Timon the Meerkat was best friends with Pumbaa the Warthog. Warthogs are one tough species. Living in Africa, they have evolved to survive in some of the harshest environments for any animal.

Episode 143: Magical Meerkats

February 18, 2020

We are under the weather here at All Creatures, so this week we went to the vault and pulled out an episode we did in August 2019 for our Patreon supporters. We were slated to do Warthogs, but instead, we will release Meerkat this week and follow it up with Warthog next week. Meerkats are beloved by many. These small mammals inhabit the southern reaches of Africa and survive in some harsh terrain. They have also evolved some incredible and endearing behaviors. Another amazing species to learn about.

This week leads us to another radical animal, the Electric Eel. By far one of the most incredible biological adaptations are this animal's ability to naturally produce electricity. We delve into the eels ability to produce a shock as high as 860 volts. By far one of the strongest shocks produced by any known animal. Listen and learn to be amazed by our natural world.

Ms. Mallory’s mission is to spark curiosity about wildlife, conservation, and local natural history while empowering others to do the same through public outreach, community conservation projects, and citizen scientist initiatives. As a wildlife educator, Mallory believes facts are better told through stories, curiosity should never be smothered, and the power of one should empower many. For over a decade, Mallory has invested her focus-and talents- in challenging the way people view our wildlife (see Fear2Fascination) and encouraging them to find their own niche in making the world a better place ( see Curious Conservationist). From documenting scientists’ stories in remote locations to to working alongside our nation’s youth, connecting with others is a key component to changing lives- and our planet.
