(spooky music) We can’t be too loud because our next guest is here, and he’s got some creepy animals for Halloween.
But, if you’re too loud, the animals go wild.
Say hello to our wildlife expert friend, Dave Mizejewski.
Live wildlife species that the National Wildlife Federation is working to protect. These guys, there used to be 30 to 60 million of them in North America, now there’s only about 30,000 because we wiped them out.Really? So, the National Wildlife Federation is working to get them reintroduced to their native habitat.
A scary horror story on the one end, but it has a happy ending as long as everybody supports wildlife conservation, so.
That’s the message of my costume.
‘Cause I really wanna freak you out.
And so, the first one, and you can hold this.
These guys are called Madagascar hissing cockroaches. Actually, no, I’m glad you said that.
These outside because this is a.
Species that’s only found in tropical areas, they’re found in the island country of Madagascar, and Africa. If you see these guys in horror movies and it’s somewhere in like a cold place, just know that.
It’s just TV magic, it’s movie magic. These guys would never survive a winter here. So, not the same kinds of cockroaches–Oh, cockroaches. In fact, most cockroaches would not survive in your house. And, they’re very clingy, come on. All right, so, let’s, our next animal is one of the, again, Halloween animals. It’s a rodent, and it’s a giant rodent. Well, I can find that outside too. Oh! No, I can guarantee you, you’re not gonna be able to find this kind of rodent anywhere. And, I just wanna say, I brought this guy on because it’s beautiful, it’s super cute, right? Look at her eyes. For rodents, right, look at that beautiful eyes, those eyelashes.
It’s just got a little tail. These guys live down in Argentina. They are the second largest rodent species in the world.
Gently pet while she eats there. I know you have gloves on but she’s got super soft fur. So again, rodents are not all scary, and gross, and like city rats. Some of them are actually super cute, right? Looks kinda like a guinea pig. All right, the next animal is not so cute. But, I hope, again, to get you.
To like it a little bit more than you might otherwise. All right, take a look at this guy right here. What do you think this is? I don’t know. What do you think it is?Take a guess. You know how I know, even though it doesn’t have legs? This is actually a legless lizard, okay. And so, the thing that makes it a lizard and not a snake, well a couple different features.
So, some of the differences are, the eyes, so lizards have an eyelid. So, this animal can blink, a snake can’t. That’s why we are so afraid of snakes, by the way. Because that unblinking eye looks very, very–.
All they do is stare at you. So, a lizard can actually blink, they also have external ear holes. And, what’s interesting, a lot of people think that snakes evolved from, or lizards evolved from snakes, like snakes grew, you know, evolved legs. Snakes actually started out as lizards, and evolved to lose the legs. Put her down, let’s see her run.
Down because she’s gonna squirm away, so. But, we’ve got a couple more really awesome animals. So, I’m gonna bring out the next one. Now, this next animal might get a little bit spooked by my costume, so I’m gonna let him kinda do his thing on the table here. But, check out the face on this guys, okay. These guys are like raccoons with these really long faces. You’ve seen the movie Beetlejuice? Yes. Remember when Alec Baldwin pulls his face out really long? I live in the suburbs, we have a lot of raccoons. They don’t look like this though. This is the cousin of the raccoon.
Desert, Southwest, where these guys are found, you might actually have them showing up in your yard. And, they’re very similar, they eat almost anything. You can see he’s eating the mara’s food. He’s got the striped tail, kind of like a raccoon. But, you know, we wanna respect it like all wildlife because, you know, these guys have claws and fangs, and.
You know, these guys, you know, you’d never wanna approach. But, pretty cool, even if it’s kind of, you know, a little bit freaky looking, right. And, this is, I think, one of my favorite kinds of animals ever. When Dave used to come here I was frightened with everything.
Years have gone on, we’re on our tenth season, I love when Dave comes and educates us about the wildlife. I really appreciate you saying that. What is that that I see? All right so, this is a vulture, okay. Now, everybody is freaked out by vultures, right? Not today devil. Because they think they’re devils, right? They’re symbols. Well, guess what, this animal is responsible for keeping us from being knee-deep in dead bodies, right? If there were zombies that were actually real, this is the animal that would save us from that. These guys are found all across North America. They have that beautiful red head.
No feathers, because when you’re sticking your head into the corpse of a dead animal and you have feathers on your head, it’s gonna get pretty nasty.
A bald head, it helps keep them clean. Yeah, yeah, and so these guys– The wingspan is gorgeous.

When octopuses go hunting for prey, they sometimes end up "dining" on members of their own species, and the cephalopods seem to have a taste for their victims' arm tips.
Divers have captured video of this octopus-on-octopus action in the wild for the first time on video.
In a new study, researchers described three cases of cannibalism in the common octopus — Octopus vulgaris — recorded with a camcorder by scuba divers in Ría de Vigo, Spain, located on the northeastern Atlantic coast. In two of the cases, the predators had started to eat the tips of the arms of their prey by the time the divers found them. [See Images of the Cannibalistic Octopus]
And, in one of the cases, the predator had access to more "traditional" prey in the form of mussels, but it still chose to feed on another, smaller octopus.
Although scientists had been aware of cannibalism occurrences among members of O. vulgaris, the previously reported cases were known only from analyses of stomach contents and laboratory observations, the researchers wrote in the study published Sept. 8 in the Journal of Comparative Psychology.
However, "this behavior has never been described from direct observations in the wild by scuba diving," said study author Jorge Hernández-Urcera of the Institute of Marine Research (IIM) in Vigo, Spain.
The researchers documented the first of the three cannibalism cases on Dec. 11, 2012, at a depth of 40 feet (12 meters), on a rocky bottom off the Cíes Islands, which are part of the National Park of the Atlantic Islands of Galicia (NAPAIG). A male octopus weighing about 4.85 pounds (2.2 kilograms) was holding in its grasp a smaller octopus without visible sexual characteristics, which weighed a bit less than a pound (about 400 grams). [See Video of the Cannibalistic Octopus in Action]
"The animal was dead, showing a pale white color and the tips of its arms had been eaten," the researchers wrote.
The second case was recorded July 13, 2013, on a sandy bottom about 60 feet (18 m) below the surface near the Estelas Islands. A male octopus of about the same weight as the in first case carried an octopus weighing a bit more than a pound (540 grams) inside a ball-shaped sack that it had formed with its arms and web – the skin between its arms that it can spread to capture prey.
The diver who recorded the case realized that "the prey was still alive, because it poked and moved one of its arms between the dorsal pair of arms of the predator," the researchers wrote. The diver disturbed the predator, which in turn let go of the prey, letting it escape, and therefore the researchers classified this case as "an attempted predation."
The third recorded case occurred Nov. 26, 2013, at a depth of about 45 feet (14 m), on a rocky bottom off the Cíes Islands, also within NAPAIG. A female octopus of almost 4 pounds (1.8 kg) was holding an octopus weighing less than a pound (about 350 grams), of unknown sex. The prey was already dead when the diver saw it, "with a pale white color and the tips of the arms eaten," the researchers wrote.
Cannibalistic behavior in octopuses may be motivated by various factors, the researchers said.
When octopuses are in captivity, and too many of them are introduced to the same aquarium or an on-growing cage – a type of floating cage in which octopuses are reared, they may resort to cannibalism as a means of defending their territory, Hernández Urcera said.
"The existence of territoriality in octopuses is, however, controversial," he said, adding that studies have shown varying results on this phenomenon.
Territoriality, the lack of available prey and the vulnerability of smaller males to being eaten by larger females are some of the potential reasons for cannibalistic behavior among octopuses in the wild, Hernández Urcera told Live Science.
However, the researchers think the most probable cause of cannibalism in the cases observed is the high net energy gained from preying on other octopuses.
For example, when an octopus feeds on a smaller member of its species, it receives the same amount of energy it would get by feeding on a large number of mussels — its common prey, Hernández Urcera said. But the cost of capturing another octopus is lower than the energy cost of snagging all of those mussels. In addition, an octopus may choose to feed on another member of its species instead of mussels because itcan get more protein per gram from octopus meat than from mussels. Moreover, handling another octopus requires less energy than opening the number of mussels whose weight would be equivalent to the weight of meat provided by a single octopus.
The research was conducted under the leadership of Angel Guerra of the Institute of Marine Research in Vigo, as part of the Cefaparques Project funded by Spanish National Research Council.
With their flightless bodies and highly aquatic lifestyles, penguins don't seem like birds at all. But the well-dressed animals share many common features with other birds, particularly when it comes to mating.
There are about 18 species of penguins, and though their mating behaviors are "fundamentally similar," each species has its own quirks, said penguin researcher Emma Marks of the University of Auckland in New Zealand.
Breeding usually takes place during the Antarctic summer (October through February), though some species do mate in the winter. Males arrive at the colony first and choose their spot to wait for prospective mates. For nest-building penguins, such as Adélie penguins, males will go back to their previous nest and make it as presentable as possible, by building it up with stones, sticks and other objects they find.
When the females arrive, sometimes a few weeks later, they go right back to their mates from the previous year. A female will check out the quality of her old flame's nest by inspecting it, getting in it and lying down. She will do the same for neighboring nests, though this can sometimes lead to trouble. [In Photos: The Sex Habits of Penguins]
"If the male's previous partner arrives, she will kick the new female out of the nest," Marks told LiveScience. "It's a little bit like watching a soap opera."
For species that don't build nests (and even some that do), song quality is very important. Research suggests that females can tell how fat a male is — and thus how long he will be able to babysit the eggs without needing to run off in search of food — based on his song.
Once a female chooses her mate, the pair will go through an important courtship ritual, in which the penguins bow, preen and call to each other. The ritual helps the birds get to know one another, and learn their respective calls so that they can always find each other.
Courtship complete, the pair then mates. The female will lie down on the ground and the male will climb on her back and walk backward until he gets to her tail. The female will then lift her tail, allowing the penguins' cloaca (reproductive and waste orifice) to align and sperm to be transferred.
After the female lays one or two eggs, the male will take the first incubation shift. In species that don't build nests, the adults incubate by balancing the eggs on their feet. Incubation duties are shared between the parents in all species except one. In Emperor penguins, the male takes care of his egg for two months straight, relying on the warmth of his fellow penguin papas to survive the cold as his fat reserves dwindle.
Tree-climbing goats in Morocco give their roosts where they feed a boost … by spitting the trees' seeds on the ground.
Yes, Morocco has tree-climbing goats. Herders in the arid southern part of the country even encourage their domesticated goats to climb by pruning the thorny argan trees the animals love. Especially in autumn, when other vegetation is scarce, the fruit of the argan tree is an important source of calories for the goats.
The goats may be important for the trees as well. Researchers have now found that climbing goats consume the olive-like fruit of the argan tree and later spit out the nuts, they reported May 2 in the journal Frontiers in Ecology and the Environment. Other cud-chewing ruminant animals might do the same, the researchers wrote, meaning that regurgitation could be just as important as defecation for spreading some seeds. [Cats and Lizards and Monkeys, Oh My! 9 Islands Ruled by Animals]
Study authors Miguel Delibes, Irene Castañeda and José M. Fedriani of the Doñana Biological Station in Seville, Spain, had previously seen goats in dry areas of Mexico and Spain climbing on short bushes and trees to graze. The goats in Morocco, though, tower above the competition — 10 to 20 at a time were regularly seen climbing argan trees between 26 and 33 feet tall (8 and 10 meters). [Video: Fainting Goats]
Plenty of argan seeds could be observed amid the spit-out cud and feces after the goats moved through, but it was impossible to tell whether the goats were regurgitating or defecating the seeds. Argan seeds are large, up to 0.8 inches (22 millimeters) in width, so it seemed unlikely they were moving through the entire digestive tract, the researchers wrote.
To show that regurgitation was the likely culprit, the researchers fed goats five different fruits with different size seeds. Almost any seed of any size could be spit out during rumination, or cud chewing, they found, but larger seeds were more frequently expectorated than smaller ones. Further testing found that 71 percent of ruminated, spat-out seeds were still viable.
The authors also reported seeing red deer and fallow deer as well as sheep spitting seeds while ruminating, suggesting that this behavior might be important for seed dispersal. Ruminants can keep their cud tucked away in their rumen, or first stomach, for days at a time, the researchers wrote, so a goat being herded long distances or making a seasonal migration could transport seeds for hundreds of miles.

If you suffer from ophidiophobia — an irrational fear of snakes — you may want to think twice before watching the above video.
And if you assume that the albino Burmese python opened a closed door purely by accident, know this: Snakes and other reptiles are surprisingly clever.
A 2011 study published in the Journal of the Royal Society: Biology Letters found that lizards are smart enough to solve puzzles to help them find food, and could quickly adapt to changes in those puzzles, meaning they're as smart as some other vertebrates.
These findings upended previous assumptions about how higher intelligence is limited to social species with varied daily diets. Most reptiles are solitary creatures, and many will eat only occasionally, not every day.
Perhaps it's time to deadbolt your doors — and hide the key in a snake-proof container.
