Boiling Point 1st Augst 2017 Bettongs, ravens and upside-down fish

What do bettongs, ravens, and upside-down fish have in common?

  1. Boiling Point 1st Aug 2017


They were all on Boiling Point tonight!

Alex explored some fishy concepts, finding apparently both humans and fish have problems recognising upside-down faces

And Charlotte found ravens (a corvid) are capable of planning for the future as well as a 4-yr old child!

News from UNSW science this week revealed a little exposure to a bad thing is well, a good thing with small mammals being exposed to predators having a higher survival rate than non exposed counterparts.
