    by

    Theodore Roosevelt, Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, Al Gore and Barack Obama are now guppies. Or darter fish rather.

    Five newly identified species of darter fish from Tennessee, Missouri, Arkansas, Kentucky, Kansas and Oklahoma have been named after four U.S. presidents and a vice president. 

    An article in the Bulletin of the Alabama Museum of Natural History authored by Prof Richard Mayden of the Saint Louis University's Department of Biology and Dr Steven Layman of Geosyntec Consultants describe the species and explain that they are named for the presidents’ and vice president’s work in conservation and environmental

For reasons unknown, the angler then bet his friends that he’d hold the fish between his teeth. His friends bet he wouldn’t, so the angler went through with the act.

    by

    Last month British retailer WHSmith banned the sale of hunting and shooting magazines to anyone younger than 14 in its 1200 stores. The company caved under pressure from the UK's largest animal rights group, and now PETA is pushing for a similar ban in the U.S.

    In a letter to the Hudson Group last week, PETA's executive vice president Tracy Reiman urged the newsstand company to not sell hunting magazines to anyone under the age of 18.

    Brazilian Scientists Plan to Clone Endangered Species-4

    by

    Brazilian researchers announced they will attempt to clone eight endangered animal species in order to prevent the collapse of wild populations, reports the Inter Press Service. The animals chosen for cloning include species like jaguar, gray brocket deer, and bison.

    But scientists say they don't plan to release clones into the wild just yet. The project isn't about boosting existing wild populations; It's more like insurance. If total extinction seriously threatens any of the eight species in the future, only then will researchers consider releasing cloned animals. They also hope to increase the number of captive animals without reducing wild populations.

    by

    A Georgia hunter killed this 14-point buck Friday morning in South Lee County, reports WALB. Michael Spurlin spotted the trophy buck when it wandered into a food plot to join a grazing doe.

    "All I could see was the silhouette of his rack coming through the pine trees," Spurlin told WALB.  "I didn't know how big he was. I just knew I needed to get my gun up and get ready for the shot. He stepped out. I didn't look at his rack through the scope. Just concentrated on making a good shot."
