Making Creepy Crawly Friends Wherever You Go.

Sometimes, the most fascinating place to explore is your own backyard! No matter where you live, there are incredible creatures all around. You just need to know where to look for them.

Join host Peter Schriemer on a backyard safari in three episodes of Smithsonian Channel's Critter Quest and discover all sorts of critters right outside your door. Schriemer not only unearths your fuzzy, squirmy, slimy, gilled, winged and multi legged neighbors, he shares fun facts about them and introduces you to how they go about their daily business.

Day and night, in every climate, you can find them under rocks, on the sidewalk, clinging to your house, in trees and bushes, swimming about in just about every space, whether you are in the country, suburbs or city.

Creepy Crawlers Everywhere. From the click beetle, slug and grey tree frog to a walking stick and jumping spider, Schriemer makes creepy crawly friends wherever he goes.

Season of Change. Schriemer shows you the different ways wildlife prepares for the winter foraging, hibernating and migrating.

The Wild Side of D.C. Politicians aren't the only wildlife in Washington, D.C. Meet the untamed critters who call our nation's capital city home.

5.0 out of 5 stars Review from April 19, 2009
Ohhh, these are some awesome videos for nature loving kids! Our test group absolutely went wild for these and insisted on watching them repeatedly. Luckily for us parents, these don't carry the annoyance factor that typical cartoons bring, so repeat viewings are a-okay. These are the ultimate resource for any kid who loves learning about bugs, birds, squirrels, caterpillars and more!

Peter Schriemer is the perfect host for this series. He is engaging, appears to take a genuine interest in the subjects at hand and his enthusiasm is downright contagious. He takes us on a "backyard safari" to demonstrate how one's very own backyard can become the most fascinating place of all for exploration. The camera work is also excellent, with up close, clear footage of all the featured animals.

This disc contains three episodes, each tackling different subject areas. Creepy Crawlers Everywhere features all types of insects and small animals: beetles, slugs, walking sticks, pill bugs, frogs and jumping spiders. There's even a neat little lesson on how to build your own beetle trap, using common household materials. Season of Change gives us the lowdown on how different animals prepare for winter. For the coldest season, we learn how these guys must put their survival skills to work by foraging (squirrels and chipmunks), hibernating (frogs and turtles) and migrating (birds). And finally, The Wild Side of D.C., shows exactly which critters call Washington, D.C. their home - from Canada geese to ducks and squirrels, the animals run this town.

Smithsonian Networks is renowned for quality programming, and it's no surprise that Smithsonian Networks Kids offers equally great content. These programs are informative, down to earth (literally!) and utterly fascinating. Bug out on this backyard safari and your kids will be begging to give their own yards a closer look to make their own creepy, crawly friends.
