Il Tuatara è un  rettile raro, di medie dimensioni (gli adulti hanno un peso che varia da circa  300 g a 1000 g e possono raggiungere una lunghezza di 60 cm) presenti esclusivamente in Nuova Zelanda; in particolare  sopravvive a fatica in trenta isolotti fra lo Stretto di Cook, la Baia di Planty e il Golfo di Hauraki.

E’  l’unico membro della famiglia Sphenodontidae, ordine Rhynchocephalia ben  rappresentato  da numerose  specie circa 200 milioni di anni fa. Attualmente si conoscono due specie:

  • Nature's tiny engineers: Corals control their environment, stirring up water eddies to bring nutrients
    Conventional wisdom has long held that corals -- whose calcium-carbonate skeletons form the foundation of coral reefs -- are passive organisms that rely entirely on ocean currents to deliver dissolved substances, such as nutrients and oxygen. But now scientists have found that they are far from passive, engineering their environment to sweep water into turbu […]
  • Mom's hormones could make female magpie chicks more adventurous
    Female magpies have been shown to be more adventurous than their male siblings, according to new research. “The fact that observable differences between the first hatched and last hatched magpie’s behaviors exist indicates that mothers may be able to produce variable traits, possibly through adjustable transmission of maternal hormones or creating the condit […]
  • Training your brain to prefer healthy foods
    It may be possible to train the brain to prefer healthy low-calorie foods over unhealthy higher-calorie foods, according to new research.
  • Scientists call for investigation of mysterious cloud-like collections in cells
    About 50 years ago, electron microscopy revealed the presence of tiny blob-like structures that form inside cells, move around and disappear. But scientists still don't know what they do -- even though these shifting cloud-like collections of proteins are believed to be crucial to the cell, and therefore could offer a new approach to disease treatment. […]
  • How neurons in bats' brains ensure a safe flight
    Bats emit ultrasound pulses and measure the echoes reflected from their surroundings. They have an extremely flexible internal navigation system that enables them to do this. A study shows that when a bat flies close to an object, the number of active neurons in the part of a bat's brain responsible for processing acoustic information about spatial posi […]
