Animal House

Zoo critters put on a show that's more fun than improv.


The stars of Dr. ZooLittle's Wild Animal Show can be a bit temperamental. They also can show quite a flair for stealing the spotlight from the people who work with them during their three daily performances. The show is supposed to be about the zoo's veterinary program, but with flying birds, burrowing foxes, and slithering pythons as the main attraction, the animals usually find a way to hog the stage. Our bets are on Mel, a cockatoo who mercilessly mocks the doc, and Slomo, an uncooperative two-toed sloth who exhibits diva qualities rarely found outside of E!'s True Hollywood Story.
