Obviously, humans aren't the only animals that sing. Birds do it, killer whales do it, and if you happen to work in construction and are really lucky, you might just see a frog do it.

There's no way another animal does that, right? Well, we know of at least one. Whale songs become "hits" that can spread halfway around the globe. All the males in a humpback whale population usually sing just one song at any given time.
But once they get bored of that song, an innovator in the group will start singing a new one. Sometimes, this new song contains elements of the previous song combined with some new stuff, kind of like when the Fat Boys and Chubby Checker worked together on " The Twist.
But that's just a bunch of whales in a group imitating each other. That's not like the mass media pop culture humans have, right? Except scientists have found out that a song doesn't stay limited to just one population. A catchy enough tune will actually spread all over the Pacific, from Australia to French Polynesia, thousands of miles, over a couple of years.

Surprisingly, when it comes to playtime, human kids and chimpanzees are actually more alike than you think. Researchers from Bates College and Harvard University found that young female chimps would take sticks, bark, small logs and vines, and not only cradle them as if they were baby chimps themselves, but also use their imagination for the whole doll-owning experience.
Getty The stick was later taken by the CPS. When playing with their doll-sticksthe young females would cuddle with them, put them to bed and rest with them in their nests like a little girl sleeping with her plush toy for security.
A few times, the little dolls even got the equivalent of their own Barbie dream houses, as the chimp girls would build separate nests just for them to pretend-live in.
And during the day, the chimp girls would also walk around with their sticks tucked between their stomachs and their thighs, mimicking the way that mother chimpanzees carry their babies. Continue Reading Below Advertisement All this behavior, which was witnessed over a hundred times during 14 years, was not just limited to girl chimps.
One young male chimp was seen using a stick to play "airplane," resting on his back and holding the stick up with his hands and feet, the way that many parents play with their young children. In another instancea male chimp was seen with his own stick dolly after he saw his mom was pregnant, pretending to care for it.
There were no reports on whether his chimp father went out and worriedly fashioned him some chimpanzee G. Joes to get him interested in "man stuff.Jaguar Escapes, Kills 6 Animals At Zoo - New Orleans, LA - The zoo said an investigation will be conducted into how the animal escaped.
