Rules

  1. Only Gif/HTML5 links please. No sound, videos or pictures. The preferred sites for gifs to be hosted on are imgur or gyfcat. These are reliable sources and thus we would love if you hosted your gifs using these sites.

  2. Provide source if there is one. We won't go hunting you down, but at least be considerate of the creator.

  3. Your title must be informative of what is going on in the gif, instead of the good ole "Look at this gem" or "Just a wheel". They can be funny, but just consider this.

  4. Any post that has been submitted in the past 3 months or is in the top 100 of all time cannot be reposted and will be removed. Please report rule breaking posts.

  5. If you feel that any ruling is unfair/not correct, or if you have any other questions, feel free to message the /r/educationalgifs mod team.

  6. No recipe/cooking process related gifs allowed. Please direct your posts to /r/gifrecipes.

Cranberries grow in bogs in moist soil until they ripen. They are harvested by first adding several inches of water to the field; a tractor then rakes the berries off the bushes. Because ripe cranberries float, the fields are flooded and the berries are collected. The cranberries are then processed.

Hedgehog mothers are considered very good mothers as is evident in this video. The mother hedgehog walks slowly enough as she "understands" that her hoglets need more time to catch up and stay with her. Secondly, the mother hedgehog stops several times to check on them to see if they are all there.

Reindeer have a formidable defense strategy when faced with a perceived threat. They will sometimes form "cyclones" as the herd begins walking together in a tight-knit circular fashion to deter a predator, like a bear, that may come near. This behavior is also practiced by reindeer kept in corrals.
