Thanks, @Raven!

I want to start by listing my favorite Keepers in no particular order.

Niall - Bodge's best buddy and the only one able to bargain with him to release the big wooden stick.

Kristen - I love her exuberance and love of the animals.

Sarah with the unfortunately poor teeth (don't they have orthodontists in England) for her no-nonsense attitude and facing down the giraffes when they misbehave.

Clare as second in command with the chimps and her delivery of the facts.

Actually, there isn't any of them I don't love.  The two in the insect house are adorable - he looks like a giant bug nerd and she would be the last person I'd expect to be one as well!

Yessss!!!!  Finally a forum for this show. It's my favorite show on TV.  I have about sixty of the shows saved on my DVR. I don't know what I'm going to do when I have to replace the thing.

I like the escape artists animals.     The hubbub when the orangutans (or which ever primate they were) escaped was hysterical.     I love all of the keepers.      The young elephant getting jealous of the new baby, and the way the females all protected the baby was amazing.

I have learned so much about all different kinds of animals but especially about the elephants.  I love the babies and am so uplifted that Indali beat the virus.

Oooh, she was a sneaky little brat, wasn't she? She knew it was wrong but she did it anyway and took pleasure in doing it.

Not sure how Animal Planet purchases programs from England but according to Wikipedia it looks like we've seen episode 1 of season 8 but none after that.  Lots of interesting stuff from the descriptions!

I wish this show had enough seasons and episodes for it's own channel. It is a totally charming endeavor. 

I'm STILL chuckling about Diego the otter moving out after he didn't click with Icana: "his clothes are boxed on the porch."

Interesting short video from the San Diego Zoo and testing for susceptibility in the species.

That IS good news! I hope Anjan is nicer to a new baby than Indali was, when it was her turn. She was a little shit!

The girls do tend to be a little more jealous it seems. I remember how Nandita was as well. They were a riot to watch though.

My definition of happiness is watching a baby elephant try to work their trunk.  So cute and goofy.  I always imagine what their internal monologue would be.
