"How to dress should I be a baby? And he said he had your like your other son turns to next to suck us once so you're responsible for babysitting this weekend. Exactly. Exactly. So Jonathan the first thing I wanted to ask you was give us an explanation of exactly what your role is in Lee County. Like what is the job of the Republican chair? So there's a Republican chair in each of Florida 67 counties. There's also a Democrat chair and in fact sixty Seven Counties as well, the executive committee's of each County are created by Florida Statutes the idea of creating them by Statute was to protect their branding and protect your name identity. So a lot of Republicans couldn't get together and go start a Democrat Party just to make fun of them or make them look bad and then the other way around so there's there's a system the Democrat Party of Florida the Republican party of Florida their birth Made up of the individual County chairs and also their state committee met in state committeewoman and we just had elections in in Lee County and in Collier County during the primary and there's there's new state committee managing in Collier County in New State committeeman in Lee County. And how did you how did you rise to this position or why do you want this job or you know, how do wind up doing this so I think for most for most active political volunteers you you watch some T. You read the paper you talk to friends and family or maybe you're an industry where you see a lot of a lot of opportunity to fix statutes and to make some changes either in the state or local level and and you want to get more plugged in and and sometimes you stumble across the executive committee's other times. You have a neighbor or a friend who who tells you guys existence, but I think we're a little bit more active and public than we used to be but that's usually how somebody gets their gets their first experience and the executive committee and anybody can be 1 a.m. If there's an opening in your Precinct, you can become a Precinct committee person and there's there's openings and most of our precincts throughout the county. Some of them are filled in the more active dog. Is but that's how people get started. I'm elected as the chair not by the county as a whole like the state committee may have said committee one, but I'm elected by the members of the executive committee who are the precinct individuals the precinct members. So Jonathan one of the things I noticed when we moved down here is this is like a republican stronghold like I mean, it's there's it just seems like there's no way a Democrat can win. How did that happen? Well, I think the people that move here are happy and and we tend to attract happier people to the to the Republican party that we have an incredible amount of of hard-working retirees that came down to Southwest Florida whether it was for the slower pace of life than the East Coast..

Biden rallies establishment in bid to turn back Sanders
"Biden Wins. Every county in South Carolina from the hills to the C. Colossal victory in the first representative state. Is this the second day of the rest of his political life? Well it certainly feels that way. I mean look at the last forty eight hours. You have money which he hasn't had you've had endorsements you have people on the hill rallying around him. There's a Russian expression I think Peter might know it Success has its own aroma. That when you start winning that something happens that there's sort of an aura. People wanted to see him win. It's not just that he won one really big. And the the proportion of the African American vote the way he dominated constituency which is so important in a Democratic primary centene incredibly powerful message to people who had been wavering about him Peter Baker I recall a donald trump using biden's name a time or two in the past. Have you any evidence about how the president is processing the Biden Victory in South Carolina? I'm really what it may mean for the rest of the race. Look I think we know that the president would rather see Bernie Sanders. He's Kinda Telegraph that as his opponent. Candidates are notoriously bad picking their opposition. They they may not always have the right decision on that. But I see the contrast between the socialist and his version of capitalism as advantageous choice for the fall so tonight at the Rally. You heard him go. After Biden. Newly Resurgent Biden. Pretty harsh terms. He mocked him as feeble minded. Kind of has been ridiculed the vice president for his verbal gaffes lately confusing names saying that could be tomorrow's Super Thursday instead of Tuesday that kind of thing and he seemed to relish it but at the same night is trying to stir the pot. He's trying to get the sanders supporters. Upset whatever happens if he would lose if he were to lose. The president is saying is because it was a coup. That was the phrase there. Were he used today? I think on twitter because he wants to say they're the establishment is stealing it from Bernie Sanders in his view. He wins either way. He gets a candidate he wants and Bernie Sanders and a stark choice. Or you know. He gets a moderate Democrat to face but makes the laughter try get the left anyway. Upset BECAUSE BERNIE. Sanders did get what he says is fair do congresswoman. It's hard to imagine and fast forward through the history of the Democratic Party to a time where there has been one colossal consensus figure in the Democratic Party coming off his historic two-term presidency. He and the former first lady are often at the very top of opinion polls for most admired man. Most admired woman talk about the Barack Obama effect potentially on this election. Well I think it's a significant effect and I don't think it just rest with president former President Obama. I think you know when you look at people who were central to the Obama Administration now coming out in support of Joe Biden. That is in some ways telegraphing where the OBAMAS are and so. This shouldn't be a surprise me. We in some ways it would be kind of odd. Obviously if Vice President Biden didn't get the support of these allies of President Obama. We'd be all over that that. I do know Susan. Rice endorsed today among others. Well she did and I think that you know when you look at the range of endorsers especially today from Susan Rice and shoring up the foreign policy backing Joe Biden on domestically to have better work. Stand there along with Buddha judge or with char that makes a huge difference. Those are big signals sometimes. Endorsements don't matter at all in a campaign and we overestimate that but these were big Carolina. I'd like to read from you. The work of Jonathan Martin and Alex Burns over at your outfit very simply. The headline tells the story frozen in anxiety. How Democratic leaders leaders struggled to confront Bernie Sanders What is the story mean for the future potentially of the Democratic Party? Well it means a couple of things one if you look at that story part of the reason that they had a difficult time building consensus at that point around. Biden is because the campaign was really bad. The candidate was not reaching out to people as obvious as Harry Reid. The money was not coming in. Joe Biden was running in a very old fashioned way. He didn't have the base of say small donors and I think that story gets that and I think everyone should read. It is really the tension that might erupt if the Democrats are successful in kind of building up Biden as the Anti Bernie and prevailing like do they risk alienating. Some of the young people especially young men have gotten excited about Bernie Sanders to your first point. Sometimes people just like to be asked Harry. Reid came out in the last twenty four hours and endorsed but as they say that would have been nice lovely before the primary in his State. But actually you're raising a good point because today. I don't know if you've heard Biden's remarks he asked for people's help. He asked for their support. So somebody is sort of getting that message to him and Dunn Edwards a blatantly political question. What do you do about the split in the party? What do you do if you arrive at your convention? You'll be there and Bernie Sanders has slightly more of the delegates and that there's a group that wants to nominate Joe by first of all. I hope that we actually don't get to that point because I think it is really difficult. One and I would urge Democrats to stop running the Anti Bernie Campaign. They can run a campaign that elevates Joe Biden support coalescence around Joe Biden without sort of putting a knife in the Bernie Sanders supporters. I think that would be wrong for our party. And it certainly will not help us coming out of the Convention to have fully United Party. I mean Bernie has said that he's committed to that and I actually believe him on that point and I don't think he's GonNa be used as a pawn by Donald Trump. Should he not get the nomination but exit and that kind of exit is really important and so we have to figure that out? And I don't know yet whether burning might have enough to go into the convention and consolidate support and get the nomination. That could still happen. I do think for all you viewers watched Texas if Joe Biden does really well there I think in in Bernie a does well on Super Tuesday but Joe Biden has enough reason in enough momentum to to really challenge him in a number of places. I think there's a really good shot that we go and I'm not just saying this because I've dreamed about it as a reporter forever but that we go to a convention and have a contested convention you guys are on different teams just simply just because the anxiety for anti I get it. Zantac sales will spike Peter. I've got a tweet from Aaron. Blake over at the Washington Post again to keep things fair. Republican members of Congress haven't sent one tweet or press release mentioning Burris Ma or Hunter Biden since February seventh per alleged storm. One day after Biden Win South Carolina. Senator Johnson of Wisconsin sends this letter on a Sunday. No less Sometimes Peter the Republicans are Director. Never Ironic fifth well. Look you know. Burris wasn't necessary in the Republican. Playbook when Biden was down and out he was a fourth-place fifth-place finisher and the early primary states and they had bigger fish to fry at that point. It was Michael Bloomberg on the rise Bernie Sanders on the rise. They were focused on them. Now Biden of course is resurgent. You're going to hear a lot. More about Burris men Hunter Biden. And that's something that Democrats have to take into consideration is they picked their nominee because it is a subject. They're going to have to address the fall. If Joe Biden is their nominee either got to figure out how they're going to answer it how they're going to defend against going explain it. Some of these things can be dismissed as well. President trump was exaggerating. But there are some things that are genuinely troubling to a lot of voters even Democrats who have been disturbed by by some of what they've seen so this is a big factor in a way the Republicans are trying to stir the pot here before Super Tuesday. But it's a reminder that we're playing we're not playing ball and this is going to be a big contest come the fall. Whoever's the nominee Peter you're around to cover the Obama White House year among the former presidents biographers when people ask you what you saw of the relationship between President and Vice President? How easy was the relationship that kind of thing? How do you answer? That's a good question. I didn't start off that easy. In fact these are two very different kinds of personalities. They came from different generations. Different backgrounds different experience levels different introvert extrovert kind of ways of dealing with people but over the years they were together they really did bond in a pretty significant way. I think certainly you saw that by the time. Beau Biden died and Barack Obama gave the eulogy at the funeral. That was about as close a bonding moment as you can imagine between two political figures that doesn't necessarily mean he. He thought that Barack Oh so he thought that Joe Biden necessarily the best candidate to run this year. I think the Rock Obama had his concerns but now that we're facing a choice between Bernie Sanders and one other candidate. You can sorta see as as you put it as Kelly and her colleagues wrote the subtle hand of of Obama coming into play here which clearing the field to some extent of the the other Moderate alternatives that is a biden versus sanders. Kind of contest. Everybody Strap in Super Tuesday star. Hours are great thanks to Peter Baker to Caroline Ryan to Donna Edwards for starting off on manic

"I'm not really surprised that Sanders won progressive fight in Iowa but I think what the moderates communicated and getting behind Buddha judge who worked really hard to get these voters You know who. Oh I'm he perceives not being that different in terms of a mid western sensibilities Than than himself is that they want a new face even within the moderate Lane so I think even closure wasn't new enough no not at all and I think a lot of times people think support for buying. It is about going back to the Obama days but I think backing Buddha judge said we like these politics and this ideology but we still wanted to be fresh and maybe four thinking and and I think that was a a a you know fact that we dan consider in terms of where where that wing of the Democratic Party would go timur. I was out there two weeks ago I think in one night I saw Biden and Fort Dodge which is sort of smallest community but you can call it a real town it is. It's a small. I'd call it a big town town big town now quite a small part of the state. That doesn't have a lot of downs the next day I was with Mayor Pete in in Dubuque which is more of a small city on the Mississippi River. The crowds were completely different. The energy The age the diversity. Everything about the events could not have been more different. That's part because the two communities that's also because the candidate it was clear then that Buddha judge had some ahead some energy that Biden didn't have and and a caucus that matters so much because again you have to be willing to show and stay there for a few hours and and that really helped Footage Iowans like the new young. The fresh them next Silmi. That's GonNa make them feel good about themselves and I they had one I would democrats say look. Pete reminds all of a sudden grandson and I always joke. That he's what he's what older. Folks want millennials correct but millennials any. Oh don't want they don't but you know what Eugene I would just say this you look at the entrance poll and you look at if you look at it as a demographic resume right okay for everybody. He's the best all around. He had the best resume he was second. Yes he was a number one among millennials. But he wasn't dead last he wasn't number one among old people. Dead last Bernie was dead. Last among old folks and Biden was dead last among young folks. I think it'll be interesting because a lot has been then written about how you know He. Is You know the choice. Have grandparents that what they want. Their young young exciting to be in his team hasn't been pushed back on that or offended by that. Ah Portrayal older people vote. I was GONNA say everyone keeps talking about you. Know The millennials being the largest voting block This go around and they are but they are the largest largest turnout block. But when a per- percentage it's matted matter it'll be interesting to see what changes they take moving forward if there will be any more you. You know millennials surrogate if he will be more aggressive unlike outreach at college to try to win some of those yeah he's got an opportunity now to present himself himself as not as far left as Bernie but not as we're status quo as Biden. Somebody they can actually appeal to their generational bases the Bernie a young bride. No and I think he's going to try to do that. The question I have belt after the last few months is is he ever GonNa win over non white and I just. I don't know how he fixes that the challenge winning can help. Winning helps and winning twice in a row really held. That's right if he goes into into Nevada to know Nevada. Look a heck of a lot different. Oh I I totally agree either and I think I got three. Oh by the way I gotTa think Michael Bloomberg regrets not falling in the primary. He had he decided he decided not to filed literally wait until the next day and filed in the superior taste about South Carolina for mistakes. That's an he should have. He should've said no caucus right. I get that and try to primaries. There's only okay yeah. Look Tom. Steyer has made inroads and taking votes from Joe Biden South Carolina almost entirely by virtue of TV ad that blooming Grove also afforded Eugene. Part of me also thinks that Bernie is not getting properly dinged for what I think was a disappointing showing for him. Because look at it this way and I think we all thought I think the most shocking number to me in the entrance hall was that there were more people who were Hillary Clinton supporters from the last time that people caucus than Bernie supporters. And and you know you heard the same thing I heard. We have eighty thousand people here. That Caucus Bernie the last time. All we need is half of them and we win this thing okay. I thought they were going to overwhelm the place. They didn't overwhelm the place. They did get hammered and polk county which was a problem. They didn't have support across ideological lines nor across regional lines even I think Bernie showed the ceilings lower than we thought and I wonder if that was because of One one of two reasons one. The impeachment stuff required him to blanket. You know in in Washington wet blanket for turnout for all he has. He has some high. I profile surrogate so I saw a representative Ilhan Omar out there but people wanna see the candidate and so his absence. I think hurt him. Also in terms of Clinton supporters I mean one should ask Hillary Clinton coming out repeatedly criticizing Bernie Sanders. Does it hurt. Hey speaking of the Hillary Bernie raisins my my colleague Neko and had a really good observation based on our poll that we did a couple of weeks ago which had Bernie up but but actually had pete second and was revealing was the breakdown of support between this field based on the the twenty sixteen county map. Yup and you can see where Pete strength was on the the northern and southern border of Iowa where Hillary was doing the best and six thirty five. It was right. I mean the right out right along I thirty I thirty five right. Yeah North and South and that's where Hillary did dwell and that's where pizza because he had time especially in final weeks. Yeah folks word to it through an impeachment. He had time to get five events a day and by the way he was doing five. A day still is usually two the three day five events today in all our communities especially when my thing chuck this was bewildering to me. Why was he only culet for president on the Sunday shows it was before who P yes? Trust me we'll be able to ourselves. I mean but then the hub for you. I know Joe Biden Day. There's no Democrat has been on. Meet the press more than Joe Biden and he has yet to appear on meet the press. Two Thousand Sixteen right and all that does screams is. They don't WanNa they don't WanNa because it's not just it's usually happy to do the TV shows that have been holding back on Sunday. And by the way not just Sunday Monday morning the the network and the cable shows now he was relentless I mean he was all over. TV and I. It's an older demographic they watch TV voters watch TV. But that's the story. I mean that's how it became Buddha. jags I hits music television. That goes on everything from like the breakfast club Youtube to more traditional TV. Who did this and sixteen a guy named Donald all trump? Yeah absolutely absolutely and I mean you know said after Iowa. He had about an hour of sleep. Maybe two hours and I believe the the guys in Litchfield Industry magazine Right. That's the thing the opening. Although I have not heard that joke in a long time God retired it's effective because especially when nobody else is doing it yes no. It's unreal issues to himself Ginsburg it. It's it's it is bizarre. I want to introduce one of the theories to Biden's problem that hasn't been talked about and I think it's this. I think the Iran debate at the beginning of January reminded. Because you talked about these moderate voters. Eugene wanted that some people looked at Biden and said Oh yeah we want to go back to Obama Obama but then what did the Iran debate remind everybody up. Oh Biden voted for the Iraq war. Yeah it's one of those and then suddenly if you're a moderate voter doesn't like Bernie the but but that judgment matters to you will then suddenly. Who's your choice it? I think that was a bigger a problem for Biden and look pulling hasn't surfaced it but that is win. He felt like he hit a wall. Especially when you're competing against someone who went to the war and had some some stories to tell about how difficult was and how it affected you know people ended. I was at a rally of Buddha. Just he talked about how much he loves coming island and how he ran into someone at the airport that he served with and like got to tell her story and is able to do all of that for someone who's Kinda reminescent of the Obama era while portraying himself as the next Obama so it just works for him in a couple of ways to take in a different direction. I think the most important day for ability judge was the day that trump came out in the White House and said that we are not going to respond to the Iranian attacks on the US based in Iraq and that we were not going to get into a shooting war with Iran. That's a key for because if we do get into a shooting war with a ROM and we're in our third hot war in the region I it becomes very hard for for a young player to be a commander in chief even given his military experience. I think once that moment faded and this thing about the trump era nothing laughing asking why we are on the verge of World War One day by the Caucasus. Three weeks later it basically. It's forgotten and I think it was forgotten once. We are backed way conventional race. A Gift repeat it is let me ask you the Biden riddle this this way. I feel like we're all sort of ringing our hands. Is it already over. And we just aren't ready to fully say it because he's the former vice president he's too formidable in the polls and all all this or are we actually giving them too hard of a time about his performance in Iowa. Either both in no I mean that's sort of cop out of I think it's kind of third way. I mean I think. I think there has been skeptical more skeptical coverage now the human fourth. But let's get the miles to win something something that is in South Carolina. He's gotTa know he can't wait this here on his guide. My point weight. Well yeah he can't keep yeah. I mean I think Nevada's pivotal to and he knew Newham if he finishes Fourth of New Hampshire can explain to me how he does well in Nevada. I'm well I I was GONNA say Latino Vogler voters which I know like Sanders. Anders is improving with. But I mean with women comes to black and Latino voters I mean you cannot write off. Someone who is leaning with these demographics has been for most of the Rates especially when the alternative for moderate is someone who's doing terribly with Black Latino only speak Spanish. I believe the only person that speaks fluent Spanish in this field as Pete. Yeah but I mean it's gone. Yeah it's not turning out to vote. I mean like Buddha Buddha judged by them with winning black voters against against black people candidate right not to pander to John Ralston but I think Nevada could really matter this tide you too because it's the it's the first state that not only has a more diverse demographic you know I now Hispanic black but also because it's a regular Democrats state. What do I mean Democrats Democrats? They vote in blocks here. You read a huge force machines day exactly. Yeah it's a caucus state with regular Democrats. Joe Biden can't regular Democrats from the Labor movement and from the party structure who are black Asian. He's one years my feeling Nevada and I'm a little bit cynical this way. I don't think the caucuses mature enough for voters to overwhelm overwhelm the machine. Okay in Iowa. The Caucus got mature enough where party leaders couldn't sort of wire it. Yeah why are you. Yes that is still wireless. I think it is right. And because of this Culinary Union power obviously I think there's a huge problem for Bernie right because the Culinary Union Union loves their healthcare plan. Okay and they don't like Medicare for all so that that's a big problem. I guess the question is is it does it become Emma Stop Burning Movement at any source and so does it help anybody who's in second meaning..
Trump can’t win in 2020. But Democrats can lose.
"Our next guest says Donald Trump can't win reelection but the Democrats kratz shirt can lose it so over the weekend some of the President's Republican allies in Congress. There are many wasted no time defending him as pressure builds now over over this impeachment inquiry. I think this whole thing is a sham. I can't believe we're talking about impeaching the president based on an accusation based on hearsay. Look Look Democrats wanted to impeach because Rudy Giuliani talked to a couple of Ukrainians and good luck with that. What do you make of this exchange. Presidents Alinsky says we are almost ready to buy Roy Moore from the United States for defense purposes and president trump replies. I would like you to do us a favor though you just added another word no favor though yesterday in the transcript so that's kind of how that went and with us us for more tonight is Rick Wilson Longtime Florida Man Longtime Republican strategist who is soon following up on his first book. Everything trump touches dies with a new Work Ryan against the devil which is due out in early twenty twenty. It is a thrill to have you as always thank you sir so tonight. I am reminded Sean Spicer danced to Saturday night fever on dancing with the stars and Sebastian Gorka is on board a US government plane with our secretary three of state going to Europe. We saw that selection of trump allies. There's a whole population the people in Washington who think this might be ballgame here. There are a lot of very nervous folks right now and they're thinking that they've tried to hide in the tall grass for a long time they play the Magi game when they have to and they quietly whispered reporters. I'm really concerned. My Brow is furrowed. I'm deeply deeply troubled and they understand that there's a point where you can't can't just keep pretending and we're rapidly reaching the point where you can't just keep pretending and you know what was bill bar doing in Italy. Why are they making. These phone calls to Australia. We want more the details about Ukraine Gorkhas probably in Europe pitching fish oil tablets or whatever it is he does for a living now but these guys are all of the peace there this flotsam watson around trump so many involved in this and I hope they're all tonight pondering second mortgages so they can lawyer up. Can you imagine what it feels like for the Aussies as a lover and appreciator of history there we were side by side on the beaches of Normandy what we want from them now a little information so help us help us blackmail a competitor in a political election the US they're trying to extort foreign powers by using the Awesome Awesome Majesty of the President's Office and the powers of the United States government trying to extreme. It's just it's the lowest level thug behavior. I have a dramatic reading from the twitter account of Jonathan Martin with New York Times. It's about politics and you're political party. The squeeze is on Republicans left in high income congressional districts and states here is college plus Weitz. I just love how demographers instantly reduce entire groups of Americans against forty six percent already for impeach and remove fifty two percent for the inquiry fifty-seven percent believe trump thinks he's above the law just one percent percent fewer believe he abuses the power of his office fifty one percent believe he's committed crimes as president so you start thinking wow the Republicans should be very nervous us then. I look at Rick Wilson. Down and trump can't win reelection but the Democrats can certainly lose it. It's an old problem explain. The Democrats crafts have a great gift for snatching defeat from the jaws of victory unless they have generational candidates who are who are who have phenomenal skills they had to in our lifetime they had Barack Obama and they had Bill Clinton who are both naturally gifted political figures. They understand how to connect with people. They have charisma for days. None none of the current field reaches that level of performance and I think the danger that I've seen coming at the at the Democratic Party for a long time. Now is a lot of them. I'm still believe that this is going to be a referendum about policy. Selections a referendum as all presidents relations are about trump. They are all referendum. All the referendum referendum thought in this election is going to be trump or not trump ex future or wife future. If you want is trump's kicking you in the face until all eternity well well then re elect Donald Trump. If you want to argue about policy your re-electing Donald Trump it's you've got trump hands them right now the opportunity to go after him as a man who is corrupt corrupt who was ineffective and who was who has led this country into a place where the reputation of our president as as as an extortionist and a mercenary when our president tosses tosses out a reference to a civil war right. I think that that is again. This is a way to make a referendum on this man what kind the president in this country other than the unless he's Got Jefferson Davis fantasies wants to go out and have their reputation. Be You know re tweeting and praising somebody nobody who who's threatening a civil war if he doesn't get to operate above the law if he doesn't get to be unaccountable in every way and that this is the kind of thing that trumpism has normalized in our country and it's a great danger. Brian Jeff Flake Consensus Hall of fame furrowed Brow Hall of fame member Concern Concern Face Hall of fame member says to his fellow Republicans is there still time to save your souls others remember flake like as the guy who saved cavanaugh right before skipping town not the best guy to make that argument look I would prefer and there it will be a tremendous first-mover advantage for some seated member of the US Senate right now to make that point and to recognize that Donald Trump will drag every single one of them under and they will drown and die politically if they don't start breaking away. This is the problem that nine hundred seventy three and seventy four caught us in nineteen seventy-three. The Republicans were lockstep on Nixon. If you go back it was all it's a media conspiracy against the president. It's liberal elites against the president well in one thousand nine hundred eighty four the voters of the United States decided that fifty four forty nine Republicans needed to go home forever and that eight members of the Republican Senate needed to go the home forever. This is a political consequence of a corrupt president who abuses power right now donald trump and the thing about Nixon Nixon was not about money. Nixon was not about Personal Game Nixon was in the game because that was his character trump is venal trump wants political power so he can continue can you to enrich himself and his family and this is a category above even Richard Nixon and that takes a lot of doing Rick Wilson a thank you so much this survey serves a pleasure to have you on our
Why Do Flying Squirrels Glow Hot Pink in UV Light?

Like, you smart water has added electrolytes for taste and great tasting water helps you stay hydrated, feeling refreshed and ready to take on your day. Refresh yourself with smart water. Welcome to brain stuff from how stuff works. Hey, rain stuff, Lauren Vogel. Bam here. It's amazing. What you can find. If you shine a flashlight into your backyard trees, a biologist in Wisconsin have made a rather startling discovery that way in part startling because it apparently hadn't been recorded until now three different species of flying. Squirrels specifically southern northern and Humboldt flying squirrel, which are found across North America and into Central America sport light Brown for that when spotlighted with ultra-violet illumination lights up a hot bubblegum pink the phenomenon occurs on both the top and bottom services of the flying. Squirrels though, it's the underside of a flying. Squirrels carriage, including the flaps of skin that spread out when the squirrel glides from tree to tree really glows Jonathan Martin a biologist at Northland college in Ashland. Wisconsin made the discovery in the forest one evening just by shining a UV flashlight into the tree canopy he was looking for lichens, which are certain type. Of frogs and flora that light up in UV light. That's when he heard the church of a southern flying, squirrel as the squirrel glided by he shined the flashlight on it. And he saw a flash of fuchsia. Martin and his colleagues soon found themselves examining the skins of flying. Squirrels at the science museum of Minnesota. And the field museum in Chicago. They took photos of the skins under visible, light and ultra violet light all but one specimen of the gliders glowed pink that has been variously compared to bubble gum dayglo and lycra from the nineteen eighty s there is also the study republished in the January twenty third twenty nineteen issue of the journal of Malecki, the pink is caused the researchers say by the furs fluorescence, which is what happens when light is absorbed in one wavelength and emitted in another you may remember an episode. We did about how scorpions fluorescent bright green and ultraviolet light some birds also have this trait some fish too few mammals do though flying. Squirrels are nocturnal and are most active at dusk and dawn, no other squirrels in North America are known to possess this ability to floor s including tree squirrels like the eastern gray though, there are over. Two hundred and fifty squirrel species around the world and to be fair. The researchers have not yet tested other species for the next question is what purpose could this fluorescent serve. Humans can't see ultraviolet wavelengths except under special lighting, but other animals can one theory suggests the pink is used to confuse als, which as it turns out also have undersides that Flores a similar pink ELS prey on flying.
