The weaver and the widow

Almost all of weaverbirds and 68 species live in Africa. Only few of them live in South Asia, Madagascar and southern Arabia. Many of them are similar to sparrows, but painted bright and colorful. Perhaps, none of the birds had not mastered this art of weaving nests, as weaverbirds. It is “weaving”, even knitting a specific pattern. Fiber, picked at random from plants, bird several times passes via the fingers into a loop and then takes the bill to the end of the “rope” and firmly tighten the loop.

This disease is called “fever dog”, although she was exposed to all mammals, including humans. Although in natural conditions are more often ill with leptospirosis of agricultural animals and rodents, “bad name” dogs was due to its extremely high susceptibility to leptospirosis.

What animals to have in the apartment?
