4:46 pm
dry. a mouse, he rotates his body faster than the eye can see, nearly 30 times a second trying to repel water. an average-sized dog on the other hand, he'd have to shake just five times per second to get just as dry. why exactly to animals shake in the first place? because water particles cling to their fur. to get rid of the water, they have to start gyrating. >> this is the same principle that a washing machine works. imagine you're a drop on one of these clothes. there's a centrifugal force that tends to pull you out. these dogs work on the same principle. they have to choose a speed that's high enough to get rid of the drops. >> what is the point? researchers say they hope their discoveries make people appreciate how animals have learned to adapt. >> i hope at least as a team we can come up with some really neat design for either a washing machine or something else we haven't thought of. >> progress from the science of a soaked pooch. >> and i'd like to know how much
