Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

Animal Adventures is somewhat lighter and breezier than other wildlife shows. Kids will find it sweet when Jack kisses a dolphin and may lobby for scuba lessons when they see him jump into a pool filled with colorful tropical fish.

One word of caution: Although the show has plenty of endearing moments, some episodes include a few graphic encounters as well. For example, young viewers might find it scary when a group of sharks goes into a feeding frenzy and a local diver gets bitten on the ankle in the fray. But overall Jack Hanna's Animal Adventures is a great pick for kids looking to learn more about the world and the creatures who make it interesting.
