    According to astronomers, there's a previously undiscovered pink dwarf planet orbiting our sun at 7-billion miles (about 75x the distance from the sun to earth). Hopefully there's a rest stop between here and there, because I will definitely need to potty on the trip. *brap* ... / Continue →

    Prehistoric earth was black and white? Mindblowing! The only chicken from hell I want is in nugget form and they better be SPICY. This thing looks like a naked man crouched in a chicken costume. I outlined him for you here. See? Meet Anzu wyliei, a recently discovered spec... / Continue →

    Meet Nanuqsaurus, a miniature cousin of the t-rex that roamed northern Alaska some 70-million years ago. Roaming northern Alaska now? SASQUATCH. While this has been called a dwarf or pygmy in some quarters, it is hardly small with an estimated size of around 5 m in total le... / Continue →

    He looks like something straight out of a Dr. Seuss story, doesn't he? Well he's not, he's a previously undescribed species of planthopper photographed in real life. I just want to rub his fuzzy ass on my cheeks, don't you? Like nature's little makeup brush. Many planthoppe... / Continue →

    Seen here looking like a cross between a shark, killer whale, cowboy boot and a sea turtle with an unfortunate chin penis, is an artist's impression of Entelognathus, an ancient fish paleontologists believe may be the missing link between the extinct bony armored Placoderms and... / Continue →

    I'm going to be honest, I didn't know there were OLD glue spitting velvet worms we'd already discovered. And you know what? The world seemed like a better place when I didn't. Now the storm clouds are rolling in and it looks like I'm in for 40 days and 40 nights of rain. "I... / Continue →
