to Zoo Knoxville’s, The Wild Life.
Watch our new original series, “The Wild Life,” where we go behind the scenes to shine a light on the animals we love and the people who care for them. Come with our host, Brad Carpenter, as he takes us on a journey to the wild side of life at Zoo Knoxville.

Time for episode three! We broke out of our shell to explore the world of tortoises, specifically bog turtles, radiated tortoises, and Aldabra giant tortoises. Come along and meet Michael Ogle, Curator for the Department of Herpetology, along with one of our favorite reptiles of all time, Big Al.
Countdown with us to the live premier of Episode 4.
