Stealth. Patience. Vigilance. Slowly the hunter moves unseen among the branches. His independently rotating eyes constantly scan the leafy canopy in every direction. No insect is safe within striking distance of his infamous weapon—a fast-acting and deadly accurate catapulting tongue.

Rare and rarely seen outside of zoos, the Komodo dragon is the world’s largest lizard. But recently a group of stranded Britons had an encounter with a Komodo dragon that was reminiscent of a dinosaur-era battle.
Mighty pterosaurs may have landed and strolled about on land when it was time to dine, reports LiveScience on a study published in PLoS ONE.
Norwegian scientists have announced the largest marine reptile known to modern science, a fossil discovered in 2006 in Norway’s far-north Svalbard islands.
Sea turtles have many specializations and are intriguing to watch and study. An honest look at the facts reveals that they have been around for thousands (not millions) of years.
One of this week’s examples of “evolution” in action is Pareas iwasakii, the Japanese snake.
Some preliminary thoughts about snakes with legs.
Turtles are uniquely designed creatures continue to defy evolutionary explanation.
The gecko lizard can walk across your ceiling upside-down without falling off. How does it do tills? Until a few years ago scientists did not know, though they proposed several conflicting theories.
