Episode 9 (07-11-2017) Pink-eyed White Rats – The Spider-Gwens of the Rat World. What Would They Think of Spider-Man: Homecoming?

Liz and Matt talk about pink eyed whites (PEWs), our new fosters, and Spider-man Homecoming.

Ratty Topics – What’s the deal with those albino rats? Pink-eyed whites have a few special characteristics besides their coloring. Have you ever seen your rats scoot up sideways to each other, crouching down low? That’s a submissive pose. We talk about why Pinky did that to Fieval.

Local Animal News – A young bald eagle was found injured in the DC area and taken to a rescue rehabilitation center. Was it one of the DC eagle babies from last year? Also, the DC Eagle Cam is raising money for new cameras. Please help them out!

Nerdy Topics – Joan Lee, wife of Marvel Comics Creator Stan Lee, passed away. They had been married for almost 70 years! What a love story. Speaking of love, we loved Spider-Man: Homecoming and we’ll tell you why. We were less enamored with this season’s Supergirl finale. But we re-watched Aliens which was a lot of fun.

Very nice article about Joan Lee (wife of Stan Lee) who passed away
