Plants with flowers pointing towards the sky may be more likely to attract moth pollinators, compared to shy sideways-facing flowers. This suggests that flower direction plays a larger role in pollination than scent.
While male bumblebees may be perceived as lazy, researchers recently confirmed the insects can forage just as successfully as their female counterparts.
Increased levels of carbon dioxide in warmer waters may impede a shark's ability to hunt successfully, resulting in diminished growth rates.
When cockroaches need to chew through tough materials they turn on muscled mandible boosters that supply them with super-charged chewing powers.
Kelp Gull attacks have taken their toll on southern right whales over the last four decades – in particular, their calves – which the gulls routinely gouge in the back to feed off their skin and blubber. Now researchers are wondering if the wounds the birds cause are contributing to the increasing mortality rate of these majestic whales.
Smaller hatchlings who have to compete with larger siblings for food grow up become obese adults birds, say researchers who tested starling hatchlings to determine whether competition for food after birth had a long-lasting effect.
Some Asian elephants blast air through their trunks like leaf blowers in order to acquire inaccessible food, suggesting the animals have greater situational awareness and are better problem solvers than thought.
When studying muscle strain during jaw opening in three dinosaur species, researchers found that the Tyrannosaurus rex could extend its jaw 90 degrees –- a skill that came in extremely handy for carnivorous predators.
Narwhal's use their toothy horn in unique ways. Contrary to popular opinion, however, hunting is not one of them. Here's what it's really used for.
Dolly Varden, an Alaskan trout species, are able to retire from migrating each year after growing big enough to store and utilize fat reserves. This is the only known species that partakes in such a retirement.
A new species recently added to the desmostylia group suggests that the hippo-sized suction-feeders were a more diverse group of animals than previously thought and ate in a very unique way.
Fish extend their jaws to decrease the distance between them and their prey. This evolutionary feeding advantage is known as jaw protrusion.

After tagging over 500 bluefin tuna, researchers have determined that the internal temperature of Bluefin Tuna can be used to indentify where the fish feed and how impact ocean temperatures impact them. This discovery will help conservationists better protect the threatened species.
You may think that the natural world is a place where only the strong and selfish can thrive. However, new research on mutual partnerships between species has shown that this is not always the case. In fact, species who depend on one another rarely ever 'cheat' or take advantage of their partners to survive.
