The Secrets to Birds' Vibrant Plumage Coloration, Part 1 of 2

The Secrets to Birds' Vibrant Plumage Coloration, Part 1 of 2

"We belong to the family of passerine birds, who are renowned for the striking colors the males display on their plumage. Many people consider us one of the most beautiful birds in North America. Therefore, we have a nickname 'nonpareil' in French, which means “without equal.” In Mexico we are commonly known as siete colores, meaning 'seven colors.' ""Carotenoids, melanin and porphyrins are

The Coolest Animal Dads, Part 1 of 2

The Coolest Animal Dads, Part 1 of 2

Being a father is one of the toughest jobs in the world, and their love is often underrated. It takes a tremendous amount of work and caring to be a good dad for both humans and animals alike. In this two-part program, I will introduce some of the greatest animal papas I know of, who demonstrate the essence of fatherhood through their dedication and sacrifices for their young. The first great fathers in the animal kingdom to discuss are the red fox dads. In March, when the babies are born, the father shares the burden of raising the new arrivals. While the mother stays in the den to nurse and care for the babies, he will bring her food every four to six hours. When the cubs start coming out of their abode to explore the world, dad will play as well as groom and lick them to show his affection. Once the young foxes grow bigger, he stops delivering food to them. This is daddy’s tough love, even though it’s hard for him to do. He hides food nearby, and covers it with twigs and leaves, to train his young cubs to forage it for themselves. Eventually, dad begins to take his offspring on trips to teach them the survival skills needed for life. As you can see, dad red foxes love their little ones as much as their mothers. What attentive and indulgent fathers they are! Male seahorses, and male pipefish and seadragons who are close relatives, are the most well-known and extraordinary fathers of the animal kingdom, as they are the only males that undergo pregnancy. A seahorse dad can carry up to 2,000 eggs for 2 to 4 weeks in his belly pouch and does similar things that a human mother does. This pouch operates very much the same as a human mom’s uterus, providing the embryos with nutrients and oxygen, removing their wastes, supplying antibacterial molecules, and regulating the blood flow, salinity, and temperature levels for the little ones. When the young seahorses are ready to be born, their father gives birth through energetically-costly muscular contractions, just like human mothers. As a dedicated and adorable caring father, seahorse dads truly deserve a cool daddy recognition!

True Love Between Animals

True Love Between Animals

Shiro first headed for the beach. Without any hesitation, he ran into the water and started swimming. The distance from Aka to Zamami is 3.6 kilometers, and the seas can be rough. Altogether, it took about three hours for Shiro to reach the island. There, waiting for him, was a beautiful female mongrel named Marilyn. That is why Shiro repeatedly swam back and forth between the islands. The love story of the two dogs became so popular throughout Japan that a movie was made about it in 1988 entitled, “I Want to See Marilyn.”

Animals Rescuing Others: Heroes of Compassion

Delightful viewers, I am Alea, a vegan tuxedo cat from the beautiful and pristine Gimmelwald in the Alps of Switzerland. We animals have deep love for all beings. Animals will go to great lengths to aid a human or animal friend who is in danger. Homer, a black cat, sadly lost both of his eyes due to an eye infection when he was about two weeks old.

Cool Cooperation: Animals and Plants Balancing Nature

Symbiosis is the interaction of two different organisms living together, usually with mutual benefits. There are many examples of symbiosis in our world’s diverse ecosystems, one of which is the leafcutter ants and their special crop. The original farmers on earth are thought to be the leafcutter ants. They have been intensively farming fungi in the tropical rainforests of South America as early as 60 million years ago. These ants forage for vegetation, not intending to eat it as food, but to munch the leaves into a pulp for fungi to eat which are the real source of nutrition for the ants.

Sea Angels: The Glamorous Light Makers

Sea Angels: The Glamorous Light Makers

Icelanders are surrounded by the ocean, which is so mysterious and superabundant in flora and fauna, well beyond humanity’s imagination. Please take a closer look at our luminescent body, wing-like fins, and how gracefully we flutter our wings. We love to cluster together. Don’t we look like heavenly beings flying through the blue skies? there are two groups of sea angels. The larger subspecies, like me, inhabit icy regions and can be up to 8.5 centimeters long. The smaller subspecies live in warmer tropical waters and measure 1 to 2 centimeters in length. Once upon a time, there were snails developing skills to live in water to find a better place to survive. They ventured into an unknown world, the oceans. They were sea snails finding ways to inhabit the bottom of the sea. Some sea snails wanting to live closer to the water’s surface were courageous enough to give up their shells and evolved into a totally new species, the sea angels. Although we lost our eyes during the evolutionary process, we can use the two horns on our head to sense our surroundings. We also have greatly improved our swimming skills. We can swim horizontally and vertically. Generally, we enjoy swimming upward in a very slow and graceful rhythm, like flying angels, and this is how we acquired our beautiful name. Many studies have indicated that the life span of a sea angel is one to two years. The light we emit is called bioluminescence. Like us, over three-fourths of marine beings can produce light, mostly blue and green in color. Making light is not something mysterious or supernatural. It is created through chemical reactions or made by host bacteria. We depend on you to keep the seas clean and healthy so please minimize your purchases of single-use plastics and, of course, stick to plant-based seafood only!

The Coolest Animal Dads, Part 2 of 2

The Coolest Animal Dads, Part 2 of 2

In this episode, I will introduce more extraordinary cool daddies in the animal world. They are all champion fathers in their own ways. The endurance winner is the emperor penguin dad, for sure! These fluffy and wobbling birds live and breed in the Antarctic landscape. In winter, after the female transfers her precious single egg to her partner, she goes to the sea straight away to replenish herself with food. To keep the egg warm in the brutal Antarctic weather, he must balance it on top of his feet and press it up against his “brood pouch,” a skin flap on his belly, and cover the egg with his plumage. Additionally, he utilizes group hugs to his advantage! Emperor penguins are famous for creating massive huddles, and these gatherings allow penguins to save energy for warming their cherished chicks that are still developing. Until the moms’ return, these dads guard their eggs alone for around 75 days. They also fast for about 120 days from the beginning of the breeding cycle, which ultimately results in their body weight being reduced by nearly half. Male Barbary macaques are perhaps the proudest animal dads. They often interact with their offspring for hours and carry them; this doting on infants includes caring for the young of others in their group, called a troop, as well. These proud dads nudge and chatter their teeth while holding up their darlings in gatherings. Sand gobies are passionate papas at the top of their game. After the eggs are laid, they defend the eggs intensively and use their pectoral fins to fan them with a motherly touch. This action creates oxygenated currents around the eggs, which encourages them to grow. Giant water bug fathers are the clear winners of the weightlifting category. The female will lay and stick her eggs on the dad’s back. A giant water bug dad can carry up to 150 eggs on him! When talking about heroic fathers, few can match the Burchell’s sandgrouse. The brave sandgrouse daddies take on a crucial mission; these frequent flyers make long daily trips to watering holes, sometimes traveling over 160 kilometers, to fill up for their families. After the little ones have their drink, the daddies immediately take sand baths, to remove the strong scent of wet feathers to deter predators. In this series, we have introduced some extraordinary paternal parenting skills in the animal kingdom, which make for a wonderful dedication to all fathers, be they human or animal.

A Golden Age of Animals

00:13:50

A Golden Age of Animals

Gold-colored animals are relatively rarer, so they are admired by humans, just like the precious metal! Regarded by some as the world’s most beautiful equine, our breed is famed for our toughness, resilience, and endurance, in addition to our legendary speed and intelligence. Some of our breed looks as if they had been dipped in gold! Another animal with a radiant, golden coat is the Golden Retriever, which is one of America’s most popular dog breeds. A domestic cat known for having a golden coat is the ginger cat or tabby. The golden jewel scarab beetle of Central America is one of the world’s most brightly colored insects. The goldenrod crab spiders, native to North America, make flowers such as goldenrod and daisies their home. The Panamanian golden frog is a type of toad. This species is cherished by Panamanians and is the national animal. Banana slugs are often bright golden yellow and sometimes spotted with brown blotches, thus resembling a ripe banana.

Traditions of Love between Humans and Animal Co-Inhabitants

Evidence of animals being considered as divine can be found in ancient and modern cultures and religions. According to a CNN report, researchers found the remains of chickens and brown hares from the British Iron Age in southern and southeast England, UK. They had been buried carefully, and their skeletons were fully intact. Archaeological evidence and historical accounts prove that these two anim

The Laughing Kookaburra of Australia

If you’ve never heard a kookaburra singing, just think of your laughter after hearing a really funny joke. That gives you an idea of the echoing sound of the ever-chuckling kookaburra! In indigenous Australian culture, kookaburras are viewed as emotionally fragile birds. Making fun of us can hurt our feelings, thus taking away our joyous laugh which serves to wake up our world. It is believed that great respect should be shown to us at all times to keep harmony and happiness on our planet.

Wings of Love, Part 1 of 2: The Romantic Bowerbird

Wings of Love, Part 1 of 2: The Romantic Bowerbird

They are among the best representatives of birds, as they have an aesthetic sense, and express their love and affection through art. There are 20 species of bowerbirds living in Australia and Papua New Guinea. With most varieties, the male builds a sophisticated structure called a bower for courtship purposes. The range of objects he gathers is amazing; fruits, flowers, feathers, and even human-made items like buttons, bottle caps, glass marbles, ballpoint pens, you name it! The male bowerbirds need to be excellent artists to win a lady's heart, as females are style-oriented and exceptionally choosy. She is the one to decide if the bower is true artwork, and, along with other factors that are considered, selects the partner with the most beautiful bower. That's why the male bowerbird makes his structure so eye-catching, so as to impress the hen initially to earn a place in the finals. Even their eggs are intricate works of art. Many human beings have been inspired to create their own artworks by observing the skillful designs of the adored bowers. A well-known American scientist, Dr. Jared Diamond, referred to the bowerbirds as the “most human-kind of all birds.” Bowerbird art has inspired humanity's contemporary art. So the bowerbird's repurposing habit has influenced people to a degree. Jane Perkins, who is known for her recycled art, has also adopted similar practices. She uses discarded materials, mostly plastic, to re-interpret masterpieces of past artists. And she named her website. “Blue Bowerbird.” Lovely! In addition, the bowerbird has inspired many plastic recycling initiatives as well. For example, Qantas Airways had the world's first-ever zero-waste commercial flight in May 2019. This event initiated the company’s mission to remove 100 million pieces of single-use plastic from flights by the end of 2021, thus reducing the inflight rubbish generated by 75%. What is the name of this noble initiative? The Bowerbird Project!

Veterinarian Dr. Jonathan Bach - Healing with Animal Acupuncture, Part 2 of 2

Now, the common misconception is that those needles must be dipped in medication, steroids, something. And I say, no, no, no, they’re just stainless steel needles. There’s no magic here. There’s no medicine. When we put the needles in the acupoints, that’s where the action actually starts to occur. Oftentimes when a patient has the acupuncture, it does have a calming effect, and most clients will report that for the rest of the day or the next day, their pet is more quiet than usual.

Guardians of Health: Medical Detection Dogs

Guardians of Health: Medical Detection Dogs

Greetings, delightful viewers! I am Bless, a medical detection dog from Wales. The canines from Wales wish peace and wellness to all of you! We canines excel in so many things. We make our human partners happy and healthy by lowering their stress levels, brightening their mood, and lessening their blood pressure simply by being near them. We are loyal, protective, loving, and fun. Scientific studies have proven that we can even save people’s lives by alerting them of disease or a serious shift in physical condition because our keen noses can sense tiny changes in odors from their bodies. Many accredited organizations, such as Medical Detection Dogs in Milton, UK, the American Scent Dog Association in Arkansas, USA, and Dogs4Diabetics in California, USA, train canines to identify odors associated with particular diseases using reward-based methods. Dogs have learned to detect various cancers such as breast, lung, prostate, ovarian, and colorectal. In addition, we can also point out the presence of malaria in a person and signal to people certain oncoming symptoms of type 1 diabetes, postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS), and Addison’s disease. According to the late Dr. George Preti, a leading American scientific expert on human odors during his time, the metabolic chemicals known as volatile organic compounds (VOCs) generated by cancer cells change the smell of blood and other body fluids. Dogs can pick up the signature odors of existing cancer cells. In addition to odors, we can also pick up variations in skin temperature. This means that perhaps we could determine if someone is experiencing a fever. We love humans and are always willing to help. I am very happy that we dogs can assist people with life-threatening conditions. I am proud of all the canines that have excelled in helping individuals with medical disorders to have a normal life!

Ganbaatar means “steel hero.” You can imagine that horses like me are not only strong but swift. When we run untethered and unconstrained across the Mongolian landscape, it is a spectacular sight to see.

Many people think that culture is a characteristic only found in human societies. I am thrilled to tell you that modern scientific research shows that animals including primates, cetaceans, birds, fish and insects also have traditions that are transmitted across their social groups and to new generations. We animals that live in a community are just like humans, having our norms, traditions and cultural practices that characterize who we are and help us to adapt to our particular ecological niches.

Caring for Furry Pals During a Lockdown, Part 2 of 2

Caring for Furry Pals During a Lockdown, Part 2 of 2

"Today, Nala and I will cover more lockdown-related issues human caregivers need to be aware of concerning their beloved animal pals. I believe we also need some mental stimulation during these tough times. I think music is another good way to calm everyone down. While listening to these wonderful compositions, I am pacified and feel so relaxed. It just occurred to me that if an animal gets sick, how can the human parents help them get better?" "It’s really a challenge when furry kids fall ill during a lockdown. They should call their vet first and explain the symptoms to receive guidance on how to help. Never administer care without consulting with a veterinarian for advice as it may worsen the situation. It’s also advisable to keep a first aid kit on hand to ensure they get the help needed for timely treatment." "What if a human caregiver happens to get sick?" "In that case, they should arrange for someone else to care for their furry babies. If it’s not possible, as a precaution, they should not cuddle, pet, kiss, or share food or bedding with their four-legged kids. When lockdowns are lifted, people soon resume their normal workday routines, and their animal companions may have to make more adjustments. After the lockdown ended, I felt so down that I even lost my appetite when Mom returned to work." "That is a kind of separation anxiety. How can you prevent this from happening?" "They can start with short absences from home, gradually leaving their animal pal to spend more time alone. Other techniques include getting them to play with their toys independently or going to bed by themselves. Make sure the transition is as smooth and stress-free as possible so that the alteration isn’t too sudden. Even though lockdown measures are easing in some countries, we still cannot take it lightly. We need to take precautions to reduce our chances of being infected or spreading the virus if we want to protect our families."

Not only do canine and feline companions provide psychological support to humans, but we also are very gifted in assisting with your physical conditions. But why are dogs and cats able to relieve your stress? It is because they can smell it with their nose. When you are very sad, and when you pour your heart out and talk to them, they can smell the changes in your hormones. So, in fact, they often comfort you. “It’s ok; it’s all right.” After all your sorrows are washed away, you will feel better.
