Official facebook page: Ancient Domesticated Dog Skull Found in Siberian Cave If you think a Chihuahua doesn't have much in common with a Rottweiler, you might be on to something. An ancient dog skull, preserved in a cave in the Altai Mountains of Siberia for 33,000 years, presents some of the oldest known evidence of dog domestication and, together with equally ancient dog remains from a cave in Belgium, indicates that domestication of dogs may have occurred repeatedly in different geographic locations rather than with a single domestication event. In other words, man's best friends may have originated from more than one ancient ancestor, contrary to what some DNA evidence previously has indicated.
Pictured: Three cheetahs spare tiny antelope's life... and play with him instead By Daily Mail Reporter Updated: 19:36 GMT, 5 February 2010 Hello little antelope, would you like to play with us? Coming from three deadly cheetahs, it's the kind of invitation that's best refused - but amazingly, this impala escaped unscathed from its encounter. Luckily for the youngster, it seems these three male cheetahs simply weren't hungry. No claws for alarm: Astonishingly, these cheetahs, whose instinct is to hunt for food, decide to play with this baby impala That's because unlike other big cats, the cheetah hunts in the daytime, either in the early morning or late afternoon.
Orangutans use Apple iPads for fun and 'mental stimulus' Since Apple launched the iPad, it’s become integrated into our daily lives. It's not merely a communication or entertainment tool – the iPad is used by commercial pilots to access flight plans and cut down on paper, by enterprises (such Ford where salesmen use sales apps) and in education to encourage interactive learning. The latest creative use of the iPad is to study animal behaviour in orangutans. The Smithsonian National Zoo in Washington is one of 12 zoos around the world that have joined a program called 'Apps for Apes', which aims to enrich the lives of captive primates by offering them fun activities using old, donated iPads. For two short periods every week, zookeepers hold up iPads and the orangutans reach through enclosure bars to play cognitive games, drawing programs, musical instruments and even watch TV programs with the help of simple gestures.
