Chris Kratt is a member of the Wild Kratts crew and the younger of the two Kratt Brothers. Together, he and his brother Martin Kratt are the main protagonists of Wild Kratts. Chris is the more sensible and analytical of the two, and is characterized by the color green.


Chris is a middle aged man of average height (he is shorter than his older brother, Martin), with bulkier body, tan skin, brown eyes, and dark brown hair with the bangs spiked up. His usual attire consists of khaki shorts, hiking boots, a white undershirt and a green sweater with a neck-length zipper and black stripes running across the sides, with the sleeves rolled up; he typically wears his Creature Power Suit over this outfit. Chris's leg calves are bulkier like his brother.

In "Polar Bears Don't Dance", while adventuring in the Arctic, Chris wore a green jacket, jeans and boots, as well as with his Creature Power Suit. During underwater adventures, he wears a wetsuit. In "Bass Class", neither he nor Martin actually wear their hiking boots, remaining barefooted throughout the episode.


Chris is very similar to his older brother, Martin. He is smart, curious, and loves making jokes and pulling pranks. But unlike his brother, Chris likes being organized, careful, responsible, and tries to carefully think things through before jumping to conclusions. He is also more technically inclined, patient, attentive, and focused than his brother, and is quick to notice details, however he can also be clueless as well as shown in "Mystery of the Squirmy Wormy" and "Little Howler". There are also times when he gets overexcited about discovering new creatures as seen in "Octopus Wildkratticus" and "Mosquito Dragon". His childish, little brother side is shown more in the beginning of "Fossa-Palooza", when he refuses to leave Madagascar without seeing a fossa until Martin brings up their mom's unhappiness when they missed Mother's Day once. There is also a time when he is careless, as seen in "Opossum in my Pocket" where he unknowing left his backpack in the forest, because he had to rush back to the Tortuga before sunset and then he didn't notice about it until he got back to the Tortuga. In addition, while no one was at the forest, someone took his backpack.

His catchphrase is "Living free and in the wild!", with some variations in certain episodes.


Chris travels with his brother and their friends in the Tortuga, to learn about and save animals. He has extensive knowledge of various creatures, as he is a professional biologist. He is also very athletic, possessing exceptional acrobatic skills, as seen in "Flight of the Draco". He can also snowboard, water ski, and "manta board".
