How to take a hyacinth macaw’s heartbeat

Listening to a hyacinth macaw‘s heartbeat has never been easier: Margaret, who lives at the National Aquarium in Baltimore, Maryland, has been trained to voluntarily let a veterinarian team give her an annual physical exam. 

In the archives: a snowy owl gets feathers replaced, a puggle drinks milk, a baby rhino recovers, a baby donkey hops about, Baby Gladys gets cuddled, and Koala Hospitals exist.

This Webby award-winning video collection exists to help teachers, librarians, and families spark kid wonder and curiosity. TKSST features smarter, more meaningful content than what's usually served up by YouTube's algorithms, and amplifies the creators who make that content.
