Parrots Name Their Babies

Parrots Name Their Babies

Don't call me Polly, bitch!!

According to researchers at Cornell University, parrots are named by their parents — and not their pirate.

Scientists had already observed dolphins, crows, primates and parrots have unique calls when they want the attention of specific members of their groups. But they wanted to know how our animal friends got their names. Do they name themselves? Are they named after a defining characteristic (like Joe form work with the big ass you call bigass Joe)??

After careful observations the Cornellians figured out it's the proud parrot parents who gave each chick its name.

Much like a human, the adult parrot will choose a name for its young soon after it's born. Each parrot, though, may tweak its own signature call as it grows older, elongating a whistle here or shortening a chirp there, essentially giving itself a nickname.

It makes sense, they are the only English speaking animal. LOL.

James Franco Prefers Actors To Apes

Filed under: James FrancoApe

Uh, RUDE!

We'd like to apologize to our Chimp and Gorilla readers. We do not share the same point of view as our pal James.

Franco told Jimmy Kimmel that while making latest flick Planet of the Apes he never worked with actual creatures. An actor wearing "a grey pajama-like thing with wires" played his Ape friend Caesar.

James said it was better than his last primate picture, Ape, cause he worked with live animals that had the habit of slinging poop at him!

Gross.

Rev Run Meets A Cheetah And A Gangsta Monkey

Perez isn't the only one visiting the zoo this summer!

Run's House star Reverend Run Simmons left his mansion to visit the Cheetah Run at Busch Gardens in Tampa, last week.

Simmons and his family spent time gazing at the amazingly fast felines who were cooling down with frozen treats at their new habitat, which opened this spring.

Later, the family's littlest members had fun meeting Sesame Street characters while the Reverend's son, Russy, and his pal Brandon Boles, took on the fierce new triple launch rollercoaster, Cheetah Hunt.

The purdy kitties weren't the only animals the Rev got up close and personal with.

"Gangsta monkey," he Tweeted with a photo of one very laid back primate.

"This animal here is relaxed alllllll the way chillin."

This Monkey Might Cure AIDS

This Monkey Might Cure AIDS

SRSLY!

Sooty mangabeys (yep, real name) are a monkey species found on the western coast of central Africa who's unique immunity to SIV, a relative of HIV, has intrigued medical researchers for decades.

Now we know just how their immunity works.

Sooty mangabeys are able to avoid the chain of events that cause the immune system to break down, thanks to a unique type of T cell called a central memory T cell.

These sooty mangabeys might well offer a new way to help cope humans cope with HIV infection and avoid AIDS.

The key will be better understanding the mechanisms of their central memory T cells and figuring out how they avoid activating CCR5, which is the main reason why their immune systems are able to survive these infections essentially intact.
