Jack Hanna's Wild Countdown

Jack Hanna's Wild Countdown

Spring 2016 Television
Ages: 13 - 16 yrs.
Rating: TV G

Jack Hanna knows animals. He's been exploring, researching and bonding with them for more than 30 years.

His Wild Countdown series is a perfect way to categorize and showcase some of the best moments from this career, arranged by theme. The five loudest animals, for example. Among them: Howler monkeys in Belize and sperm whales off Dominica.

Quick and fun, it's almost like watching Hanna family home videos at times, as many include family members. His wife, Sue, particularly loved swimming with giant manatees in one Florida segment.

Jack Hanna's a pro who has devoted his life to the animal world. It's nice to see that he's still in the game - traveling the world so that he can educate and enlighten.
