We have a Mystery guest in the house and we head back 50000 years to what is now modern Europe to have a look at Neanderthal Man. Twit the owl is going well at SeaDog Vets and we have been treating a Northern Blue-tongued Skink
We dust off our time machine to head back 10000 years to visit Beringia. Harri gets a bit freaked out at the thought of Smilodon (Saber-toothed tiger) attack. We discuss the migration of humans to modern day North and South America, Australia and Japan. Xanthe contemplates getting stuck in Beringia and the kind of Hunger Games-esque bow skills that would be required.
This week we indulge in a bit of Q & A about bugs. Somehow we also mention rhinos, body farms, savannahs, edible insects and maggots. Stories via Steve Backshall, Stuff You Should Know Podcast and Entomologist Alex Wild’s www.myrmecos.net
Harri recommends the Body Farm episode of Stuff You Should Know for some gross fun
Podcast Episode 26 Animal Geeks – Flying High Bird Sanctuary -It’s ANZAC Day in Australia. And we visited Flying High Bird Sanctuary near Childers on the Fraser Coast. Duncan, Xanthe, Harri and Monty check in from the main aviary and we talk about a selection of the more than 3000 birds on display. We meet Berri the Cassowary, giant macaws and have our ears nibbled by Rainbow Lorikeets. Closing music by Julie Collier, available for download from iTunes #cassowary #sanctuary
