Saturday, April 05, 2014

This, I would think, should be self-evident: Generally speaking, big creatures eat smaller creatures that, in turn, eat even smaller creatures, like this ...

The Power Of Poop: A Whale Story

Thursday, April 03, 2014

Some people like a nice walk, some a gentle run, others a cup of tea. But not Andrew Ucles. There is nothing relaxed about Andrew. You can find him chasing after wild animals on his videos, grabbing them with his bare hands and then, while they squiggle, scratch and lunge, ...

'Oh, Hello,' Says Andrew, As He Suddenly Grabs You By The Leg Or Neck

Thursday, April 03, 2014

There it is: a wild animal, lurking. Here's Andrew, darting so fast, using his bare hands — and bingo! Suddenly, he's holding the animal. He doesn't use weapons — just his lightning-quick reflexes.

The List Of Animals Who Can Truly, Really Dance Is Very Short. Who's On It?

Tuesday, April 01, 2014

YouTube is chock full of cats, gophers, dogs and chimps who are supposed to be dancing. But they're not. Biologists say the list of "true" dancers is extremely small. We're on it. But guess who else?

The Most Unusual Boy Band In The World

Saturday, March 29, 2014

They sing. They leap. They do crazy cartwheels, landing with pinpoint perfection. They finish with a wild cry of joy. But it's what they don't do that's most remarkable.

You Yawn. She Doesn't Yawn Back. Uh-Oh

Tuesday, March 25, 2014

There you are: face to face, looking into her eyes, a puddle of love, when all of a sudden, you yawn. Usually, she yawns back; but what if she doesn't?

You Yawn. She Doesn't Yawn Back. Uh-Oh

Tuesday, March 25, 2014

Robert Krulwich/NPR

You are at a table for two, sitting with your girlfriend or boyfriend, when, for no good reason (you can't help it, you didn't mean to do it), you yawn. It's a big, gaping, jaw-extending, embarrassing yawn and because you didn't cover ...

I Can't Believe What I'm Seeing: A Springtime (Froggy) Miracle

Saturday, March 22, 2014

A few weeks ago, this little frog was frozen solid, hard like an ashtray, basically dead. And then, we don't know how, this amazing thing happened ...

NOVA scienceNOW

Two weeks ago this animal was frozen solid. If you found one in the woods, packed in the topsoil, hiding under a leaf, you could pull it from the ground and it would feel like an ashtray. You could bang it (lightly) on ...

What's The Biggest Animal Gathering Ever? (Was Rod Stewart There?)

Friday, March 21, 2014

It's a small moment in a sprawling Shakespeare play. Most people miss it. A nobleman named Mortimer has been locked up by the king, who decrees: Don't anyone say "Mortimer" in my royal presence. That name is forbidden. But one of Mortimer's allies has a plan. He wants to give ...

Count the army ants; count the starlings; count the herring, the pigeons and the fans at a Rod Stewart concert in Rio, and then ask: What's the greatest gathering of animals ever?

An Imaginary Town Becomes Real, Then Not. True Story

Tuesday, March 18, 2014

Two mapmakers made the place up. It wasn't real. Then, oddly, it popped into being. I am not making this up. It happened. Then it un-happened.

You're Old. You're a Rock. You Can See

Saturday, March 15, 2014

Two rocks sit on a hill. They're rocks, so there's not a whole lot to do. But then there's a noise, some motion, and suddenly they are witnesses to an extraordinary change. Come see what they see.

You're Old. You're a Rock. You Can See

Saturday, March 15, 2014

Daring Cameraman In Ukraine Captures Secret 'Moscow' Summit

Friday, March 14, 2014

OK, I'll admit, right off, this isn't that kind of summit. Putin wasn't there. But I didn't lie. It was the other kind of summit — as in the verb for "to climb." And this one was so gripping (literally), so breathless, so crazy, so illegal that I think you're going to ...
