108: Tuatara

The beak headed baby godzilla that scooted its way into our hearts. He isn't a lizard!!! I'm not a monkey!!! Pay attention. This little man is going to blow your mind.

We answer questions like: Wait, what, is the tuatara really not a lizard? Why is the tuatara the way that it is? Where can I find one? How many rows of teeth does he have. How many eyes does the tuatara have? What is going on with it's genitals. Is this finally about the illuminati? Why did it take so long to mention the illuminati.  Also, is the tuatara nocturnal and how old do they live to be?

107: Colobus monkey

This week we learn about the colobus monkey! This thumb-less monochromatic man had us asking questions like: why do they have a ruminant style digestive system? Is life harder without a thumb? Why are they considered holy in some parts of Africa? According to the colobus, what are the best ways to socialize with friends post-pandemic? And why do their babies look exactly like Voldemort?

 

Join us to find out the answers to these questions, and more!

A little man! We asked for something ugly and you delivered. Come learn about the smallest armadillo. Do we like it or hate it? The jury is still out. We both have worked with dillos in past and it didn't go that well. Also, we chat about some cool news about Rat Raves, stick around to the end to hear what's up.

 

We answer questions like: Hey, what's a pink fairy armadillo? Is it just Donald Trump's wig come to life? Is it able to be defeated? What does the fairy armadillo eat? Why is it pink? Would we rather think about fingernails or lick tissues? What are idioms anyway? Is the pink fairy armadillo endangered?
