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.
