Makenzie Lawrey's brother Gavin is only 6 years old but he suffers from mitochondrial disease - a rare illness which zaps the energy of cells inside a body which can result in muscle weakness, cardiac and/or liver disease, along with a lot more serious complications.

Check out a video (above) from the first time Alexander spent an extended period of time with the kings of the jungle.

Alexander isn't sure when his experiment will begin, but it should happen sometime in 2013.
