Biologist Evon Hekkala of FordhamUniversity has searched for man-eating crocodiles in Madagascar, plumbed museum collections for DNA locked in ancient animal mummies, and discovered “extinct” creatures surviving right under our noses. Her goal? Finding rare, hidden, and endangered species and saving them from oblivion.
At the April edition of the Secret Science Club, Dr. Hekkala discusses:
genetic sleuthing and unraveling the evolutionary origins of rare species
–the sacred crocodile, named for the ancient Egyptian practice of venerating, bejeweling, and mummifying crocs
–DNA and wildlife conservation
–the Nile crocodile, one of the most lethal predators on the planet
Before & After
–Groove to untamable tunes
Sink your teeth into the Q&A
–Sample the Crocodile Tears, our cold-blooded cocktail of the night. It’ll grab you…
