Goldfish " data-medium-file="" data-large-file=""/>


This week on Varmints podcast we’re going for a swim with our finny friends the goldfish! So dive on in and join in on the fin! Fun! Oh, we could have punned soooo much more in this episode.

Here’s some stuff we referenced on the show:

In the news: Goldfish with custom-made “wheelchair” gets back in the swim. This article’s title was so good we didn’t feel the need to add anything. Look at that face! Aaaagh! So cute!  


 As promised, here’s a video of the little goldfish in his “wheelchair”, courtesy of his owner, YouTube user Taylor Nicole Dean.

Three second memory? No way, dude. Goldfish have way better memories than that! Check out this article courtesy of Today I Found Out.


 We definitely remember who brings the food. Just sayin’. Bloop!

It’s not a good idea to put goldfish in with wild animals outdoors. They turn from great pet to invasive species in a heartbeat. Here’s a great article about the problem. Check it out!

Goldfish gone wild!
