The Nixon-Peace sign is used as a symbol for peace in Australia, and as a national symbol, according to the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.In its official definition of the sign, the OCHA defines the symbol as a flag or banner with a cross and a vertical line across it.The OCHA describes the sign as an "icon of peace" that "is displayed on every corner of Austra...
Posted November 07, 2018 03:23:20 Hamster peace walkers are a new breed for Australia.
The colourful, feathered creatures can travel on the backs of their mothers and can even be trained to fight other hamsters.
Now, scientists have created a video of the walkers to give people the chance to see the creatures in action.
“We really like the idea of the animal being an animal and being able to interact with its surroundings,” Dr Peter Jones, a research associate from the Australian National University, said.
Dr Jones said it was the first time he had ever seen a video from a hamster’s perspective.
He said the video was created by an Australian university in conjunction with Hamster Research Institute, which is a research group in the Department of Zoology and Aquatic Sciences.
“The video was captured by a young male hamster, and it is based on footage from his mother, who was born in a separate species,” Dr Jones told news.com-au.
“So it was quite an unexpected thing for us.”
The video features two male hamsters sitting in a cage, one of which is wearing a white face mask.
One of the male hamsts is holding a small, white flag, while the other is wearing the Hamster Walkers’ Hat, a black hat that has a red star on it.
The male hamstings head is tilted towards the male who is holding the flag.
The female hamster is sitting in the opposite cage, wearing a red and white mask.
The two males hold the Hamsters Walkers Hat in their hands, while holding the Hammers Walkers Head in their mouths.
Dr Jason Henshaw, a Hamster Science student, said the Hamsts’ Walkers are very similar to their mother, and they are very active and playful.
“They are very much like their mothers, which means they will spend lots of time outside of their cages, so they are in the same social group as the other two,” Dr Henshaws said.
“I think this is an interesting animal, because it shows that the two species are actually very similar in terms of behaviour.”
The Hamsters have been in Australia for several years now, and Dr Jones has been documenting the species in his spare time.
Dr Hentshaw said he found it a bit frustrating seeing the hamsters being treated like pets and having to live in a huge cage.
“There is a bit of frustration in seeing animals that are in a large cage, and having them all on a small piece of paper with no interaction with people,” he said.
Hamsters can also be trained for different jobs.
Dr James Wills, a veterinary surgeon at St Vincent’s Hospital, said he had seen a lot of animal cruelty cases involving animals, and he found that many of the animals being bred were not suitable for being used for scientific research.
“It seems to me that this animal is going to be bred to be a pet, and the only way it can be used for that is if they are used as a pet,” Dr Wills said.
One animal in particular he is interested in breeding is a rabbit.
Dr Widsley said he has seen the videos of the hamster walkers in the past, and that he believes that this particular animal is a great candidate to be used as research material.
“What I think we are looking at is a species that is going into the wild, where it has been bred in captivity,” Dr John Wills told newscom.com and View.
“Its going to have to be very specialised to be suited for that environment.”
Dr Jones says he has been working with the Hamters’ Walkings since he was a graduate student at the University of Queensland in 2008.
He says that it was only recently that he became interested in studying the species.
“At that time, I was looking at the video clips of the two male animals and the female animals, trying to see how that looked from the other side,” Dr Darrin Jones, Hamsters research associate, said, adding that it took about 10 years for him to get the footage he wanted.
“He [Hamsters Research Institute] had been involved with other species in the Hamsters’ Walk series, and was very much in the loop when it came to other species and where they were breeding and the animals were being used.”
