Total scaredy cat
A cat that is so scared of the outdoors now receives house visits from the vet.
William, a Persian Chinchilla, will only go as far as putting one paw out of the door before darting back inside. After having to sedate William on two separate occasions to get him into his travel basket to go to his vet, the vet has resorted to house visits to treat him, reports pet insurance provider PetPlan.
Bears do do it in the woods
Belgian researchers are examining the excrement of giant pandas to try to understand how they can digest tough bamboo, hoping for clues on how to develop new generations of biofuel.
According to a report from Reuters, the genetic make-up of endangered pandas is that of a carnivore but the animals have adapted to a diet consisting almost exclusively of bamboo.
The results of the study may point to new, cheaper, ways to produce so-called second generation biofuels made from plants and biomass.
Six-year-old panda Xing Hui and his female partner, Hao Hao, paid little attention to the scientists collecting their droppings, instead soaking up the sun and chewing through the first stems of their daily 10kg (22lb) portion of bamboo.
