Magpies are Not only Black and White
The Eurasian magpie ( right ) is one of the few species of birds which can recognise itself in a mirror test.  As they stand out so much with their black and white plumage you might imagine that this is something which is relatively easy to do.  After all, ...

Watch as Black-Bellied Whistling Ducks Save their Ducklings from an American Alligator

The Ribbon Seal: The Seal with Stripes
What do you get if you cross a zebra with a seal?  There is no sensible answer to that question, of course, but there is a species of seal which lives in the Arctic and subarctic regions of the North Pacific Ocean which could (however unfeasibly) be the pro...

Baby Elephant’s Bathtub is a Tight Squeeze
Kids are kids, whatever the species.  So when this baby elephant at the Elephantstay sanctuary in Thailand saw his bath being filled his first reaction is, like any sensible child, to make a run up to it and dive in head first.  Unfortunately there comes a ...

Cool Facts about Snails

Skeletorus! Amazing New Species of Peacock Spider Discovered
It is, of course, just a nickname.  In September 2013, American PhD student Madeline (Maddie) Girard from Berkeley in California and her Sydney friend Eddie Aloise King alighted upon five males of a hitherto unknown species of peacock spider in Wondul Range...

Lembeh Straits, A Macro Symphony
The red ‘orang-utan’ crab that you can see in the picture on the left is so tiny that its home is a discarded Coca-Cola bottle top.  The shrimp that you will see after it is barely 4mm tall.  Such is life in Malaysia’s Lembeh Straits and these two creatures...
