This show is for people who have — or are curious about owning — any of the birds, snakes or small mammals who are considered exotic pets — from bunnies to iguanas, and parrots to ferrets. Dr. Karen will help you understand the physical requirements of these animals and how to avoid most of the medical problems these pets can develop once you understand the often challenging proper environment and correct diet that are essential to their welfare. Co-host Karen Rosenthal, DVM, MS, has an impr ...
 
An exotic pet is a rare or unusual creature kept as a pet, or a creature kept as a pet which is not commonly thought of as a pet. The definition is an evolving one; some rodents, reptiles, and amphibians have become firmly enough established in the world of animal fancy to no longer be considered exotic. Sometimes any unique or wild-looking pet (including common domestic animals such as the ferret and the domestic rat) is called an exotic pet. "Exotic" may also be used for a species which is ...

How much wood would a Woodcock chuck if a Woodcock could chuck wood?

All…
 
The Giant Silkworm Moths may be masters as public speaking, but Bob Tarte shows he’s no sow’s-ear slouch, either, as he and Book Character Bill Holm extol the virtues and shortcoming of Bob’s latest book, Feather Brained. This is part two of a patience-straining nearly-one-hour talk about birds, birding, and flimflamming the general public on a sun…
 
Two doors leading into the Degraaf Nature Center in Holland, Michigan, were each marked with a sign.

It’s a total turnaround as Bob and Book Character Bill Holm enjoy a wind-free, warbler-filled new morning of birding at Magee Marsh.

Do they or do they not stumble upon a breeding warbler that’s rare in Michigan?

It took Bob a full year to prepare for this birding show, working every single minute of the day, seven days a week.

Will the Magee Marsh trip be another bust, as chronicl…

He also describes a device for digital cameras that…

Carolyn Jourdan, author of the national bestseller Heart in the Right Place, shares tips with Bob about how her new self-published Kindle book Medicine Men achieved stellar success right off the bat.

Thanks to Linda’s brainstorm, Bob and Linda manage to snag a pet sitter and get out of town and away from the critters for a full three days. But some vacations are better than others.
