The episodes join three brothers, their cousin, and their dog Ryan as they discover creatures, solve mysteries with science, and learn about the creatures that live in Southwestern United States. In each adventure the children also define a keyword, and learn some Spanish and Hindi. 

It’s been amazing to see how the kids light up, talking about a creature that they’ve seen, researched, and learned about. I’m excited to bring awareness of the nature right outside our doors to the San Diego community.   – L. V. O’Connell, Director, San Diego Creature Project
