Goats Are Able To Understand Human Facial Expressions

According to a recent study, goats are more intelligent than people previously thought. Goats have the ability to understand human expressions. They can tell the difference between unhappy faces and smiling ones and are attracted to the latter. 

Pretty wild, huh? 

How was the study conducted, you might ask. Researchers went to a goat sanctuary, and they showed goats a pair of photos — one with a happy face and the other with an angry expression. They were surprised to find that ALL the goats were drawn to the happy face. 

Honestly, the fact that Goats like you more when you're happy sounds like a good enough reason to smile.

The story of the limping mother and her 5 kittens continues! This time, their human savior, Walter Santi, took mama to go get spayed, but when they returned home (in the same day), something unusual happened. The kittens didn't recognize their mom! When she returned from the clinic, her scent must have really confused them -- they stayed away from her for the whole night!

Thankfully, it didn't last long as they were cuddling with mama come morning time. 

The suspenseful music really had our hearts in anticipation!

Inside the Mind of a Dog. 

Gregory Berns spent his entire life around dogs. So when his most beloved pet passed away, he began to wonder whether his dog reciprocated the same love and care he felt for him. As a neuroscientist at Emory University, he took his curiosity to the test. Now, he scans the brains of dogs using MRI machines, trying to decode canine behavior using brain activity. Learn some more about his fascinating work at the video below.
