Nine new "Wild Kratts" episodes air week of Oct. 15

Posted on 12 Oct 2012

"Wild Kratts" New Season Starts 10/15 

Tune in for a creature-packed month this October with "Wild Kratts"! Beginning Mon., Oct. 15, the brothers prowl with lions and cruise the Nile with hippos across nine brand new episodes!  And don't miss Weird Kratts Week Oct. 22-26, when we meet a bunch of kooky and spooky animals from across the globe.  The Halloween episode is scary and spidery as we explore the secrets of spider silk.


Are you a teacher, educator, mom/dad or are just curious about the world around you?  The games and nature/science info on the "Wild Kratts" website are truly phenomenal.  You can choose your character and then choose different habitats your character visits.  The Ocean, African Savannah and more.  Then, once you roam around in the habitat, you can click on the creatures that live there for a lesson about said creature!  Very cool - and listen - it's not just for kids - whenever I watch this show with my own critters, I learn something too.  Seriously. Listen. I can tell you all about the inside of a Beaver dam and Orcas. Cause I KNOW you were sitting there wondering about these things. Well, maybe you weren't. But my kids now think I'm smart cause I know these things.  

And guess what? There is a special place for teachers and parents to "Wild Kratts" related lessons.

"Wild Kratts" Weekdays at 4 p.m. Nine new episodes start Monday, Oct. 15, and culminate in a special Halloween episode.
