Our German-speaking readers will be happy to know that his 1877 scientific paper is freely available to read online (check our source!)

Tuna, champion of thermal regulation!

With mackerel sharks, tunas are the only species able to maintain a body temperature higher than that of the surrounding water... even when it's 43 °F!

Look Granny, we’ve finally found your dentures!

Has science gone too far? The Pacú (Piaractus mesopotamicus) does look like a bad photomontage but everything is genuine in this picture. This tropical fish originates from the Amazonian basin, like his cousin Pirhana. It feeds on crustaceans, algae, insects, roots and seeds: nothing is too good for its chompers!
