"Dr. Bugs" Moffett Has Drugged-Out Toads, Sex-Champ Ants - CONAN on TBS.
How ants are like humans, for the website Big Think.
Go behind the scenes and hear National Geographic research grantee Mark Moffett talk about his career, what inspires and influences his work, and his most memorable adventures.
Mark recounts his unexpectedly hilarious expedition to a remote valley in Colombia to document an elusive and deadly "superfrog" for the World Science Festival.
Mark shows a giant toad and some humongous beetle larvae to Conan O'Brien.
Mark has spoken for Google at both their headquarters in Mountain View and in Manhattan; here’s his discussion of the book, Adventures Among Ants.
A video of a botfly emerging from Mark's hand, has been popular on youtube and was used for a time at Yale medical school. Think of it as the closest experience a man can have to giving birth. Prepare to be awed (or terrified).
