  • Mice don't need the cortex to sing their songs

    Animals News -- ScienceDaily
    6 Mar 2015 | 4:37 am
    The human language is unique in that we can refer to objects, events and ideas. The combination of syllables and words enables humans to generate an infinite number of expressions. An important prerequisite for language is the ability to imitate sounds, i.e. to store acquired acoustic information and to use this for one's own vocal production. Cortical structures in the brain play a crucial role in this. While songbirds and certain marine mammals are capable of such vocal learning, there is very little evidence for vocal learning in terrestrial mammals -- not even in our closest living…

  • Moves to automate identification of Saimaa ringed seals

    Endangered Animals News -- ScienceDaily
    6 Mar 2015 | 4:37 am
    Moves are being made to automate the identification of Saimaa ringed seals. This would bring new kinds of real-time information on how the extremely endangered species behaves, the movements of individual seals, and what happens to them. The final aim of an ongoing study on machine vision is to get a biometric passport for each individual Saimaa ringed seal. This happens on the basis of the unique fur patterns of each individual seal, using computer-based smart calculation and digital image processing. The aim is to store the information in a so-called Saimaa ringed seal database.

  • Menopausal whales are influential and informative leaders

    5 Mar 2015 | 9:53 am
    Menopause is a downright bizarre trait among animals. It's also rare. Outside of the human species, only the female members of two whale species outlive their reproductive lives in such a major way. Female killer whales typically become mothers between the ages of 12 and 40, but they can live for more than 90 years. Males rarely make it past 50. Now, researchers have new evidence to explain why.

Hereditary effects included increased body weight, but only in descendants of females -- and not males -- exposed to PCBs in the womb.

    Asian Elephants  "A Pyrrhic victory is a victory that inflicts such a devastating toll on the victor that it is tantamount to defeat." – Wikipedia. ___ When I was nine years old, the Ringling Bros. circus train came to Providence, they parked by the railway station, and the circus and its animals paraded through the city, a beautiful and amazing sight. The big and calm and handsome elephants led the parade, swinging their great trunks back and forth, swishing their tails. There was a dignity and magic about them that mesmerized me and I will never forget it. Watching the parade, I…

When the donkeys come and drink from the heated water bucket, the moisture frosts and freezes when they lift their heads up, eventually, their own breath and the sun melts the frost. Donkeys are mountain and desert animals, they can handle the cold well, but their noses always tell us how cold it is outside.

    Mysticism Barn cats are solitary creatures, they are rarely head-to-head, this morning Minnie and Flo came to the same place and put their heads together. It seemed to me that they were communicating in the way that animals do sometimes – they come close and share images with one another. Perhaps Flo and Minnie were thinking of the barns, of the hay bales, of the mice, and of the cold. Perhaps they were sensing Spring, and getting back outside and hunting in the meadow, and sleeping in the hay bales, and sunning themselves in the garden.

  • Green lungs of our planet are changing

    6 Mar 2015 | 4:37 am
    Are leaves and buds developing earlier in the spring? And do leaves stay on the trees longer in autumn? Do steppe ecosystems remain green longer and are the savannas becoming drier and drier? In fact, over recent decades, the growing seasons have changed everywhere around the world, according to research based on satellite data. The results are expected to have consequences for agriculture, interactions between species, the functioning of ecosystems, and the exchange of carbon dioxide and energy between the land surface and the atmosphere.

  • Amazon deforestation 'threshold' causes species loss to accelerate

    4 Mar 2015 | 7:42 am
    One of the first studies to map the impact of deforestation on biodiversity across entire regions of the Amazon has found a clear 'threshold' for forest cover below which species loss becomes more rapid and widespread. By measuring the loss of a core tranche of dominant species of large and medium-sized mammals and birds, and using the results as a bellwether, the researchers found that for every 10% of forest loss, one to two major species are wiped out. This is until the threshold of 43% of forest cover is reached, beyond which the rate of biodiversity loss jumps from between two to up to…

    Bishkek’s halls of power have been shaken by allegations that donkey cuts have been sold to restaurants in place of beef and lamb. EurasiaNet.org reportsIn Kyrgyzstan, a country that reveres – and eats – horses, the humble donkey is seen as a poor substitute. For this reason, allegations that a farm outside Bishkek is doing a spritely trade flogging donkey meat to restaurants in Kyrgyzstan’s capital have caused much consternation.

    Eight-year-old Gabi Mann of Seattle started feeding crows when she was just four. It wasn't intentional. She just has a habit of accidentally dropping food wherever she went and the crows started to notice and keep an eye on her for the fallout. This caused her to notice the birds in return. Before long she was sharing the lunch Mom had packed for her while she was on the way to the bus, and her brother began to do the same. #pets #animals

  • The Caribbean And The Essential Need For Fish Pee

    Laurie Kay Olson
    26 Feb 2015 | 6:10 am
    It is a substance many children have speculated upon before dipping a toe into a lake or ocean. The fact is that fish do pee. Not only do they pee, but researchers have recently discovered that this liquid is precious and the ecosystems of coastal waterways and coral reefs rely upon it to remain strong and healthy. Not only that, it requires a variety of different fish species. #pets #animals

The puppy was in a litter of five belonging to Swansea hairdresser Claire Walsh and earned his moniker when people commented on the resemblance. Walsh told the Telegraph,”I put photos of them on Facebook, and some of my colleagues and other people started commenting about him. Everyone says he resembles an infamous World War Two leader. He looks like he’s got a side parting, and there is a little mark on his nose which has gone black.” Admitting the…

Keep scrolling and start smiling… The dog who is striving to remember: Let me give you a list of just some of the things I must remember to be a good dog. 1. I will not eat the cats’ food before they eat it or after they throw it up. 2. I will not roll on dead seagulls, fish, crabs, etc. just because I like the way they smell. 3. The litter box is not a cookie jar. 4. The sofa is not a ”face towel.” 5.

  • Rough-legged Hawk

    3 Mar 2015 | 12:15 pm
    The Rough-legged Hawk, a gorgeous raptor which breeds in the Artic, comes south in the winter through Canada to stay in much of the U.S. in order to find food. We see them here in rural Central PA towards the middle of winter, in good numbers. They are also found in Asia, Europe and Greenland unlike our other buteos. Their feet are covered with feathers, hence the name “Rough-legged.” Rough-leggeds have two color morphs, light and dark, and are strikingly patterned. There are also differences according to age and sex. The bird pictured above and below is an adult male light…

    The sun finally came out this morning in rural Central Pa, so I braved the crazy 4 degrees with ear muffs, hand warmers, gloves, heavy coat and boots, and went birding! For four hours!! With the bright snow and the intense sunlight, I was less than happy with the umpteen pictures I took, but it was still fun. I put the seat warmer on, put the window down so I could hear the Horned Larks flying over the fields, and drove the back roads. This is winter road birding at its finest. When there’s something good, the blinkers go on, and the car is parked as far off the road as possible. We…
  • Northern Harrier–The Gray Ghost

    17 Jan 2015 | 7:00 am
    Gray Ghost, male Northern Harrier, Marsh Hawk; all names of this unique hawk which hunts low over open ground or marsh. Long and slender, with wings often held in a dihedral or V-shape, its flat head makes it look something like an owl when it flies. Another owl-like feature is a facial disk which aids the hawk in hearing rodents below in the grasses. This is seen more easily in the female whose plumage is very different from the male, with its dark brown back and heavily streaked under-wings. Both share the white rump patch, however. Photo of the female is below, where you can just make out…

There are no guarantees that they will show up in big numbers, or that they will be active for more than a few minutes every hour or two, but when conditions are right, the sound of thousands of camera shutters going off continuously can really raise one’s adrenaline! From early November to the end of December is the best time to go. When power is needed, the hydroelectric plant…
  • Eurasian Wigeons and American Wigeons: Contentious Cousins

    Lauren Shaffer
    7 Nov 2014 | 5:52 pm
    The Eurasian Wigeon which breeds in Iceland, Europe, and Asia, is a common visitor to America, and is a handsome bird with its rufous head and pinkish breast.  It shares some characteristics with its American cousin, the “Baldpate,” such as the cream-colored crown, white shoulder patch, and black at the back end. As stated in Audubon birds, The Eurasian Wigeon is usually found associating with flocks of its American counterpart. Like the American Wigeon, this species is unorthodox in its feeding habits: It spends much of its time grazing on land like a goose and also loiters…

Have you ever stopped and Google about it? For many of us who think that leather is a byproduct of meat and is just the waste left behind after slaughter, the statement is absolutely wrong. It is not a leftover because animals are primarily killed for leather. In India the value of leather exports is 10 times greater than that of meat exports and that is the reason for it to become one of the most…
