Happy World Jaguar Day!
Not to be confused with International Jaguar Day, we celebrate World Jaguar Day with Jaguar, his best friend Lunch the spider monkey burrito, and the rest of the crew.  Not a lot of learning in this one, but lots of giggles. 
VERSUS! Anaconda v. Salt Water Crocodile
Two kings of reptiles meet in our mock meetup ... anaconda versus crocodile (versus Jaguar). First, learn cool facts about the anaconda and salt water crocodile, and then let us know if you agree with our crowned winner(s).  Thanks to our Patreon sponsors James and Millie!

Arctic Animals with Dr. Maarten Loonen
During our research of the arctic fox, we discovered Dr. Maarten Loonen, a biologist who studies in the Arctic Circle. We learned so many cool things that we hadn't known about before, not just about the arctic fox but about other animals, too. Like the amazing journey of the arctic tern, and how to tell whether Rudolph is a boy or a girl reindeer.  We hope you enjoy listening as much as we enjoyed speaking to Dr. Loonen. 
Arctic Fox
Ready to learn about the pint-sized, fluffy-tailed arctic fox? Yes, the arctic fox is adorable. But it’s also tough. It's highly evolved to withstand the -50 degree temps of the arctic circle. We’ll learn about these traits and more facts that make these animals so cool in this episode. Thanks to our $10 Patreon sponsor Tessa for the suggestion!

We’ve got tshirts, sweatshirts, and some other fun stuff at our Zazzle store here: Want to get a glimpse of how cute they are for yourselves? Check out this video of a young arctic fox learning how to pounce: Finally, we hope you check out our buddy Dan Saks and his musical, silly, genius podcast Noodle Loaf.

In this episode, we learn about one of the most endangered animals in the world, the vaquita. Vaquitas are the smallest existing porpoise and there are only about 10 o them left. We learn about the vaquita, the reason why they are in such danger, and how to help. We meet with two vaquita experts – Dr. Barbara Taylor and conservationist Jonathan White – to help us better understand the plight of the vaquita. Be sure to check your feed for our stand-alone interviews with them too. Thanks to listener Max for bringing the vaquita to our attention.

Jaguar Presents: All About Cooking (Vegetarian Version)
Unfortunately for Jaguar, the cassowary escaped. So this all about cooking is all vegetarian.
