There is a science behind why we like zoos!
New research shows that the human brain responds to animals like no other person, place, or thing.
The studies co-author Ralph Adolphs explained to Discovery News that –
"it is important for the brain to be able to rapidly detect animals. The reasons for this are probably several, but would likely include the need to avoid predators and catch prey."
The scientists found that neurons in the right amygdala (one of the two almond-shaped groups of neurons located deep within the brain) responded preferentially to pictures of animals, whether they were of cute little critters or threatening big beasts.
The research suggest that animals may even affect our emotions.
Maybe this explains why over 100,000,000 have watched Sneezing Panda!

The boys of the fab indie folk group Bon Iver LOVE cats!
There was always pussies around when the band records. Bon Iver frontman Justin Vernon would let his kitties — Flo and Melmon — hang around their studio recoding studio. Justin said:
"I'm really into my pets. They are a good thing to have around for your brain. It's good to take care of something other than yourself."
"They are just weirdos. Totally mutt cats, but they have a lot of love and hunt and play outside. They live the high life. I can't really have a dog with my lifestyle."
Ouch! We think that was a burn to dog lovers!
