Amber is already freaking sweet, but this is an Orb Weaver spider moving in to kill a parasitic wasp frozen in time. Need I say more?

This kind of stuff is just insane... wow!

Yes, i saw this on my mom's email. What an amazing action shot frozen in time! A 100 million years old one at that. Amazing how little they've changed in all that time.

This is more of a public service announcement that scientists can get it wrong it too.

RE: Paleo story of the week
I can tell these will be entertaining reads for me. Paleontology has been a life obsession for me since I was very little and got my first toy dinosaur. I read about it all the time and was basically the guy to go to when you had a question about fossils. Sadly I've fallen away from it, and even gave up on my dream of becoming a paleontologist. Maybe my interest will be rejuvinated. ^^

Interesting article about the Permian mass extinction but I don't know if I buy their numbers. I need to find their results, which probably haven't been published yet.

Pandas are a stupid, stupid, animal. They deserve to go extinct. They belong to the order Carnivora but they eat plants. They have digestive systems that are adapted to eating meat (which is easy to digest) and instead they eat plant (which has cellulose and is really hard to digest). The result is that they have to spend all their time eating. That means they have less time for other things like sleep and SEX. You know...the whole process by which they continue to survive? Stupid animals.

Can't believe you're dissing pandas. They're so cute and snurgley.

The notion that multicellularity was associated with the Great Oxygenation Event is nothing new and this might indicate that multicellularity predated the GOE and perhaps gave rise to it and fundamentally changed ecological niches. It really hinges on the timing so that piece of it has to be pretty solid and they don't really go into any detail on that, but what they say is not unreasonable.
