Cats,big and small are instinctual hunters. Without practicing or being instructed, they know how to move silently, stalk, and pounce on prey.

Article3 First snake found in amber is a baby from the age of the dinosaurs
In this article a baby snake is found in amber and its the first snake ever found from 100 million years ago
Around 100 million years ago, a baby snake hatched on a tropical island in the Indian Ocean. The tiny snake, just 10 centimetres long, got stuck in resin oozing from a tree. That chunk of resin remained buried as the island drifted north and became part of what is now Myanmar. When it was finally dug up a few years ago, the skeletal remains were misidentified as a centipede and the amber sold to a private collector. But It has now been studied by an international team, who have scanned the amber to build up a 3D image of the skeleton. “The baby is unquestionably a snake,” says team member Michael Caldwell of the University of Alberta, Canada, a palaeontologist who specialises in studying ancient snakes and lizards. This would make it the first ever snake found in amber.
