It was probably left behind or traded in the town of Tulln following the Ottoman siege of nearby Vienna in 1683. DNA analysis shows that the beast - the first intact camel skeleton found in central Europe - was a Bactrian-dromedary hybrid, popular in the army. It also has bone defects that suggest it wore a harness and was ridden. The find is reported in the journal PLOS One and emerged from an archaeological dig that took place amid preparations for a new shopping centre in the town.

New Carnivore Discovered, Rare With Teddy Bear Looks. A fuzzy fog-dweller with a face like a teddy bear is the first carnivore found in the Western Hemisphere in more than three decades, a new study says. The 2-pound (0.9-kilogram) creature, called an olinguito, didn't make itself easy to find.

The orange-brown mammal lives out a solitary existence in the dense, hard-to-study cloud forests of Colombia and Ecuador, which inspired part of its Latin name Bassaricyon neblina: Neblina is Spanish for "fog. " What's more, the large-eyed critter—now the smallest known member of the raccoon family—is active only at night, when it hunts for fruit in its Andean habitat. Like other carnivores such as the giant panda, olinguitos seem to eat mostly plants, but are nevertheless part of the taxonomic order Carnivora.

(Also see "Pictures: 14 Rarest and Weirdest Mammal Species Named.

Unbelievably Cute Mammal With Teddy Bear Face Rediscovered

For more than 20 years, the Ili pika (Ochotona iliensis), a type of tiny, mountain-dwelling mammal with a teddy bear face, had eluded scientists in the Tianshan Mountains (map) of northwestern China.

In fact, people have spotted only 29 live individuals, and little is known about the animal's ecology and behavior. (Also see "Newly Discovered Carnivore Looks Like Teddy Bear.

Three extinct squirrel-like species discovered: Mammals may have originated much earlier than thought

The study, led by scientists at the American Museum of Natural History and the Chinese Academy of Sciences, supports the idea that mammals -- an extremely diverse group that includes egg-laying monotremes such as the platypus, marsupials such as the opossum, and placentals like humans and whales -- originated at least 208 million years ago in the late Triassic, much earlier than some previous research suggests. The study is published today in the journal Nature.

"For decades, scientists have been debating whether the extinct group, called Haramiyida, belongs within or outside of Mammalia," said co-author Jin Meng, a curator in the Museum's Division of Paleontology.

Cámara oculta: descubren 3 nuevas especies de mamíferos en Papúa Nueva Guinea. Kangaroos Have Five Legs. Your Cat Can See Things That Are Invisible to You. Cats are considered by many as symbols of mysticism because of their elegant and flexible body, as well as their gaze that can “magnetize” anyone… Indeed, as recent scientific data shows, there is another reason why cats have a title of ‘mysterious’ creatures.

It’s all because cats see things we cannot see with our eyes! Cats, like some other animals, have the ability to see psychedelic stripes on flowers or fancy patterns on the wings of birds, which are invisible to human vision. The secret behind the super vision of our four-legged friends is the UV light. According to a recent study cats, as well as dogs and other animals, can perceive this type of light which humans can’t. “There are plenty of things that reflect UV radiation, which some sensitive animals are able to see, while we are not,” said Ronald Douglas, professor of biology of the City University of London and co-author of the study.
