    The prestigious international journal Quaternary Science Reviews has just published a paper which has involved the participation of Gibraltarian scientists from the Gibraltar National Museum alongside colleagues from Spain, Portugal and Japan. The results which have been published come from an area of the Catalan Bay Sand Dune. This work started ten years ago, when the first dates using the OSL method were obtained. It is then that the first traces of footprints left by vertebrates were found. In subsequent years the successive natural collapse of sand has revealed further material and has permitted a detailed study including new dates....

Canada’s Global News was first to report on the development after learning of the negotiations with the Jordanian government through its source’s and the country’s access to information law.

    Despite the Federal German Government’s statements on the use of Leopard II tanks in the attacks against Afrin, it has come to light that Ankara had sent a notice to Berlin last week. The Berlin administration is under pressure due to the Turkish army using German-made Leopard II tanks in the attacks and massacres against Afrin. Despite photographs of German Leopard tanks published in the press, the Federal German Government had issued a statement saying they “didn’t have information”. Defense Ministry Spokesperson Holger Neumann spoke in a press conference last week in Berlin and said, “Outside of the images on...

    Watch how close this Leopard comes to ripping this hunter apartTrue there isn't any leopard hunting in Cali, but you may come across a cougar. Hunting any type of cats is very dangerous, but after seeing footage like this, it might just be the deadliest. So I guess, if you're into this type of adrenaline pumping hunt, this is it. So imagine being there in a similar environment. Dogs barking, your adrenaline is pumping and you know that cat is hiding somewhere in the brush watching you. Yet you continue on, step by step, closing in on what you know...

    An unlucky leopard got more than it bargained for after trying to catch and eat a honey badger. These pictures show the leopard lamenting its overconfidence when the smaller beast lived up to Mark Twain's old adage: 'It's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog.' After spotting the badger from a distance, the leopard managed to rush down inside its burrow and drag it outside for what it thought was going to be an easy meal. But despite catching its prey by the neck, the tough mammal managed to...

    When it comes to wildlife photography, the Snow Leopard is almost unicorn-like. No, it’s not mythical, but it’s almost as hard to capture one of these infamous “gray ghosts of the Himalayas” on camera as it is to track down a creature that doesn’t actually exist.

    A camera trap snapped the first-ever pictures of the elusive snow leopard in Uzbekistan. Even better, it caught not one, but two of the endangered cats on camera. The new images of the cats released by conservation groups Panthera and the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) confirm that there are at least two individual snow leopards in the Gissar Nature Reserve, a protected part of the Pamir Mountains that can be visited only for scientific research. Uzbekistan, which is about the size of California, is one of 12 countries in Asia where snow leopards still roam through rugged mountainous terrain. It's estimated...

    Many researchers had assumed the traps were fairly modern, but Porat's colleagues were curious about their provenance and asked her to analyze the traps. Porat used a technique called optical dating to measure the amount of radiation that had been absorbed from the environment in two of the leopard traps. By comparing that with background levels of radiation in the area, which have changed very little over the millennia, the team could determine when the traps were created. One of the traps was about 5,000 years old, while the other was 1,600 years old. That suggests this same technology was...

    “A leopard mauled at least three people in the northeastern Indian city of Guwahati on Saturday after the ferocious feline ran into a house and attacked the residents,” The New York Daily News reports. The BBC tells us one of those persons has died. We learn that “wildlife personnel” with a tranquilizer gun took care of the big cat—after the attacks. We also learn that this is not the first time in recent years such attacks have occurred, and that they are on the increase. So why did Indian citizens have to wait for the authorities to show up after...

    India shares its country with leopards, which is both a blessing and a curse. Another leopard-on-human attack has taken place, and left one man dead, and four injured, including a man that was scalped by the cat. The leopard strolled into Gauhati located in southeast India and started his rampage of killing. The Belfast Telegraph has a picture of the cat attacking a man.
