Talking with Jeff Corwin of Animal Planet Fame

Greetings from Nashville! Right now I'm sitting in the gigantic indoor garden (complete with waterfall) of the Gaylord Opryland Hotel trying to get my husband to talk with me on Skype (he's not online . . . Andrew? Where are you?)

But before I left Anchorage I had the pleasure of speaking with Jeff Corwin. Not only has he plenty of degrees in everything from biology to anthropology he has written some books, been in heaps upon mounds of television productions and was even (get ready for trivia) named one of People Magazine's 50 Most Beautiful People a few years back. Oh, and he's been attacked by an elephant.



Anyway, we chatted about a variety of subjects from education to how he and his family unwind on vacation and I thought I'd share the video clip with you.

Mr. Corwin is working on the Lunchables Lunch Roar and Score Sweepstakes where 10 children will win a fabulous animal tour and trip to Boston, MA with the famous host himself. The website has more details but it sounds like lots of fun--my little future marine biologist wants to enter. In fact, David had one big question he wanted me to ask my guest: "Are poison dart frogs born poisonous?"

For the answer you'll have to watch the video, the answer surprised me a bit.
