DAY 5: Parrot digestion, animal intelligence and baboon gods

The halfway point

Week 1 may nearly be over, but we have the evictions to look forward to next week! The power is in the hands of the 5,000+ students.

Today’s highlights in the Animal Behaviour Zone:

  • Parrot digestion:

How long does a parrot take to digest its food?

  • Measuring animal intelligence:

What kind of animal has the hardest intelligence to find out about?

  • And baboon gods…

cookiemonster76 : what is the most interesting thing you have found out about baboon speech?

suzanneharvey : the most interesting fact is a tough question! not strictly science based, but i think i was most surprised to find out that ancient egyptians had 4 baboon gods and thought their language was more complex than ours and that’s why it’s hard to understand! it amazes me that there were people trying to understand baboons thousands of years ago just like i am now
