Paris zoo unveils the blob, an organism with no brain but 720 sexes - Reuters



A Paris zoo showcased a mysterious new organism on Wednesday, dubbed the “blob”, a yellowish unicellular small living being which looks like a fungus but acts like an animal.

This newest exhibit of the Paris Zoological Park, which goes on display to the public on Saturday, has no mouth, no stomach, no eyes, yet it can detect food and digest it.

The blob also has almost 720 sexes, can move without legs or wings and heals itself in two minutes if cut in half.

“The blob is a living being which belongs to one of nature’s mysteries”, said Bruno David, director of the Paris Museum of Natural History, of which the Zoological Park is part.

“It surprises us because it has no brain but is able to learn (...) and if you merge two blobs, the one that has learned will transmit its knowledge to the other,” David added.

Gone to Greener Pastures: Do Horses Experience Grief? | Farm Animal Cognition

A new paper reports on the responses of feral horses to dying or dead conspecifics, indicating that grief might be more widespread in the animal kingdom than previously thought.

Why Sheep Matter: They're Intelligent, Emotional, and Unique | Psychology Today

Sheep do care about their own lives and how they are treated and respond to similar situations in similar ways to humans. Nothing we’ve learned about sheep gives us a free pass to mistreat them based on myths about their “mindlessness.” They are intelligent, complex, and feeling individuals.

Seeing Friends Disappointed Bums Us Out. The Same Might Be True for Ravens | NOVA | PBS

Seeing someone else suffer a big disappointment can have a pretty damaging effect on your own morale. That’s definitely the case with people—and it might be true for ravens, too.



New research suggests that, like humans and many other mammals, common ravens (Corvus corax) can read and internalize the emotional states of others. In the study, published today in the journal PNAS, ravens watch their friends grapple with a frustrating task in which they’re denied a tasty treat. Though the onlookers aren’t deprived of anything, they then seem to mirror their partners’ discontent, and start behaving pessimistically themselves.

Have you herd? It turns out cows have feelings, too. - CSMonitor.com

A particularly “mechanistic view of animals” has prevailed throughout the West, says Emory University primatologist Frans de Waal. “And I think we are basically abandoning that view, and that has obvious moral implications.”



Professor de Waal’s bestseller published in March, “Mama’s Last Hug: Animal Emotions and What They Tell Us about Ourselves,” argues directly for the existence of animal emotions, and for animals’ humane treatment.



“That’s a very old obsession in the West – and in our religion of course – that we have souls and animals don’t have souls,” says Professor de Waal. “There’s many people who accept evolutionary theory, but they always make an exception for the human mind.”

Animal Consciousness: New Report Puts All Doubts to Sleep | Psychology Today

"Convergent evidence indicates that non-human animals have the neuroanatomical, neurochemical, and neurophysiological substrates of conscious states along with the capacity to exhibit intentional behaviors. Consequently, the weight of evidence indicates that humans are not unique in possessing the neurological substrates that generate consciousness. Non-human animals, including all mammals and birds, and many other creatures, including octopuses, also possess these neurological substrates.">

… which is why I call them #nonhuman persons.

Stray Dog Joins Climbers On Dangerous Trek, Gets to the Top with Them, Sets Dog World Record


Bild/Foto

#Dogs are still cool.

New York Post:

A #stray-dog tagged along with a team of #mountaineers, following them up to the top of the 23,389-foot #peak in #Nepal’s #Himalayas – a first in the #canine world.

#Mera, a 45-pound Nepalese #mutt thought to be a cross between a #Tibetan #mastiff and a #Himalayan #sheepdog, became the #first #dog ever to reach the #summit of #Baruntse on Nov. 9 last year, according to Outside magazine.

#BilliBierling of the Himalayan Database, an organization that #documents climbing #expeditions in Nepal, told the #magazine that #Mera’s feat could be the #highest-recorded #elevation ever reached by a #dog anywhere in the #world.

“I am not aware of a dog actually summiting an expedition peak in Nepal,” Bierling said.
Mera didn’t have any #training to prepare her for the expedition, but that didn’t stop her from tagging along to #keep her new #friends #safe.


The four-legged #climber had joined a team led by #mountain #guide #DonWargowsky of #Seattle on the tenth day of their strenuous month-long #expedition to the peak.

The mountaineers were descending from a successful summit of #MeraPeak when the #dog – who they had seen a few days earlier – decided to join them at 17,500 feet.

At first it seemed like the expedition members only tolerated #Mera because of #Wargowsky’s taking to her, but the #pooch quickly #impressed the team with her impressive #climbing #skills, according to the mag.

“They’d never seen anything like this happen. They said she was a special dog, that she brought #luck to the expedition,” Wargowsky told the outlet. “Some even thought she was #blessed.”

At one point, however, Wargowsky said Mera spent two nights at one camp out in the open, alone on the #glacier in the #bitter #cold.

“I was certain she was going to die up there,” he said.

But the dog #prevailed, and trailed along with the team as they worked their way up to 22,500-feet before going back to the base camp.

“Imagine that instead of crampons, you have claws,” Wargowsky said. “Her feet were bloodied. She had busted knuckles and broken toenails. It was hard to see.”

During the trek, Wargowsky had tied Mera up at camp so she couldn’t follow them back up the mountain, but the canine chewed through the #rope, catching up with the team less than a half-hour later.

“She just tucked in right behind me,” Wargowsky told the magazine. “And it’s not like I could leave the clients to take her back, so it meant she was going with us.”

There was a close call along the way.

Mera was ahead of Wargowsky when she started to #slip, and a quick-thinking Wargowsky #hung onto a fixed line on the #mountain with one hand and #grabbed #Mera with the other as he #prevented her from #falling 600-feet, according to the magazine.

But that didn’t stop the dog from continuing on with the team.
Nothing will really stop dogs from continuing on with us.

Our #relationship with them may not look very necessary today, but it certainly was #necessary in the #past. #Dogs would keep #guard at #night and let us know if another tribe was about to #attack, they’d detect #intruders, they’d help us #hunt, and they’d even help us #fight.

They #served us well, and we should #return the #favor by #treating them #fairly now that most of their services are no longer required by most people.

You never now when you may need them again.

The #comfort of #modernity may not last forever.




If you have a #canine #companion close to you, maybe #pet them for a bit while you tell them the #tale of #Mera setting a dog #world-record.

Or better yet, #high-five them.
