Think back to your MTV-watching days … remember Cribs? The show that took you inside the homes of Mariah Carey and Aaron Carter?
Well, Animal Cribs is sort of like that show mixed with Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. In each episode of this Animal Planet show, pet pad expert Antonio Ballatore and his team, including his bulldog Chewie, transform the cramped home of an animal lover into an impressive pet paradise.

In the new episode airing Nov. 17, Ballatore faces his most difficult challenge yet: turning a basement bursting with cages of prairie dogs, iguanas, birds, lizards and more — over 20 different species in all – into a beautiful mansion that meets every pet’s needs and cuts down on their owners’ 18-hour-a-week clean time.
Even with this formidable task ahead, Ballatore is excited to take on the challenge. Have a look at what he is working with in the clip above, and then tune in to see the impressive man cave he creates during renovations by watching Animal Cribs this Friday at 10 p.m. EST.
