Astronomers have spotted a galaxy that didn't just swallow another galaxy, but is now growing
Scientists have uncovered a strange, otherworldly creature that once lived half a billion years ago. This nightmarish, work-like animal had legs, spikes and a head difficult to distinguish from its tail.
Researchers have analyzed size data for rodents worldwide and have found that rodents are 17 times more likely to evolve to nightmarish proportions on islands than elsewhere.
When it comes to one particular type of star, "hot" doesn't even begin to explain how heated it becomes. Now, scientists have discovered the reason why small, unusually hot blue stars rise to scorching temperatures.
Could monkeys have "pet" wolves? Scientists have taken a closer look at the relationship between Ethiopian wolves and gelada monkeys and have found that even though the monkeys are prey, the wolves don't attack them.
It turns out that at least one early European had a close Neanderthal ancestor.
Scientists have uncovered the fossilized remains of an ancient, massive bat species that walked on four limbs and was three times larger than today's average bat.
Chimps and bonobos are closely related, but one may be better at using tools than the other. Scientists have found that chimpanzees innately know how to use tools while bonobos don't.
Evolution may be to blame for a certain agricultural pest that began plaguing apple growers in the 1850s.
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.
How does elevation impact evolution? That's exactly what scientists have asked themselves as they've examined the mammals of the ancient past.
