For the first time, scientists document monkey feeding on bats. Experts say this could provide clues on how zoonotic pathogens spread to other animal groups, including humans.
The authorities discovered the vessel was burned along with the documents that may help them uncover the mystery.
People in Malawi continue to mutilate and murder albinos because they believe that their body parts can be used to create potions. A limb can be sold to hunters for $2,000 while an entire corpse amounts to $75,000.
There is no statistically significant difference in the sexual behavior between people who are living in the sub-African countries receiving funds from United States for abstinence education and people living in countries that do not receive any funds at all.
In Malawi in Africa, researchers are testing the use of drones to speed up the process of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) testing for babies.
On tonight's episode of "Wild Things with Dominic Monaghan" the animal enthusiast searchers for Kenya's giant spitting cobra -- a snake that delivers the most venomous bite of all Cobras. Dominic is also nearly trampled by an injured elephant in the savannahs. Don’t miss it!
To rescue, rehabilitate and reintegrate orphaned elephants that lost their mothers to ivory poachers, Silent Heroes and the African Wildlife Trust has partnered to build the first elephant orphanage in Tanzania and is expected to open in March.

Illegal trafficking and poaching of rhinos, elephants and pangolins, and others in South Africa were the topics in a recent talk by a Wild Tomorrow Fund ecologist, at Audubon Greenwich, in Connecticut. Researchers say there is hope despite a seemingly grim future for the animals.
Recent camera trappings in a national park in Ethiopia reveal a hidden population of up to 200 lions. Researchers say this could be promising for the currently vulnerable species.
Social mammals, including humans and mongooses, may compete in groups to produce larger offspring. A new study found that this, in addition to males' vying to pass along their genes by winning antler-fighting contests and the like, may be part of the evolutionary effort to increase the survival rate of one's own offspring.
Although rhino poaching decreased slightly in South Africa, experts say 2015 was a record breaker for illegal rhino kills across the entire continent.
Storks and other European birds have been cutting their annual migrations to Africa short by stopping to feed at nearby landfills. Researchers say consuming "junk food" is unhealthy, and when the birds alter their travel plans they disrupt ecosystems both at home and at their winter destinations.
