Love means loving, or at least watching, something you wouldn’t normally love because your beloved loves it. That’s how I found myself watching Titanoboa: Monster Snake with my sons today.
Another reason I found myself watching this slithering slimy hope-I-don’t-have-nightmares snake was because I’ve been inspired by 197 Educational YouTube Channels You Should Know About which landed me at the Smithsonian Channel. Clearly there are many snake fans (and those who love them) out there because this is the most popular full episode with over 2.5 million views.
All of my sons thought it was great. They enjoyed the history, computer animations, and how graduate students were involved in the discovery because their brother-in-law, Michael, is a graduate student. A physics graduate student which turned into its own discussion although I’m pretty sure my eight year old, John Paul, is now waiting for Michael to discover a dinosaur.
Back to the show, John Paul asked, “Who do you think would win in a fight between a T-Rex and Titanoboa?” After much debate he sided with Titanoboa. I sided with the T-Rex just to make the discussion interesting. Perhaps it would be a draw?
Do you watch educational channels on YouTube? If you don’t, do check out the 197 channels. If you do, please share your favorites in the comments. Unless they have to do with snakes.
Have a great week 🙂 ~~~~~~~~ Angie Mc
