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.

What are the Ig Nobels?

First of all, Ig is not short for Instagram…

The Ig Nobels are prizes awarded every year since 1991, which celebrate ten unusual achievements in scientific research.

They are designed to award people who have made others think about strange things.
