I know the answer is probably similar, but would dogs “reading” commands written on cards just be operant conditioning combined with the clever hans effect? A cool trick, but not very impressive from a scientific perspective?
It’s the same, but you’d have less success with using symbols with a dog. They have poor eyesight and vision isn’t one of their main sights.

You are truly the embodiment of the fact that getting popular on tumblr just makes being on the website so much worse. I’m so sorry that everyone with a poorly formed opinion and too much gumption has decided to set up shop in your asks.
Dumb people are always gonna try being the loudest, internet or no internet.

For the bee tick tock, I don’t think it’s supposed to be the research itself that’s interesting in that story (cuz yeah it’s not really that interesting) but instead the story of how they had to go about proving it, and all the increasingly absurd steps they had to take, that makes the story funny.
And yeah the wording could be misinterpreted but I don’t think many people who see it are coming out thinking that bees think about time in hours, but rather that they can tell that time has passed. But I could be wrong, I can’t read people’s minds through the internet.
That’s....that’s literally the research... you can’t say “the research isn’t interesting but the [main part of research] is interesting” like what

TW: Animal Abuse, Animal Neglect, Animals Kept in Subpar Conditions
So, there’s a ‘zoo’ hiring near me. It’s part-time and it would be feeding and poop-scooping. Which is cool. I wouldn’t be working with the tigers, which is cool because I want to rub their bellies more than I have sense.
For the record, I am pro-zoo. Zoos do amazing things. I am pro-animal ambassador. I am not for roadside zoos because they generally don’t know what the heck they’re doing. I’m not entirely against exotic pets, provided they’re receiving proper care. I do think there’s a difference between an animal ambassador who don’t really interact with the public and letting random people handle a tiger cub or monkey.
I’ve had a bad feeling about the ‘zoo’ since it opened. Roadside zoos generally aren’t good. I wanted to give them the benefit of the doubt. But I looked at their Facebook and they do enrichment for their animals. They’re building new exhibits. And then I scroll more.
I knew they had done tiger encounters when their tigers were cubs. Apparently, they continued once their tigers got bigger. They no longer do them, I believe, now that the tigers are full-grown. The whole tiger encounter thing hits me weird. Tigers aren’t a house cat and people here aren’t very bright.
Then I saw where the owner took one of the monkeys kayaking. That hit very wrong. The monkey had a harness, but nothing that would help it float if things went pear-shaped. My dislike of it is my own opinion. I feel like this isn’t the same as Shedd Aquarium taking the penguins on field trips. The penguins weren’t in danger.
So I did a Google search. Holy poop. The owner’s license to own tigers is in his ex’s name. Kids have been bitten by the animals. One of the monkeys had a fractured tail and had to have part of its tail amputated. It’s said his adult tiger had an abscesses tooth so he and his friends pulled it with pliers.

So this sounds pretty bad, right? And then I went to peta. I know peta is a bag of crap, but I was curious what they had to say. Their site has reports from USDA agents who inspected the facility. And pictures. The peta article was in 2020? I think? It was recent. The article in the link has a link for the peta one.
I’m not trying to slam them. I just needed to get out of my system what I saw. I know there’s people who love going to this place. It looks good on Facebook. But, considering the article in the link was in February of this year, I’m really not holding my breath that it’s on the up-and-up. I guess what I’m trying to say is I would love the job because I would love something at a zoo, but this place would make my blood pressure go through the roof.
