In a new format this week we have a look at a veterinary case of the week, Jet the American Bulldog who took on a Taipan. We head back 60 million years in the Land Rover Time Machine to have a look at the largest snake ever to have lived, Titanoboa. Our new business website is up at Seadog Veterinary Services. We also went for a sail out to the Great Barrier Reef and Xanthe and Harri give us a report on the wildlife we saw.
Harri and Duncan put the venom vs poison debate to the Animal Geeks test. We look at our favourite venomous and poisonous animals, and work out the difference. Vader, the Animal Geeks Rat, joins us for a special guest appearance.
In a special midweek episode we look at Humpback Whales. We look at whalewatching, breeding patterns and all the unique features that make Humpbacks such special whales.
Episode 6 Animal Geeks- SnakesThis week we discuss Australia’s snakes from the Brisbane Science Museum. We look at the Red-bellied Black Snake, the Eastern Brown and the Coastal Taipan in detail with some serious off topic discussion from Harri on the dangers of Swiss Army knives.
This week we have a special episode with Xanthe, who is heading back to New Zealand next week. We look at the amazing world of Elephants; including some common myths and misconceptions.
This week we look at Ticks, with a brief foray into 90 million year old rats. #venom #wildlife
