So you think you're special? You think that just because people have built giant cities, invented pop-up toasters and put a person on the Moon that they are somehow different from other living things? Well it's time to think again!
HUMANIMALshows the inextricable interconnections of the human and animal worlds in ways you never before imagined... Inside you will discover how slime moulds can solve how to navigate through a maze; how rats tickle and laugh out loud; how elephants have funerals for their lost loved ones; how bees vote in elections to decide where to locate their nests; how crows use cars to crack nuts and a whole lot more! This oversized, richly illustrated, mesmerizing exploration shows that humans and other animals don't just live on the same planet, they also share many of the same patterns of behavior, making us all fellow players in the drama that is life on Earth.

Rescuing Tweety or Helping Bugs Feel Better
BEFORE Veterinary Help is Available
OCTOBER 22nd, 2018…Two new books and online classes have been unveiled by Denise Fleck, the Pet Safety Crusader™, to help you help your smaller family members in the event of injury or illness and BEFORE you can get to veterinary care! “Basic Bird First Aid” and “First Aid Basics for Rabbits and Pocket Pets” provide the 4-1-1 you need to know should you share your life with or care for a bird, rabbit, guinea pig, hamster, gerbil, mouse or rat. The books and classes teach you how to check vitals and provide an overview into the care and basic needs for each species as well as susceptibilities to illness or injury. In addition to the books, the author has recorded two instructional webinars to help you grasp these basic skills at your own pace. After successful completion of a multiple choice and true/false exam, you will receive a certificate stating you have completed the training.
“Over the years, I have had scores of students use lessons learned in my classes to save an animal in need, and that is the best reward. Up until now that has been mostly dogs and cats, so I want to make sure humans also know how to care for our feathered as well as our tiniest furry best friends,” Fleck explains.
And besides helping pet parents, Fleck want to make sure pet sitters are true professionals continuing to up their education with certificate courses. “I also offer trainings in Dog & Cat First Aid, Senior Pet Care and Pet Disaster Preparedness because as cliché as it may sound, if you fail to plan, you plan to fail, and I feel it is so important that pet parents and sitters can react confidently using whatever is available at arm’s length. That could include improvising a splint, muzzle, bandage or pet transport, so being able to think on your feet comes with non-stop learning,” Fleck professes.
Having personally taught close to 20,000 humans and millions more on national TV, Fleck’s mission is to help YOU make a difference in the life of an animal through her books and courses. Denise has appeared widely on radio & TV (The Doctors, CNN Headline News, Animal Planet, Kirstie Alley's Big Life and had a weekly segment on KTLA in Los Angeles for several years), has written for pet publications/blogs and authored a dozen books. In 2018, she was named one of Pet Age Magazine's "Women of Influence," Voyage Atlanta Magazine’s “Most Inspiring Story” and won two special awards from the Cat Writers Association. With a soft spot for our older best friends, Denise serves as the President of the Grey Muzzle Organization (aiding senior dogs) and on the boards of both the Emma Zen Foundation (pet oxygen masks) and Thankful Paws (educating on proper procedures for establishing pet food banks).
Topics covered in “First Aid Basics for Rabbits & Pocket Pets” and “Basic Bird First Aid” include:
ü Attacks by Another Animals
ü Bleeding (including Blood Feathers)
ü Bone & Back Injuries
ü Breathing Difficulties & CPR
ü Dehydration & Diarrhea
ü Egg Straining
ü G.I. Stasis
ü Regurgitation vs Vomiting
Both books are available in living color on Amazon while you can learn more about and register for the online classes at www.PetSafetyCrusader.com/products/classes/

A couple of long-disused buildings in the Florida Keys that once sheltered servicemen from missile launches have been sheltering something else – pythons.
Four large crawlers – one, a female, was nearly 16 feet long – turned up within the last month at an old missile base at Crocodile Lake National Wildlife Refuge (NWR), the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) reported.
Scientists think the snakes migrated from the Everglades, a fertile breeding ground for the unwanted predators. Now, officials say, the snakes may be poised to head south, where several Keys species are defenseless against the large, invasive reptiles.
Compounding their concerns: Officials this past summer also discovered some hatchling pythons near Key Largo – a strong indication that the snakes have found a welcome habitat and are multiplying.
The latest unwanted snakes turned up in a couple of old bunkers where the U.S. military once had a Nike Hercules missile firing range. The site, closed 30 years ago, is now part of the 6,500-acre Crocodile Lake refuge. Searchers using trackers and specially trained dogs sniffed out the snakes, said Jeremy Dixon, who manages Crocodile Lake.
“Snakes like deep, dark places,” he said.
They also like black rats, which likely attracted them to the site, Dixon said. The area also is home to hundreds of feral cats, another potential food source.
The easy availability of food, said Dixon, means the pythons could thrive on the Keys just as easily as they have multiplied in the Everglades. For more than two decades, an array of big snakes have spread and bred in the Everglades. Their presence has had a devastating effect on native birds, deer and other species in the park. Some snakes have even managed to devour alligators.
The Florida Wildlife Fish and Wildlife Commission is working with the University of Florida to detect and remove the snakes in the Keys. They are partnering with the Irulas, members of a tribal community from India that’s renowned for its ability to catch snakes. Learn more about those programs.
If you need to report a python, dial the Exotic Species Reporting Hotline: 888-Ive-Got1 (888-483-4681).
