Stamford students get in on the action as they get a chance to be amateur zookeepers when Jack Hanna visits “Maury” for recent taping.
STAMFORD, CT - Director Emeritus of the Columbus Zoo Jack Hanna entertained local Stamford students with his amazing animals at a recent taping of MAURY. The audience included almost 100 kindergarteners from Stamford’s Rogers International School who visited the show during an educational field trip.
 
Host Maury Povich calls Jack’s special guests as “the most exotic animals in the entire wild kingdom.” The students watched and learned about exotic animals such as Baby Servals, a Siberian Lynx, a Tamandua, a Seriama, and a Binturong. There were also some recognizable faces in the bunch such as the Albadbra tortoise, black-footed penguin, black bear cub and even an 18 foot-long reticulated python snake that took five animal trainers to carry in.

At the end of the show, Maury surprised the audience with gift bags full of stuffed animals, CDs, DVDs, Zoobooks and Zootles magazines, among other items so the kids could take their favorite animal friends home. 

This special episode of “Maury” airs on Friday, March 29 (check local listings).
