Fast-dry­ing Doggy!

Reader's Digest (India) - - Rd Pets -

When you come out of the shower it takes a few min­utes to dry your­self with a towel. Dogs get rid of 70% of the wa­ter in their fur in four sec­onds! Re­searchers at the Ge­or­gia In­sti­tute of Tech­nol­ogy, USA, have es­tab­lished a con­nec­tion be­tween the size of the an­i­mal and the speed at which it shakes it­self dry. Small crea­tures (mice, rats) shake faster in or­der to gen­er­ate the cen­trifu­gal force nec­es­sary to re­pel wa­ter from their fur.
