‘Animal Exploration with Jarod Miller’ on Discovery Kids

(The Philippine Star) - August 3, 2013 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines - Animal aficionado and educator Jarod Miller is on a mission to inspire kids and their families to follow their natural-born instincts to discover our world including the animals that live with us.And what better way to learn about animals than to jump right in to the heart of the animal kingdom! Discovery Kids’ newest animal documentary series Animal Exploration with Jarod  Miller takes viewers around the globe with zoologist Jarod Miller to meet animals, chat with experts and share discoveries about the special traits and lifestyles of friendly and not-so-friendly critters every weekday starting Aug. 14 at 4 p.m.

Hand-feed crocodiles, dangle sticks in front of snapping turtles, handle venomous snakes, and enter a shark cage for a meet-and-greet with fearsome fishes alongside Jarod and his zookeeper friends. But it’s not just the positively wild you’ll see — the show features an equal amount of milder animal interaction and loads of kid-friendly humor, such as kissing monkeys and punching kangaroos. As a lifelong animal lover, Jarod utilizes his zoology and animal behavior background to highlight the quirks and amazing talents of animal species. The energetic and humorous Jarod also shares stories of his crazy adventures (like how he got sprayed by the baby skunks he smuggled into his mother’s car!) with young viewers to keep them coming back for more exploration fun. 

Each episode of the series runs with a theme from animal giants to the lightning fast ones, the creatures with odd human habits to the creepiest-looking critters out in the wilderness. But apart from revealing to kids what lies in the world around them, Animal Exploration with Jarod Miller also helps them identify positive role models and values that will encourage them to be environmentally responsible. The show’s “Did You Know?” segment will also give viewers fast facts that they can use in their own backyard.
