A Cheetah mom at Burgers’ Zoo in the Netherlands has her paws full with a litter of six frisky cubs. Born September 14, the cubs have spent the last few months behind the scenes in their den, just as they would in the wild. They recently explored outdoors for the first time.

Fossil fruit from 52 million years ago revealed

A fossilised fruit dating back 52 million years has been discovered in South America. The ancient berry belongs to a family of plants that includes popular foods such as potatoes, tomatoes and peppers.

Scientists say the origins of the class go back much further than previously thought, by tens of millions of years.
