Despite numerous sightings, California Wildlife noted that mountain lion attacks on people are extremely rare. Since 1986, there have only been 14 human attacks and three of which were fatal.
Some parasitic wasp species lay their eggs in the bellies of wolf spiders so that the larva can feed of the vertebrates' blood. While this does not harm the spiders initially, when the larva mature they end up killing their hosts. The recent findings highlight the diverse parasitic relationships among animals.
Despite the lack of maternal care, young orphaned earwigs grow big and strong. However, like their mothers, they too are likely to care less for their offspring.
After reevaluating the ankle bones of modern birds and comparing them to dinosaurs, researchers confirmed a developmental pattern linking the two species.
New research on the Sunburst Diving Beetles' complex vision system is shedding light on eye morphology that may have implications outside of invertebrate physiology.
Researchers from Dartmouth College studied Arctic mosquitoes in western Greenland in order to better understand the impact climate change has on their growth, development and ability to escape predation.
Researchers recently discovered that if elephants are born during times when their mothers are more stressed, they are likely to age faster and reproduce less during their lifetime.
Although chimpanzees are our closest relatives, it is obvious that we evolved with different facial developments. Stanford University researchers recently examined the two species’ genetics closely to explain how and why.
Imagine this: You're enjoying your midday meal when you have a startling epiphany. Suddenly you just know what it is you're meant to do in life. What's more, your body starts to change to fill that role! It's not something that happens everyday for us humans, but for bees, it's a regular part of life.
Oil and gas development, though it has met our demanding energy needs, also transforms landscapes, impacting both the environment and wildlife, new research says.
Early Tuesday morning, April 7, Colorado state wildlife officials seized more than 100 prairie dogs from a Castle Rock woman's garage. Now they have no place to go, after a New Mexico ranch that previously agreed to take on the animals has rescinded its offer.
In a peculiar study of the season's effects on developing children, researchers discovered that children born in the winter months learn to crawl earlier in their lives than babies born in the Summer.
Researchers have determined that geometric patterning, not just chemical signals, help dictate how a stem cell will specialize. This discovery was detailed in a recently published study.
Researchers have determined that the nervous system forms a bit differently than once thought. A new study shows that precursor cells are "recruited" to help form parts of the peripheral nervous system.
Each child is unique in how long it takes to develop motor skills including sitting, walking, and speaking. A new clinical report from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), said Monday that early recognition of delays can help optimize positive outcomes.
