    This is a slow motion video from a Topvogel falconry show in Diessen, Netherlands of a Harris' hawk demonstrating its ability to navigate narrow gaps by flying between two people standing head to head (who look like two lovebirds themselves, HIYO!). Thank God that wasn't the W... / Continue →

    This is all over the news right now but I don't really understand why because I've known about gliding-lizards (not to mention Komodos) forever. Sure I was an amateur herpetologist growing up and have never had a girl in my bedroom, but one time two of my sister's friends stoo... / Continue →

    In an experiment that helps prove some birds are smarter than they'd look in the bottom of a KFC bucket, a British rook was able to make a tool (hook) in order to accomplish a task (score worms). Allegedly, this puts them on par with monkeys and toddlers. But I haven't seen a... / Continue →

    Nokia recently held a promotion encouraging designers to make a pair of headphones inspired by their favorite song. The set above is entitled 'I'm Flying' and was (no joke) created in honor of R Kelly's "I Believe I can Fly", which I am now declaring a euphemism for peeing on ... / Continue →
