Twitter Thread: User Explains Why Her Dog Suddenly Turned Green

Every once in a while, we find something in nature that we would absolutely love to study and read more information about. Like, when we found out the truth about fossils in the Appalachian mountains, or when we discovered that sometimes octopus punch fish for no reason whatsoever. We love discovering things about the animal world - when they're big things like that or... when our dog suddenly turns green, and we reaaally wanna know what in the heck happened. 

Thank goodness, that didn't happen to us. But, it did happen to @ExoStephO. And as an early Earth geochemist, she really did her research into this weird phenomenon. Of course, there's also the option that this dog is simply turning into some kind of superhero and will end up saving the world. But, what do we know?:

Tumblr Thread: The Gentle Giants Of The Horse World

If there is one animal that we believe does not get enough love, it's horses. Yeah, everyone knows what horses are, but does everyone know that horses are majestic galloping creatures of beauty? Do they know that horses get spooked by affectionate goats with pool noodles on their horns? Do people really know anything about horses other than people sit on them? We don't think so, so we think that it's time to learn.

We shall start with the most majestic galloping enormous horses of them all: draft horses. They are huge and gorgeous, they are the gentle giants of the horse world, and they are truly whinnying at life. And now, they're about to get the appreciation that they deserve.

But when they do earn it, when aloof cats finally warm up to their humans, there is nothing more satisfying.  

Learn what a cat's body language means, when and how they want you to pet them, and your relationship with it will improve faster than you thought possible. This tumblr thread is about to help you learn.
