The elephant population in South Africa's Kruger National park is growing, and the big animals can be destructive. But like humans, elephants are afraid of bees. So one zoologist is testing whether the insects can ward off the hungry pachyderms.
A mother honey badger in South Africa's Greater Kruger National Park was quick to defend her cub when a leopard tried to take it for its dinner. A guide captured the ordeal on film.
After going unseen for 40 years, scientists have rediscovered a bee in Indonesia so large that it is nicknamed the "flying bulldog." Researchers feared the giant bee had gone extinct.
We might not love creepy-crawlies, but if insects were to vanish within a century, as some scientists predict, there would be dire consequences for us humans. Is it too late to save bees, bugs and butterflies?
Elephant numbers in South Africa's Kruger National Park are rising — which is good news. But the prominent pachyderms are destroying habitat for other animals. Can the tiny bee provide a last line of defense?
