We’re welcoming the weekend with Lonesome George.
Be among the first visitors to see the famous Pinta Island tortoise who was the last of his kind when he died in 2012. Lonesome George will be on display at the Museum till January 4, 2015, when he will be returned to Ecuador as part of that country’s national patrimony.
Interesting stories from the past week:
See the fossil finds from a recent expedition to the Gobi Desert.
Black widows are among the few spider species harmful to people.
In a "bachelor band" of bighorn sheep, horn and body size determine rank.
Watch a trailer for Jalanan, featured in the 2014 Margaret Mead Film Festival.
Have a wonderful weekend!

Say hello to the Colossus Penguin!
Palaeeudyptes klekowskii is the most complete fossil ever discovered in Antarctica. The bones, found at La Meseta, Seymour Island, are 37 million years old and include the longest recorded fused ankle bone and parts of a wing bone. From these bones, researchers are able to estimate that the species weighed as much as 115 kg, and measured 2 metres from beak tip to toe (1.6 metres when standing normally). The second image above compares it to the Emperor Penguin (Aptenodytes forsteri), the largest living penguin today.
Carolina Acosta Hospitaleche of the La Plata Museum in Argentina uncovered the bones, and says that a penguin of this size could probably spend up to 40 minutes submerged in water hunting for prey, which is a great advantage for animals that huge!
You can read more about this at The Guardian and New Scientist.
And you can read the actual published research paper here.

The one thing I took away from university about geologists is that they harbour a secret resentment for biologists and fossils as though it’s my fault those fossils are in there ruining their perfect rocks
