Publisher's Summary

What do a whale’s eardrum, a beaver’s anal gland and the feather of a lesbian albatross have in common?

They’re not the ingredients for the beginnings of a bad joke, but some of the objects brought in for 'show and tell' in Nature Table with Sue Perkins.

Listen as a Marine Biologist, an Ethnobotanist, an ant expert (yes, really), a wildlife cameraman and other experts bring Sue their strange and fascinating objects - and the stories that go with them - to discuss with a 'class' at London Zoo, made up of guests like comedians Sally Phillips and Lucy Porter, as well as London Zoo staff and members of the public.

Why are sea otters 'demons'? Which animal can delay its own pregnancy until it’s ready? Which animal is probably living on the faces of most human adults? Nature Table might teach you something about the amazing world of plants and animals while hopefully making you laugh along the way.

Lovely comedy with snippets of naturr facts

Very funny chats between Sue Perkins and her various hosts, learnt interesting facts about the animal and fauna kingdom in a lovely laidback fashion. I will never look at fig the same way again!!

My only complaint is that there isn't more

I loved the earpedia shows with Sue Perkins and I find myself hoping to listen to more weird nature with her

perfect for some info and a giggle

I honestly listen to these on repeat. highly recommend if you want a laugh and also to learn some interesting stuff around animals! I listen to these on repeat while I fall asleep. engaging enough not to be boring but also you can dip in and out with out much difficulty. highly recommend.
