RVF is a viral disease which is serious in both animals and humans, and which leads to high rates of mortality. Sheep and goats are among the species affected by the disease. Sheep in particular are susceptible to the virus. Outbreaks occur in sub-Saharan and North Africa . The disease is spread among animals by biting mosquitoes. Humans can become infected through the bite of a mosquito or through contact with the blood or bodily fluids of infected animals.

The muscles that control ear wiggling are the Auriculares muscles that surround the outer ear (the part we can see). Aside from once being able to impress your friends on the schoolyard, they've never been much use to you.

Apparently, scientists found out that the bacteria that thrive in arsenic have VIRTUALLY NOTHING IN COMMON with ALL known living beings !!! If that is true then it has either ET origin –or- life on earth had, at least, two different beginnings !!!
