These changes may have been a contributing factor to their survival of the mass extinction at the end of the Cretaceous Period 66 million years ago. The findings are published in Scientific Reports. The terms “pitch” and “yaw” usually describe movement

Plagued by Predators in the Sea, These Fish Are Moving Onto Land

Scientists have long suspected that blenny fish leapt out of water to escape the many sea creatures that seek to eat them, but the blennies' true motivations remained a mystery. Now, in a study published this week in The American Naturalist, researchers show that these sausage-shaped fish were over three times more likely to be devoured in the sea than on land, giving credence to this theory. "It turns out
