The year-long pregnancy of a female sand tiger shark may begin with six or seven embryos in her two wombs, but only one per womb will make it to birth, the CBC reports. Not all prairie dogs merit such dastardly designations, but we know some do, thanks to the tenacious research of John Hoogland, behavioral ecologist at the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science. The team also noticed females going into the burrows of their closest female relatives, and “when they come up, they frequently had some blood on their faces.” Mothers in those burrows stopped showing any signs of maternal behavior. Eventually, after much effort, “we found decapitated babies that had mostly been cannibalized down there,” Hoogland said. Another species, the Utah prairie dog, also eats its young but the behavior is rare or non-existent in other species. Thousands of cane toads await euthanasia by freezing in Cairns, Australia, on March 29, 2009. But it’s not just the kids: A 2008 study found that cane toads waggle the middle toe of their hind foot in a luring display to attract prey, including young toads.
Just because you’re a snake doesn’t mean you won’t end up as a snake snack: Some species of garter snakes and king snakes might eat each other if housed together.
A  2009 study of Mexican lance-headed rattlesnakes showed that 68 percent of new mothers ate all or part of their non-surviving offspring, probably to recover the nutrients needed to reproduce again. Some insects and arachnids practice sexual cannibalism, wherein the female eats the male after mating. The male redback will sacrifice itself to the female by somersaulting onto her mouthparts during sex and can transfer sperm while being consumed. Maydianne Andrade of the University of Toronto Scarborough reported in a 2003 study that males that are cannibalized (which happens 65 percent of the time) mate far longer and produce twice the number of offspring than those that are not.
I once saw a documentary where a new anaconda mother Actually Checked to make sure her young were Definitely dead Before she ate them.
When I worked for a large pet supply store, I used to try to advise them to refrain from housing the Russian hamsters in groups. We’re Moving!As of October 22, 2014, Weird & Wild will be hosted on National Geographic's main news site. The loss of animal species is irreversible and potentially catastrophic, not to mention heartrendingly sad.

A few thumbnail previews are shown below, but you really need to check them out yourself in full resolution, they’re stunning. Guys, that is not a secret, these images are used for screensaver modes, in Apple TV are used for screensaver too. But since I work in the building, I’ve been more than a little distracted when its image comes on screen.
The fake FBI office, for example, is set on a raised platform to make it seem to be several stories above the ground. The backdrop is specially made so it can serve as both daytime and nighttime window dressing.
As geographers, my colleagues and I care about what gives a place its identity, so I asked Mott how he went about creating a sense of place for the show.

The actual FBI headquarters is about a mile and a half from where Mott placed it, and looks out along Pennsylvania Avenue with a view of the Capitol, not across M Street with a view of our building, but there are a lot of tall buildings with rows and rows of glass windows nearby as well, so it works.
Mott also wanted the sets to show the differences between the worlds of the Soviet spies and the American FBI agents.
Of course there is also plenty of action and intrigue happening at the KGB’s Washington headquarters, known as the residentura. Despite all this planning and hard work, the goal of the set, as it is for any spook worth his or her salt, is not to get noticed. National Geographic VoicesResearchers, conservationists, and others around the world share stories and commentary on the National Geographic Society's conversation platform Voices. Society Field Inspection 2016: Gulf of CaliforniaDescribed by Jacques Cousteau as the "aquarium of the world," the Gulf of California in Mexico is threatened by coastal development, climate change, and other human activities.

Two years after being discovered deep in a South African cave, the 1,500 fossils excavated during the Rising Star Expedition have been identified as belonging to a previously unknown early human relative that National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence Lee Berger and team have named Homo naledi.
With at least 15 individuals of all ages and both sexes represented, the find adds an unprecedented amount of information to our understanding of early human evolution in Africa.
In addition, the absence of any other animal remains or large debris in the fossil chamber strongly suggests that these non-human beings intentionally deposited their dead within this cave. BANABA ISLAND, Kiribati—Asbestos dust covers the floors of Banaba’s crumbling colonial houses, buildings, and schools. In Papua New Guinea, a group of initiates is about to enter the final stage of a long and arduous ritual.

The tadpoles of cane toads, which are native to South America, like to dine on cane toad eggs, which they sniff out in the water. In that study the researchers dissected 28 juvenile cane toads and found that 64 percent of their 149 prey items were other cane toads. Check out this video of a copperhead that chomps down on its own tail … after its head has been cut off.
I didn’t find anything about cannibal cats while I was researching but your comments made me curious so I looked around and did, indeed, find references to it online.
A typical animal eats half the day—a full 12 out of every 24 hours—and relieves itself dozens of times a day. But their tenure in paradise is perilously close to its end; only about 1,100 seals remain in the wild.

So I talked with the show’s production designer, John Mott, about our architectural cameo and how he went about recreating the early 80s feel for the critically acclaimed series. Extending the backdrop well below the line of sight out the windows keeps the camera from accidentally revealing that the view is of a static, 80 foot by 16 foot backdrop. For authenticity, it has been scrubbed of anachronistic clutter such as satellite dishes and cell phone transmission equipment.
The back is printed black to block out light, except for the windows, the Washington Monument, and other accents that let light from behind it shine through during the evening scenes.
Interestingly, the FBI building is a Brutalist building, which people associate with the Soviets,” Mott says.

For the Soviet residentura, the show uses an establishing shot of what was the Soviet Embassy in the 1980s but became the Russian ambassador’s residence in 1994.
They also remove inappropriate signage and late model cars, and they replace them with things that have the right look.
Posters and commenters are required to observe National Geographic's community rules and other terms of service. To learn firsthand what's going on in and around this marine treasure of global importance, the National Geographic Society sent its top scientists and officials to the region in January 2016.
It takes 28 pounds (12.5 kilograms) of bamboo to satisfy a giant panda's daily dietary needs, and it hungrily plucks the stalks with elongated wrist bones that function rather like thumbs. Since I recognize our neighboring buildings, I can also see that our headquarters and its surroundings have been reversed, creating a lovely geographic and visual pun for this show. To further fool the viewer’s eye, the whole image is slightly out of focus to make the buildings appear more distant, and the skies are always clear.
They toured the desert islands off the southeastern coast of the Baja Peninsula and they listened to presentations by more than a dozen experts, including several whose Baja California research is funded by the Society.
The nutritious caviar helps them develop and cuts down on future competition, according to a 2011 study from the University of Sydney and James Cook University. Pandas will sometimes eat birds or rodents as well.Behavior and HabitatWild pandas live only in remote, mountainous regions in central China. So what does it take to get things right, to make a modern place look old and make a fake place look real?
It just takes one image to get someone’s attention."Nicklen has indeed managed to get people’s attention.
They may climb as high as 13,000 feet (3,962 meters) to feed on higher slopes in the summer season.Pandas are often seen eating in a relaxed sitting posture, with their hind legs stretched out before them.
Whether he is ice diving among leopard seals in Antarctica, covering hundreds of miles of terrain in minus 40°F temperatures, or mastering aerial shots from his ultralight plane, Paul Nicklen has specialized in photographing polar regions since 1995. They may appear sedentary, but they are skilled tree-climbers and efficient swimmers.Breeding and PopulationGiant pandas are solitary.
A unique childhood among the Inuit in Canada’s Arctic and a professional background as a biologist in the Northwest Territories enable him to take on the most inhospitable places on our planet.
They have a highly developed sense of smell that males use to avoid each other and to find females for mating in the spring.
His images reflect a reverence for the creatures inhabiting these isolated and endangered environments, and he hopes to generate global awareness about wildlife issues through his work.Nicklen has published eleven stories for National Geographic magazine, including 2011’s August cover story on the elusive spirit bear.
After a five-month pregnancy, females give birth to a cub or two, though they cannot care for both twins.

They are born white, and develop their much loved coloring later.There are an estimated 1,600 giant pandas left in the wild.
More than 300 pandas live in breeding centers and zoos, where they are always among the most popular attractions. Much of what we know about pandas comes from studying these zoo animals, because their wild cousins are so rare and elusive.
