Toygers and digging dinosaurs

Recently I added National Geographic News to my LJ feeds, thinking to inform myself a little bit more about the world from time to time. I’m so glad I did, because I get to find out all sorts of interesting things. For example, did you know that there’s a new breed of housecat called the toyger?

Isn’t he so velvety? And just so pretty. The article reports, “Toyger creator Judy Sudgen said she hopes the playful pets will inspire more people to care about wild tiger conservation.” 

Also, I learned that archaeologists have discovered a dino
saur that burrowed and took care of its young
. Not as pretty as the kitty, but still very interesting. My mind has been broadened today.

ETA: I forgot to add the link to the article about toygers that covers the pros and cons of creating a new breed.
