This is a very colorful, and young, Broad-banded water snake (Nerodia fasciata confluens). This snake occurs across much of the southeastern United States including the eastern third of Texas. Broadening of the head (demonstrated here) is a common defensive posture by banded water snakes when threatened to resemble a venomous snake such as a cottonmouth. Beautiful snake!

MARINE MICRO ALGAE CAN EVOLVE RAPIDLY TO ADJUST TO CLIMATE CHANGE

Tiny marine algae can evolve fast enough to face climate change, a sign that some ocean life may be more resilient than previously thought by rising temperatures and acidification, a recently study showed. 

Evolution is usually omitted in scientific projections of how it will affect the planet in the coming decades due to global warming; genetic changes occur too slowly to help larger creatures. The findings indicate that Emiliania huxleyi, who can produce 500 generations per year - or more than one a day - can still thrive when exposed to temperatures and acidification levels higher expected by mid-2100 oceans. 

Emiliania huxleyi, is the main source of food for fish and other marine life. Algae, as they grow, they absorb large amounts of carbon dioxide, the main greenhouse gas. Its huge blooms can sometimes be seen from space.

WATCH NOW: SCIENTISTS DISSECT A COLOSSAL SQUID

Watch live online as specialists in squid biology from Te Papa and Auckland University of Technology undertake research on this rare find. This colossal squid and the specimen already on display at Te Papa are the only two of their kind caught intact – ever! Large colossal squid specimens in good condition are rarely available to scientists, so this latest example has caused great excitement.

Thank you, all of our friend!! For the first captive bred Lanthanotus in the world, a Earless monitor lizard (Lanthanotus borneensis) has hatched at iZoo 10/SEP/2014. Unfortunately the baby that sadly passed shortly after hatching but this unique event has contributed to our knowledge of the breeding of this very rare species. The hatchling size was 12cm. I will make more details on English article soon.
