Animal Jam Alphas = Real People!?

Hey Jammers!

Did you know that the six main Alphas (Sir Gilbert, Liza, Cosmo, Graham, Greely, Peck; excluding Tavie) were actually named after some real life scientists and explorers?

Today we're going to be learning a little bit about these famous people. Not only are they important for what they did, but they're also important because our beloved Alphas were named after them.

Liza, the panda Alpha, was named after Eliza Scidmore. Eliza was an American writer, photographer, and geographer, and was the first female board member of the National Geographic society.


Sir Gilbert, the tiger Alpha, was named after Gilbert M. Grosvenor, the editor for the National Geographic magazine for ten years and the creator of Nat Geo Kids.


Cosmo, the koala Alpha, was named after the place where very first meeting of the Nat Geo society: the ''Cosmos Club''.


Graham, the monkey Alpha, was named after Alexander Graham Bell, the inventor of the telephone, and one of Nat Geo's four main founders.


Peck, the bunny Alpha, was named after Annie Peck, a female mountaineer for the Nat Geo society.


Greely, the wolf Alpha, was named after Adolphus Washington Greely, an American Arctic explorer and Nat Geo founder.



I hope you found this post at least a tad interesting. Have a great day, y'all! ^.^

  1. I found this out when I read the insiders guide.

    By the way, the insiders guide makes TONS of mistakes. Like, they call a crocodile a fox o.O

    Heh, I still call Graham Lukas Graham... I don't know why. I created it for one drawing and it stuck.
    I wonder if the other alphas, like Tavie, Atlas etc are named after people too.. Hmm
