Join Melissa as she dives deep into the weirdest, funniest, sciency-est ways in which animals intersect at humanity. How is a horse responsible for the FDA? How did fish farts nearly cause bombs to fly between Russia and Sweden? How did a pigeon save 194 soldiers in wartime? Why are honey bees trained to find unexploded landmines in Croatia? Let's go!
If you like Varmints, Planthropology, or Just The Zoo of Us, you will love Bewilderbeasts. Melissa mixes wild animals, humans, literature, history, and pop culture in a way that makes learning enjoyable. Fun for the whole family.
