A recent analysis of eight fossilized teeth revealed the true identity of a dinosaur species incorrectly classified years ago. It turns out that Dimetrodon borealis actually represents the first Canadian Dimetrodon, or terrestrial animal with steak knife-like teeth.
Rare wood turtle eggs were recently unearthed during a backyard renovation in Nova Scotia. Thanks to the homeowner's care, the eggs were able to fully develop, and the hatchlings have made it safely to the nearest pond where they will hibernate through winter.
Northern Atlantic cod are making a comeback off the coast of Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. This proves that with proper conservation measures, population recovery is possible.
Using well-preserved 800-year-old seeds, students have successfully revived an extinct species of squash.
Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks' public-comment period for considering whether to restore bison herds to the state ends in late September. After that, the agency will be a bit closer to deciding yay or nay regarding a publicly-managed herd in the state.
Crocodiles roamed areas of Wyoming and Canada 50 million years ago, enjoying the temperate climates. But since these areas are so far from ocean warming effects, scientists wondered how they remained habitable for large aquatic reptiles.
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.
Some diamonds found in Canada's Northwest Territories contain ancient seawater, according to recent studies. While these diamonds formed through processes like the precious gems we know, they are younger and uglier.
One of the lightest elements, helium, has been thought to be dangerously near finished. Used in MRIs and the Large Hadron Collider, it's important. Researchers say it lies beneath mountain ranges, geyser fields, and is otherwise in supply in ways we didn't know as well before.
Five nations surrounding the Arctic Circle have things to say about fishing there.
There are new factors in why the pre-historic ice sheet that covered Canada may have melted, and how this might affect Greenland and Antarctica.
Pine beetles are not only attacking adult stands of trees in western forests, but leaving seedlings vulnerable to insect attack, say researchers at the University of Alberta.
Massive bird invasions taking place across the United States and Canada, a phenomenon that has long puzzled scientists and birdwatchers alike, is reportedly linked to climate shifts, new research indicates.
Bison once freely roamed vast swaths of Canada and south-central Alaska, rarely, if ever, seeing a human hunter. However, by the late 1900s the animals were listed as endangered in Canada, and had disappeared entirely from Alaskan lands. Now a state-side initiative is bringing the bison back after a decades-long hiatus in an effort to repopulate the wild with these noble beasts.
