The Kratt Brothers

Step aside, Crocodile Hunter. The Kratt Brothers are here. The self-proclaimed "creature adventurers" are bringing their tales of animal encounters, wilderness experiences and world travels to the Baltimore Zoo this weekend. Chris and Martin Kratt serve as hosts of the PBS wildlife shows Kratt's Creatures, for school-age children, and Zoboomafoo, for preschool-age children. At the zoo performance, visitors of all ages are encouraged to ask questions. Autograph-signing sessions will take place after each performance.

The Kratt Brothers perform at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at the Baltimore Zoo, Waterfowl Lake Pavilion, Druid Hill Park. Zoo admission is $10; $6 ages 2-15 and seniors; free for ages under 2. Call 410-366-LION.

FOR THE RECORD - In yesterday's LIVE section, information about the Kratt Brothers autograph-signing sessions at the Baltimore Zoo was incorrect. The sessions will take place only after the final 1 p.m. performances on Saturday and Sunday. The Sun regrets the error.
