A ship? Or a spider?
Spiders can "sail" across waters, using wind and their limbs to control where they go. Spiders can even use their silk as an anchor, releasing the silk to slow down their movement. Awesome.
Crows can wait for bigger rewards
The marshmallow task is a classic psychological paradigm (often tested on children) - would you rather have one marshmallow now - or wait and receive two marshmallows later?
Researchers examined whether crows and ravens, known for their intelligence and patience, would rather eat a treat now, or wait a period of time and exchange the treat for a more preferred food item. Their patience depended on the value of the treat, but the clever corvids showed that they exhibit a good amount of self-control. The results have just been published in the journal Animal Behaviour and you can read a summary here.
