Dogs may have earned the title "man's best friend" because of how good they are at interacting with people. Those social skills may be present shortly after birth rather than learned, a new study by University of Arizona researchers suggests. Published today in the journal Current Biology, the study also finds that genetics may help explain why some dogs perform better than others on social tasks such as following pointing gestures. #puppies #pets https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2021/06/210603111935.htm

More than 2,000 Matamata turtles were rescued by Colombian officials who stopped the illegal shipment and identified the animals using a rapid DNA test. The interesting-looking turtles were returned to the Orinoco river basin.1 The DNA test is instant, simple, portable, and accurate in IDing species. It helps get the animals back into their natural habitat more quickly. The Matamata turtle is a native South American species with a knobby shell, ridged neck, and a long, snorkel-like snout.2 Although it is illegal to trade the turtles in Colombia, the distinctive animals are popular with traffickers who whisk them off to the U.S., Europe, and Asia where they can legally be sold for hundreds of dollars. #illegaltrade #wildlife https://www.treehugger.com/dna-test-saves-thousands-bizarre-matamata-turtles-5187194
