This cave lion cub may be frozen and more than 30,000 years old, but it kind of looks like a teddy bear.
More than 30,000 years ago, a pair of 1-week-old cave lions suckled a meal of milk and then died hours later when their den collapsed. Scientists found the frozen mummies of the squished cubs.

Laura isn't there anything we can do about fisherman sweeping the sea bottom. I'll tie myself to a boat naked if I have too.

Think of it as a prehistoric marine lawnmower 
Imagine a crocodile-size reptile with a hammerhead-like jaw swimming around a Triassic-era ocean and sucking up plants, much like a lawnmower.

It would be really difficult.
Apologies to people keen on reviving extinct dinosaurs, but researchers have never recovered dinosaur DNA, which is necessary for cloning. But, intriguingly, they have found fragments of mystery DNA in dinosaur bone, experts told Live Science.

It looks like it swam off a page of a Dr. Seuss book.
Since Francis Tully's fossil discovery in the coalfields of Illinois, the so-called "Tully monster" has perplexed scientists, with some calling it a worm and others a shell-less snail.

What can kids learn from Barbie's new diversity?
Playtime could broaden kids' perspectives and ideas of what is "good" when it comes to body image, as new, diverse toys come onto the market, sociologists say.

African grey parrots are intelligent birds, but should they give testimony or offer spoken evidence at murder trials?

Queen Bey.
Beyoncé hasn't revealed what inspired her to create "Lemonade," an album that details emotions felt after learning of a husband's infidelity. But regardless of whether the album is "real," it mirrors what really happens to betrayed partners, experts said.

Condor love nest.
After a California condor pair's egg went mysteriously missing in the middle of the night, the duo is back on track, raising a foster chick that biologists surreptitiously slipped into the birds' mountain nest.

It's more than just the saber-toothed cat.
The saber-toothed cat may be the most famous saber-toothed animal, but it's hardly the only one. More than a dozen kinds of animals — many of them now extinct — had saber teeth, including the saber-toothed salmon and the marsupial Thylacosmilus.

Asian invasion, dinosaur style. 
Tyrannosaurus rex, king of the dinosaur age, wasn't a North American native, a new study suggests. And once the beast came onto the scene it muscled out all its competitors and took over.
