Just like humans, dogs can act like rebellious teens during puberty. They may even be too busy with their ‘ruff’ life to listen to dog-parents! #dogparents #dogsoftwitter #animals
A review of previous anatomy studies found that some “ancient” muscles that are normally present in other primate species may be more common in humans than previously thought
Chinese researchers studied which animals are at risk of becoming infected with the coronavirus and if they can pass it on to others. They discovered that at high levels of exposure, cats and ferrets were more likely to become infected with the novel coronavirus. However, dogs showed no evidence of COVID-19 symptoms or viral carriers.
A group of researchers gathered evidence from previous studies and, using what is known about the virus structure, made the case that the 2019 novel coronavirus was unlikely to have been intentionally engineered.
The one of the largest land predators to have ever lived, the mighty Tyrannosaurus rex, just crowned a new king. On March 21st, a team of University of Alberta scientists described the oldest and largest T. rex ever found. Scotty’s unearthed fossils reveals a fairly complete set of bones including a hips, limbs, and a complete skull, but for a complete, set paleontologists still had to use what they knew about T. rex anatomy to fill in the blanks.
Sexually reproducing animals have their sex determined through many mechanisms. Sex in reptiles such as alligators is determined by egg temperature during incubation. Some species, like the clownfish, can be hermaphroditic, shifting from one gender to another depending on the environmental READ MORE
Most fish farming in the ocean uses net cages that float because it is easier to feed and remove fish at the surface and because some fish species require access to air. However, the surface of the ocean experiences a READ MORE
What makes a person choose a certain kind of fish when shopping at the grocery store? A group of German researchers surveyed shoppers to better understand their buying decisions. This makes it easier for aquaculture farmers to be profitable and consumers to be satisfied.
Measuring heart rate continuously can show how long it truly takes for fish to recover from stressful events.
There may be concerns with genetically modified organisms (GMO), but the effectiveness of gene editing in developing more productive plants and animals for the agriculture industry can not be argued. With the rise of cheap and simple gene editing technologies, READ MORE
