THE WET DOG SHAKE: PHYSICS REVEALED


http://news.discovery.com/animals/wet-dog-shake-physics.html

SCIENTISTS FINALLY KNOW WHY THAT “WET DOGGY SHAKE” IS SO DAMN EFFECTIVE!  IT GENERATES UP TO 20 G’S OF DRYING POWER.  (Go ahead and try this at home especially if you’re a “larger animal with looser skin” say scientists)

In an attempt to design better appliances, physicists have turned to nature in order to learn the secrets of how animals shake themselves dry. Using sophisticated technology, researchers have determined the science behind the process and why it is so successful for mammals of varying sizes. While ‘the shake’ is particularly potent for larger animals, which have looser skin, the study revealed that tiny creatures using the same technique can generate up to 20 g’s of force to accomplish the drying feat. 

“Straight, oily hair with sharp tips is optimal for water shedding. Having just the right fur, skin and movements are very important, since shaking oneself dry in the wild is a life or death matter.  When it counts, rely on the Bulldog Shake (watch TIME WARP BULLDOG SHAKE video below)  http://dsc.discovery.com/videos/time-warp-bulldog-shake.html
