• The whiskers above the eyes and muz­zle and be­low your dog’s jaw have a spe­cial name – vib­ris­sae. These touch-sen­si­tive hairs can de­tect even the most minute changes in air­flow. Talk about sen­si­tive souls! • A cat can move at a top speed of about 49km/h over a short dis­tance. • Dogs use their swiv­el­ling ears like radar dishes and can lo­cate the source of a sound in 0,06 of a sec­ond. Beat that, Ace Ven­tura! • Hu­man brains are more bi­o­log­i­cally sim­i­lar to that of a cat than to that of a dog, as the re­gions re­spon­si­ble for emo­tions are iden­ti­cal.
