Numerology And Your Pet

Surprising as it may sound, Numerology does affect your relationship with those around you and pets are not an exception. After all, a pet compatible to your number can be your best friend!

We bring astrologist and numerologist, Rajeev Khattar to delve into the number game and reveal, which pet suits your number the most…

How to calculate your number?
Total of the digits of your birth date determines your birth number. For example if a person is born on 11th October, he will be governed by number 11 and number 2 (1+1 = 2 ).

Number 1
People born on dates including 1, 10, 19 or 28 are ruled by number 1 and the sun.People with number 1 are known to be determined and disciplined by nature. A dog suits their temperament the most because dogs are also known to be disciplined and alert like them. Amongst the many breeds of dogs, German Shepherd will be the best companion for people with Number 1.

Number 2
People born on dates including 2, 11, 20 or 29 are governed by number 2 and are ruled by Moon.
Just like moon changes its phases, people with number 2 are notorious for their changing moods. For them, the soft and sensitive Pomeranian dogs are the best. Since people with this number get depressed easily, having white pigeons as pets will give them the required peace of mind.

Number 3
People born on dates including 3, 12, 21or 30 of any month are governed by number 3 and are ruled by the planet Jupiter.Jupiter is the largest of all the planets in Indian astrology and keeping small chirping birds as pets will greatly benefit them. Chirping of the birds will keep their moods and mind in perfect working order.

Hippopotamus On Menu At Beijing Zoo

Visitors to Beijing zoo are warned not to feed the animals, but they are encouraged to eat them at a restaurant that offers crocodile and scorpion on its exotic menu.After watching the beasts in their cages, diners at the zoo’s restaurant can gnaw on the webbed toes of a hippopotamus, chew a kangaroo tail, nibble a deer’s penis or slurp down a bowl of ant soup.

The sale of the dishes has caused outrage since it was reported by the Legal Daily newspaper earlier this week, with conservationists condemning the practice.

“It is utterly inappropriate for a zoo to sell such items,” said Ge Rui of the International Fund for Animal Welfare. “One of the zoo’s missions is to foster love of animals and a desire to protect them. But by selling the meat of caged beasts, this zoo stimulates consumption and increases pressure on the animals in the wild. It is socially irresponsible.”Chang Jiwen, a legal expert at the China Academy of Social Sciences who is trying to draft an animal protection law, said: “Although it is legal, I don’t think it is humanitarian. It is very inappropriate and immoral of them to sell such products. It is against the aim of the zoo.”

Rare 'Alligator Snapping Turtle' Caught In Chinese Lake

A fisherman in China was surprised after catching this striking creature, which looks like a cross between a turtle and a dinosaur. The man discovered the alligator snapping turtle, which is not native to the country, in Weishan Lake, in southern China’s Anhui province.

The species is only native to North America and was probably someone’s pet before being dumped in the lake, the local fishing department said. The creature’s alien status meant that it could have posed a danger to the local ecological system, they added.
Fisherman Sun Yongcheng said he was surprised when he netted the alligator turtle, which measures 76cm long and 30cm wide and weighs 7kg.

Governments must act decisively to prevent the extinction of tigers in Southeast Asia’s Greater Mekong region, where numbers have plunged more than 70 percent in 12 years, the WWF said Tuesday.The wild tiger population across Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam has dropped from an estimated 1,200 in 1998 — the last Year of the Tiger — to around 350 today, according to the conservation group.The report was released ahead of a landmark three-day conference on tiger conservation which opens Wednesday in the Thai resort town of Hua Hin, with ministers from 13 Asian tiger range countries attending.

It said the regional decline was reflected in the global wild tiger population, which is at an all-time low of 3,200, down from an estimated 20,000 in the 1980s and 100,000 a century ago.”Today, wild tiger populations are at a crisis point,” the WWF said, ahead of the start of the Year of the Tiger on February 14, according to the Chinese lunar calendar.

Acupuncture For Dogs

333413-2355-48

Acupuncture has been used by humans for several ages. The art of acupuncture originated in Chinese civilization as a form of holistic medicine. Acupuncture mainly aims at treating ailments by balancing the energies in body. The working principle of acupuncture is such that fine needles are inserted on certain pressure points or acupuncture points on the body, along the energy meridian, to stimulate the flow of energy. This method treats disease by directing renewed energy towards the affected body part, thereby curing it. This principle also applies to acupuncture in animals. However, acupuncture in dogs is most popular, as most dog illnesses can be cured by acupuncture. Also read history of acupuncture.

Acupuncture for Dogs

Dogs benefit a great deal from the treatment of acupuncture. It is now recognized as a valid treatment in veterinarian care, by the American Veterinarian Medical Association and the World Health Organization. To determine if the condition of dog can be improved using acupuncture, a physical examination by a qualified veterinarian is required. Also, the acupuncture practitioner may want to know about your dog’s medical history. Depending upon this information, a decision is made, if the dog can undergo acupuncture treatment or not.

Scientists Hail Hobbie-J As 'Cleverest Rat'

rat_1395989c

Hobbie-J, named after a Chinese cartoon character, can remember objects for three times longer than other rats and is better at finding its way through mazes.The rat, when it was an embryo, was injected with genetic material to boost the NR2B gene which controls memory.

The success brings hope for future dementia patients, as it is thought the gene enhancement could one day be used in a drug treatment for human brain disorders.Dr Joe Z Tsien, who led the experiment at the Medical College of Georgia, said: “Hobbie-J can remember information for longer. It’s the equivalent of me giving you a telephone number and somehow you remembering it for an hour.

“Our study provides a solid basis for the rationale that the NR2B gene is critical to enhancing memory. That gene could be used for memory-enhancing drugs.”Dr Tsien undertook a similar experiment on a mouse named Doogie 10 years ago, but thie latest trial shows that memory enhancement can work on different types of mammals, potentially paving the way for human use.

What's A Takin?

2

We here at ZooBorns have been waiting for great shots of a baby takin to share with you for quite some time and we are happy to say that the LA Zoo has delivered! On July 3rd they welcomed a baby female takin, a type of goat-antelope, like the serow we featured last week. The takin share their mountainous habitat with the giant panda and both are protected by the Chinese government.

A first for the L.A. Zoo is the birth of a female Sichuan takin, born on July 3, 2009! Though takin may look like a combination of various animals: the snout of a moose, horns of a cow, tail of a bear, body of a buffalo and a mountain goat’s feet and agility, takins actually belong to a group of animals called goat-antelope. This group also includes domestic sheep and goats.

In China takin share a mountain habitat with the giant panda, which has proven beneficial for the takin’s preservation. Pandas are an “umbrella species,” which means that protecting panda habitats also safeguards the other animals that share their habitats. Like the panda, the takin is considered a treasure in its native land and is protected by the Chinese government. The newest addition to the Zoo’s takin herd is wandering the exhibit with its parents!
