Backyard Birds

Animal Myths with Monica



Monica Macoubrie with the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission returns to The Backyard Naturalists podcast to share a few incredibly interesting (and a few fascinating) animal myths with us. Can owls really spin their head, all the way around? Will a porcupine shoot quills at you from thirty paces? Will you really swallow twenty spiders during your lifetime while you sleep?
