Animal Planet Live was a live stage show, at the two Universal theme parks, and was inspired by the TV channel Animal Planet. It opened at Universal Studios Florida, replacing Animal Actors Stage in 2001, while the venue at Universal Studios Hollywood was opened and replaced Animal Actors School Stage in 2001. The show featured multiple animals performing stunts and tricks. Both were closed in 2006, and the Florida version was replaced by Animal Actors on Location, while the Hollywood version was replaced by Universal’s Animal Actors.
