LONDON ZOO PENGUINS GET INTO THE OLYMPIC SPIRIT

Stimulated by the Olympic Committee's 'Inspired by 2012' award, zoo authorities were looking for a way to celebrate Olympic Games and decided to begin with the penguins because they love displaying their athletic skills.

A “HOPPY” DISCOVERY

A new frog species has been discovered in New York City

The frogs looked nearly identical, but their blood structure was very different.

3. Feinberg believes the frog also once lived in Manhattan, but its present habitat varies from the Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge in New Jersey to northern counties of New York.
