Sometimes, I go off the beaten path in wandered deep into the woods, but I'm always careful not to go too far. It's easy to get lost in here. Just breathe in fresh. Air. And listen to that peaceful silence. Not only peaceful, but it does give us the chance to play a game. Earth Rangers. Let's play. Who Am I forced addition. Who? Am I? All right. Listen Up, and if you can figure out the identity of this songbird. Any ideas. Wait. I can catch the sound one more time. Okay I'll give you a hint. The male of this species bright red. The female is mostly tan-colored. Together, get. Did. You say colonel. Well. If you did you write. Northern Cardinals are beautiful songbirds that live in forests parks, even backyards. You'll definitely notice if you have a cardinal around. Further cardinals have very distinctive calls that they use to communicate with each other. Male and female cargill. WanNa, know what a cardinal is feeling. Just check out the crested feathers on the top of their heads. If the cardinals crest is up, it's definitely feeling agitated if it's lowered the cardinals feeling relaxed. WanNa, know what these pretty birds eat. Seeds, plants, and insects. And what about chicks? Well Karl Mama's lay between one and five aches, and they incubate them for around two weeks. When the babies hatched, they grow really quickly and the chicks leave the nest after one week. Don't worry Mama, Dad will continue to feed their babies for up to two months. Not, just thanks to be listened to. Actually really, really important. All of the animals here in the forest. and. So he the IT. Animals and their physical environment together are referred to as an ecosystem and force are incredibly complex ecosystem. Home to many trees and plants make an interesting animals insects. Talked about in our last episode of bio-diversity. Four zero. One of the most biodiverse habitats in the world. Wonderful Place to hike and explores still will help slow down global warming by second carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere. And that's why is earth razors we have to do whatever we can to protect for us. In fact, a little while ago. I had the pleasure of interviewing Darren Sleep from the sustainable forestry initiative or SSI. Dedicated to protecting forts and now. To shooter. Interview. Vacation. Conversation. Earth Ranger Emma here with Darrin Sleep from the sustainable forestry initiative. He derring. Do you mind if I ask you a few questions about forest enforce conservation? Problem Cool. Can you tell us a bit about what SF IDA's? Absolutely so SSI stands for the Sustainable Forestry, initiative and SF SSI in addition to work that we do with communities and conservation and educational programs for K. Twelve students in both Canada and the US, we also set a standard for forest management company. So we sat a level of practice and and that's management practices that we expect forestry companies that are certified as if I were here too. That sounds really important. And just a little bit about you. I read that you design studies to trek bats and balls. How does that work? I mean I. Guess you're used to being in the woods at night. How do you even track bats? That, that's a great question and and I wish I could say that I do a lot of that work now. But that was back when I was doing my graduate work I spent a lot of nights running through the woods either calling owls or chasing bats and in both cases, it involves capturing animal and bring a little tiny radio backpack on them So then you use fancy telemetry equipment and follow them over time and see where they're going what habitats are using and what they're doing out there. Cool. All right. So why are four? So important? Forests are so important for so many reasons If you think about almost everything, you do daily, you interact with the forest whether you're in downtown. TORONTO, or you're living out in, timmins. Ontario. It doesn't matter for us will filter the air for us and they oxygen to breathe for US purify millions of liters, worth of water. Every year force also control that water. So that helps prevent flooding and then on top of that forests have a huge role to play in helping regulate our climate for us are an incredible sponge that sucks up carbon dioxide from the air and carbon dioxide, we note with rising carbon. Carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere. That is the driver behind a lot of the climate change that we see the the planet getting warmer and forests have this amazing role of sucking carbon out of the atmosphere and holding it into themselves. So whether it's in a tree or in the soil if he cut down that tree, we make it into a table or a house get to keep carbon. They're serves the purpose for us. While at the same time when we replant those.

"All right Rangers here comes the sound clip listen. Okay, here's a little hint. We've learned a lot about this creature in past episode. In fact, we even spoke to this animals zookeeper from the Toronto Zoo. Any ideas. Here's that sound more time? Ready to guess. Did you. Rhinoceros. If you did your. Who would have thought rhinos with sound like that? That sounded more like good tiny bird as opposed to Jane Norms Rhinoceros to me. There are actually five different types of Rhino on earth, two species from Africa, the Black Rhino in the white. Rhino and three from Asia Sumatran, Javan and greater one horned. Finals are such important animals. They're one of the largest land mammals alive today. Unfortunately, there are fewer than thirty thousand of them alive in the wild. Rhinos have been hunted. For Their Horn as some cultures believe the horns have medicinal properties. They absolutely do not in fact. Do you know what Rhino Horns are made of? Carrington. That's the same stuff. Your hair and fingernails are made of and last time I checked. There wasn't nothing medicinal about hair or fingernails. Rhinos need our protection. They're big. They're beautiful and we WANNA make sure that they're here for a long long time. For more INFO about rhinos and a superfund interview with my friend, Angie, the Rhino Keeper Checkout Episode Twenty Two of the Earth Rangers podcast. Rangers I am really excited because it's time for our creature feature..

"Oh we're thing I wanted to ask you since I have you on the line now. Is it true that versus sleep standing up because that does not sound very comfortable so there's two kinds of sleep and Horses do One version standing up and one version lying down so they have really really special ligaments to cross their knees that lock into place to let them do really really deep napping. But it's not the kind of sleep where they can dream. Dot kind of sleep is called. Rem Sleep and they need about four hours a day of that but it doesn't need to be altogether and for REM sleep lie down but because they can get really really good rest on their feet there.

It's called the big mouth and it's all about climate change and how it's affecting people and animals around the world but don't worry it's not the typical scary story kind of deal that may expect some climate change podcast. No Sarah does a great job staying positive and her show Super Fun. Oh wait she actually sent me a recording of the exact moment when she decided to start the show. They should play that for you. So you'll see what I mean Let me see Where's that clip? Yeah here we go big thoughts say let me God just so much to think about where to even start I know I school today. We had an assembly with like a slide show thing and it was all about climate change and environmentalism and it was crazy. The whole thing was just problem after problem and everyone speaking and either presentations with some vague warning about things that works and like that's the usual right every time you turn on the news you hear that officials say climate change and most of the time. I just listening this bad feeling in worried and like that's it but today I don't know something changed. I was listening to it and I just kept thinking. This isn't okay. Why is this still like this? Someone Someone needs to say something. Someone needs to do something and then. I fought me right. I think about this all the time. I care deeply about the planet. I know how to fact check in research. I kind of know how to record audio. Kinda but the point is this plan started to form in my mind and now I feel like I have to do it. My guys I'm going to do it. I'm going to start a podcast to figure out what's really going on with climate change. But it's going to be different. I'M GONNA do it in a way that flips the usual bad news. No answers vibe. 'cause like who needs more that. I'm going to try and talk to people who really study it and cut through the noise like the people who are actually changing things. Scientists Aktyubinsk risks. And he is. I can get on the phone even more than that. I WanNA talk to teams. Feel the same way I do and have started to act because I know I know so many other teams all over the world are the same and I just think if we can find each other and communicate. Maybe we can actually turn things around. It's a lot to think about but I am so ready to do this. That was by bus. Sorry I gotta go. Hey wait a melt.

"Three hundred Emma and today I'm having a nice comfy evening by the fireplace here at the Earth Rangers headquarters Earth Rangers. You know as much as I love being outside. Sometimes it's nice to snuggle up on your favorite armchair with some hot cocoa sir. Scratch Yuan is in a super snugly mood so before we had today's expedition. Let's take it easy for now and start the show up with a top five countdown. The top five animals that change color in the winter number five time. This Arctic Bird has beautiful mutiple brown feathers in the summer and looks little bit like a fezzet but in the winter it turns completely white to blend in with the snow. For camouflage number four the long tailed sales weasel. This ferocious little mammal has a beautiful brown coat in the summer. With a lighter yellowish belly in pause but in the winter turns completely wife Number Three Arctic. Fox I love Fox's of all kinds in the summer. The Arctic Fox has a coat that is a mix awesome gray and brown tones but in the winter. Yep You guessed it it turns completely wipe. I'm starting to see a pattern here. Number two Arctic Hare another animal that shares a similar habitat with the Arctic Fox and the PTARMIGAN and guess what it turns from an earthy Brown in the summer to the surprise surprise a snowy white in the winter but at least it has some super cute black tips on the top of its ears number one on the American goldfinch speeds. Now don't tell me. They're turning white in the winter. No that would not make sense since these birds are migratory but the male species does look quite different during the summer months there. Yellow feathers are much more vibrant. And they're wearing a cool black hat in the summer. Even there is just a little bit more orange you know. I think we could actually add one more candidate to this list. We Earth Ranger Emma in the summer I can usually be seen in shorts and my trademark green shirt will in the winter. I resemble a walking blankets. If you you want to see pictures of all the animals from the countdown kick out the show notes at Earth Rangers Dot com slash podcast Earth Rangers anyway. I'm just too comfortable. The head outside for any wild adventures today. So how about if I tell you a little story instead. Okay grab yourself a hot cocoa. Take off your shoes And get comfy. Now you all know that I love traveling. The world meaning all sorts of cool animals and I have had so many close encounters with wildlife that it's getting hard to count but have I ever told you about the very first time I interacted with a wild with animal. This was a long time ago. I was only nine years old and I spent the summer with my aunt. In the countryside she lived on a little farm up north she kept chickens and goats and loved being there. Because I got to help take care of the animals. She had these two beautiful barn cats in a big fluffy dog named Feazel one night. The dog and I were outside late. It was my responsibility to check up on the animals. I would count all the chickens. In the shed collect any eggs they had laid throughout the day and make sure the door to the goat's pen was properly close. Because you see just the night before. We had heard a pack pack of coyotes howling in the woods behind the farm. And we didn't want to take any chances. This could get a little scary especially on a dark moonlit night and on this particular evening it was abnormally dark and there was a low fog rolling in over the fields. I kept scanning my flashlight around the distance hoping I would would not see. A pair of hungry is reflected in the shine. Of course. My aunt was watching me the whole time from the kitchen door but still it was a little bit spooky. I had just given the barn cats freshwater when all of a sudden I noticed the for on feels neck rise up and her ears turn turn to face straightforward. Something was moving in the back of the yard. My heart began to pound. Was this a weasel or worse coyotes. Hi ody's I froze and completely still and then I heard it a strange sound coming from just behind the vegetable bet it was kind of high pitched not like a bird call but definitely not a coyote. There was again. It almost sounded sounded like a small child screaming before I could do anything else. Diesel took off down through the backyard and starting barking loudly. Screaming continued even louder than before so I had no choice but to check it out. As I got closer I finally saw what was happening. It was a small small rabbit that had gotten stuck in the fence that surrounded the vegetable bed I told Feazel the stand back and carefully approached the scared little critter. The the rabbits lake had gotten wedged in the fence at a bad angle so that it couldn't free itself quickly Iraq to the shedding some pliers in order to free the little guys I of course I sent feazel inside with my aunt at this point because I didn't want her to scare the rabbit ones. It was free and then to work on the fence very slowly. I can very carefully. I was able to bend the wire to create an opening big enough for the rabbit to escape. The little fuzzball had stopped screaming and it stops struggling into almost like he knew I was trying to health when it finally got out it took a few hops and sent back back into the grass. It seemed to be very weak and exhausted so I decided to scoop it up in my arms and bring it back to the barn where I happened to find a big container container that my aunt had used to hatched chicks it was empty and even had a small water bowl inside. I figured that it would be the safest place for the rabbit to spend the night.

Take you can figure out which of these animals is not found in the arctic ocean beluga mm-hmm narwhal see angel or ruffled lucille sit tate because we'll share the answer with you at the end end of this episode earth rangers okay. Let's check back in on the action rigid body of water. We don't a small breaking the ice. I went too far ahead. Let me rewind a little bit in there. We go pretty chilly up here. We're we're in the beaufort. Sea which is located north of canada living his rigid body of water. They don't mind the cold very much because of their thick blubber her which can be over. Fifty centimeters thick asks for me. I've got on seventeen layers and that's just an hats. We found a small breaking the ice where we placed my little sub there. It is she's butte. I call atlantis let he just climbing. Things are looking great in here. Not got a drop of water in the place. Now we just have to dive down and see if we can find a bow header too so i guess it's just this big level with the down arrow rolling okay current nine meters bowhead whales can dive really deep but they have to surface every thirty minutes or so because like all mammals they need to breathe air bowheads like other whales breathe through their blowholes bowheads actually have a pair of them on top of their head and their filter feeders which means they only eat really tiny creatures called krill puts over there. Is it a bow head. Atlantis identify that creature species rained seal. Thanks atlantis. I can't believe that actually works ring. Seals are pretty common up here. They live in areas all across the northern hemisphere. They're gorgeous but no bo head. Let's keep looking fifteen meters rangers but scientists believe bowhead whales can live over two hundred years ears that makes him the longest living mammal and what's that atlanta's identified that creature identifying feces in the luga thanks atlantis..

"I am super excited to take my new submarine for a test dive. It's going to be epic. I got it on g._d. And the former owner sold it to me for a great price okay so it needed a bit of fixing up and a lot of wealthy but it passed the watertight test. I left it out in that really nasty rainstorm last week in the inside state nice nice and dry. I think it'll be okay. Let's get out of the studio and head out to the ocean hands on deep diving investigation. The problem is i don't really know where to find the bowhead whale and i should probably also brush up on the do's and don'ts of deep sea exploration and marine biology. Hey my friend devon is a marine biologist. Maybe she can give me a couple of pointers <music>. Hello devin speaking. Hey devon. This is earth ranger emma. Hi how are you i'm good but but i'm about to go on a amazing deep diving deep sea exploration and i was wondering if i could get a few pointers. Oh fun yeah of course okay first off. Have you ever built your own submarine to go and exploratory missions into the deep sea. Wow no. I haven't built my own submarine before. That sounds is really cool. I have exposed the deep sea. Though using type of submersible it's called the remotely operated underwater vehicle and it's waterproof camera that goes in the ocean and you can control and drive it from the boat on the surface and with the camera you can see all kinds of creatures and landscapes the bottom of the ocean really wow how i'm kind of curious what would you say is the best place to spot aboard whale. Oh will live in the cold. Arctic waters close to the north pole hole. So one place you could try is the beaufort sea. Most oils have seasonal migration where they swim from cold waters in the arctic to warmer waters near the tropics like hawaii and then back each year but bowhead whales or one of the few whales that spend their entire year in those icy arctic waters beaufort sea good to know so. Have you ever seen one. No i've never seen a bow had whale and i've never been to the arctic. I live on the west coast most of canada and had seen a lot of other whales that migrate up and down the coast here like the gray and humpback whales and it's always really special to see whales in the wild yeah now. What's your favorite marine animal. My favorite marine creature has always been the octopus. I think that they look really cool and beautiful and they're also really really smart. Scientists have shown that they can learn by experience and they have short term memories just like us. That is so cool. What would you say is the most exciting part of your job. We're always learning so many new things about the ocean and i think that's really exciting and we know actually more about the surface of mars than we do about.

"Bat. And so now, I've got a little juvenile male bat in my hand. And if you put your twosomes next to each other that's about how big the body of the bat is oh my God. So amazing. Well, he's got his wings all spread out, and you can see the membranes. And he's oh tiny. And they only way I don't know like ten twelve grams which is about the weight of two quarters. So the next time you go to the dollar store and you're holding fifty cents. That's about how much one of these bass ways. Really a little tiny guys. Yeah. But really feisty as we talked the bat chomped down on Jessica's gloves with its tiny sharp peas, and it started screaming at her. And that's this little guys making those squeaking noises. So that's what a bat sounds like when it's trying to squirm out of your grasp exactly what it sounds like. And they have to say bats are lot different up close than I'd imagined. They're actually kinda cute to me. They look like little puppies. And they've got these huge ears and these little wrinkly lips and he's little whiskers. And so one of my favorite things to do is to bring people out to actually see bats up close because a lot of times. It'll change the way that they feel about bats, which is one of the most rewarding aspects of this work for me. Once we're finished doing an I'm over the adorable baby bat, Jessica got to work. I she had to figure out how old the bat was by measuring the distance between two joint bones and its wing. I've got a microscope here that oddly enough, I actually back light with my cell phone. Because that's the best way to see the joint, and I measure the gap through the microscope. She also drew blood from the tail in collected pellets poop that the bat left behind in the bag. And then there's the issue of bat milk. Oh love the job of a scientist. I know bad milk is actually really difficult to get. Sure. I'm sure it is it really is like milking a cow or any other animal. It's just that they're so tiny. What was it? Like the first time you melt the bat. Very difficult. So has tested my patience. But yeah. So the first time I ever milked that we were catching them earlier in the night. And so they hadn't really produce a lot of milk it. And so I wasn't sure if I was doing it wrong, or if the batch just didn't have milk. And so the first one that I was able to successfully milk like, I don't we? I think like through our hands up into the air and like jumped up and down because we were so excited that it finally worked. I can imagine not too many people have successfully milked the bat probably not enough to make cheese even. Yeah. I think artisanal cheeses thing for good reason. Be like a tiny little pellet. I should also say that you really shouldn't try to catch a bat yourself because there's definitely a risk of rabies noted. So what does Jessica do with all these bat fluids and measurements? She uses them for a little bit of science detective work to figure out what the bat have been eating. So I'm going to be doing stable isotope analysis from the milk samples, and then also from insect samples stable Tope analysis is a technique that reveals unique chemical fingerprint and bat food Jessica's challenge is to find those fingerprints within samples of blood in the pellets of poop from the babies once she does that she can track how the bat diet changes from milk to insects over the course of the summer. So that's really cool. But why is it important to know? How bats are weaned one of the reasons is simply that we don't know. That's our. Are are pretty under studied up till now. And so there's a lot of really basic questions that we just don't know about that. So that in itself is enough to drive me to ask a question. But it's more than that. What Jessica learns could be really important for conservation. Meaning how we protect animals species and their environments understanding the most stressful periods with the highest mortality rates are really important. I guess a classic example of that is our protection strategies with sea-turtles we often will put cages over Ness of seater legs because an easy thing that we can do to help increase sea turtles over ship. And so it's it's kind of the same idea there. We wanna make sure we know as much as possible about their life history. So that we can make the best decisions. We can. So I guess we want to do what we can to make sure that more adorable animal babies survived to become even cuter adults. So they can have another generation of even cuter animal babies. It's a circle of life. Circle of cuteness. So a huge part of making that happen is protecting animal habitat Jessica's able to do her research because group called back conservation international Fahd the land that the back. He was on in order to preserve it conservationists, the real life people and really anyone could grow up to be a real bad person. It's not just for superheroes. You know, five years ago. I never ever would have guessed that this is what I would have been doing. I guess it'd be right next to the largest group of of mammals in the whole world. And that's not a lot of people get to do that and get the privilege to study them. So I feel extremely fortunate that that I'm the kid gets to do this. If you were a bad person. What would you study draws a picture or send us a recording send it to tumble podcast at gmaiLcom or use the contact form on our website who he can't wait to hear your fat adventures? Thanks

"Here Rangers earth ranger, Emma here employed, you I have a treat for you today. We're going to present an episode from our friends at the tumble podcast. It's all about bats tumble podcast is a science podcast for kids. And every episode tells a fascinating story of science and discovery if you're looking for great podcasts, the whole family can enjoy track tumble. We think both parents and kids guaranteed to learn something, new smart and fun. And personally, I'm a huge fan. So without further ado, here's the episode. Hi, I'm Lindsay and our Marshall. Welcome to tumble the show where we explore stories of science discovery today. We're headed to the bat cave. You mean the place where Batman and Robin? Hang out waiting for calls about crimes and Gotham city. No, it's way cooler than that. We're going on a field trip to the biggest back Coney in the entire world where we'll meet a bat biologist and find out how bats learn to be bad. One morning this summer. I got up to watch the sunrise on an old ranch outside of San Antonio, Texas. But there was one element of the sunrise. You can't see or hear anywhere else in the world. That sound is wind passing over millions of bat wings. So this is the beginning of when the bat start to rain down in the morning. That's real life bat women's lash bet biologist Jessica dryer, I met her around six AM near the entrance to Bracken cave, which is home to fifteen million Mexican free tailed, bats fifteen million bats. Yeah. It's the largest concentration of mammals on the planet when you are standing by the cave, and you look up into the sky pretty much as far as you can see upwards. You'll just see these little dots appear out of the sky, and they'll just drop straight down. And they've been clocked at about forty miles an hour dropping into the cave. And so I mean, literally, thousands of bats will be raining down over you coming back into the cave, and it is one of the most cool otherworldly experiences. You'll ever. Have. It was like being in some sort of secret bat world, but what made it even more special was that this huge cloud of bats was made up only of mothers and their babies too. Big moms group. So we're approaching that point right now or the sun is starting to rise and more bats are starting to come in from a night of feeding are we going to get pooped on? Yeah. Yeah. If you're standing close enough to the cave. Yes. You will get some rain some urine rain and some poop landing on your head. Hope you brought your bat raincoat or should I say hoop coat? I actually don't have one. This is so incredibly amazing where else can you see this kind of thing not many places in the world. And you know, it doesn't seem to matter. How many times you've seen it at always blows your mind? Jessica seen it a lot all summer. She's been camping outside the cave in every night. She's up between two AM and nine AM catching bats. And that's what I've come to see wait. We catching bats dislike grabbing them out of the air like. How and why let's talk about why? The point of this whole project that I'm working on is to figure out. What's the transition? Looks like when a baby bat goes from drinking only its mother's milk to learning how to catch its own bugs. And then finally feeding itself entirely on books that catches itself. In other words, she's trying to figure out how that babies get weaned from their mommies. That's something we do is human babies, except you know, we don't start eating bugs. It's usually fruit or something avocado. Yeah. But so well, this is a delightful time for humans to spread you know, food all over their faces. This is actually one of the most difficult times in a young bats life. So you're a young bat, you're still growing you're trying to figure out how to fly how to echo locate. How to catch bugs all of this is happening at the same time, and your milk supplies that you're getting fed are decreasing. And so you are expending a ton of energy trying to learn how to be about. And you're the energy. That's coming in is decreasing. So Jessica's goal is to figure out how that process actually works and to do that she has to catch a lot of bats. So we're approaching the mouth of the cave right now. It's a quick hike from the viewing area where I met Jessica to the bat catching spot, and we really just stand right in front of the opening of the cave right in the. Middle because the bats when they're dropping down into the cave from the sky, they sort of aim for the the middle top of the cave. And so that's where the most bats, aren't it gives us our best chance of catching them. So I'm with my technician his name is Harry, and he has the butterfly net. And so he's just going to go ahead and stick the butterfly in that straight up into the air, and he doesn't even have to move. It catch bats with a butterfly net. Like, there's not a special baton at the bat just this circle floating in the air in the fly right into it already caught about and it's been about a split second that he's had the net in the air. So he just reaches end with his hand. And he's wearing a baseball glove or a golf glove. It's just a thin leather gloves to protect himself from that bites. And you might have heard that on the Mike. He just drops the bat into one of the little paper bags that. I'm holding open for him. And so I fully the paper bag over a close it up with clothes pin. And I write the time of capture on the bag. And so it is six fifty two. So there are bad bags. Can you get those at target? You actually can they're like regular Brown paper lunch bags the kind. You would bring the school. And then here's the thing after they catch the bats, the put them in a little cooler. This one's for launch. This one's for the bats. Yeah. There's no ace. It's just to carry the bads. He's already got. He just dropped the second bat into the bag six fifty three. So he's got the nut back up in the air. And he's already caught a third bat. So as I watched from about fifty yards away. I could see Jessica in Harriet standing in the swarm of bats raising and lowering the net like they're picking apples or something. All right. So we have ten bats. So we are just gonna go ahead and carry are cooler with our bags full of bats backup to the top of the sinkhole. So that we can work on our data collection. The data collection is the time consuming part to do that we walked back with the cooler too small clearing where there's a little outdoor lab that would just we have this table set up with all of our equipment on it. And this is where we process the bats. So what exactly does it mean to process a bad like they have to fill out a form and make sure they get their social security number, right? No. It means that they're going to go through a series of steps. To collect information about each bat. It starts with Harry weighing them while they're still inside the lunch bag. So once he's done. I just. Ahead and pull out the bat.

"Thanks for all those super ideas earth Rangers. Now, speaking of super skills, we're going to meet to the world's most powerfully toxic critters in the ultimate showdown. Meet our first contender, the world's most venomous creature, the bucks Jellison it'll be facing off against the world's most poisonous animal. The golden poison frog it's poison versus Benham and wait a second. Are venom and poison different ultimate showdown. Okay. Let's investigate the difference between venom and poison. I a couple of similarities between poisoning. Venom both are called toxins and both are really bad for you. But that's where the similarities end, then empoisoned are different. And the major difference is how the toxin is delivered to the unlucky victim poison has to be ingested. That means eaten or inhaled breath thin or absorbed through the skin. So a poisonous animal could only deliver this poison if another animal or person ate or touched it Benham on the other hand is injected some animals use their fangs to bite some spikes or Spurs were tend to to deliver. Venom of venomous animal has got to get the venom into their victim through a wound poison envenom similar, but not the same. How do I know all the stuff? Let's just say I was bitten by radioactive librarian. Okay. Unpunished the showdown. It's venomous box jellyfish versus poisonous golden frog. Let's see who's toxic superpower is strongest. Round one. The first thing we're going to look at is how easy it would be to encounter one of our toxic contenders. To find a box jellyfish you'd have to head out to the ocean. Mostly the northern coastal waters of stralia and around the Indo Pacific Ocean to find a golden poison frog you have to travel to the Pacific coast rainforests of Colombia. Neither of these toxic critters is easy to find. So I think this round ends in a tie round. Who? Okay. So both of these creatures are pretty tough. But which talks will incapacitate an unlucky victim faster. Who has the most toxic toxin if someone gets stung by a box jellyfish. They're in for a lot of pain sometimes for weeks and weeks after the sting and a box jellyfish sting can definitely fatal as for golden poison frog. They have enough toxin in their skin to kill ten people. That's crazy. Okay. This one goes to the golden poison frog Verschoor. I know round which one looks fiercer. It's the last round time to the side, which of these animals looks the fiercest closure is earth. Rangers. Imagine the beautiful ocean. In the ocean. You see a pale blue transparent jelly like creature. It has a buck shake bell. Best the top part of the jellyfish and the bucks has fifteen long tentacles hanging from each corner. Each tentacle can be up to ten feet long. Also, each tentacle is covered in St. sells out. Now. Imagine you're in a lush green rainforest in Columbia as you're walking. Something catches your eye. We spot a bright yellow frog about five centimeters long. It's incredibly vibrant, and well sort of a door -able, really. But don't touch it or you'll be sorry. Okay. I think the scarier critter in this case is definitely the box jellyfish, tentacle terrifying. So we have a tie both the box jellyfish and the golden poison frog win this showdown. And remember, even though these critters have amazingly talk superpowers, they're definitely not animals you're ever likely to encounter. So don't worry. You're safe. Okay. You're three injures. It's time to talk about a really important mission. I'm going to hand the mic over to captain conservation. And he'll fill you in. Attention earth Rangers. I need you to use your superpowers to help out with something important..

"Pay their Rangers its earth ranger, Emma gear. Okay. The other day when I was out in the field searching fascinating stories for the new season. I'd bumped into a friend of mine safari guide Lawrence from the animal sound safari podcast. He was trying to catch a fish with his bare hands. It didn't really work out Lawrence and his team are podcast friends from Australia. And I think you really like their show animal. Sounds far is all about the weird and wacky stories. We humans have with animals around the world like Roosters saving lives in Portugal or camel, beauty queens in the Middle East. You know, what I think we should take a listen to my favorite episode. It's a story of yet poobah writing warrior, mice in Tibet Google is that all right Lawrence take it away. This is an ABC putt cost. Welcome to animals, sound safari. I'm you'll safari guide Lawrence. It's very mice to meet you, eat safari might take you to a different part of the world to me. A special animal today will be scurrying off to catch up with a quota on your social. And how do we get well in this? Are logical safari Mabille. It's only like the coolest Mabille on the planet. But I did notice it was looking a little ready. So I decided to clean it off a bit. And now it's squeaky-clean today way going to meet a rodent that loves to run up corks and play hide in squeak. Can you guess who it is? It's the mouse. So I've seen my scarring around here and there, but I've never actually had a pet mouse before have you? But I want to know what you already know about this little critter. Myself, quiet smart. And I think mice achie- key and disgusting whenever you see. It's just a blur. And then it goes between you couches and stuff, and you can't see it in my new house to every single time when we move into this like a lot of mice. And then there's some dead. My sometimes disgusting. They can do all the tricks that have tiny legs the ability small, so they can do going to slow spaces. I've been at say Delic disgust noodle. Something good. I wouldn't say they're like fifty and Ida full. Some interesting observations there. Now, let's see what Laura out animal expert has found out. Lawrence debase learns to base. This is Laura I've been here ratting around for facts. You'll jokes are really cheesy today. Laura, actually, I've been spending some time here at base and thinking about mice when it comes to mice us people just concierge to make up L minds OB I pissed all the world's cutest companions. Do. We love them. Like Mickey Mouse. Do they make a scream when they run along the floor. The answer is we feel all of these things about mice. At once this tiny little scarring squeaking ferry animal has had a big effect on him big affect on humans. How what do you mean? I mean, one mouse stealing out cheese. Okay. But when it becomes millions of little mice who become a plague. It's terrifying. These mice can eight their way. Through everything crops and even 'cause talk about a mouse attack. Yeah. These little creed is do have a lot of strength in numbers. This also a long history of mass love in Japan, for example, people kept fancy mice. These were house must that had been dimissed decayed as picks. So your saying that some people think there are too many mice and others want to make more mice. I'm way too confused as little animals have us running a rounding circle. I guess we'll have to make up our own minds on today's safari, then I guess you will speak soon Lawrence over and out. Over and out Laura today where heading to one of the highest spots on the planet to meet our small theory friends where going to two bets. It's in Asia. And it is so beautiful lots of very high mountains. Oh, wait. I just remembered a joke, which is so relevant right now. Ready? What kind of car does a mouse drive? It drives a minivan. You get like a mini van like a small van. Such a joke. The magical Safai Mabille is the opposite of a mouse minivan, though, I mean web big with us where loud and where going come on Hoppy in.

"Earth. We'll tiny muskrat succeed and help rebuild the world. We'll find out after a quick break. Rangers. I'm Rebecca sheer welcome back to circle round today. Our story is called turtle island. When we left off little muskrat had taken a dive into the water, she was seeking soil to rebuild the world after a big flood to other animals otter and beaver had already tried it. They were strong swimmers, but both critters had come up short. So when teeny tiny muskrat volunteered otter and beaver to hopeful. Can you believe that Wimpy thing believes she can save the entire world Polly's? I'm totally with you autre. Did you see how slowly she was going? She won't make it ten feet down before she has a bus backup for breath. I mean, what does she think she's doing I don't know what she thinks? She's doing. But I sure as had no what she is doing. Yeah. Let's making a fool of herself. But why saw things differently patience friends, perhaps we shouldn't be so quick to little muskrat may vary will surprise us old the animals waited for muskrat to return, they waited for one day as they had for autre, then two days they had for beaver, but still no sign of muskrat otter and beaver rolled their eyes. What did I say if I couldn't do it with my extensive diving experience, and I couldn't do it with my superior strength and swimming skills. There's no way muskrat Kim succeed turtles smiled. That's my friends. Succeeds isn't doing knee about experience, the strength the animals waited another whole day and another whole night as the chances of muskrat returning slimmer and slimmer tensions got higher and higher. Get that big paddle of tail off of me will I would offer if you weren't taking half my space weights 'Second as the Pickering continued a small ripple formed in the water. Turtle was the only one who noticed any kind of deal like that. Stoop cliff? She gestured toward the water. As author and beaver shut their mouths and peered over the side of the log, what did they see floating on the surface of the water, but muskrat she was barely breathing. Turtle. Hurry to scoop the tiny creature up. Oh, most grant to y'all. Turtle gently laid muskrat on the log. She was too exhausted to talk all she could do was open one bright I and give turtle week grin beaver and otter screed over to see what was going on. She doesn't look so good. Not good at all as turtle stroked muskrats soaking wet for she noticed something muskrats tiny fist was clenched tightly when turtle reached down and uncurling muskrats clause. Can you guess what she found inside must grant you did it you boots soil back from the bottom? Oh, I knew you could do it little one that just no otter and beaver couldn't believe their eyes. But they quickly wiped the surprise looks off their faces. A we. We believed in new to muskrat. Good job kid. Yeah. Yeah. Didn't doubt you for a second. Welcome back. Turtle looks down at muskrat than fixed otter beaver with a steady gaze. Oh, right friends. Here is what we must do take the soil for muskrats grew. And please it on my show. Pat it down with water, so it sticks. Then we can begin the work of rebuilding all world. Carefully otter into beaver followed turtles instructions they scooped up the dirt for muskrat and petted it onto turtle's shell immediately. The wind picked up as gusts blew in from all four directions the soil on turtle's shell began to spread. It spread all across her back. And then kept spreading soon. The ridges of turtles back transformed into valleys hills and mountains and grass trees and bushes began to sprout from the soil before long turtle was bearing the weight of a whole new land after all that little muskrat had done. It was the least the wise creature could do. Today. Many people refer to this new continent as North America. But some members of the jib way group and other Canadian first nations tribes, call it turtle island, and if you look closely on a map, perhaps you can make out the shape of turtle, and maybe just maybe a hint of muskrats tiny, but mighty touch.

So without further ado, I'll hand you off to my friend. Rebecca, he's going to tell you the story of turtle island. Produced by the island at WB. You are Boston. Have you ever felt small?

We'll meet an animal who knows exactly how you feel and she sets out to prove that sometimes the tiniest among us can be the most powerful of all. Rebecca share and welcome to circle round. We're storytime happens. All the time. Today. Our story is called turtle island. It comes from the folklore of the jib wake group of the first nations people of Canada. We developed this episode with our Canadian friends at the earth Rangers podcast, and you'll hear some of their voices, including Leigh Lawson also known as earth ranger, Emma. They'll also here right chase, Rebecca Galarza and Suzie McGrath three voices from another of our fellow kid casts. The puny by Kobe Bryant. So circle round everyone for turtle island. Long long ago. The great spirit known as kitschy Manitou was watching over all the people of the earth. But the ruler of the world was not happy with what he saw. No one was getting along the treated one another so poorly. They argued about who owned what that's my fish. Are you kidding? That was my fish trap. They insulted each other. You're the slowest person I've ever seen. No, your the slowest person I've ever seen. You are. No, you are as they gossiped. Like there was no tomorrow. Can you believe how selfish us he hunted all afternoon on someone else's hunting grounds? Then brought everything back to the village and shared it with his family as if he'd cut it on his own land. It was chaos kitschy Manitou had a strong helper named Thunderbird one day. The great spirit told Thunderbird. Heard. It was time to start over to cleanse the earth and get rid of all this bad energy. But kitschy Manitou wanted those who were good or at least trying to be good to be saved. Thunderbird? Do me this favor lift you'll wings and take flight? Give a tap to all those who are are Moni, and peaceful and tell them to get ready for a big flood urge them to build rafts and boats and prepare to swim one week from today, the great brains will begin to fall so Thunderbird did as she was told a week later. Sure enough, the rains began to fall and fall and fall. Soon. The land was flooded. The people saved by Thunderbirds warnings stayed in their boats and on their rafts once the rain stopped a group of animals climbed up onto a single log in the middle of the water. There was a venturous otter wets up folks that was some rain eager beaver. Sure was what a close one scrappy muskrat. Thank goodness we all survived and wise, turtle who had received some valuable advice from Thunderbird before the flood. Listen if we were. Now that we have made it through the flood. There is one way we can build on that. And. End Thunderbirds says only need is a handful of earth from the bottom of this water that should help us get things going again turtle lifted her wrinkled legs one by one with these stubby legs. It would take me forever to peddle the way down and back again. So I wonder could any of you swim to the bottom grab some of the below and Benito up to this is. I can't utter always raised her hand. I she loved a good challenge, a usual. Ulta. We don't even know how deep this wall to is. Oh, I've got this. I'll be back before you can save two. Shakes of an otter tail author lifted her paw and gave the other animals a high five then she leapt off the log and dove into the water with a splash beaver turtle and muskrat watched otter swim deeper and deeper soon her slender furry body had disappeared completely minutes past then hours, then an entire day the animals were beside themselves with worry until. Well, the good news as I'm back. But the bad news is I couldn't find any earth, I dove again, and again and just never reached the bottom. I'm willing to try one more time, but I'll need to rest first turtle cocked her head to one side. Thank you for trying to. I'm sure I speak for everyone. When I say, I'm glad you're okay. But you need to rest. Let's give someone else a child's. Any takes me me me. Turtle nodded at beaver. Oh beaver. There's no doubt about it. You all a strong swimmer? I sure am. And looking for things is my middle name one leaves twigs unit. I can find it beaver was so excited he slapped his pedal of a tail on the log as it bobbed up and down in the water. He other animals grabbed on with their feet and claws. No, go, right. Me you go get it will do this busy beaver is about to save the world. And with that he flashed a big grin jumped from the log and landed in the water with a splash now as with otter beaver took his time two days later, he returned to the log. And when he did he was breathless and didn't check did. I'm so sorry friends. But I couldn't find any dirt. I must've done dozens of times. But I couldn't find the bottom of the water. Sheesh. How could it be anyway? Turtle gave beaver a smile be. I'm so relieved your who. Right. I don't know how much longer this. Love can keep us afloat move. How much longer the people can live on their offs? And in that bodes not to mention the bugs who have no place to land. We need to figure out something. The group was silent for a moment as they punctured their potential fate. Then suddenly well little muskrat piped up.
