Dr. Dani Rabaiotti
Slimy Creatures of the Animal Kingdom
When most people think of slime, a few words typically come to mind: gross, disgusting, and nauseating. What about versatile? Dr. Dani Rabaiotti, co-author of ‘Believe It Or Snot” has some pretty amazing examples of slime being used effectively, be it as a weapon, a defense mechanism, or even as a house! Listen as we discuss nests made out of spit, sleeping bags made out of mucus, and even fish that releases so much goo it chokes any predator that comes near!
*BONUS* – Weaponized Flatulence
Everyone knows farts are hilarious, but what about useful? Listen as Dr. Rabaiotti and I talk about subduing a bee hive by passing gas, how termites produce 19% of the planet’s methane, and how the octopus is absolutely fart free.
