Aligator on helium wins Ig Nobel Prize

An alligator on helium has won an Ig award.

The award come from an experiment that tried to understand how alligators communicate.

The Ig Nobel Prize is an award ceremony which is held online and is a joke version of the Nobel Prizes.

Nine other awards were handed out by the science humour magazine Animals of Improbable Research.

Winners included a team that found a way to identify narcissists (people who love themselves too much) by examining their eyebrows.
