Cicadas are a superfamily of winged #insects that live mostly underground and emerge at intervals of one, 13, or 17 years. There are over 3,000 species living around the world, but the most well-studied are those belonging to the genus Magicicada, which includes seven species of periodical cicadas common in eastern North America. The long-lived arthropods are stout, green or brown in color, with red eyes and transparent wings. They're known for their deafening songs and the golden skins they cast on trees. That some species are at risk of extinction due to climate change makes cicada education and conservation increasingly important. #cicadas #biodiversity https://www.treehugger.com/cicada-facts-5120497

To the surprise of no dog owner anywhere, a new study finds that dogs get jealous. You may know the feeling when you’re out on a walk and stop to pet another pooch. Your dog may bark or whine, or even come in between you and the offending canine. New research published in the journal Psychological Science finds that dogs exhibit these types of jealous behaviors even when they only imagine their owner is interacting with another dog.1  In the case of this study, the perceived rival was an artificial dog. #dogs #behavior #emotions https://www.treehugger.com/dog-gets-jealous-imagining-you-with-another-canine-5176457
