Three endangered Sumatran tiger cubs were born last Wednesday at Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium.
Not all kangaroo families liked to hop. Scientists have discovered an ancient kangaroo that lived 100,000 years ago that walked on two legs like a human rather than hopping or lumbering away on all fours.
It's National Fossil Day, which means that we're taking a closer look at these ancient remnants of a time long past.
How does a bird deal with turbulence? The answer may be in their collapsible wings. By placing a "black box" flight recording on an eagle's back, scientists have found how birds manage to deal with turbulent winds.
Scientists may have just pinned down the worst drought in North American history. They've examined the last 1,000 years and found that the drought of 1934 was the driest and most widespread of the last millennium.
Scientists have found that four urban sections of the Sand Andreas Fault system in Northern California have stored enough energy to produce major earthquakes.
What if all of the compasses in the world suddenly pointed south instead of north? Earth's magnetic field periodically flips over time and now, scientists have announced that it's possible for this change to occur over the course of a human lifetime--in less than 100 years.
Archaeologists have made a surprising discovery. They've unearthed the oldest known lamprey fossil to day. The finding could shed light on the ancient origins of the eel-like, blood-sucking lamprey and, in turn, reveal a bit more about the evolution of other animals.
New York City is known for its rats. They can be found in subways, skirting trash bags and skirting building corners. Now, though, scientists have taken a closer look at these rats and have identified bacterial pathogens that these rats may be carrying.
Crocodiles aren't as primitive as some think they are. Scientists have taken a closer look at their hunting tactics and have found that these reptiles can actually work as a team to hunt their prey.
As temperatures rise on our planet, greenhouse gases are mostly to blame. Now, scientists have taken a closer look and have found that the sun affects middle atmosphere ozone, which may have potential implications on smaller scale to regional climate.
As ice sheets melt and sea levels rise, it's more important than ever to accurately estimate how high these levels will be. Now, scientists have come up with a model that forecasts the worst case scenario when it comes to rising sea levels.
