hank perry photographs a mother grizzly bear and her triplets in alaska’s katmai national park. describing the shoot, he noted, “the tide was out, the sand was blowing, and the wind had some rain in it — not perfect for photography.”

"two hours elapsed as we waited and the cubs played, while their mom dug hundreds of clams up. after nursing the cubs while keeping a watchful eye on both us and her surroundings, but feeling comfortable with us, she bed them down for a nap, shielding them from the wind, rain, and flooding tide for a brief moment of rest."

How Do Bamboo-eating Red and Giant Pandas Coexist?

Using high-resolution imaging, scientists at the American Museum of Natural History and the University of Málaga in Spain found that the skulls of the two panda species have structural differences related to the way the animals chew. These substantial differences reflect distinct bamboo-feeding preferences, with red pandas foraging on softer parts of the plant and giant pandas seeking out the tougher stems, allowing the two species to share the same habitat.
