Tiny sea snail 'swims like a bee' A tiny species of sea snail "flies" underwater using movements just like winged insects, according to a study.

Tiny sea snail 'swims like a bee'

US scientists observed the so-called sea butterfly - actually an aquatic snail - using high-speed video and flow-tracking systems. The 3mm critter flaps its wing structures, which grow where a snail's foot would normally be, in a characteristic figure-of-eight pattern. It also uses some of the vortex-making tricks that keep insects in the air. UNILAD - American Whip Spider Attacks Its Owner. Here's The World's Cutest Angry Frog You've Ever Seen -

Australia: Tasmanian tiger 'sighting' proves it is not extinct

World-renowned thylacine hunter Michael Moss has spent 20 years searching for the elusive wildcat across the country, and says dashboard cameras are the key to proving his theory. "There has already been a claimed sighting of one in Fisheries Rd, Devon Meadows, a few years ago," Moss told the Cranbourne Leader. "And I've got footage of what I believe is one crossing a paddock in the Strezlecki Ranges, near Wilsons Promontory. "Most reports to date have been of animals near or crossing roads ... with the advent of dashboard cameras in cars, I think we will see some concrete evidence before much longer.

We know more than ever about our own bodies, the biosphere, the planet and even the cosmos. We take pictures of Pluto, unravel quantum mechanics, synthesise complex chemicals and can peer into (as well as manipulate) the workings of DNA, not to mention our brains and, increasingly, even our diseases. Sometimes science’s very success causes trouble, it’s true. Complete Fossil of 23 Million-Year-Old Lizard in Amber Resin Found by Mexican Researchers.

Jul 09, 2013 09:45 AM EDT By Stephen Adkins, UniversityHerald Reporter A team of Mexican researchers have identified a small piece of fossil resin, in the shape of a trapezoid, to be of a 23 million-year-old lizard belonging to a new species of genus Anolis.

Complete Fossil of 23 Million-Year-Old Lizard in Amber Resin Found by Mexican Researchers

Like Us on Facebook Several months ago, the researchers retrieved the complete fossil of the lizard, trapped in amber, from Simojovel amber deposits located in the northern part of the south-eastern state of Chiapas, Mexico. The most notable feature of this fossil was the soft tissue and the skin of the vertebrae was well-preserved in the amber since pre-historic times. The fossilized amber deposit is currently displayed at the Amber Museum in San Cristobal de las Casas. Francisco Riquelme of the National Autonomous University of Mexico's Physics Institute said that the lizard fossil measured approximately 4.5 cm by 1.3 cm and was 'a complete and articulated animal that also preserves remains of soft tissue and skin.'

I’ll be the first to admit that I find a lot of Frankenstein taxidermy pretty corny, but the work of Enrique Gomez De Molina is so precise and seamless, his cut-and-paste beasts achieve a kind of uncanny beauty.

Unfortunately, his materials weren’t exactly acquired above-board. In 2012 he was sentenced to 20 months in federal pen for trafficking in endangered and protected wildlife—or at least their parts. The prosecutor points out that De Molina has been purchasing parts of endangered and protected animals for years, including “cobra, a pangolin, hornbills, and the skulls of babirusa and orangutans.” (If you’re naive enough to ask why it’s illegal to import an endangered animal that’s already dead, I’ll leave you to your thoughts.) However, despite making up to $80,000 per piece, De Molina claims he’s in it for the animals, “to bring awareness to the danger faced by a multitude of species: nuclear and chemical waste, overdevelopment, and destruction of rainforests.” Sure thing, buddy.

The Coolest New Species of the 21st Century — I Want To Cuddle With #4! Posted By C. Kramer C. Kramer TRS_Blog_RESP_SC_Rectangle1 In the past few years, thousands of new species have been discovered; previously-thought-to-be-extinct species have been re-discovered; and we’ve learned cool new stuff about species that have been around for a while. We’ve listed a few of the coolest species that that have cropped up in the last several years. 13. Video: Avispas convierten a arañas en esclavas zombi para que tejan redes para sus larvas.

Let’s face it – we’re all looking forward to retirement and crossing off a lot of firsts from that mounting to-do list. For one lucky ex-circus lion, this meant for the first time feeling grass beneath his feet. A viral video (below), uploaded last week by the nonprofit organization Rancho dos Gnomos Santuário (known as Ecological Sanctuary Association – Rancho dos Gnomos in English) shows the exact moment that an ex-circus lion called Will was delivered to the sanctuary in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

From a life of performing in circuses across Brazil to this luscious green pasture, Will is seen running excitedly onto the grass, happily lolloping and kneading the earth beneath his giant paws. Aged 13, Will is nearing his twilight years. But you’d never know, with how sprightly and cat-like he springs from his holding cage. Adorable Circle of Life. How Dinosaurs Shrank and Became Birds. From Quanta Magazine (find original story here). Modern birds descended from a group of two-legged dinosaurs known as theropods, whose members include the towering Tyrannosaurus rex and the smaller velociraptors. The theropods most closely related to avians generally weighed between 100 and 500 pounds — giants compared to most modern birds — and they had large snouts, big teeth, and not much between the ears. A velociraptor, for example, had a skull like a coyote’s and a brain roughly the size of a pigeon’s.

For decades, paleontologists’ only fossil link between birds and dinosaurs was archaeopteryx, a hybrid creature with feathered wings but with the teeth and long bony tail of a dinosaur. These animals appeared to have acquired their birdlike features — feathers, wings and flight — in just 10 million years, a mere flash in evolutionary time.

Many of us see animals as human beings’ equals, so it’s only natural that some photographers see them this way as well. Vincent Lagrange, a photographer in Antwerp, Belgium, captured the human side of animals by taking serious and dignified portraits of the sort that us humans like to take of each other. His photo series is called “Human Animal.” “I tried to photograph the animals as humans, depicting their emotion and human-like characteristics in a sombre way,” Lagrange told Yatzer.

And indeed, the serious mood of these photos encourages us to examine these animals’ faces and read into their facial expressions. Hicieron una lista con los animales más mortíferos del mundo.

Frogs probably don’t normally elicit an *aaaaw* response, but there is just something about tiny things that make them utterly adorable. The weeny species pictured above, plus six more, were all discovered recently following an arduous five year hunt in the Brazilian Atlantic Rainforest.

With some adults not exceeding a puny 1 centimeter in length, you can easily envisage how tricky they were to spot, even with the striking colors sported by some. The micro-amphibians all belong to a group, or genus, called Brachycephalus, members of which are up there with the world’s tiniest known terrestrial vertebrates. Their thumbnail-size is not without consequences and has led to various changes in body structure, such as a loss of toes and fingers.

Their complex lives are just as fascinating. Males gather in the vegetation along small streams and call from the undersides of leaves in hope of attracting a female. When a male's territory is invaded by a rouge male it is unacceptable, and the resident will initially "chirp" out a warning. If this doesn't drive off the intruder, the situation may escalate to physical combat.

The males will wrestle until one of the combatants is pinned down, with his butt touching the leaf, for a short period of time. Females, who don't generally inhabit the calling site, move in to the stream-side vegetation from the surrounding forest. Watch this origami robot fold itself up, walk, swim, and dissolve. MIT researchers demonstrated a tiny origami robot that folds itself into shape and then walks and swims around propelled by magnetic fields below its operating surface.

When the robot's job is done, it can drop itself into a tank of acetone and dissolve. The robot consists of a magnet and PVC layers between a laser-cut polystyrene or paper "skeleton. " Heating the robot causes the PVC to contract and the body folds at specific locations, completing its self-assembly in about one minute.
