She's a Fulbright scholar and former Miami Dolphins cheerleader, you have to remember that.

She had gone in search of the world's smallest primate:
Mayor debuted on EXPLORER in ?Lemur Rescue,? a program that featured her genetic research on the highly endangered lemurs of Madagascar. Marie Claire profiled Mayor and her work in Madagascar in their October 2002 issue. In upcoming films for Ultimate Explorer, Mayor will be tracking the elusive western lowland gorilla in the Central African Republic and searching for a previously undiscovered species of primate in the jungles of Madagascar.And, of course she had the world's smallest primate make her TV debut. And then there were the 400 LB gorillas. And she even got to see for herself where they sleep. mmmhmmmm. And tonight, it is leopards:
