Dive-bombing cormorant: Bird yanks suckerfish right off a whale shark's skin.

Fishing is time-consuming business, so diving birds in Mexico's Baja California are frequenting the local "sushi conveyor" instead. That conveyor comes in the hulking shape of the region's reigning big fish: the whale shark. The crafty cormorants have figured out that the giant sharks provide an endless supply of remora sashimi.

Shifting toward a greater understanding of bugs – the good and the bad.

But what has changed too in the past 14 years is our common understanding of insects. Yes, there are still too many people who reduce the insect universe to one of “bugs” that must be annihilated. But gardeners have never been more ecologically minded, and the idea that we must shelter pollinators is now instilled in every grade-schooler, which is all to the good.

Lone Star Ticks: Not Guilty in Spread of Lyme Disease.

The bacteria that cause Lyme disease, the most commonly reported vector-borne illness in the United States, are transmitted to humans primarily by the blacklegged tick (Ixodes scapularis, also known as the deer tick), which is abundant in the eastern United States. Often presumed guilty by association is the lone star tick (Amblyomma americanum), a southern tick species that has spread northward in recent decades. However, a new review of three decades’ worth of research concludes the latter should be exonerated: While lone star ticks are guilty of transmitting bacteria that cause several human illnesses, the scientific evidence says Lyme disease is not one of them.

The unforeseen consequences of killing ‘prize’ animals.

That it’s possible to kill a few select animals without causing much population-level harm is a tenet of wildlife management, guiding everything from trophy hunting to the collection of souvenir beetles. Yet several new studies challenge this conventional wisdom. In a human-dominated world where animals face many stresses, removing even a few creatures may have more far-reaching and complex consequences than expected.

Orcutt pet owners on high alert after several hawk attacks.

ORCUTT, Calif. - Santa Barbara County Animal Services says these birds are moving into residential areas, looking for food.
The recent fires like the Thomas Fire burned off their habitat, forcing them to move.

Orcutt resident Cece Wallace says last week she returned home and found her Chihuahua "Chico" trapped in a hawk's talons.
