According to city authorities, the bats began to appear in the city due to global warming causing the expansion of thermophilic species in the North. Previously they were not here. This opinion was expressed to RIA Novosti news Agency the head of the Moscow Department of nature use and environmental protection Anton Kulbachevsky. "We track how climate change affects people and animals that live in the city. For example, we actively cooperate with CPS, doctors who study the environment and climate with human health. As for the animals, now there is global warming, and begin migration of different species. For example, there were bats, which previously was difficult to see in Moscow", — said Kulbachevsky. in addition to bats in Moscow in recent years began to...

In the evergreen forests of Guinea and Liberia, the scientists discovered a new species of snake that can poison the victim without even opening your mouth. Caution — we have a photo of what it looks like the affected limb Is an unusual ability unique to the members of the family Atractaspidinae, long fangs, which can protrude from the corners of the mouth of the animal, allowing him to stab the victim side movements of the neck. Combine this with their ability to travel great distances and you have a formidable enemy, a threat to the veteran Herpetology. Experts from the Berlin Museum of natural history on his own sad example, I was convinced that to take up such serpents is with great care. When researchers first met this snake in the woods of Liberia...

9 years ago from the frozen shores of the Laptev sea (North of Yakutia) dug up the remains of a young mamontiha – and has named her Yuka (in honor of the indigenous people-the Yukaghirs, who found the mummy). However, the Yukaghirs were not the first: for 28 000 years, the body was laid in the ground, they were interested in primitive people and animals. First left on animal cuts and the second teeth marks and claws. except for a few missing bones, the body of baby mammoth perfectly preserved – including the brain and light red fur. During the life of the mammoth was about 165 cm at withers and two metres in length (excluding the length of the trunk and tail). Yuka also weighed almost half a ton. But the preserved DNA of the animal? Recently biologists from...

Every year, scientists discover thousands of new species. But in some cases they fail to advance further descriptions of randomly encountered individuals. Researchers are not able to provide holotype — type specimens of animals or clear image. And the situation when the existence of a new kind of known, but to learn it not, do not change over the years. Five stories about how scientists hunt elusive animals. Pocket shark Small, not more than 40 cm long gray-brown shark Parin (Mollisquama parini), inhabiting the Pacific ocean, known only by two specimens, and they fell into the hands of researchers quite by accident. First, in 1979, the Soviet scientists found the adult female of this animal, examining the catch of the vessel "Andrew". The second individual...

Corn foliage cutworms (Spodoptera frugiperda) is triumphant throughout Thailand and neighboring countries. Cheeky bites and corn, and the appetite of its caterpillars is very good. Source this insect were carried out in North America. It slightly annoyed the local farmers, but at home have shovels were familiar enemies, who in different ways had used caterpillars for food, not allowing them to become butterflies and multiply. as a result, the population remained more or less stable — much like the cabbage in the European part of Russia. In 2016, the insect was discovered in Africa. Apparently, it got there a few years earlier, because by the time of the study it was found already half of fields of corn, sorghum, and millet. Then the butterflies drifted in...

A Group of scientists from the Institute of marine Microbiology max Planck found that bacteria can use for growth as the environment in the nitric oxide(II) — NO. Previously it was thought that this environment is not suitable for life, and bacteria growing on NO, were not found. The study was published in the journal Nature Communications. nitric Oxide (NO) is a versatile molecule. Nitric oxide is a key mediator in the secondary organisms vertebrates and plays an important role in intercellular and intracellular signal transmission and, as a consequence, in many biological processes. Also, this molecule destroys the ozone layer in the atmosphere of our planet and is a precursor of nitrous oxide (N2O), which has the properties of a greenhouse gas. In...

In 2016, the 18-year-old Australian Ricky McKinsey vacationing in the sparsely populated region in the North of the country, in the Kimberly region. There he met (and took video) remarkable reptiles – frilled lizard. According to a young man he previously met these reptiles and it is in any case not planned to cause the animal harm, however the lizard found his enemy, and rushed to the attack. Plasencia lizards (Chlamydosaurus kingii) belong to the family of agamid (Agamidae). These reptiles are up to 100 cm feed on insects, spiders, small mammals and bird eggs. A distinctive feature of this lizard is a big vorotnikovsky skin fold; she needed to protect themselves from predators – dogs, dingoes, snakes or large birds. In the case of danger, the reptile...

Brazilian scientists have discovered that odor exhaled by some amphibians, comes, actually, from the bacteria living on the skin of frogs. This fragrance allows individuals to find a couple. The results of the study published in the journal PNAS. Symbiotic microorganisms play a key role in many aspects of life of different groups of animals. Bacteria root nodules of legumes share with the plants with nitrogen that they fix from the atmosphere. Flagellates inhabiting termites are in the cytoplasm of bacteria, which allow them to degrade the cellulose and translate malosedobnaya product in a completely digestible form. Symbiotic bacteria of intestinal tract of humans provide us with vitamin K and stimulate the immune system of the body. These symbiotic...

In Australia accidentally opened a dinosaur of a new species: the fossils found opals dealer, bought the rough stones of the development of UI Warr at lightning ridge. The area to the East of Australia (New South Wales) is extremely rich in opals (in particular, the rare black). More than 100 million years ago there was an inland sea. Subsequently it disappeared, and the remains of animals that were found on its shores, petrified: the place of the destroyed bone tissue formed silicon compounds. So there was a "opalinereverie fossils" that they find the miners. In 2013, trader Mike Poben (Mike Poben) noticed among the newly bought stones a couple of very unusual specimens, resembling a jaw with teeth. He contacted the scientists, and the suspicion was...

Naturalists from Germany and the Netherlands found in the ocean are bacteria capable of feeding on nitrogen monoxide, a gas that were previously considered completely inedible to all creatures. The description and possible mechanisms of influence on global warming was presented in the journal Nature Communications. "This discovery radically changes our understanding of the process of the nitrogen cycle on Earth. In the past, we thought that nitrous oxide is toxic to all organisms, however, we have now discovered that at least one bacteria that feed on ammonia, is able to extract energy from the gas, turning it into pure nitrogen," says Boran Kartal (Kartal, Boran) from the Institute of marine Microbiology in Bremen (Germany). Today there are countless...

To better understand how and they could hear the dinosaurs, scientists have put a very unusual experiments. "Pumped" their modern relatives — the alligators — a powerful anesthetic, they put on headphones and play different natural sounds, recording processing of sound signals by the brain. The article Luca Kettler (Kettler Lutz) and Katrina Carr (Catherine Carr) published in The Journal of Neuroscience. For the orientation in space of animals (especially nocturnal) are actively hearing what they need to be able to quickly and accurately localize the sources of ambient sounds. A major role is played interiorally delay is a slight difference in time of arrival of the signal in the left and right ear: it gives the hearing "stereophonically", allowing to...

Scientists from Russia and Japan for the first time received the biologically active cells of a fossil animal-based material was found in Yakutia, mammoth Yuki – this will help to understand the mechanisms of evolution and the causes of extinction of mammoths, but to clone an animal is unlikely, according to the publication, Siberian branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences "Science in Siberia". the Young mammoth, named Yuka, was found in 2011 on the shore of the Laptev sea in Ust-yanskiy district of Yakutia. His body was lying in the permafrost, so well preserved up to our days: soft tissue, brain, skin not affected by rot, and coat — bright red color that is characteristic of mammoths. Scientists using mass spectrometer analyzed bone marrow and muscle...

Remember the old movie "Ghostbusters"? In this homegrown group of parapsychologists are struggling with Zuula, or Suhl, horned and tailed demon of the Ancient East. People whose bodies possessed monster, proclaiming: "There is only one Zuul!". But scientists have found his double among dinosaurs. Fossil Zuul revealed to the world the most complete remains of ankylosauria – armoured dinosaur with bony armor and powerful tail, found in North America. Zuul perfectly preserved bone flaps survived directly on the skin, there are even traces of soft tissues. On the side were scars, evidence of fights with other ankylosaurs. "On this, nobody even dreamed of!" – admitted to David Evans, a paleontologist at the Royal Ontario Museum. Perfect preservation the Stuff a...

Sokolov ― Hello, Arseniy! A. Vesnin ― Today will deal with the myth about Bigfoot. It turns out that still there are people who believe he exists. Moreover, looking for him. Before the program I watched – put the video as they see these...

An American Bigfoot researcher Linda Godfrey several years corresponded with a woman named "Susie" (a pseudonym) from Maine, who as a child spoke with a family of Bigfoot (Yeti). In 2017, Godfrey was able to interview this woman, where she recounts her story. It started in the late 60-ies, when Susie, who was then seven years old, met near his house a large adult Bigfoot, to whom she gave the name of the PSA (Wabou), and two little Bigfoot, probably his children. Susie actively communicated with the Bigfoot family for several years, until about the early 70-ies, after which their meetings have become much more rare. Private house of the family of Susie stood on the shore of a small lake and once the girl began to find on the shore someone crushed or broken...
