Inimicus (lat. Inimicus) are a family of marine ray-finned fishes scorpionfish (Scorpaenidae). Scientists know ten kinds of inimicus. Reaching a length of 25 cm, they have a large head and body, covered with scales only in fragments. Inimicus feed on the worms and crustaceans, attacking them from ambush — buried in the sand or hiding under a rock. in the summer of 2017 diving instructor Vitaly Bazarov took inimicus walking along the bottom of the Gulf of Aqaba. So do many scorpionfish fish: they usually have a benthonic life, because their pectoral fins help in the search for food and when moving along the bottom. Inexperienced swimmers should stay off of inimicus away: they have near the spines of the dorsal fin are the glands that produce a deadly...

In the waters on the planet lives thousands of species of animals, and most of them still not opened. The longest among those known to modern man, are worms and jellyfish. The number of record for the length of the body — discomedusae hairy cyanea (lat. Cyanea capillata). She lives in the surface layers of water near the shores of all Northern seas. And although usually the lanei do not grow more than 50-60 cm known species, reaching up to 36.5 metres in length with the diameter of the "cap" 2.3 metres. After science has begun to use sophisticated submersibles to explore the World's oceans, a list of the longest animals joined pelagic flowing down Praya dubia, or the giant siphonophore. It is not a single organism, but a huge colony of interconnected tiny...

When horses snort, they don't just clean the nose from dust, and Express positive emotions. To such conclusion the French scientists, who published an article in PLoS ONE. The emotional state of the animals is not so easy to define unambiguously. As markers of physiological and behavioral cues can give conflicting results. some studies have established a link between the acoustic signals of the horse and her emotions, but directly to associate something with positive emotions was not possible. For some members of the squad Equids (Perissodactyla), such as Rhino, with positive emotions has previously been associated snort, so the authors of a new study have suggested that such a relationship is possible and for horses. Hitherto it was believed that snort...

A Few days ago user under the name Sgt_Soggybottoms published on the website Reddit story about the fact that he saw something unusual on mount beacon (new York). "I work as an engineer networks and a couple of years ago somewhere between 9 and 10 p.m. they called me and said that there is a problem in one of the transmitters at a distance she did not dare, and therefore an urgent need to check it manually. the Main problem was that this transmitter is located at the top of local mountains and beacon to this point to go for an hour. When I and my boss got there, it was nearly midnight and I was a little creepy. The road that ran from the foot of the mountain to the top was very bad, it was unpaved and with lots of ruts, our car was constantly jumped on...

Fancy colorful sea creatures found in the continental displacement at a depth of 2 km from the recently Concluded mission for deep-sea study of the South-Eastern coast of the United States has opened up many creatures not seen before. Scientists examined the massive underwater continental drift, known as Carritxo landslide. in Addition to the common area bildukevich and zelenoglazaya fish scientists have discovered aerosolului fish hermaphrodite at a depth of 1.7 km, as well as new representatives hydroid and anemone. The district was also spotted sunfish (sunfish) and "deep-water dumpling" — sepiolid, relatively close to the cuttlefish. Recently a new species of sea creature was discovered off the coast Indonesia...

Dinosaurs-sauropodomorpha began to increase in size by about 30 million years earlier than paleontologists believed, says Nature Ecology&Evolution;. To such conclusion the Argentinian scientists who found the partial skeletons of several reptiles and described a new genus and species sauropodomorph, as well as some already well-known lizards of the genus Lessemsaurus. they Have already started to receive the anatomical features characteristic of the largest representatives of the sauropods that lived during the late Triassic period, approximately 210-205 million years ago. In the second half of the Triassic period (237-201 million years ago), a new terrestrial groups of dinosaurs that occupied various ecological niches. One of the most successful...

On the man and he lives inside of several trillions of microorganisms, without which would immunity, digestion has stopped, significantly decreased brain activity. Depends on the weight, the smell and the mental health of man. How microbes control the people and why they survive. the human genome 21 thousand genes — roughly the same as the round worm Caernorhabditis elegans (20.5 thousand genes), and significantly less than the "water flea" Daphnia Daphnia (31 thousand genes). But, unlike homo sapiens, none of the animals can't talk and it's hard to think. Unique human abilities are determined by including its microbiota the collection of microorganisms that inhabit all tissues of the body, notes the book "10% Human. How microbes control the people," the...

As reported by Linda Godfrey - the researcher voskopodobnoe monsters, this incident occurred in Michigan in February 2009. The employee of law enforcement Laura Love riding in the car on highway 31 with his girlfriend. it Was 11.30 PM and was quite dark, but the headlights of their car well-lit road and the rider in front of pickup women was also clearly visible. "We went a bit quiet and chatted about their Affairs. The road itself was mostly clear of ice and snow on it. The weather was cold, but the snow did not fall and was a cloudless night. all of a Sudden we noticed how high the dark figure flashed from the left side of the road and fell under the wheels of a pickup truck, then the truck bounced and swerved, clearly moved this figure. Be it a normal...

Whale sharks, the largest fish in the world, actively travel through the water, overcoming thousands of kilometers. But scientists have noticed that in the world there are about 20 places where they prefer to gather in flocks sometimes exceeding 50 individuals. For a long time experts did not know why sharks prefer specific locations off the coast of Australia, Belize, Mildew and Mexico. Experts from the universities of Salford and York have compared the underlying indices are popular meeting places for whale sharks, reports ScienceAlert. It turned out that they all have similar characteristics: this is the shallows, adjacent to sharp breaks (drops from 200 to 1000 m). For a space sharks have two main reasons: they are rich in food and plankton, in which...

Toad Ansonia smeago, received its Latin name in honor of the hobbit sméagol, whose magic Ring turned into a slippery and strange creature that lives in the mountains of Malaysia. It was first described in the year 2016; at the same time zoologists have given it a name — for the love of water, long fingers and big eyes. Two years later, the toad skidded into the red list of threatened species the International Union for conservation of nature. If the Malaysian authorities will not stop the expansion of the territory of the hotels in the country may not be forests, suitable habitat for A. smeago, warn environmentalists. Toad-Gollum — endemiki one of the mountains, and therefore very vulnerable...

One of the missions of the National oceanic and atmospheric administration (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, NOAA) ship Okeanos Explorer conducted from 20 April to 10 July 2016. The aim of the study was the deepest ocean trench. It stretches along the Mariana Islands in the 1500 kilometers, has a V-shaped profile: steep slopes and a flat bottom width of 1-5 km, which is divided by sills into several closed depressions. At the bottom of the water pressure reaches 108,6 MPa, which is approximately 1,072 times greater than normal atmospheric pressure at the level of the World ocean. The deepest point of the Mariana trench, the "Challenger Deep", lies at around 10 994 m below sea level. Professionals working on the Okeanos Explorer, is lowered a...

Many small spiders can move from place to place by air. Frozen without movement, they release the web threads, which catches the wind and carries, together with the owner. Even Darwin, catching some of these travelers deep sea, wondered how this happens. He noticed that the silk thread is not tangled and like repel each other, and suggested: it somehow uses electricity. However, this assumption seemed too incredible, and, as a rule, scientists met more simple theories, explaining the flight of spiders the usual planning in the air flow. However, the new job Erica Morley (Erica Morley) and her fellow researchers from the University of Bristol gives a new breath to the inspiration of Darwin. The results of its scientists report in an article published in the...

American crows (Corvus brachyrhynchos) and northwestern crows (C. caurinus) attack superior size common ravens (corvus C.) in 97 percent of interspecific conflicts, found researchers from the US and Canada, which analyzed more than two thousand observations of birdwatcher in North America. In an article published in the journal the Auk: Ornithological Advances, it is reported that the number of conflicts is higher in the breeding season and often they happen with the participation of whole groups, not individuals. Interspecific conflicts are not uncommon among social animals. In particular, quite often clash birds: they can either defend their territory or much more — to fight for food. Another reason for the conflicts of the birds finding a suitable...

Venomous Scorpions are great parents. In Indian national Park Simlipal was made of rare footage, the female of the black Scorpion carries on his back the cubs, reports NDTV. The cubs of the black Scorpion live in the back of the mother during the first two to three weeks, while they will not grow in their own exoskeleton. In the same litter can be up to 100 kids. Black Scorpions known that their venom is a deadly threat to cheloveka. https://www.moya-planeta.ru/news/view/redkaya_fotografiya_chernogo_skorpiona_byla_sdelana_v_indii_40373/

Enigmatic dog of the Indians were not domesticated wolves as previously thought, scientists, and "cousins" Siberian huskies. They migrated to America together with the owners still in the ice age, say Russian and international genetics in an article published in the journal Science. "we All know that the natives of North America have suffered greatly from genocide, directly or indirectly caused by the European colonists. We have shown that the fate of their dogs were even worse – all their genetic traces, with the exception of "contagious" cancer, completely gone, cause that was a sharp cultural change and disease," said Ripan the Malham (Ripan Malhi) from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (USA). it is believed that man domesticated dogs in the...
