Plenty of animals, like whales and wolves, have their own distinct calls of nature, and new research suggests that these sounds contain more human-like language structure than previously thought.
Fossils from tiny prehistoric mammals reveal that these species developed new characteristics - such as better hearing and teeth capable of precise chewing - that led to very precise diets, according to a new study.
Young corals and fish use chemical signals to distinguish between good and bad coral reefs, a new study has found.
Lizards may be the key to unlocking the mystery of limb regeneration, according to new research.
Researchers have stumbled upon a fossil site that revealed that a group of Homo sapiens in Spain were cooking themselves a nice meal of snail between 32,000 and 26,000 years ago. That's about 10,000 years before experts believe ancient Frenchmen took up the same dining habit.
