In this week’s episode, we look at a couple of so-called living fossils: the tuatara and the lamprey. One of them hasn’t changed appreciably in almost 400 million years. Tune in to find out which one and learn about how gross it is and how cute the other one is! (I may be biased.)
The adorable tuatara! It eats anything, including baby tuataras. Not cool, lizardy guy.
A face not even a mother could love. The sea lamprey.
