ABOUT THE SHOW: Jack Hanna has made countless television appearances since 1983 on shows such as Good Morning America, CNN’s Larry King Live, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Fox News programs, and The Late Show with David Letterman.

Jungle Jack took his infectious energy to the airwaves by creating two of his own nationally syndicated television programs Jack Hanna’s Animal Adventures and most recently Jack Hanna’s Into the Wild. Into the Wild is unscripted and action-packed as Jack and his family explore the corners of the globe and discover amazing animals and cultures. In its first season, Into the Wild won an Emmy for Outstanding Children’s Series.

Jungle Jack’s live show features many of his favorite animal friends, as well as fascinating and humorous stories and footage from his adventures around the world. Audiences give Jack rave reviews – everyone from the youngest child to the oldest adult is entertained and inspired.

  1. I have 2 little monkeys! They are so full of energy and they’re always jumping and swinging on things!

  2. I have a little owl that likes to watch things with big eyes and just turn his head saying nothing at all and a snuggly bear cub.

  3. I have a sloth! I love her to death but she is so slow all the time. She takes her time on every thing.

  4. We’ve always called our youngest son Brody-bear, now he’s 3 & answers to little bear! The nickname stuck bc he could tear through all the food in the fridge & pantry just like a bear!!

  5. My son Skyler loves to climb, laugh in a silly way, and jump ever since he was little. So, it’s fitting that he grew up to love and adore monkeys. I call him my monkey boy and he absolutely loves it! I would love to take him, and my other 3 kids to see this! I am also sharing on my facebook wall.

  6. My children remind me of monkeys! They climb, jump, and make noise,

  7. I have a monkey (one who monkeys all around), a snake (one who is a little sly and mischievous, and a little turtle baby (my infant) 🙂

  8. We have always called my son our “little birdie” because from day one he has always loved to eat, and even now at 2 1/2 he sometimes just opens his mouth and waits for me to fill it instead of feeding himself!

  9. One of mine is a sloth (a teenager who sleeps all the time and moves veeerrryyy sloooowwely) lol… (very smart though), and one is a monkey (high energy, bounding all over the house, never stops, always cracking jokes, and always getting on the sloths nerves : )). I don’t want the tickets though, they should go to a younger child than mine. I just thought it would be fun to weigh in because my kids are so funny. They are like night and day!

  10. Both of my kids resemble “Monkeys”. They even know how to say they are monkeys in spanish! “Yo soy un chango!” Lol. Plus they are always climbing on things and swinging from everything.

  11. I would have to go with, MONKEY. My son & I have so much fun making monkey sounds, especially in Wal-Mart, we always get comments. lol

  12. I have a monkey who’s 6 and full if engery always moving and jumping and a sloth who is 8 but acts like 13 lazy dazy haha. We would love to come to your show!

  13. All three of mine are monkeys, no doubt. They are never still and never quiet! Would love to take Big Sis to see Jack Hanna.

  14. I have two monkeys!! They are constantly active and just the cutest things you have ever seen! My little man would LOVE this…animals AND pizza AND mommy. All of his faves =)

  15. Daughter-lion, fierce, but also loves to sleep!
    Son-eagle, loves to live life and be in charge!
    Son-kangaroo-easy going and busy!

  16. That’s so funny that so many people said monkey, because that is definitely what I have!

  17. We have a “Hamster” because of the way she’s burrowed since she was tiny….maybe a mole would be more appropriate now that I’m thinking of it. I love that this name and habit has stuck for almost 6 years! And a “Mill-angutan” a combo of millie and orangutan with her red hair. haha!

  18. well Im gonna tell you, sometimes I feel im back at the zoo myself. I love animals I have two beautiful kids. one is 2 years old and thinks she is a big old kitty cat. the other one is 3 and he just thinks he is all animals. everytime we put in Madagascar they think they are all the animals and try to have a compitision on who can be the loudest animal, and use all the noses to hum to I like to move it move it. so I live in the zoo everyday, nothen says lovin like the great outdoors of your kids animal noises.

  19. My toddler son is like a sweet lil puppy dog, always wanting attention and always into mischief! My baby girl is like a bird, chirping loud when she wants something!
