People who "hate" cats try and live with one for one full week. ... We would probably (most definitely) lie and say that I hated cats just so we could have a cat for the week.

Can you guess what will happen when these humans spend a whole week with those adorable furry animals?

Love. Unexpected love. Which is always the best kind of love.

Dogs are silly animals who tend to do a lot of weird things that make you stop and ask yourself, "what the heck is that dog doing?"

Well, the kind team of Jaw-Dropping Facts has put together this video that may help you better understand your favorite furry friend. And if not, we just have to accept that some doggo traits will always remain a mystery to us. 

Otherwise, you might learn something you didn't even know! For example, whenever a dog yawns, you would assume they're sleepy, right? We sure would. However, according to this video, dogs tend to yawn when they are feeling anxious, such as being in a new environment, or being around other dogs they do not know. Yawning is often seen in puppies when they're surrounded by other pups. 

Pretty interesting!

Strange Collective Nouns For Groups Of Animals

Ever find yourself not knowing the group noun for an animal? Happens to us nearly every day it seems. And while a majority of group names do have a basic underline understanding as to why they were named that... some names don't hold that obvious clarity. 

Actually some group names leave us feeling completely baffled. And some just seem like missed opportunities! Six years ago, there was a petition to change the group noun of Squid, which is Shoal, into the clearly superior option -- Squad. Seems like the petition worked

A group of bats is called either colony, camp, or our personal favorite -- cloud. There's so much to learn every day!

Facts About Everyone's Favorite Gentle Giants

Elephants may just be the most incredible animals on Earth. Not only are they intelligent, but they have such a range for emotional capacity.

Elephants are not only deep-feeling animals, they are the only species on Earth with their unique characteristics, not a single other animal shares a similar physique. 

And here's another wild fact for you -- elephants purr just like cats! Sure they communicate though trumpet sounds and such, but they also produce rumbles so low that the human ears don't pick up on it. 

There are just so many reasons why elephants are amazing but for now, we'll let you dive into some awesome facts about them!

New Study Reveals Grey Reef Sharks Form Long-Lasting 'Friendships'

Sharks who form long-lasting friendships with one another? That's actually really cute.

According to a team of scientists, in Florida, they have recently discovered that grey reef sharks form long-lasting relationships with one another. Yannis Papastamatiou, a member of the team studying this phenomenon, said "We don't think of sharks as social animals, but they do have social groups."

The grey reef sharks are large-eyed sharks who roam the Pacific and Indian ocean. They are known to be aggressive nocturnal predators but it turns out they have a soft side when it comes to other grey reef sharks.

People Who Spotted Cats In Random Places And Items (25 Pics)

Others, however, really do look like cats! Enough to make you do a double-or triple-take. 

Keep your eyes out, in the real world, folks! We want more of these "cat" sightings!

It's weird to think there are creatures and animals on this Earth that we may have never seen before. But honestly, it's sso very likely that you don't know all the living on this mysterious planet. There's no way to really know because some creatures (such as in the deep blue ocean) have YET to be discovered! 

So, the idea of there being living things we haven't seen before isn't so far fetched. Yet, it's always surprising when you see a land animal for the first time. We've never heard of a humphead parrotfish or a worm-eating giant snail before. Amazing how much there is to learn and to see, it's never-ending.

Another older gem of a video. When this giant bear walks up to where a man is sitting, the last thing you would think it would do is sit peacefully beside the man, and enjoy the view. 

That's exactly what happened. Really makes you wonder if sometimes, bears don't want to deal with you just as much as we don't want to accidentally stumble upon them. Maybe, they just want to take in the view, too. 

We will say, however, we are slightly disappointed the bear didn't sit in the empty chair beside him. Oh well! Can't win them all!

If Aliens Were To Reconstruct Animals Based On Bones

These are brilliant! People have started to create a new meme template that involves animals, bones, and aliens. What a wonderful combo! The first image is the skull (or skeleton) of an animal, the second image is how aliens would reconstruct this animal based on the bones provided, and the third image is the reveal of the real animal behind... err.. outside of the skeleton. 

And it really makes you think if we didn't know how these animals originally looked like, and simply reconstructed them based solely on their bone structure... then what did the dinosaurs actually look like?

Some of the skulls of our favorite furry animals have been reconstructed into terrifying and unimagine alien-y looking creatures. And while these aliens may very good at perceiving size.. it just goes to show you really can't reveal the truth of an animal's appearance based on bones. 

Is it possible that dinosaurs were cuter than we could possibly imagine? Who knows. All we do know is, according to these images below, we can't be sure of anything.
