In the second episode of Untamed China series he says the team cooked vegetarian food especially for him. Nigel confirms he is a vegetarian on his official website by stating that the Peregrine falcon is his favourite animal and that he would love to be such a bird, but because he is a vegetarian eating raw pigeon would make that hard. In Panda Adventure Marven states that he is “usually teetotal” when having a celebratory drink with a team of Chinese trackers who led him to see pandas close-up in the wild.
