Chimps Beat Humans In Memory Tests?!

Filed under: Science!AmazingChimpanzee

Chimps have better memory than humans, study finds!

Kyoto University's Primate Research Institute in Inuyama, Japan is really great at making the average human look like a fool!

No, they're not really into putting banana peels at the tops of stairwells… (that just sounds super dangerous), they're into chimpanzee research!

They've found that chimps have an incredible capacity for remembering things.

One of the study's findings was reported by New Scientist as:

New Wetsuits Designed To Stop Shark Attacks!

Filed under: Fashion SmashionScience!SurfingShark

New wetsuits are designed to stop shark attacks!

How does this work? Are the wetsuits made out of chainmail armor??

Ha! Nope! The Australian research company SAMS (Shark Attack Mitigation Services) has come up with some shark deterrent technology to keep ocean-goers safe!

They've built wetsuits that use colors, shapes and special patterns to try and either mimic creatures known to sharks as poisonous or to make the wearer invisible.

Some people actually think the poison fish mimicking suits could actually be a problem, with one shark researcher saying:

Science Figures Out How Bees Fly!

Filed under: Science!InsectsBugs

We didn't know that this was such a mystery!

Insects have to beat their wings up to 500 times a second to stay aloft! That shiz cray!

Exactly how bees are able to do this, science didn't know… until now!!

Two biophysicists at the Japan Synchrotron Radiation Research Institute were studying the difference between insect flight muscles and vertebrate muscles.

The researchers said:

DANGER! Cat Poo Could KILL You!

Filed under: HealthScience!Icky Icky Dog PooDisgusting!

Cat Poop Could Kill You!

Cats poo about 1.2 million metric tons of doo doo in the environment every year in the U.S. alone. That's over 2.6 BILLION pounds of cat dookie!

That's absolutely disgusting!

Some of that poop has an infectious parasite in it called Toxoplasma gondii, which can cause toxoplasmosis in normally healthy people.

New research has linked toxoplasmosis to schizophrenia, obsessive-compulsive disorder, rheumatoid arthritis, brain cancer and much more.

The director of the Stanley Medical Research Institute said:

Man Pets Leopard: It Doesn't Eat Him

Filed under: Cuteness!FunnyLeopard

First off, you may notice that this leopard is in a small cage.

We want to assure you, we did some research and this cat lives at Cedar Cove, a non-profit organization that is "devoted to the care and preservation of endangered large cats while educating the public on their behavior, physiology, habitats and the threats & dangers of extinction."

The cats have large enclosures to run in and get daily one-on-one time with expert keepers, to enrich their lives and make them feel comfortable.

A good example would be this video of a morning kitty massage by senior keeper Steve Klein.

Voodoo the leopard is in kitty heaven!!

Just listen to him purring like that! It's so intense!

Even though this cat is loving it, just the bassy, deepness of his purrrrr is enough to send us running for the hills!

Check out the video (above) to see a man pet a leopard and NOT get eaten! Shocking! LOLz!

Dolphins Have Names And Use Them!

Filed under: Science!DolphinsAmazing

Dolphin

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.
