The World’s A Jungle For Singing Zoologist

AUSTIN, Texas (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Any songwriter can write about love but only Lucas Miller is writing about metamorphosis and symbiosis.

Miller is a singing zoologist based in Austin, Texas, who writes tunes about the animal kingdom instead of everyday human topics.

The tunesmith has written three full albums of “zongs” including his latest, I Was A Supa-Dupa Pupa.

That’s amazing, considering how hard it is to write ditties detailing the relationship between a clownfish and a sea anemone.

Miller admits he sometimes has to run his lyrics by animal experts in order to make sure they’re scientifically accurate.

Still, other times, the songs spill out, especially when he’s writing about snakes because, as he puts it, “Lots of words rhyme with anaconda.”

So far, Miller’s biggest fans are kids and he says a few have told him they aced their tests because of his tunes. But sadly, even though he’s singing about animals, they haven’t responded to his music.

As he puts it, “I did a concert recently near some foxes and they were nonplussed.”
