GENOCHOICE - Create Your Own Genetically Healthy Child Online! The Legend of Jackalope – Jackalope It’s an aggressive species, willing to use its antlers to fight. Thus, the jackalope is also sometimes called the “warrior rabbit.” The jackalope is the product of a male jackrabbit and a female antelope. Jackalopes possess an uncanny ability to mimic human sounds. When chased, the jackalope will use its vocal abilities to elude capture. Jackalope milk is particularly sought after because it is believed to be a powerful aphrodisiac—for which reason the jackalope is also sometimes referred to as the ‘horny rabbit.’ The town of Douglas, Wyoming, has declared itself to be the Jackalope capital of America because, according to legend, the first jackalope was spotted there around 1829. The jackalope is now most commonly sighted in the states of Colorado, Wyoming and Nebraska.

The Pacific Northwest Tree Octopus Rare photo of the elusive tree octopus The Pacific Northwest tree octopus (Octopus paxarbolis) can be found in the temperate rainforests of the Olympic Peninsula on the west coast of North America. An intelligent and inquisitive being (it has the largest brain-to-body ratio for any mollusk), the tree octopus explores its arboreal world by both touch and sight. Reaching out with one of her eight arms, each covered in sensitive suckers, a tree octopus might grab a branch to pull herself along in a form of locomotion called tentaculation; or she might be preparing to strike at an insect or small vertebrate, such as a frog or rodent, or steal an egg from a bird's nest; or she might even be examining some object that caught her fancy, instinctively desiring to manipulate it with her dexterous limbs (really deserving the title "sensory organs" more than mere "limbs",) in order to better know it.

California's Velcro Crop Under Challenge by Ken Umbach California's important Velcro crop, vital to the clothing, footwear, and sporting goods industries, has been severely stressed by drought, disease, and pests. Background Velcro®, an engineered crop, consists of two distinct strains: hooks and loops. As any user of Velcro knows, a strip of hooks clings to a strip of loops as the springy hook-shaped fibers latch through tiny but firm loops. California's climate and soil conditions make the state an ideal venue for and successful producer of both strains of Velcro. For competitive and industrial confidentiality reasons, of course, the crop is not widely highlighted in crop reports. The Issues All in all, cultivation is a demanding and costly process, making profit margins unusually vulnerable to price swings and crop productivity losses. Status As the chart and table below so starkly show, the combined assaults on the Velcro crop have had marked effects. Recommendations Postscript (December 1996).
Research Feline Reactions to Bearded Men by Catherine Maloney, Fairfield University, Fairfield, Connecticut, Sarah J. Lichtblau, University of Illinois, Champaign, Illinois Nadya Karpook, University of Florida, Gainesville, Florida Carolyn Chou, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Anthony Arena-DeRosa, Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts A feline subject reacts to a photograph of a man with a full dark semicircular beard. Abstract Cats were exposed to photographs of bearded men. Findings of Prior Investigators Boone (1958) found inconclusive results in studying feline reactions to clean-shaven men. Norquist (1988) performed a series of experiments in which cats were exposed to photographs of Robert Bork (not pictured here), a man whose beard is confined largely to the underside of the jaw. Materials Five photographs were used in the study. The test subjects were female cats, all between the ages of four and six. 214 cats participated in the study. Methods Results Notes
