This is so cool!
From May 25th to June 2nd, at Warner Bros. Studio Tour London there will be a selection of Harry Potter animal actors as part of the tour!
They're trained by Head Animal Trainer Julie Tottman and the animals will be revisiting the sets they worked on during the filming of the Harry Potter movies.
Each year, 17,000 people receive a kidney transplant, but it's the number of people that don't receive one that is so astounding.
THAT number is about 17,000 people times FIVE, which is why news that scientists have made functioning rat kidneys at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston is SO amazing!!!!
When the kidneys were transplanted into rats - they effectively produced urine for the rodents!
Normally rat urine isn't very exciting, but this could be a first step towards creating replacement organs for folks who suffer from kidney diseases.

This is insanely scary!
A seven-year-old girl in England was bit on the face and arms by a FOOT LONG RAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The child's screams woke the parents up who found their traumatized daughter bleeding and in tears. The rat then scurried under the bed.
A neuroscientist has linked the brains of two rats together, so when one of them pushes a lever - the other one does, too!
The rats were trained to push a lever when a light went on, but after a while, electrodes were placed in the rodent's brains.
Soon they had one rat pushing a level because of the light, and another rat pushing the lever only as a response to the brain stimulation it felt from its partner rat.
One of the more disgusting consequences of Hurricane Sandy hitting New York is an increase in rats!
After the hurricane hit and all that flooding happened, tons of rats moved inland.
It's gotten so bad that NYC officials are calling for a publicly financed program to bait, kill and remove the rats.
A rat sees dead people!
Not really, but a rat was given a sixth sense by scientists who developed a system that connects a head-mounted sensor to a brain region that normally processes touch sensations from whiskers.
A scientist said:
Hurricane Sandy is wrecking A LOT of shiz…in the human world and the animal world too.
The superstorm may force the evacuation of 12,000 marine animals at the NY Aquarium, pet food had to be recalled and WORST of all (not really) Alec Baldwin had to walk his dogs in the RAIN!
Now the rat population may be kaputz even though some believe the storm would bring on the Rat Apocalypse.
