Don’t Cuddle

the Scorpion 


with host Jon Rossi

and guest

Zookeeper Mel

Today the Safari virtually visits Utah’s Hogle Zoo to talk to zookeeper and TikTok sensation Zookeeper Mel!

We talk about her pulling double duty in two areas right now, and hear a lot about some of the cool animals she takes care of, including Pallas’ cats, Amur leopards, Amur tigers, scorpions…and, of course, we have some good red panda content for y’all!  We also talk about the illegal wildlife pet trade, and you’re probably going to be as shocked as I was at some of the numbers Mel shares.  Super fun at times, super deep at times, this is an excellent episode!
