Costasiella kuroshimae (also referred to as "leaf sheep" and "Shaun the sheep") is a species of sacoglossan sea slug whose beady eyes and flat face make it look like an adorable cartoon sheep.

Adorable Portraits of Pollen-Covered Bats Taken by the World's Leading Bat Expert Bats are some of the most fascinating and misunderstood creatures in the world, and few know this better than Merlin Tuttle, the world's leading bat biologist and photographer. If you've ever seen a fantastic photo of a bat in a newspaper article, book, or anywhere else, chances are that Tuttle took it. The founder of Bat Conservation International, Tuttle has spent nearly his entire life working for the conservation of bats, who are often hunted and feared despite playing a vital part in nature. His passion sprouted as a teenager living in Tennessee in the 1950s, when Tuttle managed to prove that gray bats are migratory, contrary to what textbooks and scientists said at the time. How does Tuttle manage to get so close to his nocturnal subjects with his camera and flash? Merlin Tuttle: Website My Modern Met granted permission to use photos by Merlin Tuttle.

Manul – the Cat that Time Forgot Have you ever wanted to take a trip through time to see what animals looked like millions of years ago? When it comes to cats there is little or no need. This beautiful specimen is a Manul, otherwise known as Pallas’s Cat. About twelve million years ago it was one of the first two modern cats to evolve and it hasn’t changed since. The other species, Martelli’s Cat, is extinct so what you are looking at here is a unique window in to the past of modern cats. Although the Manul is only the size of the domestic cat, reaching about 26 inches in length its appearance makes it appear somewhat larger. The main reason for its survival throughout the ages has been its isolation. Take a close look at the eyes of the Manul. It also has a much shorter face than other cats, which makes its face look flattened. The Manus has not been studied a great deal in the wild, where it is classified as near threatened. Don’t rush to your local pet store, however.

Kangaroos have three vaginas We interrupt your regularly scheduled news programming to bring you this wonderful piece of trivia about kangaroo genitals. Regular readers will know of my love for Inside Nature’s Giants, the British documentary where anatomists cut up large animals to examine how their bodies work and evolved. It’s a truly incredible show, combining unbridled joy at the natural world, drama, and solid educational value. So far, it has brought us the horrifying throat of a leatherback turtle, the mysterious bloodsweat of a hippo, and the exploding insides of a beached whale. But this week’s episode may have topped all of that with the triple vaginas of the female kangaroo. This set-up is shared by all marsupials – the group of mammals that raise their young in pouches. Note that the ureters, which carry urine from the kidneys to the bladder, pass through the gaps between the three tubes. With its complicated reproductive set-up, a female kangaroo can be perpetually pregnant.
