Seeing Humanity In Farm Animals

Leave a comment

You can tell a lot about a person from their expressions. Perplexed eyebrows, pursed lips.  Animals are no different.  From raised noses to lowered heads, outward displays of emotion are not exclusive to humans. But perhaps that isn’t the message inked in these portraits taken by Ronan Yver.  Farm animals have their own stories. Their lives consist of more than rolling in the mud and grazing the fields. The perception of farm life cannot be taken at face value. You have to dig deeper for the truth under the skin.

For the Love of Animals

Linda and Gary Childs go almost everywhere with their “little girl.”  The retirees, from West Boylston, Mass., love to parade 3-year-old Chino down busy streets in her stroller. They take her to restaurants dressed in her fur-lined vest or polo hoodie where “she sits in her own chair, very polite.”  But their favorite place may be the seashore, where Chino wears sunglasses and one of her four beach dresses while lounging in a chair embroidered with her name.

Ancient Egyptian Mummies Often Not Actually Mummified Animals

Leave a comment

According to a new study, many animal mummies from ancient Egypt contain zero mummified animal. Cats are maybe not 100% pure unadulterated cat; ibises might be mud and some feathers. I’m sorry but the window for refunds has quite definitely closed.  That’s according to the BBC, reporting on findings by the Manchester Museum and the University of Manchester. In a pretty neato application of modern technology, they’ve been scanning a bunch of animal mummies they’ve got lying around. Around a third contain precisely zilch in the way of skeletons.
