BEST BETS

1. Tony the Tiger forever! Or at least for the next five decades or so.

Join some zoo folks for an animal lecture entitled "Tigers in the 21st Century: Why tigers won't go extinct in the next 100 years." Starting at 7 p.m. Friday in the Children's Resource Center on the grounds of the Buffalo Zoo. Presented by Joshua Ginsberg of the Wildlife Conservation Society for $12. Students $8.

2. Start with four awesome Aussies in red, blue, yellow and purple. Add a green dinosaur who loves roses, a friendly pirate, a happy dog and a musical octopus.

Mix well with music and movement -- not to mention an educational twist -- and the result is The Wiggles, the hot children's entertainment group.

How hot? Say 15 million videos and CDs sold in the United States, Canada and Australia.
