Marty’s photo of the day #3129: I was standing on Antarctica when I took this photo, looking out at our tiny ship, the Professor Multanovskiy. Huge snowflakes filled the air—what a magical day!
Marty’s photo of the day #3127: In this photo, Deb is at the top (elevation 4,300 feet) of the Salmon Glacier in Alaska. It’s the fifth largest glacier in North America. The following excerpt from my first book, Cool Creatures, Hot Planet: Exploring the Seven Continents, describes our adventure: Unlike other mountain roads I’ve driven, […]

These large toads are native to South America and have been introduced to places like Puerto Rico and Australia, where they have created havoc. It’s not the toads’ fault, of course, it’s the […]
