The animal “guests” for Hanna’s upcoming visit haven’t been announced. Last year’s collection included Fennec fox kits, a 15-foot python, a Siberian lynx, a lemur, a lesser anteater, a penguin, a beaver, a young wallaby, a six-week-old black bear, and many others.

Hanna is one of America’s most beloved naturalists and adventurers. The director emeritus of the Columbus Zoo hosts two weekly TV shows and is a frequent guest on “Good Morning America,” “The Late Show with David Letterman” and other popular programs.

For his enthusiasm and wonderment with every new creature and experience he encounters, it’s no wonder he’s been called “every person’s TV zoologist.”
