1. Australian Cattle Dogs
Known for the intense bonds they form with their owners, these dogs came from original drovers bred with motherflipping dingoes. That’s some rugged bush street cred. And look at that smiling puddin’!
Specifically, nobel prizes, specifically, for a lot of ground breaking research in physiology or medicine. One dude did a comic book scientist and drank a petri dish of bacteria to prove it caused ulcers. Another was responsible for a little thing called penicillin.

The album Back In Black, along with releasing an all black cover before Metallica, has the following honours: “[sold] 50 million copies worldwide, making it tied for second highest-selling album of all time, the highest-selling album by a band, the best-selling hard rock album of all-time.”
