Get it? Because it's called the "candy-striped hermit crab" for the candy cane markings on its legs!

A new study focused on memory in cats. BBC sums it up like this:

Japanese scientists say cats are as good as dogs at certain memory tests, suggesting they may be just as smart.

A study - involving 49 domestic cats - shows felines can recall memories of pleasant experiences, such as eating a favourite snack.

We already know that dogs have memories like these and it's a big part of the way humans think. Now there is conclusive proof that cats are probably as smart as dogs. But you probably already knew that if you're a cat owner.

The skywalker gibbon is so rare that we've only just discovered it! He got his name because he walks high up in the trees (and also because the scientists who named him are Star Wars fans)

A veterinarian in South Africa delivered the pups via c-section and was shocked to find that they were attached to the same placenta, were the same gender, and had the exact same markings. Has this ever happened before? Maybe, but it's never been genetically confirmed until now.
