Animal Articles - September 11, 2009

Posted September 11, 2009 12:01 AM by SavvyExacta

Some strange stuff for Friday:

Could bacteria provide our power?

We've all seen pictures of weird sea floor creatures - here's a robot!

If you don't like rats, don't click here - giant rat discovered in volcano crater.

What animal poop tells us about climate change.

I had never seen a ribbon seal, but it's pretty funky looking!

I've never ever heard of a Ribbon Seal, but its adorable! Unfortunately, like anything tied to the ongoing global warming debate is always surrounded by controversy. It sounds as though it might be awhile before the activists can get the seals on the endangered species list, as the dispute on whether or not its environment is actually being reduced continues to rage.

Regardless of where you stand on the GW issue, it's sad to consider that many animals are having an increasingly hard time surviving.
