   Well evolution is over with and we now move on to animal behavior. Learning about animal behavior will open your eyes as to why certain animals behave and do the things they do. Everything around you from the ant colonies below your feet, the Robin singing in the morning to wake you up or you falling asleep at night and waking in the morning can all be tied to certain animal behaviors. It really is fascinating to learn about the different studies that have have shown these behaviors in action, like Pavlov and his dog's drool at the sound of the bell.

   We will have a short quiz on animal behavior this Friday.
