Tadpole Shrimp, a living fossil unchanged for over 200 million years, has been found in flooded parts of north China. .
A zoo in the US capital Washington DC is celebrating the arrival of twins born to a giant panda. The babies came four hours apart after female giant panda Mei Xiang went into labour on Saturday afternoon (local time). Director of the Smithsonian National Zoo Dennis Kelly said: "All of us are thrilled that Mei Xiang has given birth." Mr Kelly said the zoo was being cautious as when Mei Xiang gave birth in 2012, her cub later died aged just six days old. "This is still a very fragile time," he said. "But we know Mei is an excellent mother." Officials said 17-year-old Mei Xiang picked up the first cub soon after she gave birth. She has previously had two offspring, in 2005 and 2013. It is understood that, because pandas in the wild give preference to whichever is the stronger cub and sometimes allow a twin to die, the babies will be kept separate. One will live in an incubator while the other is with the mother and they will be rotated so both are able to spend time with her. Mei Xiang received sperm by artificial insemination from two potential fathers - Hui Hui, a panda in China, and the National Zoo's Tian Tian. It is not yet known which of the two was successful. A DNA test will be carried out in due course to determine paternity. It is also understood that the panda babies may have to be returned to China which retains ownership of all pandas loaned to zoos around the world. No decision has yet been made about the names. It is expected to be many months before any surviving panda babies make their public debuts.

From <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e61YB3uOgVw" target="_blank">playing football with elephants</a> to <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R22QCEuSTrs" target="_blank">following a big whale shark</a> he seems to have done it all. His latest adventure sees his path crossing with a rather unusual creature; the striated frogfish. This sea creature is more commonly known as the hairy frogfish due to the dermal spinules that cover its body and resembles hairs. The little fish seems to take no notice of the diver as it ambles along. Credit: YouTube/J Hawk Daily
