The first one is about mating, but make it more general.
I ran across a story in www.boston.com/dailynews/ about peacocks. It seems that the males have to hang around in gangs for the females to be attracted. In these gangs, several peacocks are brothers. The less attractive ones are just there to make a big group. This apparently helps the mating, more handsome, brother pass on his DNA. Original story in Nature(one author is Marion Petrie, also Paul Sherman), if someone wishes to look for it.
You may add a link to your favorite Cecil critter column, we’ll review those too.I’d like to stay away from cats and dogs, just so it doesn’t become a “my pet did this” topic.
