-- Two Weeks of Holiday Cheer Begins Monday, December 16 --

(Silver Spring, Md.) - At Animal Planet, the holidays are a 'claus' for celebration! The network is on track to top its record-breaking 2012. To thank its loyal fans and avid viewers, Animal Planet gives the greatest gift of all: a jolly, two-week-long HOLIDAY BEST FEST filled to the brim with all the holiday trimmings.

Beginning on Monday, December 16, and continuing through Sunday, December 29, HOLIDAY BEST FEST makes spirits bright with daily marathons of the network's standout series and specials, culminating each night with 9 PM (ET/PT) premieres of special holiday-themed episodes of fan-favorite series, including: CALL OF THE WILDMAN, MONSTERS INSIDE ME, MY CAT FROM HELL, NORTH WOODS LAW, PIT BULLS AND PAROLEES, TANKED, TOO CUTE!, and TREEHOUSE MASTERS.

The celebration kicks off with an extended cut of 2013's most-watched telecast, MERMAIDS: THE NEW EVIDENCE. Animal Planet also airs a special episode of FINDING BIGFOOT, where the team travels to Nepal and searches for the elusive snowy creature, the abominable snowman.
