Cool Facts About Animals

143 EpisodesProduced by Cool Facts About AnimalsWebsite

This is a podcast by and for kids giving you the coolest facts about the coolest animals. We research our episodes carefully, distilling the information into manageable segments, focusing on the things that really make these animals unusual. Thanks for listening!



Piranhas get a bad rap. They’re thought of as vicious, human killing machines. While piranhas do have some impressive teeth and an even more impressive bite force, they’re really not quite as dangerous as they’re made out to be. In this episode, we do some piranha myth busting and learn more about this impressive creature.

Thank you to RACC for our audio equipment. We really think you can tell the difference! We’re so glad to be able to share some clearer audio with you.

Thank you also to Andrew Barkan of Earsnacks for our theme music.

Finally, if you would like to support us financially,  head on over to our Patreon page! We are using the money raised there for some in-person trip (once safe to do so) to meet with scientists and share our interviews with you.
