Were mystery 8ft prairie pyramids built by GOPHERS? Small furry animals ...
Pedegru's insight:

After spending decades puzzling over the origin of Mima mounds, scientists have suggested that pocket gophers may be the mystery architects of the 8-foot-tall, 30-foot-wife dirt pyramids.

Mima mounds - massive, grass-covered round or oval earth pimples - were first discovered in 1841 in Western Washington state in a 630-acre prairie.

In the 19th century, explorers came up with a theory that the mounds dating back thousands of years are ancient Native American burial sites - but no human remains were ever found inside the loosely packed structures.

The New Brunswick SPCA has seized 143 animals from a home in Fredericton, a menagerie that included everything from dogs and cats to potbellied pigs and chinchillas.

It is the biggest seizure of animals in the province this year.

Executive director Hilary Howes said it could be a case of animal hoarding.

He expects charges of neglect will be laid.

The SPCA applied for an entry warrant on Tuesday after receiving an anonymous complaint.

Pedegru's insight:

WELD COUNTY - When Jim Docheff gets up, the temperatures are way down.

He runs the Blue Sky Dairy and is usually out working with the animals at 5:00 each morning making sure they do not fall victim to the cold.

"It gets below zero and that starts to wear on you," Docheff said.

At the Blue Sky Dairy in south Weld County, Docheff has about 1,000 head of heifers and milk cows. He and his workers do the simple things to help the animals weather the cold.

Pedegru's insight:

 “There was a time when Rebecca, our eldest, was desperate to have a pet,” David Clough told me when we met at the American Academy of Religion conference, held in Baltimore before Thanksgiving. “And she was in the unhappy position of having a father who had reflected ethically on the question at some length” — a father with misgivings about the human use of animals, even for companionship.

10 videos of animals reacting to their reflections

Animals that "pass" the mirror test — chimpanzees, dolphins and elephants, to name a few — typically rely on vision as their primary sense.
Pedegru's insight:
Scientists often use mirrors to test animals' self-awareness, but most animals that see their reflection in a mirror don't realize what they're seeing is themselves. When conducting a mirror test, a colored dot or other marking is made on an animal in a place it wouldn’t normally see, such as between the eyes. The animal is then provided with a mirror, and if it realizes the dot is on its own face and tries to remove it, it illustrates that the creature is aware of its reflection. Animals that don't make this connection often attempt to interact with their reflection, which you may have witnessed if you have a pet.
