Tetrapod Zoology

Tetrapod Zoology is part podcast, part blog. The platform is "devoted to discussion, research, discovery, and speculation," about all things tetrapod ("amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals, and all of their extinct relatives."). Zoologist Darren Naish and Paleontological Artist John Conway co-host the podcast, which has more than 70 episodes as of this write-up. Listeners may be drawn to the podcast for the witty titles (see "Fat-bottomed Rodents" and "Stupid Successful Frog" for reference), but the humorous commentary and informative discussions on fossils, species, and DNA will keep your attention. The blog has a similar flavor, highlighting discoveries such as glowing birds and lots (and lots) of lizards. Originally launched on Scientific American in 2011, the blog is now housed on TetZoo's own platform and continues to post content relevant to the Tetrapod community. The site also has information about TetZooCon, an annual conference inspired by the work of the blog.
