Readers’ wildlife photos

I have a comfortable backlog of photos now, but that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t send your good pictures to me. (Remember, you can reach me using the email address you get when you click on “Research Interests” at the upper right of the page.) Today we have photos from three readers. The first two […]

Neil deGrasse Tyson tries to throw shade on cats; shut down by perfect response

The headline is ripped from the pages of HuffPo, though the article is on Bored Panda. Tyson may know his astrophysics, but he doesn’t know jack about cats. Here’s the exchange that proves it: I’ll be here all week, folks!

Readers’ wildlife videos

We have a treat today! From the rain forests of tropical Ecuador, reader/biologist/photographer/evolutionist/naturalist Lou Jost sent us some Big Cat videos. Lou’s notes: Jerry, I have some Youtube cat videos for you…very BIG cats. These are taken by a camera trap (set up by our crew, Javier Robayo, Juan Pablo Reyes, Jorge Brito, and Hector […]

This morning we saw a cat trying to catch televised snowboarders from the Olympics. Now we have a reader’s cat, Minnie, who does the same thing, except to skiers.  Staff member Alexandra reports: My grandkitty enjoying the Olympics. Minnie is a rescue, about 5 months old, living happily with my  nearby daughter and several Great […]

Spot the gorilla!

While I write a new post, here’s some fun. Reader Roger sent a photo of his cat with a “spot the. . .” quiz and a note. I think this would be classified as “dead easy”: For a bit of weekday morning fun, Aeryn invites you to play “Spot the gorilla.” A bit more about […]
