ScienceDaily: Frog and Reptile News
Tourists coming into contact with sea turtles at holiday attractions face a risk of health problems, according to new research.
Scientists say they've discovered the fossilized bones of a new type of pterosaur, a flying dinosaur-age reptile, which lived about 68 million years ago and had a wingspan of nearly 10 feet (3-meters).
Spiders in the genus Zodarian are an ant's worst nightmare. These arachnids sleep during the day in igloo-shaped compartments under rocks and dead wood, but at night emerge to stalk and feed on ants, their sole source of food. Several spiders in the genus (the taxonomic grouping above species) even look like ants.
