Il tasso del miele o ratele (Mellivora capensis)

Il tasso del miele è un mustelide. E’ un predatore instancabile in grado di cacciare anche serpenti velenosi. Ha una corporatura  robusta e muscolosa, che gli consente di confrontarsi con animali di taglie molto più grandi; può raggiungere il metro di lunghezza, alto circa 30 cm al garrese, con un peso di 13-15 kg.

Mellivora capensis

Mellivora capensis

Deve il suo nome in quanto ghiotto  miele. Per procurarselo crea spesso una simbiosi mutualistica con un uccello, l’indicatore dalla gola nera (Indicator indicator).

  • Antibiotics improve growth in children in developing countries
    Antibiotics improve growth in children at risk of undernourishment in low and middle income countries, according to researchers who have just conducted a research literature review on the subject. Their results suggest that the youngest children from the most vulnerable populations benefit most and show significant improvements toward expected growth for the […]
  • New study outlines 'water world' theory of life's origins
    Life took root more than four billion years ago on our nascent Earth, a wetter and harsher place than now, bathed in sizzling ultraviolet rays. What started out as simple cells ultimately transformed into slime molds, frogs, elephants, humans and the rest of our planet's living kingdoms. How did it all begin?
  • The human food connection: Authentic Puerto Rican food in Connecticut
    Tucked away in Hartford, Conn., a Puerto Rican community is creating a tropical home away from home through cuisine that is so authentic it has caught the attention of scientists. Biologists took a close look at the fresh crops in the Puerto Rican markets of Hartford and uncovered evidence that gives new meaning to a phrase that food lovers have been using f […]
  • New technique will accelerate genetic characterization of photosynthesis
    Photosynthesis provides fixed carbon and energy for nearly all life on Earth, yet many aspects of this fascinating process remain mysterious. We do not know the full list of the parts of the molecular machines that perform photosynthesis in any organism. A team developed a highly sophisticated tool that will transform the work of plant geneticists on this su […]
  • Mouse model would have predicted toxicity of drug that killed 5 in 1993 clinical trial
    Over 20 years after the fatal fialuridine trial, a new study demonstrates that mice with humanized livers recapitulate the drug's toxicity. The work suggests that this mouse model should be added to the repertoire of tools used in preclinical screening of drugs for liver toxicity before they are given to human participants in clinical trials.
