When we watch animals foraging for food in nature, we now have to ask, are they visiting the grocery store or are they visiting the pharmacy? — Ecologist Mark Hunter
Animals “vaccinate” themselves and their offspring as well. House Sparrows and Finches: They add high-nicotine cigarette butts to their nests to reduce mite infestations.
Wood Ants: They use an antimicrobial resin from conifer trees in their nests, which protects their colony from the growth of microbes.
Monarch Butterflies: When infected with parasites, they lay their eggs on anti-parasitic milkweed in order to protect their offspring from infection.
Now, have a little chuckle:
SINGLE BLACK FEMALE seeks male companionship, ethnicity unimportant. I’m a very good girl who LOVES to play. I love long walks in the woods, riding in your pickup truck, hunting, camping and fishing trips, cozy winter nights lying by the fire. Candlelight dinners will have me eating out of your hand. I’ll be at the front door when you get home from work, wearing only what nature gave me…. Call (404) 875-6420 and ask for Annie, I’ll be waiting…..

Leanne Hall (SEPTEMBER 11TH) NEW YORK — Today is the anniversary of that fateful day of terror. Not all first responder victims were of the two-legged kind. Read how the only police dog killed in the attacks did his job that day, and how he was rightfully honored along with the other fallen heroes. Rest in peace, Sirius. — Global Animal

This is an as-seen-on-TV product, advertised for $19.99 plus shipping and handling. I ordered it tonight, and before the order was complete (I wasn’t directed to a shopping cart or final order screen that itemizes the order), I received an email: TOTAL — $74.65! WTF! The phone number is a Monday through Friday and there is no real customer service contact. I called my bank to cancel payment, but the order had not shown up yet. When I reviewed my email bill, I noticed that I had given them an incorrect card expiration date, which might be my saving grace. Anyway, calling the bank in the morning. Don’t bother with this company/product.
