A message of thanks from Mike Searle Creator and Executive Producer of Animal X.

We have received a great deal of support in making Animal X Classica (as series one and two have become known) and Animal X The Natural Mystery Unit, and on behalf of all the people who worked on the series, I would like to thank everyone who contributed.

It wouldn't be the success it is without the hundreds of people who unselfishly gave their time to help.

The eye witnesses. The scientists and experts. The researchers and animal lovers. The Wildlife parks and animal sancturaries. The Universities and Museums. The Doctors and Professors. Thank you.

More importantly however, I thank the you, the viewer for watching Animal X. It makes me happy that we have so many fans from all over the world.

A special thanks to Jennifer Wilson, Nigel Swettenham, Melenie Ambrose, Carolyn Bertram, Ingo Helbig, Matt Charles and especially the late Tony White, all of whom had huge creative input into Animal X.

Also to Bill Clough

I would also like to thank and acknowledge the following organisations.

Animal X The Natural Mystery Unit, and Animal X Original, series 2 were co-productions with Discovery Communications Incorporated for Animal Planet. We have received a great deal of support from DCI in the making of these two series. I thank in particular Kelly Lueschow for much, but especially her trust and enthusiasm.

Mercury Media International's principal Tim Sparke has been involved with Animal X since the beginning. His support and the support of his team has been crucial to the success of Animal X. Thanks Tim.
