Gross Facts About Animals

In this episode, the crew shares a whole bunch of really, really gross animal facts. If you do not like being grossed out, DO NOT listen to this episode! Animals include a toad that gives birth by baby toads breaking through the skin on its back, a lizard that shoots blood from its eyes, an animal that feasts on human skin, and a sea cucumber that shoots out its internal organs.

We have a lot of show notes today. Here are the promised links, plus a picture of the Surinam toad (beware this picture is gross!).
