If your kids are anything like mine, they love animals. They go through phases of which animals are their favorites, but are always fascinated by all things furry, scaly and ferocious. School is almost back in session (or already is for some) so it’s nice to have something new for them to enjoy and relax with after class. PBS is releasing a brand new Wild Kratts on August 23rd!
PBS Distribution announced it is releasing four episodes from PBS KIDS’ popular WILD KRATTS series on the new DVD “WILD REPTILES.” When Martin and Chris Kratt find themselves in a jam, they turn to wild reptiles to help them save the day! Reptiles have some seriously amazing adaptations and incredibly awesome creature features. Learn about the gecko’s ability to climb walls as the Kratt Brothers try to foil Zach Varmitech’s attempt to steal their Miniaturizer. And uncover some fascinating facts about rattlesnakes as Martin and Chris search for a new supply of crystals in the Sonoran Desert to power the Tortuga. Nothing’s better than exploring natural habitats with the Wild Kratts and learning about the incredible “creature powers” of the animals they meet!
“WILD REPTILES” will be available on DVD August 23, 2016. The DVD run time is approximately 120 minutes The episodes included on this DVD are listed below.
“The Gecko Effect”
There’s a mystery to be solved, as the Wild Kratts team wonders how a gecko lizard climbs up smooth surfaces and can even climb upside down. The gang uses their Miniaturizer to shrink down and discovers it’s all about physics: all objects have electrical charges that attract one another and the gecko’s marvelous toe pad structure charges so much that they can walk on surfaces as smooth as glass. But in the meantime, Zach has stolen their Miniaturizer and imprisoned them in a glass terrarium. Martin and Chris activate the new gecko powers of their Creature Power Suits and must retrieve the Miniaturizer before Zach shrinks all the animals in the creature world.
A pop creature quiz challenge about the differences between crocodiles and alligators turns into a full-blown “crocogator” contest to find out what actually is different about these two similar creatures.
After the Tortuga crash lands in the Sonoran Desert, Koki discovers that the Tellurium crystals have run out of power and they need a new supply. Martin and Chris volunteer to go out into the desert to find this important source of energy and discover more than they were expecting!
“Chameleons on Target”
Aviva’s special ring chip invention is stolen by a mysterious lemur! Chris and Martin set off after it, with a little help from the amazing creature powers of the chameleon.
WILD KRATTS transforms the Kratt Brothers, creators of the award-winning “Kratts’ Creatures” and Emmy-winning “Zoboomafoo,” into animated versions of themselves, allowing the real-life zoologists to visit wild animals in their little-seen habitats and showcase key science concepts along the way. From elephants using physics to suck gallons of water with their trunks to a fleet of peregrine falcons that harness the force of gravity to speed through the air, each episode of WILD KRATTS presents age-appropriate science inspired by the natural abilities of the animals that the Kratt Brothers – and young viewers – meet. WILD KRATTS airs daily on PBS KIDS (check local listings).
