Call of the Jungles (Russian: Зов джунглей) was a TEFI-awarded Russian children's game show created and hosted by Sergei Suponev. Was aired on Saturdays for two years from 1993 on Channel One. In 1995 it was brought back to be hosted by Pyotr Fyodorov Sr. for 1997 and 1998, and Nikolai Gadomsky between 1998 and 2002. Music for the show was composed by Viktor Prudkovsky and Sergei Suponev performed the opening theme music "Djungli Zovut" (Russian: Джунгли зовут, lit. "Jungles Are Calling").
The contestants were split into two teams of four called "The Predators" and "The Herbivores." Each player was associated with an animal, printed on their T-shirt which included, for the Predators, a crocodile, lion, panther and a leopard. The Herbivores team consisted of an elephant, panda, koala and a monkey.
