

Jimmy Riffle ("Gator Boys") has been working with native and exotic wildlife under the supervision of Mike "Skeet" Johns at the Native Village in Hollywood, Florida, on the Seminole Indian reservation for many years. Jimmy met his partner and good friend Paul Bedard at the Native Village when Jimmy was a young volunteer there. With Paul knowing a great deal and Jimmy knowing just a little at the time, they worked side

by side wrangling gators and catching venomous snakes. Under Skeet's supervision Jimmy taught his younger brother Andy to wrestle gators at a young age.

Skeet took a young Jimmy under his wing and taught him about wildlife and how to live off the land. He taught him how to identify, appreciate and respect native wildlife and the land itself. Since the age of eleven, Jimmy has wanted to follow in Skeet's footsteps. The two became close friends as Jimmy moved from volunteer to manager of the Native Village by the age of 18. Skeet passed away in 2005, leaving Jimmy at the Native Village to walk literally in his footsteps.

Jimmy still works at the Native Village and spends much of his time with his partner Paul exploring the Everglades and the swamps of Florida as well as new areas outside the state. Jimmy says, "The learning experience I get everyday working with wildlife and meeting new people is a blessing from God. I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world."
