Wild Kratts: Jungle Animal DVD Available Now
We have never watched Wild Kratts before...
But, as much as Broxton is into watching shows about animals, I thought he would be very eager to watch this... I am not sure why, but the first time I put it on, he watched for a minute and then decided he didn't want to watch that... and so he left to go play with his toys... You will not hear complaints from me, as I would much rather him play than watch tv anyways, so I just turned it off and we went about our day...
Then, a couple days later, he asked me if I would put on Wild Kratts for him.
He watched for a few minutes and then again, he was off to explore other things...
I had no clue that it was both real television mixed with animation... I thought it was just animation the whole time. I personally thought it was pretty cool, so I am eager to see if he wants to watch it again soon!
Here is the description from the PBS Store Site:
Creature teachers Chris and Martin Kratt will take families along on extraordinary animal-powered adventures. The show transforms the Kratt Brothers into animated versions of themselves, allowing the real-life zoologists to visit wild animals in their little-seen habitats and showcase key science concepts. Episodes include: Walk on the Wetside; A Huge Orange Problem; Birds of a Feather; and Googly-Eye: The Night Guru
Walk on the Wetside -
When Chris and Martin locate an amazing water-walking Basilisk lizard in Costa Rica, they try to replicate its actions in order to learn how this rare lizard is able to walk on water. They discover that by using its wide feet, churning its legs to create water pockets and keeping up a certain speed, the Basilisk is able to run on water in order to escape from predators. And when Donita Donata begins capturing basilisks, Martin and Chris us their new water walking powers to rescue these rare lizards.
A Huge Orange Problem -
While Chris and Martin are off searching for the endangered Orangutan in the deep forests of Borneo, back at the Tortuga HQ Aviva, Koki and Jimmy get carried away swinging on vines and their muscles so get incredibly sore that they can't do anything. The bros attempt to rush back with the first aid kit but a huge orangutan keeps tossing them back into the forest. Here they learn that orangutans use a special leaf and chew it into a lotion to ease muscle soreness, and return with this orangutan medicine to help their friends. But Zach has sent his Zachbots to fell the trees of the orangutan forest, and Martin and Chris activate the orangutan powers of the Creature Power Suit to rid the forest of saw-armed Zachbots, and save the orangutans rainforest home.
Birds of a Feather -
When Aviva reveals that dancing is just not her thing, Chris and Martin set out in the New Guinea forest to inspire her to give dancing a try by uncovering some of the greatest dancers in the creature world - the Birds of Paradise. They soon find that the male birds use their showy bright feathers and extraordinary dances to display to potential female mates that they are healthy and strong. But when the gang gets caught up in Donita's plan to capture these fashionable birds for her latest clothing line, Aviva must put her dancing skills on the line to save them.
Googly-Eye: The Night Guru -
The Kratt brothers secretly "borrow" Aviva's half finished night vision goggles to go in search of a mysterious nocturnal creature. But when the unstable goggles stop working, the brothers find themselves taken in by the nocturnal society of the tarsier. As they investigate, the Wild Kratts team discovers that nocturnal creatures only come out at night and learn that eyes help a creature see by collecting the light that comes from objects all around. But when the tarsier troop is in danger of losing one of their own, Chris and Martin must tap into their newfound understanding of nocturnal living and help the troubled tarsier family.
