Bottlenose dolphins are so crazy smart and cute we want to be friends with one!
We'd swim into the ocean and introduce ourselves, then, the craziest part is, they could introduce themselves to us: by telling us their name!!
Of course we'd only understand it if we spoke dolphinese but it's still a pretty cool fact.
A recent study published in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B found that bottlenose dolphins have signature whistles and can use the signature whistles of other dolphins.

A new study has been published that shows that a toxin in bee venom can kill the HIV virus.
Scientists hope that this new breakthrough may lead to a gel that can be used to prevent the further spread of the HIV virus.
Here's what one scientist said:
“Our hope is that in places where HIV is running rampant, people could use this gel as a preventive measure to stop the initial infection."
That would be crazy awesome!!
We never thought we would say this, but thank the lawd for bee

In a new study at Italy's University of Padua, they found that male guppies would rather hang around less attractive males when in the presence of females!
This sounds like something that humans could use to their advantage. Ha!

Doesn't make sense?!?!?! Well let us (by us we mean scientists) explain!
Scientists once estimated that over 100 million species of plants and animals roam the earth. With a number that high, many believed that there was no way to discover and name all of them before some went extinct.
Not so fast!
Recently, researchers have found that this may not be the case. With the increase in taxonomists, it is possible to name all of the world's unknown species?!?!
But how does this help??? We'll tell you how!!!

YAYAYAYAAY!!!! There's finally a term for our fanatical fascination with puppies and kitties!
A Yale University study has found the reasoning behind that adorable obsession the world has with all things CUTEz and ADORBz!
Photos of babies, puppies, and kittens cause "cute aggression," which describes the physical reaction we all get when

Great!!! Now we have even MAWR hide n seek partners!!!
Researchers at Emory and Georgia State Universities have found that chimpanzees can play nice with each other, much like humans.
They studied a group by playing the ultimatum game, a test given to humans as well.
In the chimp version, one of them was given tokens, one which represented fairness (each chimp receiving the same amount of banana slices) and the other selfishness. The chimps were able to

Three blind mice…three blind mice…SEE how they run!
After receiving retinal implants, a group of mice now have the ability to see for the first time.
This is a HUGE step towards helping humans with eye diseases!!!!
