From Big and Scary, to Cute and Cuddly - This Month's Wildlife Has it All
 
Tampa, FL August 29, 2013 - This month on Wildlife at Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo, host Dr. Larry Killmar introduces us to Goyang, the zoo’s newest orangutan resident. We get a close-up visit with a recently introduced pair of sloth bears. Zoo staff demonstrates training techniques on the largest predator in the Western Hemisphere - the Orinoco crocodile. The Discovery Center shows off a young Komodo dragon that is rapidly growing towards full size. We visit our aviary to watch as two sand hill cranes tenderly raise a Demoiselle crane chick. Finally we welcome the zoo's brand new baby African black-footed penguin.

Replays Sundays at 7:30pm, Mondays at 10am, Fridays at 1pm and Saturdays at 9:30pm.

City of Tampa Television is Channel 15 on the Verizon FiOS system and Channel 615 on Bright House Networks.
