Charlie meets legendary shark scientist Eugenie Clark, who just turned 88 years old. Dr. Clark admitted to WhySharksMatter that “Can you please hold this stuffed Charles Darwin so that I can take a picture to put on the internet” was, in fact, the strangest question she ever received in her long and storied career.
Charlie knows that no Myrtle Beach vacation is complete without a trip to Dolly Parton’s Dixie Stampede. Since they were there representing Southern Fried Science, Charlie and WhySharksMatter cheered for the South.
At Alligator Adventure, Charlie visits the albino alligator exhibit. He and WhySharksMatter were pleasantly surprised by the volunteer’s accurate description of mutations and deleterious alleles.
