    It's not new, but the significance of that early knowledge hasn't sunk in. Basically, plants can learn and make choices.

    They are very different. One is rooted and the other is mobile. One you can eat part of it and it grows back. The other is not so fortunate.

    The story of the octopus mother dying after her young hatched was touching. The Meerkats show animals teaching and learning.

    I had not seen narwhals before either. The technique of using drone cameras seems to be useful. So there are unicorns in the sea!

    Didn´t know they were so small. I wonder why they didn´t turn the same colour as the hand.
