I’m not sure if anyone on this site will see my post, but this is the creepiest fucking video I’ve ever watched and it’s dead on-topic for io9. Do a story about this; I want to see the group cringe.

In our Mad Science News of the day, researchers took a dead sparrow, re-animated it using tiny motors to move its wings and head, and put it in a field to study male sparrow aggression.

Nothing to see here, just helping to add to peoples' GIF collections. :)
Anyone scared of snakes? A nature photographer went to the Amazon to swim with a 26 foot anaconda. Some amazing pictures here.
