The Kid Should See This

Wet animals shake in slow motion

According to the research, “a wet animal could spend 20% or more of it’s daily food energy to evaporate water in its fur, if it cannot shake.” Therefore, it’s super important to get dry! Earth Unplugged‘s Sam and Simon slow down this phenomenon of mammals shaking to get dry — super slow-mo style — in this sixth episode by BBC Earth Productions.
