Closest Living Relative to the Dodo Bird Dazzles with Vibrant Iridescent Plumage

Known as the Nicobar pigeon, this rare creature is the closest living connection to the famous flightless bird, although the two don’t look alike. One striking difference is the Nicobar pigeon’s vibrant plumage that shines in iridescent blues, coppers, and greens—in addition to its reddish legs and sm

Wildlife Photographer Raises Awareness for Lion Conservation With Beautiful Portraits [Interview]

Los Angeles-based wildlife photographer Simon Needham takes stunning portraits of different animals to raise awareness of endangered species and encourage conservation efforts.

Starlings Captured Forming A Murmuration In The Shape Of A Huge Bird By This Irish Photographer

In the movie Finding Nemo, a school of fish snapped into a formation that resembled a much larger fish. Photographer James Crombie caught that sort of thing happening in real life; however, instead of a flock of fish, he managed to catch a flock of starlings over Lough Ennell in County Westmeath, Ireland in a truly magical sight. James Crombie was recently named photographer of the year by the

Wildlife Photographer Captures A ‘Never Before Seen’ 1-In-146k Yellow Penguin

As we have witnessed ourselves time and time again, nature is full of surprises. Whether it’s a wild owl deciding to sit on your head, stumbling upon a pink manta ray, managing to snap the ‘perfect timing’ kind of solar eclipse, or finding a dwarf giraffe, nature never ceases to amaze us with its beauty and uniqueness. This time around, it’s in the vein of animals that are not the c

Curious Test Reveals Dogs May Have a Special Ability We Didn’t Know About Before

Dogs might not be able to recognise themselves in a mirror, but that doesn't mean our pets don't have some level of self-awareness. Recent research has shown dogs can recognise the unique smell of their own odour, sort of like looking in an 'olfactory mirror', and now a new study suggests they might also have some awareness of their body as an obstacle. Body awareness is the ability to think

Photographer Captures Adorable Laughing Dormouse Perched on a Flower

Spring is just around the corner. And if our excitement were to be summed-up in one image, it would be this one. The Laughing Dormouse by Andrea Zampatti was chosen as a winner of the On Land category in the 2017 Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards, and it’s easy to see why. The tiny field mouse is captured beaming with happiness as it perches on a flower. It’s impossible not to smile back at t

Clicking With Nature: A Virtual Tour of Tanzania’s Beautiful Serengeti National Park (PHOTOS)

As the novel coronavirus pandemic threw the world into utter chaos—shutting-down countries and bringing normal human lives to a standstill—an unexpected silver lining arrived in the form of temporary freedom these lockdowns offered the wildlife. With humans quarantined in their own homes, nature was handed a free reign, and several animal species were spotted wandering the otherwise bustli

Humans Have Left Some Cat Breeds With Grimaces Forever Stuck on Their Faces

It's no accident that cats are adorable: We've selectively bred them across generations for maximum cuteness. But that breeding has a downside: It's left some of our feline friends with permanent frowny faces that cannot show emotions. In particular, new research published in December in the journal Frontiers of Veterinary Science suggests that selective breeding for the "brachycephalic," or fl
