100% on that one.

how does that work though?

speaker 1 was saying they must have some chemical

speaker 2 was saying "no" because of his tube test... no such chemical


i thought his conclusion that squirrels possessed no such chemical was fine, assuming the results would be the same in the rodent

Second person: In a test tube blood of the squirrel and similar animals freezes at the freezing temperature of water.
