to you by delmonte. Everything is a surprise. Casey, good morning. How are you, sam? Casey, is that a baby bear before I even get to the introduction? Well, yeah, amazing how big it is. It's actually 8 months old. A baby black bear. Look how big it's grown in eight months, born the size of a twinkie. Incredible. We talked about the panda, the baby panda which will do some of the same giant growth. Casey anderson, wildlife expert of "america the wild." I thought they would be cuddly baby animals. I'm not sure I'll cuddle the bear. This looks like a good size. Tell me about them and where they generally live. Black bears live in almost every state. It's funny. Black bear -- not black. Come from completely black to completely white and everything in between. This is what they call a cinnamon color phase. It's absolutely gorgeous. When you -- can I -- are you okay with it? I don't have anything in my hands. And the claws -- claws are designed for climbing and powerful. Yes, super powerful. This guy is super strong. What's next? This is -- I love these animals. People actually think these are little rats. But this is an opossum. North america -- I've never ever seen one. Pretty wiggly. Something coming out of -- i don't want to be -- making a little mess here. Look at his tail. Prehen cyle tail. Only marsupial in north america. Okay. And they'rely when they're born you can fit 13 in a teaspoon. And that thing grows up quickly and it's teeth -- teething all over me right now. Next one. Casey, how do you handle all this? Here, look, very shy. All right. And then very shy little coyote. Gorgeous. From the frenetic opossum to this. Coyotes have a bad rap. All animals that live in our backyard. Put away our pet food and garbage we won't have any conflict with these guys. Pet coyotes are even moving into central park. They can live with people. They can owe exist. It's something that we need to be aware that the wildlife. We're kind of living this their backyard too so when people have these reports of the animals what's something he can do with their pets? You say keep the trash in. Live in an area that's infringing on wildlife. You should take care of your zone. Trying to survive looking for food. It's hard for them. We're living this their backyard taking away a lot of their natural food sources but if we check our manner, put away our food and garbage these guys will do their thing. They're survivors. And hopefully leave us all alone. I know we had 30 seconds left. I didn't want to spend much time with the skunk. With the opossum -- everybody knows what this is. Please tell me that can't and won't -- it won't but if it could this guy could shoot clean across the studio. They can shoot their stink that's not a kitten, ladies and gentlemen, when you see that you don't want to be on that end. Please don't point that thing at me, casey. Thank you so much, sir, lovely to have you. "America the wild" airs on sundays on nat geowild. We thank you so much for hanging out with us.
