Musi has covered diverse assignments - from traveling Route 66 to global warming, life under volcanoes, and Sicilian mummies.

Musi gets up close—almost too close - to his unique subjects, despite the fact that they growl, bark, roar, bite, hiss, claw, poop, and pee on him. With his trademark witty sense of humor, Musi taps into his inner Dr. Dolittle as he shares stories from his encounters with some extraordinary animals, including a bonobo with a 300-word vocabulary and a crow that makes and uses tools.
