There are things that we can do in our own backyards we could create amphibian friendly environments by providing clean water hiding places and insects to eat that means not using insecticides all your yard we can also not pollute and it's really important to be a responsible pet owner the contamination that gets in our waterways from our dogs and cats waste is actually toxic for the animals that live there. Lease scoop your poop and to help. The frogs conserve water wherever we are whether at home at school or work and we all need to address climate change by reducing our own personal use of fossil fuels like oil and coal and natural gas. Dinka the frogs. Be an amphibian champion. You can learn more about at the children's hours website under this episode page frogs and toads tower is.

"Lookie flat the state funding Snow Mountain Snow Mountain me even in Snow Mountain carousels Zona Yeah and you guys mentioned she looks a little Brown but compared to some other transplant she's actually pretty light in color that's how she gets that name Arizona Blonde She's holding a Tarantula live in our studio yes we still have a snake live in our studio it's kind of creepy around here you're listening to our radio we'll be right Sir and uh-huh yeah FELA Kuti from a CD called many things and you're into the children's hour and today in studio were talking about unappreciated animals and so we brought in the Science Education Coordin- eater from the Albuquerque biopark Bethany done and in the studio were discussing all kinds of unappreciated animals and one thing we're discussing we were talking before the break Mosquitos are also we're talking about the greatest predators in the world of course which are the dragonfly and but mosquitoes one of unappreciated animal for sure they spread disease they bite somebody else tell me something else you don't got mosquitoes they annoy you yeah the enormous right they they also do a whole bunch of things in the water they have all sorts of weird looking larvae in fact about mosquitos only the females by the males will actually eat like the Jews from the actes and other plants oh I never knew that young and one reason that when you see a mosquito biting you just know that they are doing so to get nutrients and minerals for their babies the eggs the females are doing that so they can get all the great stuff that we have for their babies so they're doing it for a good cause I see so you're doing a good job trying to get us to appreciate the existence of Mosquitoes Bethany done do you at the Oh park appreciate mosquitoes Guinot I'm sure some people do I'm not a huge fan of mosquitoes I don't know if I ever will be but I will admit I'm pretty impressed you know by their adaptation so I'm from Tennessee see and we have lots of water there it's very wet and so you know I always grew up with a ton of mosquitoes around so when I moved to New Mexico which is the desert and everyone was telling me how bad the mosquitoes were in the summer I was like I can't be that bad they're just from the desert they're not used to mosquitoes they're just you know making aww nothing but I was wrong we have some very heavy mosquito populations especially down by the river and so I'm not a huge fan of mosquitoes but I am very impressed what they can do with such a small amount of water they're pretty incredible there are many other loathesome teachers out there that listeners gave us suggestions about including and this one is hard 'cause I kinda like these guys but not if I'm swimming in the ocean sharks sharks are certainly unappreciated. They're scary they seem to buy we've all seen that you know like donut donut don't we all get afraid of sharks yeah and gap please she'll only about thirteen truck bites happen a year in the US and most of those shark bite aren't fatal and shark will only bite you like it bites you is probably not gonNA keep on in 'cause you're disgusting like seals so yeah we're disgusting Yeah my accompany her Mike Yeah so I know that sharks are good because like if we have sharks are ocean would be would be very very very like messy wouldn't be clean the sharks so the dead animals that die for a p from not like shirt animals that killed by for whatever reason in the ocean yeah like not like Mike let's say plastic bags got killed from plastic bag in the ocean the shark would come in pick it up in eat it so they don't WanNa Lake they actually help the environment so you're saying they're kind of like the vultures of the ocean they kind of keep it clean in this way interesting yeah please I probably compare them more to hyenas in that way because there are both predators yes and hunt a whole bunch and are very important to the ecosystem but also are good at cleaning up after other animals who just can't finish a kill or an animal who died of sickness and then just fly floating around that's fascinating and you know I hadn't even had hyenas on the list but I do have coyotes on the list and I guess I have a personal thing about coyotes because they've been killing my chickens lately and I don't really know oh you know I know I'm living in a place for cody's normally live but people don't like coyotes Bethany done what you say about I know the Albuquerque biopark is as and when we say coyotes we can also bring wolves to this the bio park is part of a vital wolf-restoration project here in the South West and what do you say that people who say why would you reintroduce wolves nobody likes wolves they're terrible why would you say no no so I think something that's important to remember is that one of the things we've mentioned a couple of times that we don't like mice when they're in our home rate where we don't like coyotes when they're in our ARD but people's habitats keep growing but our native animals habitats are not right they're staying the same marsh shrinking so as we are expanding into wolves these predators habitats that's part of their home in their territory now what I will say it about that in particular is as a Apex Predator wolves play an extremely important role in the ecosystem and when those predators are taken out the ecosystem we see it affected in a lot of different ways so that's kind of true of sharks to write like they are in Predator in their system mm-hmm and we're seeing a great reduction of sharks right now yeah exactly and so and looking at animal populations if there is a sudden drop in in Predators primary consumers that can do consumers any of those things that we're GonNa see a effect all the other parts of the food web right it be the ability for plants to grow or for maybe a rise and diseases like we were talking with mice snakes so things like that so I think one of the things about these animals that people deem loathsome is that they're just ones that we don't know as much about maybe or maybe you just haven't seen one before or for example like this tarantula it lives mostly on the ground so you don't see it until you're standing right next to it right and then it Kinda spooks you and they're like Dude I've been here the whole time isn't that the truth well Bethany done she's the science education coordinator at the Albuquerque biopark around of applause for you thank you so much for being with Gunnar Madsen just hey most Muslims muscles buzzing you Musky of buzz buzz buzzing my pay it saw I need a bike hungry friend Tiny most every time I see the cover the snoring just they will hardly even know I'm there are no they won't this how sweet free talk amy I watch as it allows you missed me you bloody good dry on and off the children's hour was amp produced by Katie I don't engineering support from Unrest Martinez Cure The sunspots studio Jerry Totta at K.

"We are broadcasting today from the sunspots solar studio Oh and in the studio with us is our friend from the Albuquerque biopark Bethany done she's the science and education coordinator and so she he really is the one who goes out to schools and toxic kids all the time about all the critters that she brings and today focusing on unappreciated animals lullaby Santa Cockroaches sure spite all those all those unappreciated loathsome creatures Bethany is holding a snake great now and a gopher snake and it's it looks very content Eh Bethany let's get into some of these other creatures that people are talking about in the room here like shirt equittoes tarantula will block aren't translators I just have tranches on the brain today but yeah what do you guys know about black widows do you want to tell us I'm will they have this red spot that kind of looks like a bow tie and they like they shoot Ben Yeah so they do have 'em rain so they'll inject it into what they're eating but you know it's fun is a lot of times animals are named after what they look like or where they're from or something like to do or behavior they have so you mentioned that black widows have a red spot but what's their main color black then why are they called black widows what do they do that gives them that name you will usually kill their husbands all right well they make there may after words right so that's how they get that name black widow Bethany don't all spiders do that well you know it depends on how quickly the male is sometimes if they can get away they'll be just fine but yeah a lot of spiders will do that they often times is the female might eat the male anybody know why they do that please somebody tell us what do you think yeah go ahead for the first thing the male actually trashes the female's web it prevents other males from getting there well what what a mean thing to do however there's another the female is about to go into a period where it's trying to create eggs so this point she needs extra energy so the male by the mail giving himself up or the female eating him that helps ensure the survival of his kids exactly yes oh she's the one who's going to be creating these eggs and some of our arachnids might even take care of their young for a tiny bit of time so she does need more urgency than are male right so he's done his job they have made it he's like yes I will carry on to the next generation with these eggs that will be laid and so she's the one who needs that energy so he's doing a good thing right but that's one of the reasons why they'll usually try and eat something because they're hungry and they need something to help them create those eggs so that's how they live but why should we want them in our world I mean it's sometimes I think to myself when I see a black widow and here in New Mexico just for our listeners around the country it's how many it please say F. You yes I've seen a black widow if you've seen a black widow in your house yeah many many times okay so see this is not uncommon for us in New Mexico to see black widows in our house and sometimes I think to myself well if I smashed that black do I see in my house at least in the sake of evolution like that genetic speed that line of black widow the I thought it was okay to live in my house they can't go on because like their babies aren't GonNa be like Oh yeah mom was right this is a great place to live right in the bathroom of oh Katie's house so now that's kind of a mean way of looking at it but I think most of us probably smoked black widows when we see them in our house I know what do you do ask her I don't I just leave ner so does my son he leaves them there Yep Yep go for it a lot of the times we'll take outside and for some of the people who want said animals live you can get a cup and a piece of paper trap the so in the Cup slide the paper under I'm taking outside so they can continue to live on but not in your house I am so glad you brought that up Bethany don't they just come right back because their territorial or will there really move into a new place you know I think a lot of animals are pretty adoptable into their situations now I'm not a black widow expert I will say that so I can't speak for sure on that matter as to whether or not they'll come back but if an animal is able to find a good habitat that has the things they need to survive right so shelter food water space safety all those things then why would they need to move somewhere else right so like you said if you're putting them somewhere outside Reid if they're able to find a spot outside that's a lot easier to get to then trying to get back into your house they're most likely just going to stay there because they have everything they need how about some other creatures that we find yes please centipedes can we talk about centipedes we can talk about centipedes so I gotta be honest is so I am not from New Mexico so as far as you haven't had the pleasure of having the pleasure of having centipedes around yeah house so I would love to hear your experiences with centipedes please anyone I was in the bathtub one time and a centipede crawled out that extra drain of the bathtub al I was in the bathtub and when we talk about centipedes crawling out the drain maybe some people in their minds are picturing millipedes which are like an inch long and really small centipedes here about six to eight inches or longer very like all these legs that move independently they're just creepy dance I heard the story that if you say animal's name comes to your house Oh no so now you're talking about these creepy they're all gonna come to the studio here because we did this so once this woman she went will will to Mexico and she said I can talk about any kind of animal I want they will come to my house but then when she got back a million was all was like a centipede or millipedes centipede was really long and she threw on a huge bull on in in the sides were still moving yeah yeah my dad has had experiences like one time there is a centipede in our house and it was in his bed and it disappeared and we couldn't find it and we never found it and he's also Annabella once A centipede crawled out of our bathroom women to a box lift up the box and it it disappeared or something yes now it's still there what are some of the good things about some yeah that's what I wanna know and Bethany you want to defer to zen over here yeah yeah then was trying to explain to us why centipedes matter before we went live on the air and we're skeptical but let's hear it then anyway so if you are in fact predators right they control populations of things that sometimes we don't like they we things sometimes cockroaches right we don't like cockroaches Ui and and they will eat other things like crickets who make all sorts of noise during the night and they're not they're not all bad they're not add and what they also do is they're only trying to survive they're not here to particularly hurt you and they would rather run away from you Dan that has not been my experience but okay the run towards me sometimes when they're when it looks like they're running toward you though think about this you're trying to take the path released resistance right you're trying to get away from you from them as fast as possible all centipedes GonNa see all my gosh that's the past path of least resistance as well on my Gosh I better go over there and so it's not really trying to chase you it's trying to escape from you just poor eyesight does not tell it that much unfortunately is mostly nocturnal and if you see them in your garden keep them they're they're good for you they can find all of the animals that will eat your garden plants and they'll help you well we talking about creatures that were not so fond of and Bethany done is here from the Albuquerque biopark she's the science education coordinator in the background we're gonNA bring up some wookey foot and in the meantime Bethany will you pull out your Tarantula I can certainly bring her out for you all stick with us on the children's hour tarantulas coming up and would understand take off uh-huh uh all sold when you bring it into the hot air it does massive damage from a CD called out of the jar that's Wookey foot and you're listening to the Children's hour we Dr that was the snake catcher song by the way We're we're all trying to be calm as Bethany done here has tarantula crawling on her hand in our studio it's hairy anybody else wanted to describe this tarantula please yes anybody yes go for it go for it it's really eerie and it's kind of brown I wonder are those real hairs like our hair on her head it's not quite like our hair so these have a special name Anthony called already catering hairs and so what they do or they want are one of the Tarantulas adaptations for survival because lots of things like to eat translators right so these hairs actually have some barbs on them so if the transit feels threatened or is nervous or is feeling particularly Sassy that day what they'll do is they'll take their back leg and they'll rub it can stop part of their body that right there how she has some bald spots right there so she's been rubbing some of those hairs off right and so those go up into the air and then they can land on a predators face or even in their eyes or their nose and if they have barbs on them does that sound very comfortable no ray so that is something that they can do because then they're also very pitchy so it allows them to get away from their predators are hair doesn't do that right when we afflicted at just kinda stays where it is shen was gonna comment that a lot of people think that translators can shoot venom but I don't know if they can and early king hair thing actually helps them to repel a Predator instead of shooting venom right yeah and you know what Tarantulas are venomous and that means that they carry a toxin inside their body that bill inject into what they're trying to eat and just like our snake can't chew food neither can tarantulas so there's nobody here like milkshakes love look shakes or like you know when you go to the dentist you can only eat soft foods that you can slurp Afterwards sometimes right like yogurt milkshakes soup so you live off of that so for her what she'll do is when she finds her food she lays her web right and they were webs on the ground so stuff that she be eating will walk across her web she'll feel that she'll run out she'll grab them she might bite him that venom goes into their body and it starts kind of turn along the inside of the animal's body into Mush right now is she can slurp up she doesn't have to chew or food yes that's kinda awful it would be awful to die that way to be her I mean it's good for her she why why he or she wanting hold her I thought spiders don't like people well you know what that's an excellent question so her name is lady in lady here is another one of our program and so we do have native Tarantulas here New Mexico however I would never just go and pick one up off the ground right that's not very smart I don't know that Tarantula doesn't know me however lady here as a program animal she's actually from the Bulgarian we have at the biopark and she's been handled and around people for a really long time so that's one of the reasons why shoe so comfortable being held being on my hair can't yeah what species is she what species is excellent question she is an Arizona Blonde so where is she from yeah do you have a question Mike by once once I saw a trench on our front yard we're here I've hiked where I've been climbing along amount of rock face and stuck my hand above my head where I couldn't see and something crawled on me the and I climbed up to it and it was Tarantulas House and yeah that was you know we have innate instinct to be afraid of these guys but one of their favorite things to eat I understand is mosquitoes and that's another thing no it's not no not mosquitoes are a little bit small and hard to catch you're gonNA find dragonflies eating a lot more dragonflies eaters have fun fact about dragonflies sleaze dragonflies are the most successful Predator in the entire world wait yeah yeah so think about is big cats like Lions and tigers bears those aren't a big but they do go in that sentence you're right so what those guys those huge teeth and claws gratifications but you know they don't get food too often usually they have about a thirty percent success rate dragonflies have over ninety percent success rate so when they are going out and hunting for their food they're most likely going to be catching it right just pretty audible well we are talking with Bethany done. She's the science education coordinator at the Albuquerque Bio Park..

happy day Korea hi it's really is Milo seal notes in good morning it's Amadeus Aloha is Lucas on Abella hello everyone I'm so happy you're here today on the show we're talking about appreciated animals to can you think of any yeah no snakes don't nobody likes snakes senator nine widows cockroaches yeah half of a car most people don't like worms either well that song we opened with his about mice it was called mouse shower and I think about that song and I think I'm not crazy about having mice you're whispering I love mice yet but mice are like they're so damaging to a house like if you come into your kitchen and you saw mouse poop all over the counter we you be like Oh hey let's make a sandwich or no creepy still adorable they're adorable they're adorable but there are a lot of animals that are under appreciated or unappreciated totally and it turns out we need them then we were talking before we went on the mics centipedes yeah centipedes are pretty darn important to their own environment and they are pretty good at surviving for what they are and although a lot of people don't like them only trying to survive so that's a yeah that's true I mean you could say that about spiders Annabel you're talking about what's your what's your fear uh yes spiders why why tell tell me why it's the creepy leg I yeah how else yeah my segments yeah well be dare spiders because once my brother he came with a huge black widows and his hands to my mom and he was squeezing it wait what he was squeezing a black widow is your brother a little guy yes he's only five years old take but get by he didn't get big yeah he was lucky is lucky well he loves jobs those creatures one time my daughter was only two and she came to my bedside and woke me up out of bed and she said look vowed mouse and it was a cockroach and she had it right in my face and she let it go and it crawled bright towards me in bed I was half asleep like Oprah he's like wait wait I hope that's not a mouse so creepy critters but we need them in this world we're going to be talking with Bethany done and she's from the Albuquerque Bio Park and she's here right now does anyone want to describe what's going on in the studio right now please yes while she's holding a snake and I think it is gopher snake or a bull snake she's not eating she's not you know you're snakes Amadeus Bethany done is the science education coordinator from the Albuquerque biopark and she has indeed brought live snakes to our studio as well as Tarantulas sorry and I think we're GONNA get a chance to try to get over our fear of these animals but also try to understand more why we we even have why should we like them but in the meantime The News in the studio and he yeah please you're here Mike Mike Echoes shedding today what does that mean well well May luke shed their skin and sometimes they eat it you oh wow that can you imagine people I just try to imagine you have to shed or skin every so often and then you eat it Okay Yeah Yeah I mean I lost a couple of days ago hilly did the tooth fairy not yet not yet very underlay wall speaking of snakes I'm going to try and feed them today your snakes or at those Nick snake what do you feed your snake frozen mice frozen mice they don't move defrost them of course but you know they're dead though by the very they don't care that it's dead does not mind that much now also speaking of snakes I have a pet snake you do yes do you feed your pets snake dead mice to while we feed our pet snake live mice ooh yeah but not the cute ones so how do you get your life do you have a cat or something that brings you mice we just got to the pet store the pet store I didn't know you could buy live mice well you know you learn so much so much on the on the children's hour you're GONNA learn a lot more on the children's hour today one of our listeners I was asking people all over town for the last couple of weeks hey what's your low least favorite past of an animal and I kept getting the same answer aunts what do you think about ants tell me about ants yeah I think answer pretty amazing of how their entire you will have life is but I mean when you have around the House I pretty much impossible to get rid of they're very effective at what they do I'll say that Oh they're interesting but annoying they're also really strong for their size one of the great things about answer was they won't bother you that is if you don't bother them unless you wanted like eat butter and they're all over your butter your kitchen then they kind of bugged me I am a little bit actually had answered my pants did you dance no screen that takes a lot of time I went camping in I stepped in a pile of red ants and climbed inside boot ooh yeah I got we're seeing the ooh wow the fire ants in particular I mean sugar ants are annoying if they're on your butter on your counter but fire ants y fire ants and why should we love fire ants I I want to find out more and I think we are going to find out more right here on children's Hour this is coming off of Oh this is just a crazy song and so we decided to play it for you this is the aunt marching band right here on the children uh-huh uh-huh walking in the Bush please stay on the track and never wonder through the undergrowth 'cause it you're not observant you might serpent which could be quite unpleasant for you I've assist the situation I simply want to say be cautious when you're in his habitat though is not aggressive he's inclined to be possessive and you can hardly blame snake for that for that honestly night or you're making a big mess like over the sale of your protection I suggested to change direction get out of the but good for goodness sake step on a snake river is maybe more than he can take and you'd feel the same way too if some must have gone you while you're lying in the sunshine half awake because too old job and Steph upon a snake have you ever wondered what it's like to be AAC and have to slip and slide along the ground it really can't be funny to be stuck there on your tummy out a pair of legs to get you around you around so you see it isn't easy to be so misunderstood and try to see it from his point of view it's really rather sad when the whole world thinks you're bad but I don't really hate Joe Blake you childlike do you I wanNA snake you're making a big mess I have your protection I suggest you change direction get out for good goodness sake an honest surprise maybe more than he can take they feel the same way if you're lying in the sunshine awake me kind Sir Don Spencer from put to my Oh kids presents animal playground don't ever step upon us snake and we can't really step upon a snake right now because Bethany done from the Albuquerque biopark is holding the snake in our studio and it's it's a mighty fine snake and deep bethany what kind of snake is this so this is coil he is one of our program animals at the bio park so he goes out and an accident ambassador to everyone around the state so they can get to know him and more about snakes and he in particular is a gopher snake and see what his name again that his name is Coil Okay and coil is beautiful can someone described coil please listening audience yeah so anybody yeah go for it well for those who don't know gophers looks like he's a kind of a light shade of yellow with patterning similar to a rattlesnake we're not quite and the patterns are about Dark Brown to light Brown depending on which part of the snakes looking I think if I saw the snake out in the wild I would think that's a rattlesnake because it Kinda I mean I always think everybody's rattlesnake actually the wealth around here but he kind of has that Brown and that patterning looks a little straddle snaky is that is on purpose Bethany yeah and a lot of animals will mimic other animals right to make them look like they might be venomous or poisonous and things like that and so even sometimes shake his tail a little bit there's no rattle on here so I'm not brave enough to handle venomous snakes with just maybe our hands but you are brave enough without just your bare hands yeah you know that actually took a little while so we're talking about animals people aren't super appreciative of today When I first started working with animals I was not very comfortable with snakes so that's something that took a little bit of time for me so my friend helped me out and we start she would hold him in Iowa just you know just touch him fingers and worked my way up to actually holding a myself and then going into his habitat to pick him up so I do like snakes now and I'm always been very appreciate what they do for the environment but I must admit it wasn't always the biggest fan of holding them but we're good friends so what due snakes do for the environment yet does anybody know what snakes do for the environment yet you might tell us yeah what do they do so sometimes snakes armor because they'll be my centerfield eating crops and the snakes can go in and eat the mice and then like there's more food oh snakes here like tea a lot of animals that tend to reproduce really quickly like mice is one of them right sometimes they might eat some eggs eat mice to like you mentioned sometimes that can be a detriment to farmers and agriculture but also you know mice can carry some diseases right so if we think about these animals that eat those guys like our snake right here they're actually helping to prevent diseases from spreading so that's another great thing what they do for us in particular but as a Predator in the ecosystem they play a really important role with keeping a lot of other animal populations like those mice under control so people don't like mice as we mentioned earlier on the show I have to admit I think my super cute but I also had mice really damage things in so.

"It's so great. You're all here. So tell me what is to tell you. What's coming up on the show you paid a visit to the Santa Fe? Opera. Yes. Pretty incredible. Yeah. It was really cool to see everything there and see that it's more than just a building, like it's a whole community of people there.
