Jammers, it’s that artsy time of the week again that you’ve all been waiting for! Jammer Art is back and it’s bigger than ever! This week we’re featuring 5 incredible artists who did a great job at capturing big cats in action.
We’d like to thank the following Jammers for participating in this week’sJammer Art challenge:

While we’re on the topic of big cats, did you know that cheetahs, over many years, have evolved different adaptations that make them sprint much faster than the average big cat? A cheetah’s legs are actually longer than those of other big cats, and they have an elongated spine that increases the length of their stride. Sounds fast right???
What’s something AMAZING that you know about big cats?
See you in Jamaa!
As most of you know, pet monkeyshave returned to Jamaa! In honor of their return, we have a video of Dr. Brady Barr answering a Jammer’s question about how small the smallest monkey actually is! Click the videoand see for yourself!
Aren’t monkeys magnificent creatures!? Did you know the majority of monkey species dwell in tropical forests where they move on all fours? Monkeys are mainly active during the day, but sometimes they move together in groups while they search for food to eat.
The return of pet monkeys has caused quite the commotion in Jamaa! Jammers everywhere are taking theirpet monkeys on all kinds of adventures and monkeying around like never before! Have you taken your pet monkey to the Pets Only Party? It’s the perfect place to let your pet monkeys HANG out!
Also, don’t miss out on the Pet Stopin Appondale, it has special accessories just for your pets! Make sure you take your pet monkey there ASAP!!!
What monkey-filled adventures await you and your pet monkey???
Umm… I don’t have a pet monkey.
2. Dolphins are carnivores. Fish, squid and crustaceans are included in their list of prey. A 260-pound dolphin eats about 33 pounds of fish a day.
3. Known for their playful behavior, dolphins are highly intelligent. They are as smart as apes, and the evolution of their larger brains is surprisingly similar to humans.
4. Dolphins are part of the family of whales that includes orcas and pilot whales. Killer whales are actually dolphins.
5. Dolphins are very social, living in groups that hunt and even play together. Large pods of dolphins can have 1,000 members or more.
6. Depending on the species, gestation takes nine to 17 months. After birth, dolphins are surprisingly maternal. They have been observed nestling and cuddling their young.
7. A dolphin calf nurses for up to two years. Calves stay with the mothers anywhere from three to eight years.
8. Dolphins have acute eyesight both in and out of the water. They hear frequencies 10 times the upper limit of adult humans. Their sense of touch is well-developed, but they have no sense of smell.
9. Dolphins have few natural enemies. Humans are their main threat. Pollution, fishing and hunting mean some dolphin species have an uncertain future. In 2006, the Yangtze River dolphin was named functionally extinct.
10. Because dolphins are mammals, they need to come to the surface of the water to breathe. Unlike land mammals that breathe and eat through their mouths, dolphins have separate holes for each task. Dolphins eat through their mouths and breathe through their blowholes. This prevents the dolphin from sucking up water into the lungs when hunting, reducing the risk of drowning.
