I don't know about you guys, but i am constantly fascinated by all the cool, unique things animals can do. Like the magician cone snail, which has a venom that is 1000 times as strong as morphine and is non-addictive. There's a pod of killer whales off the coast on South Africa that is the only known predator to great white sharks. They learned to turn the sharks upside down, which releases a whole lotta serotonin and temporarily immobilizes the shark, making it easy prey. And prairie dogs, which have the most complex communicative system in non-human species that we know of. Here's a really cool video about it:

What other super cool things do animals do?

ed: i don't know how to embed a video. Any help would be appreciated!

This is so cool! I'd heard about it ages ago, but never saw a video.

All that jump-yipping made me smile so hard.

Thank you FootFace!
I just can't wait for scientists to start studying the communication of other species. I would be pretty surprised if we didn't discover really complex systems in most species.
