10 Most Dangerous Cat Breeds That're Still Awww

Cats are one of the most popular pets in the world. And they can be just as playful, cuddly, and friendly as their canine counterparts! Are you a cat person? Are you considering getting one? Well, you probably should leave the following 10 dangerous cat breeds off your list of potential candidates. TIMESTAMPS: Pallas’s cat 0:58 The Savannah 2:14 The Chausie 3:40 The Jungle cat 443 The Abyssinian 5:43 The British Shorthair 6:52 The Maine Coon 7:51 The Mekong Bobtail 8:48 The Siamese 9:43 The Bobcat 10:55 Music: https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music SUMMARY: - The distinct trait of Pallas’s cat is its un-cat-like round eyes and pupils. The important question is: can you tame this kitty? The short answer is: no. - The Savannah is a crossbreed between the African Serval and your common domestic house cat. It has a long neck, body, and legs with dark-brown to black spots all over its coat. - Also known as the “Nile cat,” this breed is a cross between an Abyssinian domestic cat and a Jungle cat. Its wild ancestor, the Jungle cat, is the very one that the ancient Egyptians worshipped! - The Jungle cat's scientific name is Felis chaus, but it also goes by the “Swamp Lynx,” Swamp Cat,” or “Reed Cat.” While the name would have you think otherwise, this cat does not live in the jungle but rather in wetlands with dense vegetation. - The Aby is one of the oldest domesticated cat breeds. Believed to originate from Abyssinia, which is modern-day Ethiopia, most experts nowadays site Egypt as the breed’s place of origin. - If you’re familiar with the Cheshire Cat in Alice in Wonderland or Puss in Boots in Shrek, then you’ve definitely met some of the on-screen representations of the British Shorthair. This breed can weigh up to 20 pounds and lives up to about 20 years. - The Maine Coon is a large breed that can weigh up to 20 pounds or more. It also received celebrity status as “Mrs. Norris” in the Harry Potter movies. - The Mekong Bobtail can weigh up to 10 pounds and has a lifespan of up to 18 years. And, of course, we can’t forget to mention this breed’s most unique feature: its tiny little bobbed tail! - The Siamese is the most talkative and opinionated cat out there! It demands to be entertained and showered with attention 24/7. It can be pretty cautious around strangers and outright naughty when left alone at home! - Known as Lnyx rufus in the scientific community, the Bobcat is a nocturnal animal with a natural habitat in the wild. Yet some people are brave (or silly) enough to make them pets.

18 Animals Lost to Extinction

The West Black African Rhino was hunted to extinction in 2011, and the last passenger pigeon died in 1914, check out these 18 Animals lost to Extinction. West Black African Rhino -- Weighing up to 2900 pounds (1300 kg), poachers hunted the animal for its horns which some cultures believe contain medicinal properties … although that has never been scientifically proven. The last West African Black Rhino was seen in 2006 in Cameroon. In 2011, it was declared officially extinct. Javan Tiger -- Native to the Indonesian island of Java, these cats resembled the Sumatran Tigers. They were once so numerous that locals considered them pests. That was in the 1800s. By the 1950s, only 20 of these animals survived. Encroachment on its habitat and agricultural development diminished the Javan Tiger’s numbers. Round Island Burrowing Boa -- It was once found burrowing on Round Island, off the coast of Mauritius (mar-rish-us) … you may recall that the Dodo also hailed from there, too. This snake was also found on other islands in the region. As its population dwindled, it could only be found on Round Island after 1949. Non-native species of goats and rabbits destroyed vegetation after being introduced to the island, eradicating the boa’s habitat. The snake was last seen in 1975. Po-ouli (pow-ooley) -- Also known as a Black-Faced Honeycreeper, this animal native to Maui was discovered in the 1970s. But by 1997 only 3 known survivors remained. Efforts were made to mate the remaining birds, but those efforts failed. By 2004 the specially was formally declared extinct. What happened? Disease, predators and loss of habitat are blamed as reasons for the bird’s extinction. Quagga (kwa-gaa) -- This animal was native to South Africa. As you might have guessed, they were actually a subspecies of the common plains zebra. Hunters coveted the animal for its brownish, partly striped hide which inspired some to call it a ‘horse tiger’. Hunting, along with competition from livestock for grazing land, led to the Quagga’s demise. The last of its kind died in the Amsterdam Zoo in 1883. Tecopa (tek-cope-ah) Pupfish -- A fish living in the desert? The Tecopa Pupfish called the Mojave Desert its home, and was known to survive in water temperatures up to 108 (42c) degrees fahrenheit. But the animal’s habitat was spoiled after development in the mid-20th century and the Pupfish was extinct by 1970. http://www.petermaas.nl/extinct/speciesinfo/tecopapupfish.htm Madeiran (mad-aaron) Large White Butterfly -- This beautiful butterfly was native to the Laurisilva (lora silva) forest valleys on Portugal's Madeira (mad-day-ra) Islands. Pollution from agricultural fertilizers and construction leading to loss of habitat are major reasons for the species’ eradication. The Large White Butterfly, a close relative is still commonly found across Africa, Asia and Europe. Bubal (bew-bal) Hartebeest -- Also known as the Bubal Antelope, Ancient Egyptians once used this animal for sacrificial purposes. It called North Africa home and was a common sight there. But European hunters steadily wiped out these beasts for sport and food. The last Bubal Hartebeest was a female and died in 1923 at the Paris Zoo. You can see her picture here. Caribbean Monk Seal -- These seals had been aggressively hunted for their meat, fur and oil. It started with European explorers in the late 15th century, and the tradition was later continued by whalers and fishermen. The seals’ traditional habitats in the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea were ravaged by coastal development and fishing operations, which also hastened their demise. The Caribbean Monk Seal was last seen in the early 1950s and declared extinct in 2008. Pyrenean (peer-un-eon) Ibex -- The Ibex (or ee-bex) was once found throughout the Spanish, French and Andorran (and-door-un) Pyrenees (peer-un-nees). The population was decimated by hunting and the species went extinct in 2000. But in 2009, scientists used DNA from preserved skin samples and actually cloned a female Pyrenean Ibex! Unfortunately, the clone died from lung defects shortly after birth. What are some extinct animal species you’d like to see brought back to life? Leave a comment below!

True Pyramids Purpose Has Been Finally Discovered

Many researchers thought that the Egyptian tombs were constructed to highlight the majesty pharaohs. And that's what we studied at school. Yeah, past tense! Brace yourselves, folks, because it looks as if scientists have finally discovered the true purpose of the pyramids! It seems these unique structures might have had a function that was a far cry from burying the dead... TIMESTAMPS: How the Great Pyramid of Giza is different from any other traditional tombs 1:22 Could the ancient Egyptians have had technologies as advanced as the modern ones? 2:57 The Great Pyramid's mysteries 4:20 What about the “sarcophagi”? 6:34 “The Queen's Chamber” beneath the Great Pyramid 7:27 What was the gold capstone at the top of the Great Pyramid used for 9:46 Could ancient Egyptians us wireless energy for communication purposes? 10:45 #greatpyramid #pyramidofgiza Music: https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music SUMMARY: - The Great Pyramid of Giza was made with over 2 million stone blocks, each weighing from 3 to 30 tons. Actually, the most gigantic ones can be as heavy as 50 tons! The base of the Great Pyramid covers an area of 592,000 square feet, and each of its sides is about 218,000 square feet in size. - If you let go of the stereotype that ancient civilizations were less developed than we are today, a question arises: could the ancient Egyptians have had technologies as advanced as the modern ones? What if their knowledge was lost only to be rediscovered centuries later? - Interestingly enough, the Egyptians also used a special material, dolomite, on the inner sides of the pyramid. This mineral is known to multiply electrical conductivity. - Modern technology still can't recreate the gypsum-based mortar that was used during the construction of the pyramids. This kind of gypsum withstands huge amounts of pressure. So this may sound bizarre, but the mortar holding them together is, in fact, stronger than the blocks of the pyramid themselves. - In 1993, an inaccessible secret room was uncovered beneath the Great Pyramid. This room, which seemed to be deliberately concealed, was dubbed “The Queen's Chamber”. In 2011, thanks to more developed technologies, it became possible to explore the room with the help of a remote camera. - At the top of the Great Pyramid of Giza, there used to be a capstone made entirely of gold. It forwarded a path to transfer negative ions (those are atoms with an electrical charge) to the ionosphere (the layer of the earth’s atmosphere that contains a ton of said atoms). And that’s how an electric current of immense power was produced! - Another weird thing you can see in such carvings is what clearly looks like a wireless antenna. Perhaps the ancient Egyptians used wireless energy for communication purposes? They very well could’ve used electricity at weaving plants to manufacture yarn.

SUMMARY
-Hares are typically faster and larger than rabbits. Their ears and strong hind legs are also longer, and they have bigger feet.
-Butterflies have club-shaped antennae that look like a thin shaft with a bulbous tip. As for moths, their antennae are either serrated or feathery.
-You will notice that sheep hold them down whereas the tails of goats proudly stay up.
-Like all rodents, porcupines have big front teeth. As for hedgehogs, their snouts and teeth are pointy, and they are omnivores, feasting on insects, frogs, plants, and fruit.
-Mature llamas are much larger than alpacas, whose weight typically varies between 100 lb and 170 lb. As for an adult llama, it can weigh as much as 400 lb.
-Crocodiles are the lucky owners of special glands, which they use to excrete excess salt. As for alligators, their salt glands aren't so well developed. That's why they mostly live in fresh water.
-Sea lions' flippers are larger and covered with skin. Seals have a thinly webbed flipper, and each small toe has a claw. Seals prefer solitude, and sea lions love gathering in big companies and hanging out with friends.
-Bees are hairy: they need this feature to dip into flowers to collect pollen. Also, their rear legs are flat. Bees look more stocky.
-The skin of most frogs is smooth, while a toad’s skin is thick and bumpy. Frogs' legs are long and slender, and their eyes are big and bulging.
-Most dolphins have pointy faces, curved dorsal fins, and slender bodies. Porpoises have triangular back fins, robust bodies, and rounded faces.
-Turtles have webbed feet as they live mostly in water, and this makes swimming easier. Also, their shells are lighter and flatter.
-You can find jaguars in Central and South America and sometimes in the southwest of the USA. As for leopards, they dwell in Asia and Africa. Jaguars have smaller spots. Leopards are more slender and a bit smaller than jaguars.
