  In this article it talks about how parents shouldn't worry about the amounts of borax in the children's toy, slime. Borax is a chemical that is used in slime making as an "Activator" to fully complete the slime recipe. Borax and other boron compounds are considered non-toxic at low levels and the average adult eats at least a milligram or two each day since borax is commonly found in many food items we eat. Adding on, even if we eat or consume borax, it does not accumulate in the body unlike heavy metals such as lead, you urinate it out within the same day you consumed it. Also, the only way to get sick by borax is to consume at least 5000mg or borax per day, thus unless the child consumes 5000mg of borax per a day, they should not get sick. Therefore the chemical, Borax, is not a true danger to children with slime.

  In this article, it talks about a new foldable grabber arm that, unlike suction or claw-like grabbers, Can capture even fragile sea creatures such as jelly fish and their relatives. This foldable grabber arm was made by Zhi Ern Teoh at Harvard University in Massachusetts, Zhi and his team made the foldable grabber arm to capture fragile sea life without damaging or harming them. With this new technology researchers can study sea life underwater and allow them to get more interesting results. The Harvard team is even trying to add additional hardware, such as 3D scanners and DNA swabs, to examine creatures whilst inside the foldable grabber. This new grabber arm can help researchers and scientists alike study and examine sea creatures in their natural habitat and avoid harming them.
Article 1
 
Why This Zoo Lion Killed a Lost Water Bird
 
      In this article a lioness kills a heron that came for water. Even though the lioness was raised in captivity.
 
Cats,big and small are instinctual hunters. Without practicing or being instructed, they know how to move silently, stalk, and pounce on prey.
 
Even domesticated cats hunt small animals like birds and rodents with these keen skills. This is why the lioness killed the heron because it was its instincts.Since the heron entered the lions exhibit, it triggered the lioness' instincts to kill.
 
Therefore, even captive or domestic cats are instinctual hunters.

      In this article I speak about understand Tracking Animals migration helps the animals.
 
Tracking the Animal during migration helps us how individuals and populations move within local areas and migrate across oceans and continents.Also, this information is being used to address environmental challenges.The information on the animals migration path or environment helps us stop climate and land-use changes, biodiversity loss, invasive species,
 
and the spread of infectious diseases.So, Tracking animal migration paths ,HELP US KEEP THEM SAFE, and stop the challenges that await them during there migrations.
