Many animals employ fluorescence: a light show via various biochemical means with a diversity of intentions.

Habitat Climate

An organism’s habitat is the range of environmental conditions which are tolerable. Whereas organisms which adapt to specific niches are specialists, generalists have more tolerance.

Eulipotyphlan Venom

Eulipotyphlans are a taxonomic group of small mammals which include hedgehogs, gymnures (moonrats), solenodons, moles, and shrews of all sorts. Several eulipotyphlans are venomous. Eulipotyphlans with a vicious bite independently evolved this prey-catching assist several times.

De Novo Genes

The proof of coherence as the vigor generating Nature is apparent simply by the universe sustaining itself, with entropy ticking away as a specific discretion. The vital energy of life itself defies physics. But nothing so impressively displays coherence as a creative force as the spontaneous generation of biological traits – disabusing Darwinism and the jabberwocky through which matterist scientists deceive themselves and the public.

Mucus

The slimy, hydrated gel called mucus lines all wet epithelia in our bodies – over 200 square meters, including the eyes, lungs, and gastrointestinal and urogenital tracts. Healthy individuals produce several liters of mucus daily. Mucus was long thought merely a lubricant and physical barrier against pathogens. Mucus also acts as a communication filtering device to potentially nefarious microbes.

Stick Insects

There are over 3,100 distinct stick insects in tropical and subtropical biomes throughout the world. “The extant diversity is the result of a surprisingly recent and rapid radiation,” exclaims Dutch evolutionary biologist Sabrina Simon.
