World Day for Farmed Animals: The Life All Animals Wish For, Part 1 of 2

Today, October 2nd is World Day for Farmed Animals. On this day, attention is drawn to the abuse and mass exploitation of animals for food and other uses. It is estimated that more than 70 billion cows, pigs, chickens, turkeys and other innocent animals are raised and slaughtered each year. Let’s hope this annual day of remembrance serves as a wake-up call for humanity to understand the suffering

Animals’ Innate Ability to Self-Medicate

Today we will discover some fascinating examples of how animals are able to heal themselves through self-medication, or zoopharmacognosy, by using their intuitive abilities to detect the healing properties of plants. Parasite removal is the most common use of natural therapeutic medicines by animals. In a couple of well documented cases, sick chimpanzees swallowed the juice of the Vernonia

Amazing Animal Camouflage

Amazing Animal Camouflage

Some of us animals are blessed with a unique ability to camouflage ourselves so that we blend into our surroundings. We can do this in different ways depending on our features. For us snow leopards, we use our fur to achieve this, and we are so good at it that we have been given the nickname “ghost of the mountain.” The Eastern Screech Owls are gifted with the ability to blend almost seamlessly wi

The Cutest Animal in the World: The Himalayan Red Panda

Our family, the Himalayan red panda, can be found in parts of Nepal, Bhutan, northern India, northern Myanmar, Tibet, and the western Yunnan Province of China. I have a beautiful red color to my fur and my species only grows to the size of a very large domestic cat. We were named pandas almost 50 years before our better known, giant black and white panda cousins were. Did you know that we a

Hares and Rabbits: The Moon’s Sacred Companions, Part 2 of 2

The earliest known examples of the three hares motif were discovered on paintings in Buddhist cave temples in China dating from the 6th and 7th centuries. Later on, the three-hare motif travelled west along the Silk Road and reached the Middle East and Europe, where it became widely associated with Judaism and Christianity. There the three hares represent the Holy Trinity, the doctrine that God ex

Hares and Rabbits: The Moon’s Sacred Companions, Part 1 of 2

I notice that hares and rabbits differ in their physical appearance. Hares look larger and also have longer hind legs. Hares and rabbits count on the numerous veins in their furless ears to dissipate heat and regulate their body temperature. We snowshoe hares have comparatively smaller ears as heat travels shorter distances through our body and keeps us warmer in the colder climates we reside in!

The Bold Confidence of the Striped Skunk

Our striped skunk family is native to North America, ranging from the Atlantic to Pacific Oceans. We always nest less than 3 kilometers from water. Although we can’t see very well because we are nocturnal and our eyes lack nictating membranes, our ability to smell and hear are exceptional. We normally live alone and although we like to only come out at night, we sometimes stay out looking f

The Secrets to Birds' Vibrant Plumage Coloration, Part 2 of 2

Much research shows that male birds with brighter plumage colors have a better chance of pairing, as females recognize bright plumage colors as an indicator of good health and strength. In order to tell subtle color differences between individual males, females produce more opsins or specialized light sensitive proteins in their retinas over time. This causes the male’s plumage to become more and

Across this vast African continent live 19 species of elephant shrews or sengis, including us, the round-eared elephant shrews. We are quite small, about the size of rodents. Each species has their own territory, and we can be found in various regions except for Western Africa and the Sahara Desert. Our name comes from our elongated noses which are like an elephant’s trunk, and our small, round bo

The Adorable Japanese Dwarf Flying Squirrels

Japanese dwarf flying squirrels inhabit the sub-alpine and boreal evergreen forests of Japan. We are a member of the Sciuridae family, which includes small and medium sized rodents. We prefer to stay in the trees, hanging off branches and eating much healthier vegan foods such as leaves, seeds, buds, cones, sprouts, berries and nuts. There are two types of Japanese flying squirrels: Pteromy
