Even in the wake of climate change some species are doing fine, learning to adapt to changing ecosystems by following their favorite foods. A new field study has revealed a very distinct example of this in southeast Alaska’s common char.
Do you remember your first game of catch? It may be easy now, but guessing where the ball was headed and getting your hand in its path was something you had to learn. It turns out that this isn't so for dragonflies, who appear to be born with the ability to predict the flight path of their prey.

In a historic move, California has become the first state to officially ban wildlife-killing contests, a controversial topic among livestock holders and conservationists as of late.
In the first-ever real-time tracking of leopard populations in India, researchers have determined that the big cats are surprisingly fearless when it comes to wandering near human neighborhoods.

We've seen it in the movies: a man-eating carnivore staring down its prey while saliva drips from its fanged mouth.

Daddy-longlegs have proven to be expert hunters, literally snatching fleeing prey out of the air. Now, researchers have taken a close look at how exactly these creatures developed their unique hunting style, seemingly adapting to catch one slippery prey in particular.
Forelimb bone data obtained by two paleobiologists help predict the predation style of a wide variety of carnivorous mammals, particularly the extinct marsupial thylacine, as described in a study published in the Journal of Morphology.
Bumblebees tend to huddle in packs when they sense that danger is near, according to new research from Queen Mary University of London.
Field work conducted by Brown University provided evidence that crabs are killing the coastal saltmarshes of southern New England and Long Island.
Glow-in-the-dark lanternsharks use their bioluminescence as a warning system against potential predators as well as to camouflage themselves from prey.
Removal of predators at the top of the food chain causes a significant rise in carbon emissions, says a new study.
