3 Different Ways to Breathe

A gif I just found in my inbox, showing the different ways that humans, birds and grasshoppers breathe. I can remember loving my comparative Biology and Physiology unit at University, studying about diving mechanisms and reproduction. Oddly, I don’t like animal biology, but I do when it’s in comparison to humans! So this gif is right up my street!

Isn’t it amazing just how different those three animals are?

What did dogs teach humans about diabetes? – Duncan C. Ferguson | TED-Ed.

I was directed to this website for an amazing collection of element videos, but I wanted to have a look around at their other lessons and then stumbled on to one about Dogs and Diabetes. The video is less than 4 minutes long, subtitled and really interesting for anyone looking at the history of diabetes, insulin or even animal testing. From Ancient Egyptians to Man’s Best Friend… What did dogs teach humans about diabetes? And did they benefit at all from it?
