It’s easy to get excited about new fossil discoveries, but sometimes a second look at an old find can reveal something just as surprising.
Proving that it will always have what it takes to compete with the likes of Neiman Marcus when it comes to obscene gift ideas, Hammacher Schlemmer has revealed this beauty for the 2014 holiday season: a $100,000 life-size replica of a 40-foot long T-rex skeleton that stands 15-feet tall. Good luck hiding that under…
An animal skeleton is made up of hundreds of tiny bones, many of which are too fragile to be handled by human hands. That's why many osteology departments at museums have a special team exclusively devoted to the careful cleaning of these specimens: A colony of millions of flesh-eating beetles.
So last night's Alien Sharks was actually pretty decent. If only the entire week had programming of that quality! But there's lots more online shark science to be had. Today's serving is all about shark skeletons!

Because unfortunately movie versions of medical textbooks are all too rare, if you're cramming for an upcoming exam on the human skeletal system and the last thing you want to do is spend the night reading, this wonderful $32 tome can be turned into an almost six-foot tall paper skeleton.

Thanks to Takayuki Hori's X-ray origami paper, we've had the first look at origami animals' skeletons since the first crane was folded neatly in the 17th century.
It's official; this blizzaster we're stuck with has ushered in an age of glowing, fire-ringed skeletons that will send us to our maker. Either that or someone is very, very good at light painting.
We saw some amazing examples of lightpainting in our Shooting Challenge back in July, but Flickr user Jannepaint has come along and eclipsed them all with his pro-shooting. It's all done in front of the camera, with no after-trickery involved.
