  • Primate hanging from a rope. Caption: how our distant ape cousins watch and learn.

    Copying what others do is a familiar human trait. With support from the National Science Foundation, primatologist Marietta Dindo is researching how this copycat trait is shared by our primate cousins, specifically orangutans at Zoo Atlanta. When Dindo offered a novel way to open a box to get a snack, orangutans copied the behavior almost 100% of the time, and then passed it onto the others. This is how traditions are adopted among human populations. Dindo's study provides evidence that this copycat behavior runs deep within the primate family tree.

    Provides an overview of all the stages to ensure a kitten grows up to become a happy, healthy, and much-loved addition to a family. Cats have an extra sense organ, and they can actually "taste" smell. In relation to their body size, cats have the largest eyes of any mammal. The cat's grace and beauty have inspired artists since ancient times. By Victorian times they became pampered pets. Cats are loving and affectionate but have an independent character that guarantees them a special place in the hearts of their caregivers. NOTE: Bonus material follows main feature.
