In today's video, I am pleased to present The Talk Nerdy Guide To Animal Sex!

I recently had the wonderful opportunity to visit the Los Angeles Zoo with animal "sexpert" Dr. Carin Bondar, the "biologist with a twist." She taught me about the curious sex lives of komodo dragons, koalas, wallabies, and tapirs (who, I might add, have some very impressive anatomy). I also get the sneaking suspicion that Carin might be trying to muscle me out of my role as the host of "Talk Nerdy To Me!" What do you think? Watch the video above and sound off by leaving a comment below.

Come on, talk nerdy to me!
