Unknown animal brutally killed rabbits on the farm on the outskirts of Baymak. It seems that in Bashkiria started again the Chupacabra. To such conclusion came the inhabitants of Baymak, when he discovered that someone brutally killed their rabbits. the author of the photos writes: "It happened tonight. Something opened the bottom door of the cell and pulled animals. Perhaps, to open the upper are unable. The whole night the dog burst into barking, but we are not out on the street. Don't know what happened. It is not drinking the blood of carcasses, just snapped the rabbits neck. And one of them tore off the head and feet," writes the owner of frightened rabbits. However, many of the users of the social network are sure that the focus of the opening of the...

Cause unusual color of the feathers and the eye — albinism, congenital absence of the pigment melanin, which gives color to skin, hair, rainbow and pigment shells eyes. In the natural habitat of animals-albinos are extremely difficult to survive: they stand out against the fields and forests, differ from their relatives in the first place attract the attention of predators. in addition, in some types of albinism visual acuity is reduced. About the owl — the hero video is unknown. Judging by the presence of cells, it is someone's pet. Thus, the bird at least is not facing the threats that lay in wait for her in the wild. http://www.nat-geo.ru/nature/863249-video-sova-s-yarko-krasnymi-glazami/

Biologists with the Okeanos Explorer, a ship of the National oceanic and atmospheric administration, has studied the depths of the sea in the territory of American Samoa in the Pacific ocean. There they found a huge amount of strange and amazing creatures, again reminding us how little people know about the oceanic fauna. On the sea territory of American Samoa are three marine reserve: rose Atoll, national Park of American Samoa and the national marine sanctuary of American Samoa. They protect long coral reefs, deep reefs, hydrothermal vents and even archaeological relics. "During the expedition we saw dozens of new species of starfish, sponges, corals and molluscs, samples some we took," says Santiago Herrera, a member of the expedition. But one of the...

Biologists studied the structure, giving the beetle Pachyrrhynchus congestus pavonius color all colors of the rainbow. It turned out that this insect uses unusual for other animals a mechanism similar to that which is known only from marine cephalopods. The results of the work described in the journal Small. the Elytra of many beetles possess a color, typically in one or two colors, which is achieved due to orientation of the chitin plates of the same size and shape at different angles. The light is refracted, which also explains the changing colors of many beetles when viewed from different angles. In the new work, biologists have investigated bright spots on the integument of the beetle Pachyrrhynchus congestus pavonius by x-ray diffraction and scanning...

Famous fungus that turns ants into an obedient zombie, gave scientists a number of surprises. It turned out that he literally grows into the body of an insect and devours its cells, making the ant a kind of "cold armor". The Brazilian ants carpenters, and the already difficult life supplements very strange thing — they can turn into a very real zombies. This is due to the infection of a parasitic fungus, whose spores germinate in the insect's body and affect the sympathetic nervous system. Infected with the parasite, the ant leaves the comfort of his home nest and sent to wander in the woods, the terms of which are more suitable for fungus to full maturation. Usually the ant clinging paws for the underside of the leaf, and then freezes, thereby permanently...

Biologists conducted the first large-scale analysis of how changing the height of the dwelling about a thousand living in the mountain species of plants, insects and animals. It turned out that a temperature increase of 1 °C causes them to rise on average another 100 meters higher. This reduces the habitat and hence the size of the population. "the Most studied mountain species responds to climate warming, rising higher and higher, to where are stored the cooler conditions of life, — commented the results of the work of its lead author Benjamin Freeman of the University of British Columbia (Canada). As this movement to the tops of mountains available for the habitat area becomes smaller. This confirms the prediction that global warming could cause the...

Studies were carried out in the Peruvian-Chilean, or Facescom chute. Its length is 5,900 km, width — from 30 to 90 km and with a depth of 8 meters 069 this Pacific basin is a bit lower than the Mariana trench (10 994 meters). One of the goals of the expedition to the bottom of the gutter was to collect information on lipanovich fish, also known as sea slugs (lat. Liparidae). Is a family of marine ray-finned fish that inhabits the vast depths. Externally, they differ from other deep-sea fish: small translucent body has no scales, their teeth are unusually small, but leprosie perfectly adapted to life under high pressure: their bones are extremely durable. However, if sea slug to bring to the surface, his bones would soften, and the body will turn to jelly...

Beetles-blister beetles-shirts frantzeskaki (Meloe franciscanus), which are parasitic on bees, adapted to the kind hosts, who dwells there, where the bugs stated in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Larvae from separate populations of beetles native to Oregon and in the Mojave desert, in the same area together with bees Habropoda miserabilis and Habropoda pallida, respectively, to attract the males, learned how to produce pheromones of females of a particular species of bees. Flightless beetles Meloe franciscanus live in North America. They are parasitic earth-the bees — females lay more than 700 eggs from which larvae hatch at the same time. They all climb onto the tall grass, forming a single cluster, and both produce pheromones...

In the mountains of Thailand, biologists have found and described a new species of Tokoroa chesnochnitse — tailless amphibians of the genus Leptobrachium. Scientists assume that the animal can live in the neighboring district of Myanmar. The results are published in the journal PeerJ. the Horned spadefoot toad — like frogs and toads is a family owned unit beshvostym amphibians. They live in tropical forests of Southeast Asia and are able to disguise themselves well. Thanks to the color and texture of the surface behind these amphibians are difficult to distinguish from fallen leaves, tree bark or stones. Tomcoralie spadefoot toad is a small genus of the family and chesnochnitsy, which included, until recently, 35 species. During a scientific expedition in...

Whales of the suborder of baleen (lat. Mysticeti) are among the largest living organisms. They are not the longest on the planet: this record belongs to mushrooms and fish, but the blue whale with the most famous figures of 33 meters and 160 tons of much superior to all other mammals. Paleontological discoveries indicate that marine mammals before land began to increase its size in the process of evolution. However, the ancestors of whales were still less than now. What made these animals to grow not exactly known. According to one hypothesis, it is needed for protection from sharks and other predators. If so, the strategy worked: the blue and other large whales natural enemies in nature, with the exception of killer whales that attack in packs. the New...

Biologists have found that depends on the diversity of organisms in the waters of Spitsbergen. This is particularly important in the context of global warming, because over the last 40 years on the island due to global warming have formed many new lakes. The results published in the journal Polar Biology. Arctic ecosystems are extremely sensitive to climate change. Global warming heats up lakes and ponds, the whole flora of the region is growing and blooming longer. Climate affects Arctic ecosystem and indirectly: increases the number of birds, such as geese, whose droppings enrich the environment with mineral nutrients. This, in turn, causes change, and biogeochemical nutrient cycle. most of the lakes of the Svalbard glacial origin and are either in boggy...

Researchers from the University of California at Santa Cruz (USA) for example patentably iguanas (Uta stansburiana) showed how the Baldwin effect. The paper was published in the journal Current Biology. In 1896, the psychologist James Baldwin proposed a theory that organisms endowed with phenotypic plasticity. If a change in the external appearance or behaviour of the individual increased his chances of survival in a new environment, those changes with high probability will be fixed in the offspring of the individual. To check this assertion biologists have studied 104 individuals patentable iguanas. They took two populations of lizards are fair — skinned and dark-skinned. Latest live near the crater and the Pisgah (Pisgah Crater) and developed a black...

Cockroaches still live in many houses and apartments, carrying pathogenic organisms that can cause dysentery, Staphylococcus, asthma. These insects are active year round, moving quickly, and overcome any obstacles. What attracts them and how to get rid of them — in the material RIA Novosti. there are Cockroaches on the Ground more than two hundred million years. Of more than four thousand species, about fifty are found in human dwellings. These are called synanthropic cockroaches. In Russia usual seven commensal species. Most red (cockroaches), black and American cockroaches. Recently the European part of the country meet the furniture and Australian species, and on the southern and Eastern boundaries of good root and Japanese Turkestan cockroaches. More...

English fisherman scared the Loch ness monster suddenly moved from a Scottish lake. An eyewitness has shared images of a plesiosaur in the water of Newcastle. A mysterious relative of the Loch ness monster showed itself in a lake near the British city. According to the portal Daily Star, the Englishman saw a creature with a long neck, he is familiar with the stories of the Scottish dweller of the depths. Faced with him closely, a witness was scared, but found courage to do a few shots. the Man is sure that the plesiosaur of Loch ness somehow teleported to another lake. Published online images found considerable response among commentators. Some really see in frames evidence of the existence on Earth of a prehistoric water reptile, which some consider the...

Snakes often bite in the rain and not during a drought, as previously thought, found the authors of a study published in the journal Clinical Toxicology. American scientists have analyzed the statistics of cases at the California service under the control of poisoning over the last 20 years and found that when precipitation increases by 10 percent, the number of snake bites have increased by 3.9 percent. There is a widespread belief (1, 2) that snakes often bite during a drought, but not in rainy weather. The number of rodents and small birds — the main food of these reptiles — this time falling, and snakes have to actively look for prey. In addition, part of the ponds dries up and it also forces snake to travel more. American doctors under the guidance of...
