If two people are facing each other and talking and one points to a spot behind the other (not part of the conversation), that person know there is something there.

The ability to "follow a point", that is, to know it means "there is something over there", is rare in the animal kingdom. What is the only other animal that can "follow a point"?

I didn't know they were the only animal. I would have thought apes could, too, but I knew from telling my own dogs to get me a beer by pointing to the refrigerator

What's the fastest animal? Who knows that off-hand? And I mean all the animals, so nobody say the Cheetah

Oh yeah, baby. The peregrine falcon. 200 mph in a dive.
I had one take out a bird in my lilac bushes as I was walking past not five feet from me. It knocked it right on the driveway, pounced on it, then took off with it. Pretty cool.
