Lactation hormone in birds

Postby Pajarita » Sun Feb 11, 2018 11:00 am

This is an article about scientists finding that the so-called 'lactation' hormone which one could now state that it was not named correctly as it's older than mammals and found in birds, too. What they found is that is not only a hormone that makes a mammal produce milk for their young but that it started out as a hormone that makes animals take good care of their babies and that it continues to act that way to this day in birds. SUPER INTERESTING!!!!
