National Wildlife week is a time to celebrate the beauty and diversity of America’s wildlife. Even species you think you know have strange secrets to reveal. Joining us to talk about these secrets and more is head naturalist and spokesperson for the National Wildlife Federation, David Mizejewski. Ever heard of an animal called a hellbender? Well they are here in Mississippi and that is just one of the nuggets of knowledge David shared through out the show. Also, Dr. Majure talked about the dreadful “kitten season” and why spaying cats is important. Libby even talked about some of the recent snake sightings everyone is sharing with her. Spring is here and the creatures are out.
