See an interactive graphic of orca hunting. In August, we reported that scientists had found a new and unusual species of frog in India's Western Ghats mountain range.
The frog has shiny, purple skin, a light blue ring around its eyes, and a pointy pig-nose. Together, the two make up the only known members of their family. The find comes as part of an effort sponsored by the Indian government to sample the DNA of every frog and toad species in the nation. American alligators gobble up anything they can get their jaws around.

A September study added new items to their menu : sharks and stingrays. It's particularly surprising, says study leader James Nifong , an ecologist at Kansas State University, because alligators are known as freshwater predators. While tracking down a particularly large snake in the swamps of Brazil , photographer Luciano Candisani got more than he'd hoped for: the first known image of a female green anaconda squeezing her mate to death. The reason is simple: The male is good protein for an expecting mother, especially one who fasts the whole seven months of pregnancy, we reported in February.

It was a grisly sight: a murdered chimpanzee , his body beaten, bloodied—and partially cannibalized—by members of his former social group. Researchers who found the gruesome scene in Senegal in knew that chimpanzees are no strangers to lethal violence. The incident— described in January in the International Journal of Primatology and whose aftermath was caught on video—is just the ninth recorded case of a chimpanzee community killing one of its own.

Very informative book on a plethora of subjects. If you like delving into the really odd and weird sometimes, this is the book for you. Thank you,. I'm generally a fan of the "uncle johns" and "stupid history" type factoid-quick-read books. This one didn't quite come up to par.

I think National Geo needs to up their game in terms of a bit more humor and edginess. For something called "tales of the weird" it was a bit too much "discovery channel" documentary in content and tone Yet not quite rigorous enough for that. So in the end it hits an unsatisfying "middle ground" between quirky and funny versus providing meaty content. See all 39 reviews.
