io9 Bringing The Science Today

Just a quick note, but two fun and interesting science links from io9.  First, a look into why koalas have human (or human-like) fingerprints.  A good bit of info for the layman about convergent evolution.  Second is a look at dogs and other animals shaking water off themselves, and why they are so good at it.  With fun high-speed video!  io9 has quickly become my go-to site for sci-fi and comic book movie stuff as they have my preferred balance of spoiler to non-spoiler content.  I hope you enjoy these!
