Is there anything better than live entertainment with kids? Yes, there is something better…Adding animals to the mix!
Future zoologists, conservationists, and scientists will not want to miss Animal Planet’s own Peter Gros as he stars in his own Wild Kingdom show, coming to The Whiting on Friday, November 16 at 7:30 p.m.
This show is the perfect opportunity to sneak a child out for a date night, or perhaps even an early Christmas present?!?
I have the scoop + a giveaway below!
ABOUT THE SHOW
In this show, Peter shares his exciting animal world, travel experiences and timeless tales. He highlights his many adventures with a mix of video clips and bloopers while introducing friendly exotic animals to audience members, and telling inspirational stories dealing with issues of conservation, travel, and wildlife filming. Peter’s fascinating stories have been thrilling and educating audiences across the country for years.
But these aren’t just animals captured in the wild…The animal ambassadors appearing with Peter are licensed both state and federal and fully insured. The animals are hand raised on bottles or have been rescued so they are completely imprinted on people.

So hard to choose! They love animals so much. This would be incredible for them. I heard zebra, peregrine falcon, badger, octopus, peanut bug, dwarf rabbit, and parrot fish.

YVONNE WOODSTOCK says
My husband and I both get crazy, giddy, excited over ANY and EVERY animal there is, more than kids around us, even do, usually. We are both pretty much obsessed with all of them! We would be most excited to get to see (especially if we get a chance to pet or interact in any way even for a brief moment) with any of them that we haven’t yet. Lemur, Fox, A wild cat of any kind, Owl, Komodo Dragon, Capybara and many more, too many to list!
Victoria Border says
I want to see a kangaroo or aligator!
