Hello and welcome to 54th episode of Everything Under the Sun, a weekly podcast answering all the most pressing questions children around the world have about life on earth. My name is Molly and today I have three questions! They’re about armadillos, music and mermaids!

Our first question comes from Wolf, who lives in Paraguay! He sent me a photo of an armadillo he saw on holiday in Uruguay and asked me a question about these curious creatures! It is...

Why do armadillos have little heads and big bottoms?

Find out all about the different armadillos from Pink Fairy armadillos to screaming ones and giant ones!

Our next question is about music and it comes from from Rose, she would like to know, who invented music!

To answer Rose's lovely question I have Jack Savoretti who is a wonderful musician – his new album Singing to Strangers has songs he wrote along with with Bob Dylan and Kylie Minogue! He's got an answer he came up with alongside his musical director about where they think music came from.

Our third question is from Alice, it’s about mermaids...her question is how do mermaids wee?

I have a good guess, based on how fish wee and we discover how fish pee makes things in the ocean grow.

I wonder what creatures would be able to make use of mermaid pee?

So that’s our three questions! Wishing you all a very lovely week!

A huge thank you to the wonderful Jack Savoretti and Shannon Harris for talking to us about music and of course a big thank you to Rose, Wolf and Alice for this week’s questions!

I’ll be back next week answering more questions from children around the world in another episode of EUTS!
