Good News Fridays: Saving Baby Animals With The Milk Lab


Every mammal species on planet Earth relies on milk for their young babies to survive.  Mammal’s milk has a ton of nutrients and other stuff needed for life.  But, every mammal has their own version of that special milk.  At the National Zoo in Washington, D.C., one team of scientists is dedicated to studying all there is to know about the white gold. Working with specially trained mammals, these experts collect samples of milk from various species of animals to learn more about the origins of life. With samples spanning over 180 species, the lab is working on uncovering the many secrets of evolution while also creating milk formulas for baby animals that cannot be naturally reared by their own mothers.
