The males just give up and head home.
While males head home when the weather turns sour, females continue foraging.

Is it weird that i think it is (they are?) actually kinda cute?
A reptile breeder in China was in for a surprise recently when he checked on his newly hatched snakes: a cobra with two heads!

Some good news for one of the world's rarest penguins.
While most of the planet's oceans are warming, a geological quirk has created a refuge of cold water in the Galápagos where penguins can thrive.

My latest inquiry into human anatomy and physiology focused on sweat - and what information is hidden away within it.
We all know that we sweat when we are hot, anxious or embarrassed – it’s less well known that sweat actually carries emotional messages.

Find out what life hacks these bald eagles used to improve their odds! (Or: We Brought Bald Eagles Back to the Channel Islands. You'll Never Guess What Happened Next!)
Reintroducing a species into part of its historic range is tricky business, especially if the habitat has changed since it was originally extirpated.

The orangutans at the LA Zoo are enjoying some fancy new digs.
Meet 'Eloise,' an orangutan at the LA Zoo with a cerebral palsy-like disorder. To meet her needs, the zoo's caring staff opted to redesign her entire enclosure!

Ever since our species first emerged, we have turned our eyes skyward in an attempt to understand our place in the cosmos. Now we can peer down from space to understand ourselves.

Ancient Chinese records help us reconstruct centuries of wildlife decline.
Wildlife records rarely extend more than a few decades, but China has more than 2000 years’ worth of natural history data waiting to be analyzed.

And it's a stunner of a species!
From face-to-face sex to friendly cooperation at mealtime, the 'long-lost' Larger Pacific Striped Octopus displays a slew of behaviours unlike any other octopus species.

I talked to a researcher who intentionally littered some UK beaches. (Don't worry, she cleaned it up later.)

Want some non-lion news? By me at Conservation Magazine.
Many have long thought that a lake's blueness was related to water clarity, but new evidence reveals something different – and far more interesting.
