Ranking The Kingdom
About This Show
Are you ready to critique mother nature with the same passion you feel for movies, music, books, television, and video games? Haven't animals had it a little too easy for a little too long?
Ranking the Kingdom is an attempt to review animals and finally decide once and for all who deserves to be on top. And while the host will give a score at the end of each episode, it's up to all of us to truly decide what the most badass, high-class, top brass, karate-kickin', take-no-names', no-nonsense, no-prisoners, nonstick, easy-glide animal out there is!
Are you ready to decide?

Fifteen reviews in and nature's Little Armored One is finally stepping into the limelight! That's right, this week we're reviewing the small and anything-but-defenseless Armadillo! We all know that Armadillos are resilient, but do they have what it takes to be a top contender on Ranking The Kingdom? We'll learn all about how much pressure their shells can take (Spoilers: It's a lot), what exactly makes their intestines so special, and why something as simple as a storm could spell disaster for entire populations of this highly defensive animal. You'll also discover what life-threatening disease almost a quarter of these guys carry, and which species are capable of rolling into a ball to escape their predators. It's a tiny tank this time around on Ranking the Kingdom. Do they have it in them to succeed? Do we have a new top contender to the animal throne? Listen in and find out! Note: The word Xenarthra is spelled with an "X", not a "Z" like I accidentally say in the episode. I got a little ahead of myself there...
