    Spider Monkeys

    Spider Monkeys

    The day has finally come, listeners. Jaguar learns all about spider monkeys. Now, the question is - will he learn to love them so much that he won't eat them again? Listen to find out, as well as finding out about their amazing tails, their calls, and some pretty gross ways they have of deterring intruders.

    Elephants Pt. 2: Interview with Dr. Josh Plotnik

    Elephants Pt. 2: Interview with Dr. Josh Plotnik

    What animal is so big it takes to podcast episodes to cover it? The elephant! In this follow-up to our first elephant podcast, we interview Dr. Josh Plotnik, an elephant expert who studies sociality and empathy. We talk about the smartest thing Dr. Plotnik has ever seen an elephant do, whether elephants can recognize themselves in a mirror, how they show empathy, and more.

    Elephants (Part I)

    Elephants (Part I)

    We have been wanting to do elephants for SO long. Just recently, we got a slide show presentation from listener Emily that really inspired us to get moving on it!
    In this episode, we chat about elephants with Grady's friend Finn. We talk about how smart they are, the ways they communicate, how they show empathy, how big they are, how much they poop, and lots more. 
    Later this week, we will be speaking with Dr. Josh Plotnik, who studies elephants and how they socialize. Stay tuned!

    Blue Tailed Day Geckos with Dr. Travis Hagey

    Blue Tailed Day Geckos with Dr. Travis Hagey

    Back at what seems like the dawn of time (i.e., two months ago when the kids were still at school),  Clara was working on a pollinator project for her second grade class.  Clara chose the blue-tailed day gecko. But when she started researching it, she found that there was almost no information out there about them!
    Luckily, we discovered the Skype a Scientist program, where we were connected to Travis Hagey. Dr. Hagey is an expert on day geckos (though he has not yet studied the blue tailed day gecko) and he taught us a lot about these amazing animals – like that they can drop and regrow their tails, that they probable traveled on the side of ... something (a log?) to get to the island they live on now, and why that commercial Gecko isn’t really super accurate.
    We learned a lot from Dr. Hagey, and had a super good time too.  We hope you will as well!
    As always, we love to hear from you! Email as coolfactsaboutanimals@gmail.com or tweet us @coolanimalspod.
