Podcast Episode 36 Animal Geeks – Tarantulas

This week we set about dissecting a Mouse Spider.  We have a general look at Tarantulas aka Mygalomorph spiders.  We fire up the time machine for a quick look at spider evolution in the Triassic. Harri enjoys the extra oxygen available but decides that the extra size that it gave insects and arachnids might be a worry.

Podcast Episode 33 Animal Geeks – Spinosaurus and Sauropods

This week we are firing up the time machine and heading back 150 million years to what is now North Africa. Harri has her heart set on riding a Spinosaurus.  It has been busy week at  SeaDog Vet Services dealing with a crocodile attack and Twit the barking owl, and Xanthe has been making a start on her PADI open water dive ticket.  Somehow we manage to morph this into a discussion of Sauropod anatomy. Spinosaurus_skull
