Traveling with one's pet can be an arduous task, but often dog, cat and bird
owners just can't leave home without them. So the issue becomes
how to scout out pet-friendly accommodations in advance of travel to be
assured there will be 'room at the inn' when you

universities published its 10-year study that determined the largest

A two-and-a-half inch wasp was recently

What may be already be recognized by most dairy farmers has now been put to the scientific test by a Dutch zoologist at the University of Groningen. Studying black and white Holstein Friesian cows as they developed from calf to cow, Kees van Reenen
put together a group of traits he called 'temperament' and followed the
traits to see the effects of their impact on the animals' health. But,
it is important to note that in this study, 'health' is defined by how
much milk each cow produces.
