(FT “President” Tykee James)
Wildlife can be big, and wildlife can be small. In either case it can be right under our noses without our knowing it. In Episode 2, we turn to some of the smaller critters we don’t know are living all around us.
Tony and Billy teamed up with guest host Tykee James, of Wild West Philly, who tells us how to tell a dogwood from the other trees of the forest.
We joined Billy on an urban forest expedition to see Philadelphia’s other Rocky, the common but secretive southern flying squirrel.
Last we get to the Kirtland’s snake, nearly-endangered, but oddly common in Midwestern Cities. It hasn’t been seen in 50 years in Pennsylvania. Will 2015 be the year that citizen scientists find it in Pittsburgh? We talk with Brandon Ruhe of the Pennsylvania Amphibian and Reptile Survey, and Ohio herper extraordinaire Peter Kleinhenz.
