We know how horses have awesome manes that easily flow with the wind once they gallop. They are so gorgeous that they have better locks than most people. But out of all the horses, none is as magnificent and beautiful as Turkmenistan’s Akhal-Teke breed.

The Akhal-Teke is a national emblem of Turkmenistan known for its intelligence, endurance, speed and, of course – the metallic sheen on its coat that gives them a mythical appeal. Because of their shiny coat, they have been given the nickname, “Golden Horses.”

Aside from their intelligence, speed and endurance, the Akhal-Teke is best known for the metallic sheen of its coat.

Look at that form.

The Akhal-Teke’s coat appears to be reflecting the light and that is because their hair follicle structures are different from other horses. The core of each hair strand is not as opaque as the other horses’. Each hair strand instead has a transparent portion that captures more light.

Because of the breed’s hair follicle structure, they look this magnificent in pictures.

Look at that lustrous coat.

The Akhal-Teke horse breed is undoubtedly stunning but it is also a rare breed. In 2012, the last count on the breed has been done and there were about 6,600 of them on Earth. Most of them can be found in Russia and Turkmenistan.

Have you ever felt that you've experienced something before or that you've already been to a place that you just visited for the first time? Don't worry. Most of us have experienced this phenomenon called déjà vu. Why or how this occurs have completely baffled us for years now. However, thanks to a brain scan, we know now what's really happening.

Apparently, déjà vu is a sign of our brain checking its memory.

Studying déjà vu is challenging, thanks to its fleeting and erratic nature. However, a team of scientists led by Akira O'Connor conducted déjà vu research at the University of St. Andrews in the United Kingdom and they suggested that the previous notion that déjà vu is the result of the brain's effort to create false memories is, well, false. To find out the mystery behind the phenomenon, the research team had to develop a way to trigger a déjà vu experience in the laboratory.

What a funny sight!

Dogs do adorable stuff - and we sure love them for it. They are incredibly smart, plus they know how to respond to instructions and human emotions and all that. However, they also do stupid things like going berserk during bath time, chewing on shoes and pillows, and running away from the vacuum cleaner as if it was a zombie coming for their brains. Either way, they are always there to make us laugh.

Now, there is this one dog named Pandora who inadvertently gave her dog parents a good chuckle. It was a normal day for Pandora - she was out in the backyard, digging like she always did when she was called back in. When she walked back into the house, her owner, Lucas Alves Magalhães, was in for a surprise. His eyes almost popped out when he saw what she was holding in her mouth.

What Pandora discovered was not a box full of misfortunes, in fact, it's something relatively harmless.
