Snoop Dogg loves nature - especially when it’s smokable or edible. But it turns out the Doggfather’s love for the great outdoors extends well beyond cannabis, and he’s brought it to YouTube.

The legendary rapper behind such hits as “Gin and Juice” and “Who am I?” has launched a video series called Planet Snoop on his Merry Jane channel. It was no doubt inspired by his "Plizzanet Earth" sketches on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and furthered by an online petition encouraging Snoop to make the show. To date, it’s gathered more than 65,000 signatures.

In the first episode, Snoop offers commentary as a squirrel and a snake battle for supremacy. The profanity-laced play-by-play is delivered in a style only he can provide.

Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom, it’s not. It’s better.
