Tower Built For Goats

The domestic goat (Capra aegagrus hircus) is a subspecies of goat domesticated from the wild goat of southwest Asia and Eastern Europe. The goat is a member of the Bovidae family and is closely related to the sheep as both are in the goat-antelope subfamily Caprinae. There are over three hundred distinct breeds of goat
Goats are one of the oldest domesticated species. Goats have been used for their milk, meat, hair, and skins over much of the world. In the twentieth century they also gained in popularity as pets.
Female goats are referred to as does or nannies, intact males as bucks orbillies; their offspring are kids. Note that many goat breeders prefer the terms “buck” and “doe” to “billy” and “nanny”. Castrated males are wethers. Goat meat from younger animals is called kid or cabrito, and from older animals is sometimes called chevon, or in some areas “mutton”.
The Modern English word goat comes from the Old English gāt which meant “she-goat”, and this in turn derived from Proto-Germanic *gaitaz (cf. Old Norse and Dutch geit “goat”, German Geiß “she-goat”, and Gothic gaits “goat”), ultimately from Proto-Indo-European *ghaidos meaning “young goat” (cf. Latin haedus “kid”), itself perhaps from a root meaning “jump” (assuming that Old Church Slavonic zajęcǐ “hare”, Sanskrit jihīte “he moves” are related).









Cat Born With Two Faces

The domesticated cat and its closest wild ancestor are both diploid organisms that possess 38 chromosomes and roughly 20,000 genes. About 250 heritable genetic disorders have been identified in cats, many similar to human inborn errors. The high level of similarity among the metabolisms of mammals allows many of these feline diseases to be diagnosed using genetic tests that were originally developed for use in humans, as well as the use of cats in the study of the human diseases.
An example of a mutation that is shared among all felines, including the big cats, is a mutant chemo sensor in their taste buds that prevents them from tasting sweetness, which may explain their indifference to fruits, berries, and other sugary foods. In some breeds of cats congenital deafness is very common, with most white cats (but not albinos) being affected, particularly if they also have blue eyes. The genes responsible for this defect are unknown, but the disease is studied in the hope that it may shed light on the causes of hereditary deafness in humans.
Since a large variety of coat patterns exist within the various cat breeds, the cat is an excellent animal to study the coat genetics of hair growth and coloration. Several genes interact to produce cats’ hair color and coat patterns.



Funny Traffic Signs That Include Animals

Traffic signs or road signs are signs erected at the side of roads to provide information to road users. With traffic volumes increasing over the last eight decades, many countries have adopted pictorial signs or otherwise simplified and standardized their signs to facilitate international travel where language differences would create barriers, and in general to help enhance traffic safety. Such pictorial signs use symbols (often silhouettes) in place of words and are usually based on international protocols. Such signs were first developed in Europe, and have been adopted by most countries to varying degrees. Traffic signs can be grouped into several types. For example, Annexe 1 of the Vienna Convention on Road Signs and Signals (1968), which at 30 June 2004 had 52 signatory countries, defines eight categories of signs:
A. Danger warning signs
B. Priority signs
C. Prohibitory or restrictive signs
D. Mandatory signs
E. Special regulation signs
F. Information, facilities, or service signs
G. Direction, position, or indication signs
H. Additional panels
In the United States, Canada and Australia signs are categorised as follows:
Regulatory signs
Warning signs
Guide signs
Street signs
Route marker signs
Expressway signs
Freeway signs
Welcome Signs
Informational signs
Recreation and cultural interest signs
Emergency management (civil defense) signs
Temporary traffic control (construction or work zone) signs
School signs
Railroad and light rail signs
Bicycle signs






Baby Marmosets

Marmosets are the 22 New World monkey species of the genera Callithrix, Cebuella, Callibella, and Mico. All four genera are part of the biological family Callitrichidae. The term marmoset is also used in reference to the Goeldi’s Monkey, Callimico goeldii, which is closely related.Most marmosets are about 20 centimetres (8 in) long. Relative to other monkeys, they show some apparently primitive features: they have claws rather than nails, and tactile hairs on their wrists. They lack wisdom teeth, and their brain layout seems to be relatively primitive. Their body temperature is unusually variable, changing by up to 4 °C (7 °F) in a day.

Cockfighting not hen fighting

Cockfighting is a sport that was popular in India, China, Persia and other Eastern countries during the ancient times. It involves two cocks fighting each other in a fighting ring until one of the birds survives. A great deal of money is usually wagered in the sport. The cocks, also known as gamecocks, are given intensive training when they are as young as one or two years old. The birds are fed a high protein diet of fresh fruits and vegetables in order for them to sustain high levels of intensity.

Cockfight

This blood sport, like many others, is illegal in most parts of the world today. However, it is still popular in many places like Puerto Rico, Mexico, the Philippines and Haiti. The sport is only played with roosters and not with hens because you can put a thousand hens together and they won’t fight but the rooster are have a natural instinct for fighting.

Baby Elephant Ruins His Bath

Way to go, dummy. I know you hate baths, but if you immediately cover yourself in sawdust, they’re just going to make you take another one.
