The Pallas´s Cat, also called Manul, is a small wildcat living in the grasslands and steppe of central asia.
It is named after the german naturalist Peter Simon Pallas, who first described the species in 1776.

That is the most expressive and gelatinous cat I have ever seen.

LOL

Wait…that’s real?! 

Yup!

This is a lion making a kill in the wild. I know it’s very graphic but I think it’s important to show just how brutal nature can be.

The pheasant-size hoatzin fans its feathers, often while strutting along a branch, but flaps its wings clumsily when it takes to the air. It lives near swamps, digests food by fermentation like a cow, and is so odd that scientists can’t decide how to classify it.

Classification: Draco Vulgaris

In case you’re having a bad day, meet Roo, the two-legged chihuahua, and Penny, the fluffy chicken, who just happen to be best friends. Both were rescued by Duluth Animal Hospital and now spend their days together.

Robert Sapolsky about his study of the Keekorok baboon troop from National Geographic’s Stress: Portrait of a Killer.

#I’m not saying we should cull all alpha broskis      #but…     

I am. I’m gonna go ahead and say that.

Interesting for various therories.

Did some research, here are my conclusions: So, first of all, this dude has the same undergrad degree as me. Baller. Despite the hair, hes also a top dog at stanford and totally legit. Second, yes, this is science. The implications are perhaps taken a bit far, but the underlying mechanisms are not only legitimate, but tried and true. Another experiment has demonstrated primates will instill fears and taboos across gerenations (specifically, climbing a platform for delicious food when in the first generation it elicited a shock, even though there was no shock in subsequent generations.) If aggression led to death, or if aggression was never an option, there is no reason to believe it also couldn’t be taught as wrong or unacceptable. What’s even MORE amazing about this situation is that in baboons, males migrate and females stay. What this means is, the lack of aggression IS NOT GENETIC. NEW MALES EMIGRATE TO THIS GROUP. New males with new genes, not descened from the original TB-infected clan at all. Once they join, though, they LEARN not to be aggressive. Other clans in the area, where these males originate, ARE STILL AGGRESSIVE. The females who stay (and the young males and new alphas) are TRAINING new members to be nice. And it’s working. Also awesome is that the cortisol (stress hormone, which can cause chronic disease) levels in this clan is WAY lower than in other clans in the area. So it’s likely that they’re healthier, too. BOO YA
