Scientists Discover Two New Marsupial Species in Australia.

Great News! Scientists Discover Two New Marsupial Species in Australia

However, scientists in Australia have identified two new mammals in a country known for its unique fauna – and both are cousin species of the greater glider, a marsupial that is known for gliding from tree to tree and is known for its expressive eyes, large ears, and long furry tails.

Intimate Animal Portraits Capture Unique Quirks and Personalities of Cats, Dogs, and Horses. Photographer Robert Bahou has always wanted pierce through the cuteness and capture what's really going on in an animal's mind.

Intimate Animal Portraits Capture Unique Quirks and Personalities of Cats, Dogs, and Horses

“The idea for this project has been to capture close and telling portraits of the animals we are most familiar with, in an attempt to cast a fresh but honest gaze their way,” the photographer tells us in an email. “I've avoided all distraction by limiting the photographs to medium shots with a black background, and I have purposely avoided humor as a selling point. Despite all the cameras we point at cats and dogs (and sometimes horses), we rarely attempt to capture an intimate moment of character, or personality. We generally direct our attention towards (funny/cute) actions, behavior, and so forth.”

This fascination with animals on a deeper level was what led Bahou to create Animal Soul, a series devoted to capturing the many quirks and personalities of dogs, cats, and horses, in a visual form.

Vermont Wildlife Trail Cam Captures Opossum Pulling Ticks Off A Deer's Face

“We found that the average opossum kills thousands of ticks every week wandering through the forest,” says Felicia Keesing, a biologist at Bard College and an Adjunct Scientist at the Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies. “So, the opossum wanders through the woods and ticks get on them just like they might get on any mammal wandering through the woods. But the opossums groom them off and kill them in the process of the tick wandering around trying to find a place to feed.” This picture caught on a trail cam by the Vermont Wildlife Coalition shows another way. During the dry season, tick infestations are at their worst, sometimes killing young deer.
