This is actually pretty interesting. Leaving aside the creepy filters, and the way the cats look, some of these cats clearly understand what a mirror does. However, before you go thinking this shows they are self-aware (the mirror self-recognition test is often used as a proxy of this), remember that B. F. Skinner trained pigeons to use mirrors to locate objects they couldn’t see. HIs whole point was that this was merely a conditioned reflex, just like our self-awareness… Anyway, these cats may realise that the things they see in the mirror are behind them, without necessarily realising that the cat-shaped thing they see is them…

Finally, a fabulous fossil fly
Strashila incredibilis – a strange Jurassic insect. Long assumed to be an early flea, parasitising pterosaurs or feathered dinosaurs. Now thought to be a fly, the aquatic or amphibious adults shedding their wings after emergence and mating in the water #insectoftheday pic.twitter.com/ezQxHfkgpM
