At Loggerheads, It's A Shell Game For Turtles Who Lack Social Networking

The act of turtles burying their heads in their shell was interpreted in idiom as the need to "come out of one's shell"-- or to become more sociable and less shy. While this reptile's shell makes a lot of sense in providing a protective shield from its enemies, there might be another reason for its existence. My thought is that turtles lack the social network from birth that most other species are accustomed to.

Barney The Dog Has A Flintstones' Moment, Eats Pebbles

Barney the chocolate Labrador retriever loves to go for long walks on the beach in Chessington, Surrey, England with his mom and dad, Kim and Andrew Woolland. One day last year the trio went for a walk along the shore in Kent and since they were alone, the Woollands took Barney off his lead to let him run.

Dell Computers' Alternate Universe: Toad, Rabbit & Bird Commute To Work [Videos]

To date, I've posted several stories pertaining to animals in the workplace. But today, I focus on the creative genius of Young & Rubicam NY whose imaginative TV commercial titled, "Meet Thomas: Creator of an Alternate Universe." In a touching one-minute vignette, this agency unfolds a Walter Mitty type of tale about a commuter who daydreams about writing the Great American graphic novel.

Crocodile Sighting Along The Thames

Folks in Reading, Berkshire in England have been in a bit of a kerfuffle lately over reported sightings of a crocodile or alligator in the Thames River. The large reptile was reportedly spotted as recently as last week by a man out for a spin on his bicycle. The same man also believes he spotted the creature last summer. Rumors have been spreading despite the assurances from authorities that neither alligators not crocodiles could survive in the cold waters of the Thames.

Sweet Service: Diabetic Alert Dogs

One of the many side effects of the obesity epidemic in the United States is the increasing number of people dealing with Type II diabetes. Type I diabetics tend not to be obese, their bodies just stop producing insulin. With either type, the disease puts its sufferers into a balancing act between their blood sugar being too high or too low. Either is dangerous and must be dealt with immediately. While most diabetics are able to detect the changes in their bodies so that they can take action, others are not. A diabetic alert dog can notify these people when their blood sugar is dangerously high or low.

Scientists Discover The Remains Of An Arctic Camel

The camels we are familiar with today are well known as denizens of the desert. That makes it all the more surprising that 3.5 million years ago giant camels roamed the high arctic. Scientists led by Natalia Rybczynski from the Canadian Museum of Nature have discovered the fossilized remains of a giant camel on Ellesmere Island in northern Canada.
