I recently made my debut appearance on Chelsea Lately on E!, so this week's Animal Oddity is about fun television segments. As a Naturalist with the National Wildlife Federation and Animal Planet blogger, part of my job is to bring "animal ambassadors" on TV to let people know about all of the cool critters that share this planet with us. Last night I brought a baby wallaby, a cane toad, a juvenile cassowary, a screaming hairy armadillo and a 400 lbs Russian wild boar.
Here's the clip. I don't have much to add to it other than the fact that this was by far the hardest segment for me to do without totally laughing hysterically. Watch to hear what Ross thinks of the screaming hairy armadillo and be prepared to pee your pants. He really does deserve his own show.
