Few hours after observing its behavior, they noticed the shark started to act as if it was "intoxicated."
The data captured by the cameras will not only help scientists understand the whale's feeding patterns, social habits and role in the Antarctic ecosystem, but as well as help them determine how any change in krill populations affect them. By understanding these, they will be able to come up with measures to help them survive.
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.
Viewers of the nest cam livestream were surprised to see bald eagles feed a cat to their young, but it is a reminder that this is a normal way of nature, which is not always delicate or pretty.
The Basking Shark Satellite Tagging Project opened up a new finding: The Sea of the Hebrides off the west coast of Scotland may be a hot spot for basking sharks feeding, breeding and migrating in the summer.
Researchers discovered that carnivorous plants such as the Venus flytrap can count. This is likely their way of avoiding false alarms and making sure they have captured a juicy bug before releasing their digestive enzymes.
Dogs are often seen as "messy drinkers," but there is a method behind their sloppy ways. It turns out, they slurp up water using high-speed, precisely timed movements.
Red deer living across Europe prefer to graze on grasses and short shrubs, but when food sources are covered by feet of snow and ice, their stomachs shrink and their bodies take in nutrients more efficiently than in more plentiful summers.
Well-preserved mosasaur fossils represent a new smallish marine reptile that used binocular vision to hunt at night.
A new genus of plant bug, plus four new species from Australia were recently identified.
Birds that take turns feeding their young prove to be more successful parents, researchers discovered in a recent study of long-tailed tits.
A fossil species of baleen whales sheds new light on the transition from ancient toothed whales to modern baleen whales.
Bison adjust their diet seasonally based on reduced availability of the grasses they perfer but are less nutritious during the spring and fall.
Using fossil teeth, researchers from Stony Brook University have found an ancient nectar-drinking bat was probably omnivorous.
A suspicious number of young starlings have drowned recently in Europe. While researchers are still unsure why groups of juvenile birds have been drowning, they believe they have some ways to help the inexperienced wild animals access water safely.
