Sea otters hold hands when they sleep to keep from drifting apart.



Although each adult and independent juvenile forages alone, sea otters tend to rest together in single-sex groups called rafts. A raft typically contains 10 to 100 animals, with male rafts are larger than female ones. The largest raft ever seen contained over 2000 sea otters. To keep from drifting out to sea when resting and eating, sea otters may wrap themselves in kelp or hold hands.

Cows have best friends.



In a famous study, cattle were penned on their own, with their best friend or with another cow they did not know for 30 minutes and their heart rates were measured at 15-second intervals.  The research showed cows were very social animals and often formed close bonds with friends in their herd.

When heifers have their preferred partner with them, their heart rate stress levels are reduced compared with if they were with a random individual.

A prison in Washington pairs up “death row” shelter cats with select inmates as part of a rehabilitation program. It seems to be a pretty wonderful thing for both the inmates and the cats.



Although it is usually prisoners that are supposed to be rehabilitated, this experiment at a Washington State prison introduced non-violent prisoners with violent felines who were going to be put down because of their behavior. The study proved to do wonders for the cats, who got so much love and attention their behavior completely changed, and they learned to trust humans again.

Blind people smile even though they’ve never seen anyone else smile.



Being blind doesn't mean you don't make all the facial expressions other people make, which goes to show that we are born with these abilities, and do not learn them from others by imitation.

Squirrels plant thousands of new trees each year simply by forgetting where they put their acorns.



To those who have ever asked themselves if squirrels play a part in our ecological system - here's your answer. Every animal has its place, and squirrels have been planting trees with their acorns for countless generations. Thank you Mr. Squirrel!

Macaques in Japan use coins to buy vending machine snacks.



It may sound unbelievable, but it's true. Macaques monkeys in Japan have learned not only to steal purses and wallets, but to actually use the coins to take out snacks from vending machines. Who was the Einstein ape that first discovered this? We may never know.
