Aha! Thanks Nena!
I'd never heard of him either, Hissy. You remember Jack Hanna, right? Well, he's gotten kinda crabby and mean, and doesn't do the talk shows very well. Last time I saw him on Letterman, they almost got in a fight! And he brought a chicken, a horse and an owl. It wasn't that exciting.
Last night, this Doc guy brought out first two baby Ligons. Never heard of them before. When a male lion and female tiger reproduce, its a Ligon, and when a male tiger and female lion reproduce its a Tigon. Apparently this is more common than you'd expect. The babies live with him in his house ~ someone had acquired them as pets, but then didn't know what to do with them (they get to be 900 pounds!) They were so gentle though it was amazing.
Then he brought out a mandrill (a primate). It was hilarious - it kept just grabbing food from Jay! And it had the biggest teeth you could imagine.
Then he brought out two baby primates (I forgot which, not a chimp, orangutan, or anything like that). They were jumping into this pool for food and then running around getting everything wet and avoiding getting caught. It was so funny!
