A new giant file clam species was found off the coast of Canada. While the first sighting of this species was over 30 years ago, recent technology has finally allowed scientists to distinguish them as their own.
Two snow leopard cubs were born June 16 at Chicago's Brookfield Zoo. Watch a video of the two adorable newborns!
Feathered fossils examined by Brown University researchers were found to hold vital pigment information about a bird-like dinosaur that died 150 million years ago.
Large dust storms carry valuable particles eastward to the Pacific Ocean for phytoplankton to feed on. Since this species naturally combats climate change, varying storm deposits could have a detrimental effect.
Researchers recently discovered the true potential of Goffin cockatoo's cognitive capabilities. When presented with two choices, only one of which earned a reward, the birds successfully learned to "choose wisely."
The polar bear Knut of the Berlin Zoo died unexpectedly four years ago from drowning. Until now, researchers didn't know the reason behind his epileptic seizures was an autoimmune disease.
Temperate forests face many threats posed by climate change. They are being stressed by hotter, drier air temperature that overheat their leaves and steal all their moisture.
Findings from a study involving the mating habits of female túngara frogs supports the idea that irrationality as the result of being presented with too many choices may have deep biological roots – in humans as well.
For a change, researches examined beach sand instead of beach water and found a surprising amount of pathogens that endanger beach goers. Here's what regulartors should be doing in light of these findings.
The Hubble Space Telescope recently captured detailed images of Twin Jet Nebula, which has recently ejected its outer layers, and illuminated them, signifying it is in its final stages of life.
University of New Hampshire researchers have discovered they can use the chemical signatures found in the inner ear bones of winter flounder to help them trace the fish to their estuaries – a critical part of remedying their population decline.
Astronomers recently discovered two supermassive black holes in the quasar known as Markarian 231, using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope. This suggests that these massive black holes form from violent mergers.
Tropical songbirds have a lower adult mortality rate than temperate birds because they are raised in smaller families. This directly affects their wing growth and ability to escape from predators.
Recent studies show that ultrafine particles emitted during backyard projects are harmful to one's cardiovascular and respiratory system if inhaled.
