Friday Roundup: This Week's Wildlife Links (November 22nd, 2013)


Paging Indiana Jones, do natural history specimens belong in museums or can they be sold to the public? What about Dodo bones? The author's conclusion is sometimes. What about dueling dinosaur fossils? Well, they didn't sell at auction. The San Diego Museum of Natural History changed their mind at the last minute and pulled their fossils out of the same auction.

This shark bit off more moose than it could chew.


A first-hand account of trying to find one of the rarest cats in the world. And succeeding. In Borneo.

An elusive cat closer to home. Long-form read of cougars outside Los Angeles.

What the United States can and should do to stop wildlife trade and the funding it produces for terrorist groups.

Speaking of, the fierce urgency of saving Asia's rhinos before it is too late.


Migration is a deadly time for raptors.

Beautiful pictures that are hard to look at. The Death of Majesty.
