Ever smell a hyena??
No?! Really?? Oh… well they stink. BAD.
Mainly from a scent gland under their tails.
Many animals like to rub their butts against stuff to make their presence known.
The same is true for hyenas. They can tell sex, age, family or clan and more just by smelling other hyenas' markings.
Scientists have long theorized that these smells aren't made by the animals themselves but

Turns out it isn't only humans whom are OCD about washing their hands.
Chameleons are, too!
When we first began to watch this video we were skeptical about a chameleon willingly washing its hands.
But after viewing this amazing sequence of events - we have a whole new level of respect for the Chameleon species.
If only humans would wash their hands as diligently as this chameleon, and we could stop the spread of germs.
We'd never be sick ever again - it'd be a modern miracle. And all thanks to one chameleon.
And yes this little dude is cooler than the Geico Gekko or whatever the hell that thing is. And it isn't even close!!!
Ch-ch-check out this amazing video of a chameleon washing its hands (above) !!!

Doggy Dental Hygiene: Dental Treats
"Treats such as hard plastic bones, sterilized real bones, ice cubes, cow hooves, antlers, bully sticks are too hard for your pet and may cause tooth fractures. Dental treats that have received the Registered Seal by the Veterinary Oral Health Council (VOHC) are recommended.
The VOHC is an organization that exists to recognize products that meet preset standards of plaque and tartar/calculus retardation in dogs and cats. VOHC is an excellent resource for dental diets, treats, water additives, gels, toothpastes, and tooth coatings, that help retard plaque and tartar on the teeth of animals."
