Thorny Devil

It’s Teddy’s favorite animal, the Thorny Devil! Join us as we learn all about this six-inch mountain dragon. It’s got more defense mechanisms than any other animal we’ve studied (including a fake head – cool!) and has a very interesting way of drinking (foot water anyone?).

We have two kid power challenges this week – and great job to Nadia and Reagan for participating in our last challenge! You can pick up a bag of trash, or take steps to reduce your water consumption. Did you do the challenge? Or the creature quiz? Let us know at or on Twitter at @coolanimalspod

And send us your questions or cool facts! We want to put together an episode inspired by you.
