Scientists may have discovered the origins of spider and centipede venom. They've found that the venom evolved from an insulin-like hormone, similar to what can be found in humans.
For the first time ever, scientists have witnessed polar bears preying not on seals, but on dolphins. The new findings may indicate that these species may be adapting to climate change.
Dogs may be able to interpret human body language far better than scientists expected-but only with training. Researchers have found that dogs follow human gaze cues when trained to do so.
Scientists have taken a closer look at the epic migration of the blue whale. Using DNA profiling and photo identification, researchers may have solved the mystery of where these giant animals go to breed.
Calming down excited neighbors isn't too difficult. In fact, it's actually contagious for some creatures, including woodlice, an isopod crustacean with a rigid, segmented long exoskeleton and fourteen jointed limbs.

Learning how plants survive droughts is crucial for the future. As our planet warms, more droughts may mean failed harvests.
Researchers have taken a closer look at these hummingbird-sized hawkmoths to find out what obstacles they have to overcome while feeding on nectar at night.
How would genetically modified fish impact an ecosystem? What happened if they escaped? Now, scientists are examining what would happen if genetically modified fish escaped into wild populations.
Imagine seeing one of the largest creatures in the sea: the massive, great white shark. Now imagine giving that shark a high-five and living to tell the tale; that's exactly what one diver did off of the coast of Mexico.
How do wild mongooses avoid inbreeding? That's a good question.
Scientists have revealed the first ever continuous, two or more-year satellite tagging tracks for tiger sharks
