Hurst: Hi there Carol, let’s dive right in. I think you will bee interested to hear about my favorite story of the week. A giant bee that was thought to be extinct was rediscovered on the Indonesian island of Bacan. With a wingspan of two inches and a half it is the largest bee in the world!
Carol: I can see what all the buzz is about, that’s amazing! We’ve got two articles about tortoises this week, and some progress made regarding mitigating climate change.
Hurst: I’m sure you already follow Fanimal on all social media platforms but this is your official reminder that after this week all Creature Feature posts will be posted on Fanimal accounts instead!
Carol: I’m already on it, but I appreciate the reminder. See you next week!
