Posted on 30 Mar 2012

Kangaroos, Dracos (flying lizards) and other critters join brothers Chris and Martin Kratt every weekday on “Wild Kratts” to teach our little ones about science in such a fun, cool way.  This mama has learned a few things too – it’s easy to get sucked in to this show – sort of like a “Globetrekker” with animals and fun facts.  Or a “Rick Steve’s Europe”, just animated with a few creatures thrown in for fun.  Makes me want to travel.  Makes my kids excited about science.  Win, win.  And no, we’ll stick to turtles and fish for now – maybe the elephant when you are a little older. 

Check out a special week of shows the first week of April:

“Backyard Adventures Week” premieres on AETN April 2-6 at 4 p.m.:
April 2: Mystery of the Squirmy Wormy 
April 3: Voyage of the Butterflier XT
April 4: Bass Class 
April 5: The Blue and the Gray 
April 6: Flight of the Pollinators – NEW!

Animals can take you anywhere in science! Creature teachers Chris and Martin Kratt will take 6- to 8-year olds and their families along on extraordinary animal-powered adventures in WILD KRATTS. The show transforms the Kratt Brothers, creators of the award-winning Kratts’ Creatures and Emmy-winning Zoboomafoo, into animated versions of themselves, allowing the real-life zoologists to visit wild animals in their little-seen habitats and showcase key science concepts along the way. 

From elephants using physics to suck gallons of water with their trunks to a fleet of peregrine falcons that harness the force of gravity to speed through the air, each of the 40 half-hour episodes of WILD KRATTS presents age-appropriate science inspired by the natural abilities of the animals that the Kratt brothers – and young viewers – meet. 

TUNE IN:  "Wild Kratts" airs weekdays on AETN at 4 p.m.
