Animal Atlas is a half-hour educational wildlife show that "takes children on a tour of discovery, uncovering the secrets of how animals live and thrive. Young viewers meet animals from the familiar to the astounding, and the domesticated to the wild, including the diverse creatures of the African savanna, the finned and flippered of the big deep, and the colorful cast of the equatorial rainforest."[this quote needs a citation] The series is produced by Longneedle Entertainment, LLC, a subsidiary of Bellum Entertainment Group. It premiered in national syndication in 2004, and its tenth season began airing in 2013. As of January 2013, Bellum had produced over 230 high-definition episodes of Animal Atlas, and fourteen related DVD titles.
