A wickedly funny eco-thriller set on a TV reality show. Crocs, danger, men with guns: will anyone get out alive? Wahoo lives in a Florida zoo, but he’s not one of the animals. His dad is a zoo handler, and Wahoo is used to spotting killer critters in their backyard. But when Wahoo’s dad takes a job on a TV reality show, Expedition Survival, life gets scary. Within a day, the show’s inept star gets bitten by a bat and vanishes in a storm. Search parties head out and promptly get lost too. And then a gun-toting stranger shows up. It’s anyone’s guess who will actually survive Expedition Survival...
