Through a rare mixed-species association observed between a carnivorous predator and a potential prey, Dartmouth-led research has identified that solitary Ethiopian wolves will forage for rodents among grazing gelada monkey herds. Through consistent non-threatening behavior, the Ethiopian wolves have habituated gelada herds to their presence, foregoing opportunities to attack the juvenile geladas in order to better capture the rodents.
India now has a new class of soldiers to tackle animal poachers—wildlife sniffer dogs.
Cambodia is training an elite squad of rats, imported from Africa, to sniff out landmines and other unexploded ordnance in the once war-wracked kingdom, authorities said on Friday.
About 16 million years ago, a giant bat used all four of its limbs to stalk around the subtropical rainforest of modern-day New Zealand, a new study finds.
Sensational images have emerged of the remains of a perfectly-preserved mummified puppy, found sealed in the Siberian permafrost after more than 12,400 years.
While preparing rooms for renovations, workers at Emerson High School in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma uncovered something they didn’t expect. Usually, they find broken pipes and wires but this time they uncovered chalkboards from a century ago, still bearing the lessons and drawings from children and teachers, reports Tim Willert for The Oklahoman.
The archaeological sites of the ancient Roman Empire constitute without rival the most prolific array of ancient architecture and artifacts that can be attributed to any single civilization or culture. Its remains pockmark the Old World landscape from North Africa and Egypt to Hadrian’s Wall in Britain. The artifacts populate museums the world over.
A pre-Adamic global highly evolved united ancient civilization that believed in the oneness of God is shown to have existed from the textual evidence within the Quran, based on an analysis of certain verses that have been deconstructed and examined, with novel insights. Furthermore, recent archeological and textual work is pushing back the dates of ‘ancient civilizations’. This, together with the Quran’s remarkable historical accuracy of archaeologically unknown facts at the time of its advent about 1,400 years ago, is uncovering unexpected facets of our very distant past, with vital implications for our future.
The hieroglyphs on an ancient tomb dating back to a Maya king discovered in Mexico have finally been deciphered, revealing the name of the man buried within more than six decades after the tomb’s initial discovery.

Scientists have provided the first direct experimental evidence for how primordial proteins developed the ability to accelerate the central chemical reaction necessary to synthesize proteins and thus allow life to arise not long after Earth was created.
This historic image shows what could be some of the very first stars to form in the universe.
A robotic "cryobot," designed to tunnel down through thick ice caps and penetrate subterranean seas, is undergoing tests on the Matanuska glacier in Alaska. It paves the way towards one day exploring the underground oceans of Jupiter's moon, Europa, or other icy moons of the Outer Solar System.

Could Mars, of all places, be the place to look for early life on Earth?
Landing humans on Mars won't wreck the search for life on the Red Planet. That's according to researchers who simulated the impact of a crewed mission to a pristine world by driving across the Canadian Arctic.
Those bright mystery spots aren’t the only ones on Ceres. Recent photos posted on JPL’s Photojournal site feature a spectacular rayed crater resembling the familiar lunar craters Kepler and Copernicus.

Scientists at UCL have observed how a widespread polar wind is driving gas from the atmosphere of Saturn's moon Titan. The team analysed data gathered over seven years by the international Cassini probe, and found that the interactions between Titan's atmosphere, and the solar magnetic field and radiation, create a wind of hydrocarbons and nitriles being blown away from its polar regions into space. This is very similar to the wind observed coming from the Earth's polar regions.
Saturn's moon Titan is home to seas and lakes filled with liquid hydrocarbons, but what forms the depressions on the surface? A new study using data from the joint NASA and the European Space Agency (ESA) Cassini mission suggests the moon's surface dissolves in a process that's similar to the creation of sinkholes on Earth.
