Different perspectives on animals

English

Animals have been interesting for many people in the world. There are many jobs related around them, but there are no specific academic disciplines only about animals. However, there are disciplines you can find that can contribute to the knowledge about the wild life.

 

The benefitial see-through frog

The overall purpose of breeding to create a see-through frog was done in order to benefit students, and the organisms themselves. Often, frogs are used for visual labs in schools, colleges, etc. Therefore scientists wanted to create a frog that could be used as a model without being dissected in order to observe its organs, blood vessels, and structure. By breeding two recessive colored frogs by artificial insemination, F2 generation offsprings of the Rapa Japonica frog, created an entirely translucent variation of the species.

A Shift in Focus

A growing issue in today’s society is the vast amount of stray animals on the streets. Many of these animals are victims of abuse and of irresponsible ownership. They have been neglected and abandoned, which begs the support of the community to help find a solution to this issue. A way to do so is to place more focus on academic disciplines such as psychology, economics, and law.

The zoo of death

English

Zoos have been and are still one of the most entertaining places to bring your children to. Most of us probably went to one at least once during their childhood. I’ve been to one and I wish I understood the truth about them. Zoos might be entertaining to us, but it is only a prison for animals. It will never compare to their real and natural habitat that we took them from.
