    Default Animal Planet Special: "Wild Appalachia" Feb 19, 10 PM ET

    Animal Planet "...has commissioned three "blue chip" wildlife documentaries about remote parts of the United States from Parthenon Entertainment. The three projects are the latest installments in the Bristol, UK-based prodco’s ‘Wild’ strand of natural history programs...", (one being "Wild Appalachia") which..."will delve into the forests of the Appalachian mountain region and its inhabitants..."


    I'm setting the over/under for mentions of "trout" at 1. (hope this isn't illegal)

    Thanks for letting us know, JoeFred! That's a great series. I'm really looking forward to watching it.

    No problem, Pat.

    I'm sure glad I didn't book the over/under on mentions of "fish" instead of just "trout." There were a few mentions of crayfish and several of "sardines." Please don't be alarmed that a invasive freshwater herring has been introduced to the park as the ones in the program were of the canned variety.

    Just to prove my southern-hood, I refer to the freshwater lobsters as "crawdads."

    How was the show overall? I didn't catch it and was wondering if it was worth looking up?

    I thought is was nicely done. Great bear, elk, salamanders, cicadas, etc., and time-lapse footage of foliage changing color. Having had a pet 'coon as a kid, I liked that part best. The little bandit would follow me for about a quarter mile to Roberson Creek* to dine on crawdads. I will never forget the tactics and sounds. Once full, he would follow me back to the barn.

    JoeFred,

    That is a great story about the raccoon. I would have loved to seen that.

    Reminded me about when i was a boy, Dad would always leave a bowl of dog food on our back porch facing the woods and feed 4 or 5 raccoons every night for years.

    But, even though we would be sitting right inside the screen door if you would have tried to get close they would have eaten you up.

    This was all way back in the day when things like that were not frowned upon.

    I to stayed up to watch the Animal Planet show, even though my bed time is usually around 9 o'clock. It was worth it.

    Thanks
