You can hardly resist the kindness of animals such as squirrel tail monkeys taking bananas, dancing frogs to erotic …
Did you know that even the editors of arid science journals can hardly resist the lovable and adorable charm of jumping frogs or penguins playing with robots.
Too interested in these animals, the editors at Livescience recently shared a list of cute and intelligent animals below.
1. Squirrel-tailed monkey knows how to get bananas by watching instruction
Have you ever thought that squirrel-tailed monkeys living in the wild can soak up puzzle lessons through educational TV programs?
This seemingly absurd thing is quite possible and proven by a number of experiments with monkeys in Brazil. Using a mini cinema (consisting of a computer screen in a cardboard box set in a tree), the researchers found that the marmoset can learn to open containers and pick up bananas very easily after watching the tutorial. video.
The video below will help you better understand how these monkeys are reaping the rewards.
2. Dumbo octopus moves by fins
Researchers have collected surprising marine life in the Gulf of Mexico during a National Oceangraphic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) expedition.
The highlight of this trip is the rare video of Dumbo octopus using its fins to spiral in a spiral path.
This octopus is known as Dumbo because of the fin that resembles the ears of the elephant Dumbo in Disney cartoons. They live in areas close to the ocean floor, at a depth of about 3000 to 3900 m.
The Dumbo octopus is a small animal about 8 inches long with a pair of fins attached to the top of the head. The fins are the primary means of their movement. According to experts, Dumbo octopus often swim near the ocean floor to find food sources for small sea creatures like sea worms, snails …
3. The frogs dance to “erotic”
According to expert American biologists, up to 14 species of Micrixalus frogs have been discovered this year in western India. This tiny amphibian is around 13-35mm in length, found in a mountain range stretching 1,600 km from north to south India.
The common feature of these 14 new species of frogs is that only male frogs perform the “chiropractic dance” during mating season: forelimbs and hindquarters are held firmly to the rock surface near streams and limbs. limb, incorporates “rotating stones” towards the back and retracts.
The above “kick limb” behavior is repeated, while the palate gives a constant cry to attract females. Larger male frogs will have a more powerful and engaging rock-chi dance.
4. Spiders jump 8 eyes launch each other 25 times their body length
Currently, the jumping spider family (Salticidae) is the largest family of spiders in the world with over 5,000 species, living mainly in the tropics. Among arthropods, jumping spiders are known for their excellent foresight.
They have eight eyes in total, four of which are located at the head and the other four are located at the highest points of the body.
Besides their great foresight ability, we cannot help but mention the ability associated with their name – dance. Jumping spiders can perform self-propelled steps of about 25 times their body length.
The peculiarity of these spiders is that even though they are not spiders, they can still produce silk threads to mark the territory and protect the eggs.
5. The shy “Flying Monkey”
Scientists from South America have discovered 5 new species of Saki monkeys, bringing the total number of Saki monkeys discovered to 16 species. The Saki or “flying monkey” has a long, dense tail and is known as the shy monkey in the vast Amazon forests.
Despite its unsightly appearance – round head, thick hair on the face and head, the Saki monkey has the ability to move smoothly from branch to branch as if flying.
Not only that, these flying monkeys also emit a lot of sounds, deep voices, sometimes siren-like cries – tearing apart the calm, surveillance-oriented atmosphere and threatening the appearance of researchers. Zoology.
6. Robot penguins
How can humans infiltrate the mighty Legion of Penguins? The answer is to use spy bots. And more than that, these robots are also “delighted” to transform into baby penguins. This is how a team of scientists approached the emperor penguins in Antarctica.
This famous animal, not easy to approach, suddenly turned out to be quite easy to accept with “intruders”. The penguins actually let the robot penguin get close enough to read the names on their ID cards, and some even chatted with the robot penguin.
