    [–] The vascular system inside a horse’s hoof CatPooedInMyShoe 13 points ago in interestingasfuck

    Properly installed, horseshoes don’t hurt. There’s like an inch or two of keratin layered on top of those blood vessels.

    No idea. I don’t know anything about horses really. But I got the pic from here; I’m sure it has lots of information.

    Dogs can be trained to scent many biological processes, including certain cancers, so they decided to try to train this one to detect pregnancy. No contact with actual polar bears was required, just their poop.

    It’s for zoos. Polar bears can have a thing called pseudopregnancy where they appear to be pregnant, gain weight etc (250 lbs!) But aren’t really. So zoos want to know if their bear is REALLY expecting.

    I didn’t know whether I should add the “silly jobs” flair to this post or not but decided that given the current perilous state of polar bears as a species, detecting pregnancies is an important occupation and not at all silly.

    As for Elvis, it’s long been suspected that dogs can detect pregnancy in their owners. They can detect many other conditions, including certain cancers, by smell. A zoo trying to do a polar bear breeding program got the idea, and Elvis’s job was born.
