About Trevor Smith

At the age of 16, Trevor got his first assignment for supplying animals for the purpose of film, which was working with a couple of snakes and cockroaches to be dressed on a nude for the film Satan's Slaves.

His grandfather was the last gamekeeper in Chalfont St. Peter. Trevor later took a similar position at Windsor Safari Park, with close contact with the Killer Whale and Dolphins.

Trevor and his team are now in huge demand every day of the year providing animals of all shapes and sizes for the film and TV industry. His company “Animals work” supplies animals all over the world.


One of the Founder Members of the Thames and Chiltern Herpetological Group, Trevor has written various children's books. He is also concerned with the deteriorating wild places around the world and his views have been well documented in various magazines, TV shows and documentaries.


Trevor's secret is that as an animal psychologist he understands both what the animal will do as part of their natural abilities as well as when animals are comfortable with what's asked of them in studio conditions.


Trevor has also starred in a thirteen part documentary "Wild Thing" which has followed him and his Animal Woks  Team around the world. The series has been seen across most European countries and was transmitted on the Animal Planet TV channel, and is currently working on series 2 as well as other projects.
