Editorial Reviews

Living the wild life doesn't always mean fun and partying for Bud DeYoung and Carrie Cramer. They live together with over 400 animal residents, and work together, rescuing exotic animals, rehabilitating local wildlife and running a struggling small zoo in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. With no days off and no vacation, their relationship has more than its fair share of pressure.

My Life Is a Zoo follows this couple at their DeYoung Family Zoo as they constantly work to keep up with the demands of their business, while tending to their huge and ever-growing wild family. The zoo is home to a diverse mix of exotic and regional animals, some of them rescued from distant parts of the world-and now even includes a rehab and rescue program with Bud and Carrie adopting between three and 10 orphaned animals every week.

Episodes include Show Me the Hippo, White Tiger Trouble, and The Hippo Has Landed.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media.'s standard return policy will apply.

This product is expected to play back in DVD Video "play only" devices, and may not play in other DVD devices, including recorders and PC drives.

We loved this show so much that we actually made the trip to Michigan from Ohio just to go visit it. It was an amazing experience and would love to go back some time.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Show Inspires!!!! Nat Geo We Need More!!! December 5, 2013
By nicole
Nat Geo we need more!!
Carrie and Bud do a fantastic job running the zoo. We are huge supporters of all that they do. These episodes capture only a fraction of all the wonderful work that they do everyday 24/7 rain, snow, or shine.
They make a huge effort to make every guest's experience unique and educational, from feeding time, to taking out the baby animals and letting the guests feed, play and interact with them.They take excellent care of all their animals and are constantly expanding, updating and improving and it is always amazing to see what they have done since we last visited.
Carrie's work with Pipers Place no kill shelter is inspiring and we take every opportunity we can to donate food, toys and other much needed supplies to help out.They take in any animal in need and do their best to find each animal a forever home.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Zoo to visit November 20, 2013
By Chris
We've visited this zoo multiple times. Bud and Carrie are the best zookeepers around. They love people and most of all they love their animals. There is no other place that you can stand within 5 feet of a male lion and feel his roar. Yes I said feel. It's amazing to feel the ground vibrate from this awesome animal. Nowhere else can you hold, interact with, feed, and learn so much about animals. The DeYoung's are very special to our family and their zoo will be on our to do list annually. My Life as a Zoo depicts everything that these wonderful people go through on a daily basis. Whether it's feeding a hippo, experiencing the big cats, or simply listing to Bud and Carrie's stories, this zoo is by far, the best zoo to visit.

5.0 out of 5 stars BEST ZOO EVER!! December 5, 2013
Verified Purchase
BEST ZOO EVER! We have been there every Fourth of July since 2009! Bud and Carrie are absolutely amazing with the people and the animals. You get to be hands on with some of the animals. It is a great experience and everyone should travel there at least once. You WILL NOT regret it! Hope that NGW goes back, we loved the shows and I just ordered my DVD so we can be reminded of our great experiences there!
