Sunlight does not reach the deepest parts of the ocean, but life still thrives in the darkness. Below depths of 200 meters, where sunlight cannot reach, some…
A study suggests that small mammals like rodents have adapted to thrive on human-influenced land. They also happen to carry a lot of human pathogens. This increases the risk of infectious disease outbreaks, such as pandemics.

Dogs have a rebellious teenage phase just like humans The first evidence of dogs going through emotional changes during puberty has been discovered. They are more likely to disobey orders from their dog-parents and be more difficult to train. Behavior does improve after puberty when dogs reach 12 months of age.
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
Hey, pet owners, are you quarantining your cat or dog? 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.
