One recent interesting find by scientists and archaeologists is the possibility that ancient rats, or marsupials, have lived at the same time as dinosaurs. What makes it more interesting is that the rats, creatures significantly smaller than dinosaurs, may have eaten the said reptiles.
The Western Australia dibbler was thought to be extinct. However, after nearly 20 years of the repopulation program, Perth Zoo celebrated the birth of the 1000th baby dibbler named Miles.
Cute, cuddly and with fascinating eyes. Who can resist this koala?
Mammals have evolved much more sensitive hearing than their reptile-like ancestors thanks to three super tiny bones tucked away in the auditory canal. But researchers are still unsure how the mammalian middle ear evolve. Now the University of Queensland (UQ), is shedding some light on the matter, challenging current beliefs and calling for further fossil evidence.
Most animals will go to great lengths to find a mate and ensure their survival, but the fatal attraction between certain marsupials takes it too far, causing these species to literally sex themselves to death.
