Why do Monkeys throw Poo? How do Salamanders regrow Body Parts? How do Whales Sleep?

Friday, 5 July

Hello and welcome to episode 32 of Everything Under the Sun! This week I went to the Bradford Literary Festival to talk about my books, The Secret Museum, WOW Museums, Natural Wonders of the World as well as Everything Under The Sun. When I was there talking to 400 children we all recorded a question, from Darrell who was one of the children at the talk. It is - why do monkeys throw poo? We find out the reason and chat about some of the 260 species of monkey! 

Next up we have a question about Salamanders from Oscar, answered by Nick Caruso, who studies salamanders in the Appalachian mountains of North America. Nick has also co written a book called Does it Fart? With Dani Rabaiotti, which you could get lucky and win if you enter the competition on this week’s podcast. 

We also talk about howwhales sleep in the water, how they remember to breathe and how their babies sleep and swim.

Do enter the competition and send in your questions to molly@everythingunderthesun.co.uk.

Remember, the questions will now also be in a BOOK, I need all the questions soon as I’m busy writing away so please do send them in as soon as you can! 

If you like the show people do rate, review and subscribe and tell all your friends to do the same, it really does help! 

A huge thank you to Nick Caruso for talking to us about salamanders, another big thank you to Darrell and all the children who came to see me at Bradford literary festival for your question and being so much fun as well as to as Oscar and Lily for this week’s lovely questions!  

Wishing you all a very lovely week!

Thank you and GOODBYE! X
