Live Giant Squid + Lightning Coincidence

How smart is a giant squid? Do they have comprehension and powers beyond our imaginations? Just a week ago, in the Gulf of Mexico (June 18, 2019) a curious live giant squid was recorded for only the second time in history.  It approached the faintly blinking lights on a decoy which was disguised as a … Continue reading

New Species Recorded During Historic Dive

An explorer from the USA named Victor Vescovo has used a Triton submarine to boldly go where no one has gone before. While doing so he discovered what appears to be a new animal species never before seen by humans in one of the most isolated places on Earth. Here’s a still image: In the … Continue reading

Discovered: The Cell-Wide Web

With high powered microscopes and new imaging technology scientists have discovered a previously unknown re-configurable nano wiring system inside of cells that directs cellular activities. Researchers at the University of Edinburgh found information is carried across a web of guide wires that transmit signals across tiny, nanoscale distances. It is the movement of charged molecules … Continue reading

Strange Photo: Komodo Dragons “Hugging”

This strange photo of Komodo dragons fighting was taken at just the right moment so they appear to be engaged in a happy hug. It does not appear to be a well known image. TinEye has never heard of it. It was posted on Instagram with credit to Muhtesem Doga but Google Translate says “Muhteşem … Continue reading

Polish Sextuplets a Surprise +1

Only one in roughly five billion human pregnancies results in sextuplets (six babies). This highly unlikely event happened two days ago for a woman in Poland. She and her husband have been celebrated across the country. The kids were given life-long tickets by a soccer team and a congratulatory tweet from the country’s president. … … Continue reading

If this applies to humans, might it explain fashion trends? Think about it: First the unique stands out and people see that as … Continue reading

Do You Have the Dog Owner Genes?

I found this surprising. From a study using data from over 35,000 twins, genes appear to influence a person’s choice to have a dog or not. Scientists have studied the heritability of dog ownership using information from 35,035 twin pairs from the Swedish Twin Registry. The new study suggests that genetic variation explains more than … Continue reading

Were Denisovans Bigger and Stronger than Neanderthal?

I saw a Denisovan tooth (molar) compared to a modern human’s and it was amazingly large. A jaw bone from these extinct humans was found in a cave in Tibet and was dated to at least 160,000 years ago. This was in the Baishiya Karst Cave in Tibet. The WSJ writes: “A fossil jaw found in the … Continue reading

Super Rare White Non-Albino Animals

Rumors of an unusual pair of white giraffes, a mother and child, near the Ishaqbini conservation in Kenya were verified as true in August of 2017. The pair’s unique appearance was likely caused by Leucism, a genetic mutation which inhibits melanin and other pigments from being deposited in an animal’s feathers, hair or skin. Leucism … Continue reading
