"Some people say it's on a ball and socket joint but technically it is very very flexible joint that basically doesn't keep the tendon going in one direction like ours does so it can bend sideways either way and it can also bend backwards and that finger is ideal if you like to eat bugs and grubs out of trees so they will chew in with the beaver lake teeth that the person nominated the mentioned and then they will get inside of wood and scoop out whatever grubber bugged. They want to eat with that amazing tapping finger speaking of delicious meals. That a creature might eat. I feel like going back to the opossums. A lot of people may associate opossums with trash for lack of a better term. Because they're scavengers right. I mean what is the life of an apostle like they are scavengers but they're also predators they're also forager's i call them the generalist of generalists. So you'll get mammal species where you know across the southeast shore. They eat a lot of different things that individuals will specialize or the front one particular thing they want to eat. You look at just one opossums stomach content. So that's really showing what they ate in a day or two. It's just an entire evolutionary tree. Birds plants slugs mice grasshoppers unit. They've eaten it. I think they get the bad rap that they're associated you trash because they're in our environment and you know they have really don't get noses they can pick up everything on issues throughout some tasty food. They will be there but that's not going to be the only thing they're eating and i also have a hypothesis that i needed to test. I think they're also yields in the trash cans as dens. I think they get a bad rap because occasionally there in a trash can get that picture taken and it becomes a medium. Just is all downhill from there for possums. Megan is our so funky looking. What is their family structure like. Is that something that might be a charismatic point. Absolutely and i. I would challenge folks to look up. Pictures of baby is particularly. Those low. Lived here at the duke. Lemur center repent some very good-looking babies in recent years. I'd argue that. A lot of primate babies look funky no offence to anyone out there so with Baby care is our primate so by nature. They're going to have a really strong relationship with their baby. They tend to have one infant at a time. Maybe twins but that's more rare And they will spend years teaching that baby. Primates like is an humans are born with notoriously few instincts. We need to learn a lot from our parents in order to survive and so mom spends a lot of time with them. My favorite thing. That baby is due. Besides all the other normal he'd step of playing with mom and surprising her is when they're learning what they can eat and what they can't eat they will literally just walk up to their mom and grab the food of her mouth and learn. Oh that's something that i eat by just stealing it out of mums now. I feel like an elephant in the room. Here is that is really look. Unlike any thing. I've ever seen before some people not me but some people may say that they look a little creepy and that i hear is the source of some myths in their native ranges. Is that right. Yes it can be so it's interesting our recent understanding of the malagasy peoples. So that the people who live in madagascar and their view is another. Lemurs is evolving as we learn more about how diverse those people are so for a little background. Madagascar's home to over twenty seven million people. So that's a lot of people to summarize beliefs on animals and a recent study that came out with the malagasy scientists in german scientists actually found that even two villages that are within a day's walk of each other might have vastly different views. On the i saw in one village. They might find people who see them as an evil omen there even some held beliefs. Still to this day. That is if they're seeing they will bring evil might even involve killing the i to protect their village but on the other side less than a day's walk away. They found people who actually saw the is as a form of pest control because they were growing things like sugar cane and is to the grubs and bugs that invest their plans and so it really varied but the overall trend was not surprising just like everywhere else in the world. The more ecological knowledge biological knowledge came in lower the rate of the superstitions and the cultural taboos against the animal. But i would just caution. Everyone not to think that everyone and madagascar has the same view just like everyone in the. Us doesn't either staying on this morbid theme for a moment. I know that opossums have a flair for the dramatic particularly playing dead. Why do they do that. How does it work. I love my dramatic steffi species we are not entirely sure why it's involuntary. He equate it to a human fainting. So it's not something you want to do. But it's essentially fainting out of fear and opossums. It seems to really happen with touch so if dog is running at them as soon as the dog actually reaches them. That's they kilo earn their on their side mouth hanging open. You know like the biggest smile except it's kind of different actually looks like a smile. It salivating when that happens is stay. Open it defecates. It releases this foul green liquid from its anal glands. So it's doing everything possible to not be eat. Studies show that their heart rate and a brain activity is an actual changing so again similar to painting but it can take them a few minutes up to an hour to recover and i think the issue is if you like. Oh no. I'm so sorry possum you are going after your dog. Who just chased after this As you touch it than it just prolongs their feigning death. What an argument for the charismatic. But it's an important thing to mention just a quick note that i'm kathleen davis and this is science friday from wnyc studios. We have just about reached the end of our time here. But i need to ask both of you to give me your best final arguments for your creatures. Why does your creature deserve to be crowned the most charismatic of this matchup. Meghan why don't you go. First with the i i will so i want to start by saying. I'm so glad both of these creatures are being featured but obviously i'm team i i think what edges them into the top for me is that they're just so incredibly unique they don't fit into the same old other primates. They don't fit into the same old as other. Lemurs they have all these incredibly unique things about them and their solitary really hard to find in the wild. So there's still so much more that we can learn about them that we don't even know yet and so i would argue that all of those factors together Just make them kind of a modern day mystery. That makes them fascinating and worthy of the title or at lisa. It's your turn now. What is your closing argument for. The oh possum. There are over one hundred capacity season the americas that we have one that made it all the way up into temperate north america and so. This is a really unique feces. They're very hardy and they are also resistant to rattlesnake venom. And we recently discovered that if sham uv. Light on possums. They were glow pink. In terms of charismatic mammals marsupials are largely under study especially american marsupials are so understudied and up until recently have been largely maligned. There is a new year's eve. Possum drop in north carolina up until nineteen. I think so they get really bad. Raps for just kinda look different and being different of the only marsupial in the us okay. Do you think that we've heard enough for our listeners. To choose their favourite charismatic creature of the day. I think we got pretty comprehensive arguments. And i think listeners have a pretty difficult choice ahead of them where can vote so listeners can go to science friday dot com slash carnival to cast their vote for which creature they think is the most charismatic. That's.

"Thank you for having me. It was a pleasure. We have to take a quick break but when we come back. It's an apostle verse is showdown as part of our charismatic creatures. Carnival stay with us. This is science friday. i'm marr- or fun. And it's time for charismatic. Creature carnival joining me today. Is cy fries. Charismatic creatures correspondent kathleen davis. Hi kathleen hey you mayor. I'm glad to have you along for the carnival will. I'm really excited to be here so before we jump into this week's charismatic creatures. Remind us with this carnivals all about so are charismatic creatures. Carnival is a celebration of six creatures suggested by our listeners by charismatic we mean a creature. That's overlooked or unfairly maligned by the general public. That once you look a little bit closer you can tell. It has an undeniable charm. We've got three weeks of matchups and then we're going to crown a winner and here we have an update about last week's matchup. Yes so if you remember last week. We kicked off the carnival with a showdown between the mantis. Shrimp and the hell bender salamander. Our listeners went to science. Friday dot com slash carnival to choose their favourite creature out of the two and the votes are in. So i would like drum roll. Please slithering into the first semi finalist spot of this charismatic creature carnival. The people's choice. Is the mantis shrimp. Congratulations to all the to strip out there. So we still have two more semi-finalists to discover one of which is gonna come from. Today's match up all right. I'm ready so who are charismatic. Creatures today so our first creature joining us exclusively from your local woods or maybe even your backyard is the a possum. This creature was nominated by a couple of people including listener from boston. Who wrote us on twitter. She said i'd like to nominate the possum for the carnival because it's the only marsupial in the us and it's pretty cute even though a lot of people don't like them and representing the possum in our showdown. This week is dr lisa. Walsh postdoctoral researcher at the donald danforth plant science center. She is based in washington dc. Welcome lisa you're having me and facing off against the possum. In our showdown is the most suggested creature of our carnival. All the way from the forests of batta is the i. We got quite a few nominations for the i including this message on our sifi. Vox pop up from lawn. In sioux falls. South dakota. And i think that you should add the i as a care spanich creature. They are the largest nocturnal primate They have some very specialized hands on their keith. Never stopped growing like a rodent. And just they're cute and cuddly looks All in the eyes of beholder. Thanks and representing the i in our carnival is meghan. Mcgrath education programs manager at the duke. Lemur center in durham north carolina. Welcome and thanks for joining us. I'm excited to be here. We're excited to have you both here. Just to note that this segment was recorded in front of a live zoom audience. Learn how you can join a future. Radio recording at science friday dot com slash livestream. So i have to say. I am completely charmed that both of our nominators used the word. Cute to describe each of these creatures. But i would love a basic description from each of you just paint a picture for our audience of what your creature looks like. What are they all about. Lisa i think more people might be familiar with the opossums. So let's start with you. Sure virginia guessing what was nominated. So that's the marsupial that is in the. Us there are actually over a hundred opossums feces across the american continents. But just to be brief. I'm gonna focus on the virginia awesome. It's actually the largest of the american opossums about the size of a cat. Usually whitish grey. Hank knows big. Bluish black erase una tayo bat. Unless you're really up close and personal it looks hairless. There is actually here there but because they use it to grab onto bridges and stuff. They don't want it to be long rush just like our hands which things don't have a lot of hair our hands so it sometimes gets compared to iraq. I don't think that is fair to the possum or a lot of rats out there actually be. A possum is found from costa rica. All the way up into ontario north dakota maine. They typically are found in deciduous forests. They really like marshland. But they are really resilient animals. They'll be in disturbed environments including your backyard. I've seen pictures of them on college. Campuses dot are also found across agricultural fields. They really just don't wanna be in. Desert areas are really high up nouns that otherwise. They're they're gonna be found oliver lisa. I wanted to ask. I've heard the term. Oh possum and possum. And they're often used interchangeably. What's the difference. That's a really good question. So historians tend to credit the name with john smith. Factually kind of anglicizing and american indian are gone were housing for the animal which roughly translates to y. Animal this was actually the first marsupial that european colonizers discovered a that was kind of what they based all other marsupials off of and so when james cook arrived in australia and a similar looking marsupials that were also intrigued. They decided we should name it like that original marsupial that we quote discovered and i guess somewhere along the line. They decided just for clarity. We should call it. Pass him although nowadays. Even in america we really lazier. We just don't like the. Oh we also dropped. The owns major obama's hassem but passan's in australasia. Those are very distantly related to be possibly find here. They come from numerous families. The brush possum retail awesome honey passing But deserve those are distinct around really interesting charismatic animals. Now let's move onto the i. Megan what does this creature looked like. They look like a mash of a bunch of different. Animals got jumbled together. So we've heard comparisons to possums or opossums before they have big bushy tails that almost look like a wolf for something. They have giant years like a bat but overall they are about five pounds. Lots of bushy black can silver wiry hair all over and they have In my opinion extremely charismatic faces with very kind of light silvery hair around their faces giant is giant ears and little pink noses now megan. I just looked up a picture of an i and the thing that jumped out to me. Is that really long-finger. They have. What's the point of that. great question. so is are full of really unusual adaptations and not just for being there an animal but they don't match a lot of primate rules. Even though there are primate they don't match a lot of lemur rules even though there are lemur. So they're kind of like the rebels of lemur evolution and branched off super early to have all these interesting things and the finger is one of the most interesting so all of the is fingers are pretty long. that middle tapping finger is actually not their longest finger. It's an optical illusion because it's so thin and skinny and they hold it at a weird angle and that tapping finger is basically used for everything. We've seen drink water with it. They'll eat like slices of orange with it. We've even seen one particularly funny. I hear who eats his grapes that way. Although most of them aren't that fussy most popular in their mouth so that tapping finger is elongated very thin and some people say it's on a ball and socket joint but technically it is very very flexible joint that basically doesn't keep.

"From a cd called feedback. Madagascar that was jau. Jobe with microsoft. Miano i play it. You play it and that is a d. That is a benefit cd for replanting madagascar's rainforests. That song is about replanting the forests. Which is something that needs to be done to save. The lemurs and speaking of lemurs before the break. You heard the lemur seat along song by echo. Rapper from lemurs leaping. You are listening to the children's hour. I'm katie stone and with us on. The show is faye goodwin from the duke. Lemur center in durham north carolina. Where they are working on making sure that lemurs do not go extinct and are studied and understood. The kids have just a few more questions for you. What is your job at the numerous center. Like what do you do. Do you just hang out believers. My job is super fund. I think i've got the best job because my job is to teach people about lemurs ninety that in lots of different ways at the lemur center we have tourists that go out all the time. There are lots of different kinds of tours for little kids on the scenes tours and then we also do special programs summer camps and workshops where we learn a lot about something really specific about lemurs. So i get to tell people everything i know about lemurs and it's important that i make sure i know about all the new stuff that's happening with lemurs so i get to about research and conservation all the time so my job is mostly just telling people about lemurs. But it's also really important that i know how to keep the lemur safe in healthy and keep the people safe and healthy at the same time since everybody knows levers cute and cuddly. A lot of folks sometimes wanna get too close or touch and we have to make sure that everybody stress-free. I'm a little bit like a lemur lifeguard. In addition to a teacher about here's how in climate change impacting pakistan. Lemurs so climate change is impacting. Lemurs kind of the same way. It's impacting a lot of other animals. So climate change is making temperatures higher. But it's also making the weather do crazy things and if you're living in the forest something like a big mom soon or hurricane who take down a lot of trees it could be a big problem for you Lemurs have a lot of mealy special needs. They have really special adaptations to their environment. So things start to change in their environment. If things start to grow differently or not grow enough they could be in really big trouble so the more that the weather changes the more that lemurs will have to adjust and if they can't adjust they might be in big trouble. How can we help lemurs. now that are so endangered. That's a great question and this is really a big part of that. Just learning about lemurs and understanding how important they are in how special they are. Education is a huge part of saving species. Because if you don't know about an annual how can you care about it in save it. The second way is supporting organizations. Like the duke. Lemur center that are able to do the work in madagascar. Not everybody can go travel to madagascar d work not. Everybody has the skills to do conservation work in places like madagascar vice supporting organizations like the l. c. either by going for a tour were or a donation or doing our Adopt a lemur program or something like that. You are helping organizations. Do the work that they need to do in the wild other. Things that we can do is Support the sustainable exports that madagascar puts out so madagascar vanilla chocolate and coffee are always to support farmers living in madagascar. So they don't have to cut down more forest But it is pretty tricky to find ways to help home saving a species across the world. So i always encourage folks to look in your backyard. I think about all those great species all over the world but seeming species in your own backyard. It's a great place to start. You can learn a lot more about lemurs lemur dot duke dot. Edu the duke. Lemur center is where our guest is from fake good win and say we just wanna thank you so much for being with us on the children's hour today we learned a lot.

"Baton. Mater food whisper respite skirt wildlife have to have a habitat is the title track from bill have to have a habitat. Cd indeed lemurs have to have a habitat and the destruction of the rainforests of madagascar have been devastating but places like the duke. Lemur center are helping to replant the forests of madagascar and the madagascar people themselves are replanting their own island. And we'll have a song coming up. That explains how the lemurs are part of the process of planting a forest. You're listening to the children's hour with us on. The show is fake goodwin. She's an educator at the duke. Lemur center in durham north carolina. How lemurs or at your facility. So right now. I think we have about two hundred twenty. It might be a little more than that because we just had some new babies this month. And we've got some more babies on the way so round two hundred twenty or two hundred and twenty-five salata. Lemurs must be like the cutest thing in the world. A baby boomer. We'll just like baby. They us sometime. Look a little weird at first. They don't have all their area and their heads are really big but they get super cute after about a week. Is there any way most. That gonna stink quick. The giant is great question. Yeah there are about seventeen species of reamer that have gone extinct that we know of. Oh wa so they. They were usually the really big lemurs that were way. Bigger than the lemurs. We know of today the coolest one that we like to talk about is make a latapy. Mega lapis was about as big as a guerrilla. If you can imagine a gorilla sized lemur pretty awesome. Now they probably just eight leads and hung out in the trees guerrillas. Do they are pretty impressive. Now it's kind of hard to find fossils mag car so there might be even more extinct. Lemurs that we don't know about yet. But we know of about seventeen lot on the planet so i know we already talked that. Lemurs are in danger from humans cutting on their habitat but the things that actually the animals that actually are predators to lemurs include. One super cool animal called the foo set and that's spelled f. s. s. a. If you wanna look it up the food said is a really cool animal. That looks sort of like a cross between a dog and a cat and they're really good at climbing trees. So they can keep up with the lemurs in madagascar in the trees. So that's their number. One predator is the food. But lear can also be endangered from big birds and snakes usually the smaller lee mercer. The baby boomers are the only ones that have to worry about big birds and snakes. I have heard of lemur stink fights. What do you know about them. I'm so glad you asked about lemur. Stink fights because it's one of the coolest things that lemurs do so lemurs especially ring tailed. Lemurs use sent to communicate so kind of like dogs and cats do. But lemurs have special scent glands and ring tailed. Lemurs have them on inside of each wrist. So when ring tailed. Lemurs stink fight. They'll pull their straight detail around in front. And they'll rub those scent glands on their wrists all over their tail. So they're getting their tail all full of stink and then they'll take taylor over their head and they'll slick at the other rumor that their stink fighting with so there kevin that other lemur of faithful of their own stink so usually that happens between two male ring tailed lemurs two boys and they're usually fighting over territory or over girls but sometimes the males will also stink flirt. So they'll do the same thing but they'll do it nicely and wave their tail over by fema to see what she thinks of his smell now when they're stink fighting their stink is full of information so they can tell a lot about each other just by smelling that stink. It's pretty cool to watch but not a lot of fun to smell. What kind of information is in the stink. The you can tell how healthy lemur is based on their smell. And of course. Lemurs when they're looking for mates are looking for a nice healthy strong mate. You can also tell their dna. So lemurs can kind of tell who is related to them or not just based on smell which is pretty awesome. How daring kale twain. Climb on the clip. That is such a cool question and there are lots of researchers that are studying things just like that in the wild and at the lemur center. So lemurs are part of the primate family. Which means like us they have hands instead of paws so that means they have a thumb and they have fingers and those hands are really good at grabbing onto rocks so those lemurs have tough pads on their hands and they have those mobile phones like we do so they can grab onto those rocks and rock line way. The second thing that helps them is that retail. Lemurs as you know. Have that long strike. Detail and that stripy tale really helps them with their balance. So they jump on iraq and they need a little bit of help getting their balance. That tail helps them out a lot now. Their tail can't grab onto things like monkey tails can. They're not prehensile tails but they help a lot with their ballots. We're learning about lemurs with fake goodwin. From the duke. Lemur center in durham north carolina. I think we have a few more questions for you if you'll stick around. This is a song about how. Lemurs contribute to.

"Born mark from a cd call leela. Trump's that is in swedish and i've been assured it's all about lemurs. Today's show is all about lemurs. And we're with fake goodwin. She's from the duke. Lemur center in durham north carolina. Where their mission is partially to save. Lemurs from stink tion. Lucas has the next question. So why are lemurs endangered. Lemurs are endangered for a couple of big reasons. The number one reason is that their habitat is being destroyed. Lemurs rely on forests and trees. They live in trees so right now in madagascar a lot of the people living there don't have enough to eat and they don't have enough money so the way that they help themselves is to cut down areas of the forest so they can grow crops. Now it's not their fault that they are doing that. We need to make sure we help them so they can help the lemurs too but deforestation is a really big problem for lemurs. The second issue is that lemurs are only found in madagascar one island. That's about the size of california so they don't really have a backup option. You can't really put them somewhere else. It's not like they're living all over the world so with those two factors combined. Lemurs are in big trouble. There's also some other little things that contribute sometimes people if they get hungry. Enough will Food and sometimes they captured them to be kept as pets but those aren't as big problems as their habitats being cut down. What's the difference between lemurs and monkeys. Oh excellent question remains a monkeys evolutionary. Speaking have a difference of about thirty million years between them. The big differences that we can see when we look at lemurs monkeys. Lemurs have a wet nose in monkeys. Do not so we are. Part of a group called strips arinze which actually means curled nose or wet nose. So that's their big difference but they also have a lot of other little differences like the way their bones are shaped the way they're not shaped and a lot of their behavior and social groups. We also have a really cool thing in their teeth called tooth. Comb so imagine that your bottom six teeth were long in stuck out straight where shaped kind of like a comb and that's used to groom yourself for brusher here. That's lemurs have monkeys. Don't have that so a couple of little cool physical characteristics. Separate lemurs and monkeys why lemurs only live madagascar. So once upon a time sixty five million years ago. Lemurs lemur ish. Animals were found all over the world even in north america and it was sort of happenstance that some of those early lemurs got washed across the mozambique channel which separates africa from madagascar to about two hundred miles today but it might not have been that far sixty five million years ago. They got washed out in the storm and started to settle on madagascar. After that happened thirty million years ago we started to see monkeys showing up in monkeys out competed lewis for a lot of the same resources so we started to go extinct in all those places that monkeys were showing up but monkeys never made it to madagascar their safe haven. So it's sort of a little time capsule of what the world might have looked like sixty million years ago now today. A lemurs are so specialized to madagascar. That if they tried to move anywhere else they probably wouldn't do a good job the only reason they're doing so well in durham because we help them out and give him lots of food to eat metal air all that good stuff. One of biggest threat to lemurs today. The biggest threat is definitely habitat. Destruction and most of that again is just driven by people who are living in poverty and need a little bit of extra help. So if we can help save the forest in madagascar we can definitely save the lemurs. That's fe goodwin from the duke. Lemur center where they have eighty five acres and just a haven for lemurs. And we're going to learn more right after a little of this. This is bill. Oliver.

All About Lemurs

"What is a lemur. That's a really awesome question to start with as a educator at the lemurs center i actually meet a lot of people who don't really know the answer that question because we murs are kind of in the middle of a couple of different families so to simplify that. Lemurs as you guys probably know are part of the primate but they are the very earliest primates that ever showed up on earth so when you look at them they don't really look like the monkeys and apes that we think of when we think of primates they have a wet knows they have a small body and they look a little bit more like some of those earlier mammals cats and raccoons in marsupials. So a lot of people at the lemur center think that lemurs armor soup bills or related to raccoons or something like that but lemurs are primates. And like i said there the earliest primates that ever showed up in the world so they are like the original primates on her. That's amazing so in a way. Is it true that we could trace our evolutionary history. Back to lemurs we could. We'd have to go about sixty five million years. Back but primate started with levers so our whole family tree starts with them all the way up to humans so cute my goodness i can hardly stand cute they are they just seem like a super snugly. Almost cat like monkey. Like if i worked at the duke lemur center. I'd wanna hug them all the time do you do you have them. Leaders are definitely very social with other lemurs but as wild animals. They are totally uninterested in hanging out and hugging humans and they look super cuddly. But the more you hang out with levers the more he gets to know that they don't really care about us. they just want to hang out with earlier buddies.

"Exotic their letters that which Carol Baskin's She focuses on anything other than tigers. Equally crazy person like her importing exotic non domesticated animals for pet trade to stop but there is good news for their conservation and that is that there are lots of organizations dedicated to helping endangered species of course in in all ways. But especially there. Is this really cool? Place called the Duke Lemur Center. It was founded in nineteen sixty six in on the campus of Duke University in Durham North Carolina also during North Carolina. What did you just during not durum? Durham Yeah Right. Ever famous Duke University and it is a leader in the study care and protection of lemurs. Which as a whole all. Lemur species are officially Earth's most threatened group of mammals. Wow because they're so if Madagascar is being destroyed that's all we have is the only place we have. No a lot of the info that I got today was right from the Duke. Lemur center is website because they have a lot of really cool information on all the different lemurs that they study in all the different lemurs. They're trying to help. And they indeed. How resource at their center. There they free roam in on a large property and they get to kind of observe their natural behaviour. Learn them which is Great. And they have a really significant. This about how you can help. Lemurs which is great. How can I help lemurs Tommy? Tom Yet tell me that you can help. Lemur is that you can send a present to any of the lemurs at the Duke Lemur Center. They keep an Amazon wishlist. And you could just choose. Special treats and enrichment activities to send them right off their habit ship right there. Yes can we please humor at on our social media because I feel like everyone else needs to know that you can send presents too? Lemurs you can you know what else you can do. What what can I do? Tell me symbolically adopt a ringtone Weiner Oh why not so to learn more about species and help support their care. Not only you know at the center but also in Madagascar you can symbolically adopt one of two different species of lemurs. Or maybe just the one I have to double check but definitely a ring tailed lemur through their specific adopted program and the packages start at just fifty dollars which might be a great birthday present for a Human Lemur lover that you have. Yes right you can adopt them Aleemor Symbolically Omega. Another thing that you can do to help lemurs during normal non covid. Nineteen Times is that you can actually visit the Duke Lemur Center. It's only usually no youth only partially funded by the university so they really rely on revenue from tours to help pay for their for the animals. Care Tour Yeah. We should total souvenirs. I I would assume so you know I feel like they have shot. I guarantee I don't know for sure so I can't say I guarantee but like they're missing out if there's not I bet they they might even have. Let's see trip road trip. Long and long road trip would be an era after quarantine. I am down for like at Twelve Day road trip. He just just down and we're down and out on their on their website under their get involved too they. They have their wishlist. They have their their instructions on visiting when you when they're not closed and they also if you're in the North Carolina if you're in the area of Duke University they also have opportunities for students. They have probably limited volunteer positions internships research opportunities all kinds of ood seem to currently have an online shop but they do have virtual programs. So that's Kinda cool. Let's I know I'll have to. We'll have later but some really cool stuff exciting on on a slightly smaller less. You know less directly related to the Duke Lemur Center other things you can do are of course don't promote ring tailed. Lemurs as pets please. Don't they are not like heavily marketed. Unless you're like in the black market I think but you know just don't promote them don't promote while being captured and brought into captivity to be pets snagging Lon holes in the wild and love them in support of an ethical breeding programs and leave them. They're worse for them exactly And the last thing that Duke Lemur Center wants to advocate for people is to engage in conservation locally. You know it's it's not just about lemurs for them. They just people to know. Visit your local ecosystems find ways to support your local habitats? Because you know doing everything. We can in our own environment fist. It's all about a global mindset. And they're doing what they can report the local people in Madagascar to educate them to preserve natural habitat. And doing all that kind of takes all of us. We all have to work together to preserve our own local community ecosystems. And that's something you can even do while sheltering in place exactly. Yeah you know is something something as simple as encouraging insects and local birds to come to your garden have safety or stop using chemicals and pesticides in rat poisons those can end up really hurting wildlife and ending up in streams in harming all animals. That were there so little things like that. It might not feel like you're helping the lemurs but conservation. Efforts are really from small to global helping everyone which is great. I love it included this. 'cause that's album rate. I'm pretty sure we would be friends with them. I think so. Especially whoever wrote their website? They did a good job was good and writing is basically everything I have on. Lemurs wow I feel like I learned so much and took a trip and it was a trip with like really amusing slate. offroad tangents be in. Today's we're driving to visit the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History but then you had to stop and see like the world's greatest ball of twine or something like that yet goes episode was so Kathy is all this fund research on lemurs honestly. It was kind of a hot mess in its organization. I will admit them but I did. Task You with something for this week. Did you come prepared? Oh Yes yes I did. You know. Did to talk about an adoptable animal. That's available right now for adoption Corinna. I picked this one for you. I you did not I did but also for me. Okay but but no though it's for you. Oh my ready. I'm ready. Brace yourself embrace today. I have sweet sweet. Teeny tiny little Chihuahua. Mix for you. Oh No yes. He is a male and he is a senior his name is Presley and he's available for auction today right now at Ville in get out of here Francisco. Oh yes he. So they'll says that little presley is adorable energetic guy who will be your bff for life own people. He's a total ham. He's really silly and funny. He'll keep you smiling every time you're with him. He loves to cuddle and he smiles when he's happy and he's naked and he's so achey stone Maki he's just a he's real is so cute joke. Ajayi SIS guys you high about Bill Dot Org and follow their links to their available Matiz. He's one of the first dogs on their. You shocked to see that face to understand up. We will also put Put posts of course on our social media so you can see him on her social media he. He has a ton of energy even though he's estimated to be around ten years old but honestly ten years old for a Chihuahua middle aged not that bad yet many pounds so he's twice the size of your toilet. What small but I yeah. He's he says he's definitely got to be taller than than my guy. And what really got me is that? He has a signature look which is with his eyes closed and his his snap tilted up when he sunbathing wind right. I can literally picture this dog that way and I think Oh. That dog needs to be in my window. Bathing on my Ottoman right. Now we're in my planter box pretending to be grown yes exactly. He would prefer to be With dogs who are good at getting along with other dogs You know which I am used to because my dog is that way right. It's like if you got the skills I can fit in but if you don't have the skills I can't figure that out with you I don't have time for that also. I'm not going to bother teaching. You come on. These are life lessons. You should have already learned get with the permanent writing. Yeah Oh my goodness so I are him. Go get him literally right now. He's in Yasser and they are doing it options right now too. Yeah so a Mutt Bill. Senior dog rescue sanctuary really. They're they're kind of a Combo rescue sanctuary because they utilize foster homes but they also have a sanctuary facility They have been all over national media as you a good example of what doing virtual adoptions look like they do virtual dog meet and greets like you can facetime your potential new friends. I love it. They're doing great work as they do year round. I mean corona virus are not those one of my favorite organizations to support. I just think they're awesome. They're great and I love a senior and also I love that. They have so many small dogs that are you know by shelter standards seniors but you could get a dog from them and happily are longer than a shelter dog being. That's not a senior star. Oh yeah man. They could go up yet they do. Muddle does have other dogs as well medium odds and than even a large dog right now. So if if this particular dog wouldn't fit into your home but you want to support the Commission you can donate or you can take a look at some of their other dogs. They also have a really awesome hospice program where they will help to offset the The cost of medical care for dogs. Who need comfortable safe place to land? While they live out their final days and years you just never really know. I think the only thing with the hospice program is that you do have to be close enough to utilize like their partner vets and stuff You know it's definitely something that I have considered because Manno Ma'am at Sabah's it is. It's very rewarding work. I think it's it's yeah but so fulfilling that is just that was. I don't think I could have thought of a better adoptable animals spotlight so much for picking Sweet Little Preston you're welcome Presley.

"Friday dot com slash lemurs. And these are primates, right? We right. So I'm to see connection here. Yeah. That's that's where a lot of the interest comes in we actually possess some of the genes that the dwarf lemur has that enables it to go into hibernation now. We don't know the mechanisms. The biological mechanisms that enable the animal to do that. But we do we know that we share the, gene. So there's a lot of interest in perhaps we could trigger hibernation ourselves. Well, if we if we trigger it, we must study have to stop it. Yes. Ideally, once you know, how to turn it on. Hopefully, we'll be able to turn off. I don't know that snus some whole other round of studies. And okay. So what would you do that you could put somebody into Tupua heading torpor is that we torbert towards another way of saying hibernation. Sure. So there's a lot of things that you could probably do with it. If you if you're going in for heart surgery your surgeon wants to lower your your circulation as much as possible. And so the easiest way to do that as to lower your blood pressure, lower lower, your body temperature, and that makes surgery a lot more safe for them. There are diseases where going into a coma with a much lower body. Temperature would be really beneficial. The disease would work its way through your system. And then you could wake up. Up and ideally would be out of your system. And then, of course, Nassau's really interested in this because they could reduce the payload on the rockets if you don't have to bring tons and tons of food for the rockets deed on their way out to Saturn or Mars or wherever they're going. Then you could save a lot of pay. Stuff in your rocket. A payload? But also, you, you know, one of the biggest problems of traveling in space is radiation. We're in a sleep state. You could just be put in a cocoon of letters something. Right. And maybe survive all that radiation. Ideally, ideally, I mean, I mean the haven't set any dwarf lemurs into space. They are in danger problem you're saying that you saying the video one of the problems is it's an endangered species. You can't poke at it or experiment there. There. The Duke lemur center has set up has this captive breeding population, and they do that because a lot of the areas where these animals are are living are being deforested. So they had this captive breeding population. And you can't really poker broader, dissect these animals, so they have to be very careful about their studies. But one of the interesting points, this is a great video as they say, it's up on our website at signs prayed that comes slash lemurs. Is that when they wake up it's like they've been in the wake time, right? I know I mean, so so if the not crawling at a bit tire so people that are in comas when they wake up their muscles. The muscles have been so degraded that they have to regain. Muscle function. And that takes a long time these worth lemurs don't have any of those problems their kidneys comp- function completely and scientists don't understand how they do it. So there's a lot to be learned from from these cute adorable creatures, and you can see those cute adorable creatures up on our website at science Friday dot com slash lemurs. Luke, Luke Ruskin.

"Slash Lima's. High Luke IRA, and I want to remind everybody that this is science Friday from WNYC studios. To tell us what tell us. What is it a lemur? First of all, we don't know that. Sure. Sure. So lemurs primates that live on the island of Madagascar, you could only find them on the island of Madagascar. And you've probably seen them a lot in pop culture. You've probably seen them in the movie Madagascar most people associate them with the ring tailed lemur, the ones with a little stripe tails, they've got big eyes, and they they are primates again. But the lemurs that I went to film at the Duke lemur center in North Carolina dwarf, fat tailed dwarf lemurs. So they are about the size of a squirrel there gray. And they have giant is there knocked ternal. So so you can only see them in these red rooms, and they have this big fat tail. That's that they use in order to survive hibernation. So people are so interested in why are they so interested in studying lemurs there? Well, in the case of the fat tailed dwarf lemur, this this animal goes is the only primate that goes into hibernation. So for six months. Out of the year. This animal basically becomes reptilian. Dick becomes cold glutted? It's thermostat struts down and its brain activity shuts off completely almost completely and it becomes pretty much dormant. And then every so often every two weeks or one week two weeks, depending on the temperature. It's thermostat. Sparks up for a couple of hours. It goes into a sleeping state. Again, hibernation is not sleep sleep is an active brain state hibernation is is a is a not act of state. So it starts to sleep. And then it goes back into hibernation again. It's amazing because you can see this video on our website at science.

I mean, I think we're very spontaneous organic, I didn't know if we'll do another what it'll be about the Eddington thing lend itself, very well because of the hundredth anniversary their million million. Always a good catalyst for ideas. Right. Yeah. Well, I think also there are astronomical events that are inspire us. And I lot of this idea to build this first ever public observatory in New York City was inspired again by people descending excitement over things. Like, the eclipse that we totally underestimated the. I was going say somewhere. There must be poetry written about eclipse. American eclipse, there probably is actually Amanda Palmer who we heard from earlier who read she later in the show the other day on Tuesday, performed Assange. She has a beautiful new record. And there's a song called drowning in the sound which is about the twenty seventeen clips and hurricane Harvey her kind of experiences performed the eclipse song at the show, we'll have to wait, then maybe some other time.

Thank you both for taking time to be. What has big is a bushy tail and is the only primate to go into hibernation six months at of the year. It's the dwarf labor. You knew that right? Radio producer Luke grass can went down to the Duke lemur center in North Carolina to investigate the Lemus strange sleeping habits for our latest macroscopic video up now at science Friday dot com slash lemurs, high Luke Tyra, and I want to remind everybody that this is science Friday from WNYC studios.

So they are about the size of a squirrel there gray. And they have giant is they're nocturnal. So so you can only see them in these red rooms, and they have this big fat tail. That's that they use in order to survive hibernation. So people are so interested in why are they so interested in studying lemurs there? Well, in the case of the fat tailed dwarf lemur, this this animal goes the only primate goes into hibernation. So for six months. Out of the year. This animal basically becomes reptilian. Dick becomes cold blooded. It's thermostat shuts down and its brain activity shuts off completely almost completely and it comes pretty much dormant. And then every so often every two weeks or one week two weeks, depending on the temperature. It's thermostat. Sparks up for a couple of hours. It goes into a sleeping state. Again, hibernation is not sleep sleep is an active brain state hibernation is is a is a let non-active state. So it starts to sleep. And then it goes back into hibernation again because you can see this video and our website at science Friday dot com slash lemurs. And these are primates, right? We. So I'm Dan connection here.

So what would you do with you could put somebody into two per torpor is that we tore of saying hibernation. Sure. So there's a lot of things that you could probably do with it.
