CHILL OUT

Wild - - DID YOU KNOW... -

Can you imag­ine if a chip­munk flipped out ev­ery time a car drove by? It wouldn’t last very long in the city, would it? Ur­ban wildlife re­lease less stress hor­mones like cor­ti­sol (CORE-te-zol) when they’re taken by sur­prise or threat­ened. Sci­en­tists still don’t know why, but it may be be­cause they have fewer predators in the city.
