This week on The Naturalist Bernie spoke about fireflies, one of the more bizarre yet lovable creatures of the night sky (did you know they have toxic flesh?). Bernie also talks about Giant Water Beetles or “toe biters” who eat the liquefied remains of their prey, and are also themselves eaten by humans in some countries. It’s always an interesting and wacky time on The Naturalist! This episode was sponsored by Acme smoked fish: a mainstay in New York’s culinary landscape for over 55 years.
