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

Three Eyed Snake Found + Did You Absorb Your Twin?

A snake with three eyes was found in Australia. Oddly, X-rays showed that it was not the result of a fused double head, but just a third eye appearing. This condition, having three working eyes, may have resulted from the snake absorbing it’s own twin during early development.   A snake found in the Northern … Continue reading

The Message of the Birds

Birds had huge meetings and spent years deciding what to say to humans, then, when the time was right, they leveraged social media to deliver the message. Would the humans understand? Would they take birds seriously? No telling, but they had to try. “Humans, there is a guldok coming. Signal if you understand. Time is … Continue reading

Ancient Bats Linked to Blood Cancer

Never eat a bat. What could happen is that 45 million years later, your species could still be paying for it by dying of a complicated blood cancer. Leukaemia began in ancient bent-winged bats up to 45 million years ago, a study has found. A blood cancer-causing virus has been found in ancient DNA traces … Continue reading

Neanderthal used antibiotics and pain meds. Was Zeus a Neanderthal?

Did Neanderthal man use penicillin and painkillers? They overlapped with modern humans for thousands of years. We now know we interbread with Neanderthals. From genetic sequencing by 23andme.com, I even know my own percentage of Neanderthal ancestry. They had bigger brains, they were much stronger than modern humans, and better immune systems and eyesight. I … Continue reading

The Kangaroo Chicken Mouse, aka Jerboa

Welcome to the weekend. The best strange thing I have for you today is an unusual little beast, a creature I call the kangaroo chicken mouse. They are not actually in the mouse, kangaroo (or obviously chicken) families, however. Officially known as a jerboa, this crepuscular hopping desert rodent Native to North Africa and Asia … Continue reading

3D Printing Human Hearts with Stem Cells

With thousands waiting for replacement hearts around the world, the quest is on for created replacements made of patient stem cells or rejuvenated heart tissue to avoid problems with tissue rejection as often occurs with donor hearts. Israeli scientists have moved science one step closer in the quest. Scientists at Tel Aviv University have printed … Continue reading

Failed De-Extinction of Frogs that Give Birth Through the Mouth

Here’s a strange and interesting project: the attempted de-extinction of the Gastric-Brooding Frog. This unique animal went extinct in the mid-1980’s, we think due to a fungus introduced into their habitat by humans. It is only fitting then, that we try to bring them back. The Lazarus Project tried in 2013. The gastric-brooding frog, also … Continue reading
