    During our research of the arctic fox, we discovered Dr. Maarten Loonen, a biologist who studies in the Arctic Circle. We learned so many cool things that we hadn't known about before, not just about the arctic fox but about other animals, too. Like the amazing journey of the arctic tern, and how to tell whether Rudolph is a boy or a girl reindeer. ย We hope you enjoy listening as much as we enjoyed speaking to Dr. Loonen.ย

JAGUAR PLEASE READ THIS

Hi, Jaguar!
Youโ€™re bent on world domination, right? Well, I have an offer for you!
I would like to become YOUR weapons expert. My qualifications:
1. I can shoot a bow pretty well.
2. I can throw an ax very well.
3. I could, in theory, kill something with a sword.
In your next episode, please just say, โ€œHey Caroline, meow meow, I would like you to know that I have accepted/declined your offer of being my weapons expert. Meow meow.โ€

โ€”Caroline

P.S. I absolutely love your show! Itโ€™s animal facts and lots and lots and LOTS of laughs,
P.P.S. Please do an episode on orcas/killer whales or penguins.
