Yes! My favourite host on Animal Planet - the most animated Jeff Corwin!
Apart from being extremely humourous, I like the fact that Ellen promotes various causes on her show.
This episode on Africa's wild animals really struck a chord in my heart. Being an animal lover and having been to Africa myself, Corwin's appearance on the set was truly a treat.I've tried to transcribe the very funny dialogue that goes with the pictures here.
Corwin : She is 2 months old.
Ellen : Oh, that's a baby lion! How old is it?
C : No, she is being hand-reared for education outreach.
E : (cub makes a low but sharp growl) She doesn't sound contented.C : No, that is a actually happy sound.
It is estimated that the lion poplation today is as low as 30,000.
In Africa there are 2 pinnacle predators. There's the lion, king of the beast and there human beings. And both of these life forms are competing for the same resource.
E : Oh, that is so beautiful! (reaches forward to pat the cub...)
That was a hilarious moment.
Stayed tuned for Part 2!
