Episode 217: Tuatara, A Living Fossil

Episode 217: Tuatara, A Living Fossil

May 5, 2021

We jump back to New Zealand to cover one of the most unique animals on our planet, the Tuatara. This is a true living fossil. They are the last of their kind, from an ancient order of reptiles, that has survived nearly 240 million years. Because they were isolated on New Zealand for nearly 85 million years, Tuataras survived mass extinctions and have changed little over that time. However, when humans first set foot on New Zealand nearly 700 years ago, the Tuatara was nearly driven to extinction1, albeit unintentionally. Pacific Rats hitched a ride with the early Polynesian settlers and drove many New Zealand species to extinction. Yet, while the Tuatara suffered due to the rats, they have survived and today are a species of focus by New Zealand, and are rebounding. A special podcast for a special species.

Episode 216: A Relic, the Malayan Tapir

Episode 216: A Relic, the Malayan Tapir

April 28, 2021

This week we talk about one of the world's oldest mammals, the Tapir. Specifically, we focus on the Malayan Tapir. The Tapirs are fascinating animals that have changed little over the past 30 million years. What makes them even more intriguing is, the Malayan Tapir lives in South East Asia, whereas the other species of Tapir live in Central and South America. While they have diverged nearly 20 million years ago, they differ little in their body composition or behaviors. We had so much fun chatting about these rather large herbivores. Sadly, all the species of Tapir are in serious decline and heading towards extinction. They are well worth learning about and fighting for.

Episode 215: Prickly African Crested Porcupines

Episode 215: Prickly African Crested Porcupines

April 20, 2021

In this week's podcast we head back to Africa and cover an iconic but often forgotten species, the porcupine. These rodents are masters of the defense and predators often come out on the losing end when they mess with these. African Crested Porcupines are just one of numerous species of Old World porcupines. Many other species of the Old World Porcupines inhabit other parts of Africa, Asia and Europe. The New World Porcupines inhabit North, Central and South America and interestingly enough are not that closely related to the Old World Porcupines. This is just another fascinating species we cover and hope you enjoy this one.

Episode 213: All American Alligator

Episode 213: All American Alligator

April 6, 2021

We welcome back Angie to this week's podcast covering the American Alligator. This species is near and dear to both of us as the "Gator" is the official mascot for the University of Florida. A tradition is any child born in Gainesville, Florida is known as a "Gator Baby." So this week, we dedicate this episode to our kids, who all are Gator babies! 

The Alligator is a massive apex predator native to North America. As a reptile, the Alligator has survived for tens of millions of years and was almost at risk of extinction in the mid 20th century. With focused conservation they have rebounded and are another conservation success story. Today there are over 5 million Alligators living in the United States alongside humans. They are a critical predator to our natural water ways and exhibit some incredible behaviors. We know you will enjoy learning about this special reptile.

Episode 212: Will Humans Go Extinct?

Episode 212: Will Humans Go Extinct?

March 30, 2021

This week Chris highlights the disturbing reports that have been circulating the last year on the massive loss of our biodiversity across the planet. In this week's podcast, he highlights some of the statistics that shows how our complex ecosystems across almost every biome are degrading quickly. From our oceans to our rainforests, to our very own fresh waterways, across the planet we are losing not only critical species across all taxa, but also the very environments that sustain life on Earth.  It leads to the question that is now making mainstream news, are humans causing their own extinction? Now, while all the news is horrific, there is always hope! He highlights some of the conservation heroes that have dedicated their lives to saving our planet and the many species that inhabit it, but also tells you what you can do to help. As a side note, we will be back soon with our regular species podcasts.
