It is often said that a dog is man’s best friend, and here is a story that illustrates that saying. Recently a dog refused to be parted from his dead owners side and stayed by his grave for over two weeks in Chennai India.
Tommy the dog became heartbroken after his owner Bhaskar Shri died in a car accident on August 2nd. Bhaskar adopted Tommy five years ago and since then, the pair became inseparable. According to Bhaskar’s mother, Tommy used to accompany Bhaskar to the various construction sites where he used to work.
A southern Chinese Zoo has celebrated the extremely rare birth of surviving panda triplets which is the first time this has ever happened.
The triplets were born to a mother named Juxio and arrived on July 29th but the Chimelong Safari Park where the triplets were born only announced the birth on August 13th because they were worried the triplets may not survive. Panda cubs have very high rates of mortality the zoo said in a statement.
Demand for ivory has produced a drastic reduction in the number of African elephants with poachers hunting more elephants faster than they can reproduce according to a new study. The study also found that poaching deaths have affected over half of all elephant families in the Samburu National Reserve in Kenya.
In 2011 eight per cent of the African elephant population was wiped out, or an estimated 40,000 elephants making it the worst year on record since 1998. In the absence of poaching, the elephant population in Africa would grow by about 4.2 per cent each year.
European Zoo’s may be about to experience a renaissance in Rhino reproduction as researchers seek to improve the success rate of these animals mating in captivity according to a new study.
The Black Rhino is endangered because it is illegally hunted for its horn and also has a very low birth rate in captivity the researchers said.
In order to find out why some species of captive rhinos breed very easily whilst others never reproduce, English researchers undertook a detailed study of 39 captive rhinos which constitute roughly 90 per cent of the European rhino population.
A new study has made some startling revelations about bear intelligence. The study undertaken by Washington State University, placed some donuts on a string that was deliberately out of reach of grizzly bears. Of the eight bears that were tested, six pushed stumps or plastic boxes under the treats to boost them up to receive their prize.
Whilst this kind of use of tools is primitive it does show that bears have cognitive thinking skills and are able to creatively problem solve.
“Cognition is really describing the part of the brain that actually thinks, rather than reacting based on instinct or emotion. In this case, it’s thinking about solving a problem by manipulating an inanimate object.” said veterinarian Lynne Nelson, assistant director of the Washington State University (WSU) Bear Research Education and Conservation Center.
