    Bonus: Interview with National Geographic Author and Wildlife Vet Dr. Gabby Wild

    Bonus: Interview with National Geographic Author and Wildlife Vet Dr. Gabby Wild

    In this bonus episode, the Cool Facts About Animals Crew gets the chance to speak with National Geographic author and wildlife vet Dr. Gabby Wild. We speak about her new book, How to Speak Animal, and learn a lot about the different ways animals communicate. Unfortunately, she couldn’t tell us how to tell our cat Fuzzy to stop bullying our other cats. Alphas gonna alpha. We think you’ll enjoy learning all sorts of fun animal communication facts, including how crickets can tell us the temperature, how sharks communicate through magnetic forces, whether ducks speak in a French accent, and lots more.

Love it!

I love the Koala episode and ,I love
Jaguar he is so funny! But I don’t like how he eats everything. Also Jaguar, if you are reading this just to warn you, you will get fat if you don’t stop eating all the prey you find. Bye!
