Safari Jeff’s popular Living Wild show is happening in Boitanio Mall today and tomorrow.

The popular shows all about reptiles, featuring live giant turtles, snakes, lizards and frogs with educational commentary by Safari Jeff and his partner Shannon, will take place today, March 23 at 1:30 and 6:30 p.m. in the activity room adjacent to Zellers on the upper level of Boitanio Mall.

Tomorrow, March 24 the show times are 1 and 3 p.m.

Safari Jeff and Shannon have been touring their Living Wild show in Canada for more than 10 years and have more than 15 years experience inspiring audiences of all ages to have a deeper appreciation of animals and the environment we all share.

Along with their family of captive-born reptiles, this team of naturalists offer a once-in-a-lifetime experience, encouraging an up-close-and-personal opportunity with some of the world’s most exotic animals such as giant tortoises, crocodiles, snakes, lizards and frogs to mention a few.

During the  educational, interactive live stage show visitors learn about the habitat of these reptiles and about protecting them for future generations.

“The fate of most of these amazing creatures lies in our hands and the secret lies … in education,” says Safari Jeff.

This highly entertaining show not only features live animals but a multi-media outlet of large, flat-screen televisions, lights, sound, life-sized dinosaur bone replicas, original art work and creative props.

After the show, people are given an opportunity to get close to the animals, take their own pictures with them, and have Safari Jeff and Shannon sign autographs.

In January the naturalists filmed a television series in the forests of South America.

Their renowned show has been featured on national television, and in newspapers, magazines and radio.

They have also published colourful adventure books.
