But the Humfreys also share their home with a few other pets - more than 2000 and each one of them needs care and attention 24 7. This isn't your average family home. It's a private zoo where human and animal sagas unfold on a daily basis. Chris and his wife Nicole work around the clock to keep their very extended family happy and healthy and manage their enthusiastic crew of zookeepers. Each week Chris will share with us this extraordinary life and his amazing knowledge of Australia's fauna. Follow Chris in this chaotic, animal-crazy series that captures the drama, the danger, the animal antics and the sheer exhilaration of Chris Humfrey's Wild Life. Every day, a new saga unfolds at the zoo. Every day there is something new to learn - even for Chris. In tonight's show - the natives need nurturing. It's not easy to feed and look after native animals, and at his private zoo, Chris Humfrey faces some unique problems. From finding just the right food for koalas, to caring for an orphaned baby kangaroo, there's never a dull moment. Chris takes to the air in an ultra-light plane to find just the right blue-gum leaves for his breeding koalas, as well as starting the delicate process of hand-rearing a joey that was lucky to escape a terrifying fox attack. To prevent future tragedies like this, Chris discovers an ingenious use for dingo poo.
