Amazing Animals

Working together, showing off, winning awards … it's not a new reality show—it's more amazing animals:

  • It isn't just human teenage boys who show off when girls are around, as proved by zebra finches
  • We know that elephants never forget, but they also have such great teamwork skills that they could host your office's next Dale Carnegie seminar. 
  • Maybe protective parents should go back to calling themselves "mother hens"  in lieu of "mama grizzlies."
  • Which "throwaway" thoroughbred racehorse is now a Guinness World Record holder for intelligence? (Hint: It's not Mr. Ed.) 
  • Maybe the appropriately named bird "Wisdom" should get a Guinness record as well.
