Welcome to New Dimensions Radio!
The diversity of life exists everywhere. It even surrounds our homes. Just look out your window and you’ll see an abundance of nature. You’ll see birds, flowers, spiderwebs, squirrels, moths flying around porch lights, lizards with their tails cut off by local cats, and much more. Here Montgomery takes us on a world tour from California, to Zaire, to Australia, to Canada, and even New Zealand. Hear the fascinating encounters with gorillas, snakes, and spiders.
