It's rare to see a great white shark stranded on the beach, but it may become more common as their numbers rise.
A young, great white shark had a near-death experience when the retreating tide left it stranded on a beach in Cape Cod on Monday afternoon (July 13). Beachgoers spotted the giant fish writhing on the sand, and threw water on its gills to help it breathe.

A 480-million-year-old fossil is giving paleontologists new insights into a sea monsterlike creature called an anomalocaridid, which is an ancestor of modern-day arthropods such as lobsters and scorpions, a new study finds.

When exactly should you play dead? Not until the last nanosecond.
News of a grizzly bear attacking a 63-year-old man, who was a skilled hiker, in Yellowstone on Friday (Aug. 7), may have even avid adventurers wondering what's the best way to escape the long and curved claws of such a wild animal.

Ichthyosaurs
During the dinosaur age, ichthyosaurs — large marine reptiles that look like dolphins — flourished in prehistoric oceans. But as competition in these areas grew, ichthyosaurs lost both territory and species before gradually going extinct, a study finds.
