That’s why a Reddit community called “Awwducational” has started doing this thing. 

This amazing community was started back in November 2012 and it has become a sensation since then. This community has actually become a knowledge hub for people who are curious to know some interesting things about different animals. No matter whether it is a playful cow, cute possum, or giggling rat, you will find everything here.

So, what are you waiting for? Scroll down and soak yourself into some did-you-know facts.

One of those moderators told us that the title of this community i.e. “awww” refers to the amazing reactions of people. “‘Aww is in the eye of the beholder’ as we say,” he said.

He further added that “the educational component is what gets added in the comment section, where the user must provide a source for their fact in the title that is either peer-reviewed, from a highly reputable source or has citations from one of the above to back it up.”

u/AGreatWind also said that “we went from 50,000 subscribers to over 2 million. In that time, we have maintained a consistent approach to verification and civility.”

“We are rather large by subscriber count, but the community still feels small because of the interaction and cooperation we have with them. We try to engage with and listen to our subscribers rather than try to herd them, much as we did when there were only a few thousand.”

“So often someone in the comments has a remarkable insight about a post’s subject animal, be it cooperation amongst lab rats, newly discovered birds of paradise, or the hyoid mechanics of a snow leopard’s voice box. It’s fantastic!”

Neighbours is updating its opening titles to reflect the Pierce Greyson recast.

Digital Spy can give an exclusive first look at the new sequence in our video at the top of the page.

The tweaked titles see Don’s version of Pierce spending time outside the local café with his wife Chloe (April Rose Pengilly) and son Hendrix (Benny Turland).

This takes the place of a similar shot from the old titles, which saw Tim’s version of Pierce in the same scenario.

Neighbours fans in Australia will see the new titles later this week, while they air on UK screens in November.

The show announced Pierce’s recast in August after Tim had to bow out earlier than planned.

Due to changing regulations and travel restrictions in Australia amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Tim finished filming four weeks early and chose to fly back to Sydney to be with his wife ahead of the birth of their first child.

Don will be playing Pierce for a few weeks, finishing off the character’s exit storyline.

Neighbours airs weekdays at 1.45pm and 5.30pm on Channel 5 (UK) and 6.30pm on 10 Peach (Australia).
