2016-04-23 - Hamilton, Canada

Bowmanville Zoo: will they replace Limba?

2013-12-04 - Bowmanville, Canada

On Tuesday, as zoo staff mourned, Hackenberger told the Star he couldnt say whether Limba would be replaced. ´At this point Im dealing exclusively with Limba, so I dont know.

Mammoths: The Misunderstood Giants. (Even by this article author, who think trees were bad food for mammoths....)

2013-11-13 - Ontario, Canada

As someone who works on Silurian age fossils, I can´t help but be jealous every time a new mammoth "fossil" is found in permafrost. These mammoth corpses can barely be considered to be fossils. My most recent pang of jealousy occurred on finding out that Yuka, one of the more famed frozen mammoth corpses is to have her brain scanned.
