Stand Up Critters
Have you ever wondered why some dinosaurs evolved bipedalism? Researchers have found that the two-legged trait was actually inherited from their ancient ancestors -- known as ‘proto-dinosaurs’. These smaller ancestors likely walked on all fours, but ran on two legs. They evolved that ability to better evade predators. These critters had big, muscular tails that enabled them to run faster upright for longer distances. Smaller forelimbs improved their balance and reduced their body weight. Experts say some of these proto-dinosaurs gave up walking on all fours altogether. It had previously been argued that bipedalism allowed the creatures to use their forelimbs for hunting … but that wouldn’t explain why many ancient herbivorous dinosaurs -- like the plateosaurus (PLAY-tee-oh-sore-us) -- retained the ability. Did you know that some of the proto dinosaurs could be around the size of a squirrel?

Down the Rabbit Holes
You wouldn’t guess that something the size of a rabbit hole in the West Midlands of England would lead to a sanctuary for a persecuted order of knights. A series of caverns was discovered in Shropshire (shrop-SHUR) that were once used by the Knights Templar … more than 700 years ago! The subterranean caverns attracted so much vandalism that they were closed in 2012. They’ve since recently been reopened, and a photographer named Michael Scott came away with some amazing pictures of the eerie location. You can see the caves have remained in excellent condition over the centuries, and have subsequently been used by druids and pagans as a place of worship.The Knights are said to have once used the underground network as a ceremonial spot … and as a refuge, after efforts were initiated to dismantle the group in the 14th century. It’s still not known exactly when the Caynton Caves were carved out and first inhabited … and some even argue that the ancient order may have never used them at all … what do you think?

Ancient Antibiotics
There’s more evidence that Neanderthals weren’t as slow as is sometimes though … Researchers have found they may have been using antibiotics and painkilling drugs as long as nearly 50,000 years ago! While examining the fossilized teeth of a Neanderthal man that once lived in Spain’s El Sidron (see-DRone) cave, scientists detected the genetic material of a mould with antibiotic properties. Nicknamed ‘Sid’ scientists found that the caveman suffered from a dental abscess and bacteria that would have resulted in gastrointestinal problems. But DNA analysis of his dental plaque suggests that Sid ate poplar to treat himself … that bark contains salicylic (sal-ih-SIL-ik) acid, the primary ingredient of aspirin ... which wasn’t synthesized until 1890. There’s also evidence suggesting Sid used a prehistoric antibiotic … traces of the fungus used to create penicillin was also found in his teeth. Penicillin wasn’t discovered until 1928! Did the cavemen really know how to self-medicate?

Deep Sea Mystery
Was it some bizarre hybrid of a fish and a prawn? Fishermen in the waters of Australia’s Northern Territory found some creatures with a bizarre, prehistoric appearance. The critters were found at a depth of nearly 1,000 feet (300m) at a spot close to Darwin’s maritime boundary with Indonesia. The unusual specimens had bulging eyeballs, horned spikes, and was encased in heavy scales covered with slime. The weird marine life had the locals baffled … until experts identified it as an armored sea robin … They’re known to have thickened fin rays they use as feet to scuttle about the ocean floor, instead of swimming. They’re considered a rare species of fish that’s normally found in deep tropical waters. Unfortunately, these critters became scarcer still … coz it looks like the fishermen slung ‘em on the barbie.

Chill By Nature
And finally … Have you had a bear of a day? Well, we’ve found a way to help you instantly unwind. Actually, a study was recently conducted about the beneficial effects of watching nature documentaries … and it showed that watching even only a few minutes of such programs can relieve anxiety and stress … and boost your joy and happiness. The study used the BBC programme “Planet Earth II” as a model …the BBC’s research was a collaborative effort with the University of California Berkeley … and has resulted in The Real Happiness Project

Salicylic Acid isn't found in Poplar bark, it's found in Willow Tree bark. - It's Latin name is salix, hence Salicylic Acid; otherwise the drug would be called Populicyclic Acid, just to mention ...
The trick with the Willow Tree bark is even known to Grizzlies, so yes, we can assume that Homo neanderthalensis was a very clever human being.

That fish at 5:10 is what we call "tora-tora" in Negros Island in the philippines. I've eaten it and it doesn't have much taste. We grill it and the dipping sauce is the key ingredient to make a delicious lunch. 😊😊

One thing that has always pissed me off, is that people assume that our ancestors were not smart. But here is another case that says otherwise. Just because we have more advanced technology than our ancestors did, doesn't mean we're any smarter.

would anyone else here eat a unidentified fish that they found?

"What do you think this is that we've caught? Fish? Crustacean?"
"I dunno, but it's probably rare because we've never seen one, and we've fished these waters for years - in fact these might be the last of their kind. "
" Yes, you're right - we should photograph them - someone might know what they are"
"Good idea, and when you're finished photographing them, we should eat them"
"That's what I was thinking - if they are really rare we might not ever get another chance to taste them"
"True, and if it's the last of their species, who's going to miss them? "
