Creature Comforts | Pet Day - May 2021
The guineafowl may not be as popular as chickens but are very well known for their yard tick control. But can you endure their call? This is just an example of the type of advice you hear on an all-pet edition of creature comforts. Along with tips for keeping pets calm during severe weather and learning about what Libby is seeing outside her window this May Pet Day is a great time to hear what is happening with your four-legged friends.
Creature Comforts | Snakes Galore
Terry Vandeventer is a Creature Comfort's favorite and always shares that snakes are more afraid of us than we are of them. As hard as a fact like that may be to believe, Terry talks about the proper way to interact with these creatures and dispel myths about them. So put away your mothballs and listen to Terry talk about the over 40 species of snakes that call Mississippi home. Also, Libby Hartfield shares about the 51st annual Earth Day and Dr. Majure answers another round of pet questions.
Creature Comforts | Caterpillar Time
Former Director of the Mississippi Entomological Museum at Mississippi State, Dr. Richard Brown joins this episode of Creature Comforts to talk all things caterpillar. Last year, before he retired from the museum, he was on the show talking about moths. Which is what all caterpillars become, if they do not become butterflies. Between pet questions for Dr. Majure and Libby commenting on her latest nature sightings, Dr. Brown shares about the various caterpillars seen around Mississippi.Show Links:Moth Photographers Group at Mississippi State
