69. Bonobos and Ducks
I hope you all see the irony that for episode 69 we are talking about two of the weirdest and most promiscuous animals in the animal world: Bonobos and Ducks!With Spring Break upon us, why would anyone want to work, unless of course its for sex. That's right; we're talking about animal sex. So keep your kids at home as we adults dive on in to the group sex world of bonobos and the beautiful and at time terrifying love life of ducks As great apes, bonobos are probably the best at sex. If you will think of this troop of primates as a chill hippie commune. In order to solve problem and keep aggression from escalating their answer is sex. As for ducks there are many ways males try to attract the females so to win their favor. It comes down to three thing: a dance, a song and fancy feathers.  With every duck species with a different head and/or tail dance so to show off their beautiful plumage, as well as some calls; the female decides which one is the most beautiful. But what about the ones who don't get picked? Well let's just say they turn to the dark side and it has to do with their long and twirly penis. Those poor female ducks...well not really as their vaginal tract is just as weird, long and twirly. ALSO bird calls!!Scientific namesBonobo: Pan paniscusMallard Duck: Anas platyrhynchosCommon Goldeneye: Bucephala clangulaBlack-bellied whistling duck: Dendrocygna autumnalisFollow the Podcast on Social Media!Instagram @wafpodcasttiktok @wafpodcastEmail: wafpodcastexplicit@gmail.comFacebook: "Weird Animal Facts: Explicit" Support the show

63. Whales
"Whale-come" to the glorious porpoise of World Whale Day! On February 20, 2022 we celebrate all whales! And yes, technically dolphins are whales. But World Whale Day was started to help protect and raise awareness for humpback whales; but since then all whales have been included! And incase you'd like like know the whole classification of whales then listen in as I poorly attempt to read a few orders, infraorder and suborders...it does not go well.Baleen whales VS Toothed whales. Is there a difference? Yes. Their teeth. One has baleen and the other have teeth...but that should be obvious. We focus more on the baleen whales and their huge role they play in saving the planet and phytoplankton. Are you breathing right now? You should thank a whale.

60. Death Adder and Hawk Moth

60. Death Adder and Hawk Moth
Time to go down under! Australia! Thanks to a fan request we are taking this episode's journey to the Australia outback! Death Adder and Hawk Moth.One of Australia's most deadly snake, thanks to their neurotoxic venom. But don't worry as long as you respect this snake, and give it the space it deserves, and not touch it; you'll be fine. Mostly found in coastal regions of Australia this passive hunter isn't chasing you nor its prey down.  Looking similar to the United States viper, this native Australian is NOT  a viper. Nor an adder (you know like the puff adder of Africa). Nope. They're in their own family...they just look like those other snakes. And just because the Death Adder is a venomous snake it doesn't mean they don't positively affect us humans. Because they do. Scientist have been able to use their venom to create medicine!What's a butterfly and what's a moth? What's the difference? You'll have to listen and find out. But what I can tell you now is HAWK MOTH! Its not a hawk. Its a moth. A big moth! As big as your cell phone. And unlike what you think, moths aren't boring, nor are all drab colored. Some, especially certain species of hawk moths, can be very colorful. Not only are moths much prettier then you may think but they are FANTASTIC pollinators. Do you like papaya? Thank a moth!Scientific namesCommon Death Adder: Acanthophis antarcticusDesert Death Adder: Acanthophis pyrrhusSmooth-scaled Death Adder: Acanthophis laevisPellucid Hawk Moth: Cephonodes hylasVine Snake Hawk Moth: Hippotion celerioDouble Headed Hawk Moth: Coequosa triangularisInstagram @wafpodcasttiktok @wafpodcastEmail: wafpodcastexplicit@gmail.comFacebook: "Weird Animal Facts: Explicit"  Support the show

Yep, just like that useless giant panda, the cuter, better, red panda also has a pseudo thumb. But unlike those overrated giant pandas the red panda isn't just restricted to only eat bamboo.
