<br>Animal-expert Jack Hanna entertains at Stranahan


Jack Hanna left a crowd of 1,400 thoroughly entertained Thursday night.

How could he not with visual aids like these: an elegant cheetah, a two-toed sloth, a sauntering flamingo, an albino python (it has 220 fishing-hook-like teeth), a Siberian lynx, and several film clips of animal adventures.

At the Stranahan Theater, Hanna kicked off the new Authors! Authors! season, which is sponsored by The Blade and the Toledo-Lucas County Public Library. Clad in his trademark khakis and wide-brimmed hat, he paced the stage while delivering a commentary that had almost as many laughs as it did animal facts.
