Animals Reacting To Musical Instruments

As amusing as this video is, the fact that when I started playing it my cat came and sat on my lap (and is helping me type this) adds to the enjoyment.
A variety of animals, a variety of instruments, a variety of reactions.

Smidge approves.

What Is The Difference Between Bees, Wasps, and Hornets? (via Today I Found Out)

This video from Today I Found Out is about the differences between bees, wasps, and hornets.
So, hornets are a type of wasp, and wasps can be either social or solitary.
And after their working life wasps spend their time waiting to die getting drunk.
Or something like that.
Watch the video.

Fifty Collective Nouns For Groups Of Animals (via Mental Floss)

It’s always fun to keep up with collective nouns for groups of different animals.
This article from Mental Floss has some I’d not heard of.
A walk of snails (or an escargatoire)
A coterie of prairie dogs.
A bale of turtles.
A wisdom of wombats.
Among others.
Some sound made up, but the ones I did know were legitimate, so I guess they’re all good.
Check out how many you knew.

This comedy sketch presents a faux nature documentary featuring Australia’s own white ibis, which has become an urban scavenger, the bin chicken.
