Who says animals don’t have a sense of humor?

What makes us humans think we’re the only living species that can enjoy risky or adventurous behavior?

The varmint had been teasing a dog and cat for a good 20 minutes, moving up and down and circling a tree trunk as if to dare its opponents to come after it. Then, right in front of the astonished canine and feline, it bolted for a tree about 20 yards away as if seeking an adrenaline rush.
