Explore the animal kingdom and get to know more about its various species with AnimaLife TV, a kid-friendly animal show that promises to capture its viewers with a fresh and exciting take on the world of animals.
Hosted by known trendsetters Tim Yap and Divine Lee, AnimaLife TV encompasses four segments. The show sets its scope to a broader perspective, exploring not only about pets and the domesticated animals, but also the exotic and wild—all in a gentle manner fit for the young and the young at heart.
For its pilot episode, Yap and Lee unleash their sweet spot for animals unbeknownst to many, revealing a persona that is more than what meets the eye. A known party-goer and eventologist, Yap shares his cat-lover side in AnimaLife TV. He takes pride in his two puspins or pusang pinoy pets, namely Juanita, a stray cat turned celebrity pet on Instagram; and Pringles, a rescued kitten he received from a friend.
But even before Juanita and Pringles came to his life, Yap has also taken care of a number of animals, ranging from dogs to fish and even pythons, all while growing up. He also supports animal welfare related activities and has initiated lobbying of public places, such as malls, to become more pet-friendly.
“For me, we are all beautiful creations of God, we’re all creatures meant to co-exist in this beautiful world. I believe animals and humans are meant to be together, creating harmonious relationships to make this world better place,” Yap shares.
Certainly, with his fun-loving and outgoing personality, Yap completes the Bet Ko, Pet Mo segment of AnimaLife TV, which showcases celebrities and their pets, making it more exciting with pet-friendly gimmicks. Also featured in the segment is the Kuya Tim’s Magic Box Challenge, where host Yap engages in out-of-the-box challenges with guest celebrities.
Meanwhile, Lee strips off her fashion model and businesswoman image in AnimaLife TV to reveal her innate soft spot for dogs.
Lee owns seven canines, a few of them named after her favorite food – Pritchon and Bagnet. And like Yap’s Juanita, Lee’s pets have become the apple of the eye of the netizens, all because of their unique names. What’s more, Lee owns a doctor dog, Pritchon, which she brings to child centers to help the kids with cancer ease the pain of battling their illness.
“Actually, it’s very therapeutic for the kids that they have someone or something to play with. Having animals around makes the children develop a sense of responsibility and a sense of purpose. It’s definitely good to have Pritchon around for a couple of hours,” Lee says.
In AnimaLife TV, Lee delves on a more serious take on animals with Ask Ate Divs segment, where she, along with an expert, tackles about animal and pet issues, such as health, hedgehog cage requirements, behavior, and good grooming. Lee presents advices and solutions to pet owners, and at the same time, teaches the kids the proper care for animals.
Other segments of AnimaLife TV include Happy Hayop where viral videos, memes, and photos of various animals are showcased and where viewers can send in videos of their own pets; and AnimaLife Trivia which provides viewers a chockfull of quick facts to get to know more about animals, be it domesticated or wild.
