Using camera traps, researchers have learned a little more about elusive bush dogs and their distribution across Panama. This could ultimately help conservationists protect these "near-threatened" animals.
Researchers have learned a little more about how fast tyrannosaurs were, after examining dinosaur tracks preserved at Wyoming's Glenrock Paleon Museum. Experts estimate these large carnivores were able to keep up with their competition and out-run herbivorous prey.
Human friendship is not as unique as previously thought, say researchers who tested chimpanzees and found that they are more likely to share with those they trust and consider friends.
Males of a newly discovered species of jumping spiders have been filmed playing peek-a-boo with potential mates. Not all females are receptive to this playful courtship -- females who have mated before will chase off suitors while virgin females hook-up almost immediately.
Researchers have found Spider-Man would need much larger hands and feet if he were to scale walls in real life. That's because the superhero – and any human for that matter – would need a much larger body surface area equipped with far more sticky footpads to support his weight. That's why geckos are the largest animals able to scale smooth vertical walls.
National Park Service biologists recently discovered two mountain lion kittens in the Santa Monica Mountains in California. The pair's mother is thought to be a well-tracked mountain lion designated as P-19, but DNA testing is underway to confirm who their father is. Nonetheless, researchers say this successful birth highlights the habitat quality of the Santa Monica Mountains.
After delving into the brain of the zebra finch, researchers revealed how the birds are able to learn the courtship songs sung by their fathers. It turns out they have specialized nerve cells that allow them to memorize one note at a time.
Fish chatter with each other in order to stay close to one another and better their chances of safety. While contact calls are generally used for mating purposes or to defend one's territory, this is the first time researchers have observed fish communicating to maintain group cohesion.
A frozen mammoth carcass excavated from the Siberian Arctic had several spear-related injuries, which suggests humans arrived in the area 10,000 years earlier than previously thought.
A new experiment revealed that capuchin monkeys will punish other monkeys who have been given more food. Yale researchers say this is the first evidence suggesting that the psychology of spite extends deeper into our evolutionary history than previously thought.
With the help of detection dogs, researchers have located areas within the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem that may be suitable for grizzly bear habitats. This will allow researchers to better target conservation measures.
The American Museum of Natural History in New York City has a newly unveiled dinosaur skeleton that is the world's largest. It has been identified as a new species of titanosaur, but scientists haven't named it yet.
A complete dinosaur skeleton of a baby Chasmosaurus has revealed some interesting characteristics of horned dinosaurs, which are characterized by a large bony appendage known as a frill.
Male Brazilian torrent frogs perform interesting dance routines using their toes, feet, hands, legs, arms, vocal sacs, head, and body to attract a mate. Researchers say these diverse visual and audio displays are unlike any others they have observed in frogs.
