Morning start: Humans are the only animals that can blush

Your morning start for Monday, Aug. 2, 2021

Good morning, and happy Monday! Hope you have an excellent start to your week.

Fun fact:

Humans are believed to be the only animals that can blush. That’s because embarrassment is a complicated emotion requiring understanding others’ opinions and other factors. Charles Darwin is believed to have called blushing “the most peculiar and most human of all expressions.” Why humans devloped this evolutionary trait remains a mystery.
