    Some anole lizards can stay underwater for as long as 16 minutes — a trick they pull off by rebreathing exhaled air which they store in a bubble attached to their snouts. Researchers first documented this behaviour among anoles living in Coto Brus, Costa Rica in 2019, filming one of the submerged lizards using a GoPro camera. Further analysis has now suggested that different species of semi-aquatic anole evolved the rebreathing ability separately to make the most of air while diving.

'But the real question is how they're managing to stay underwater for so long.' To investigate further, Professor Swierk and colleagues conducted a series of experiments in which...

    The idea of dive with sharks It creates equal parts expectation and horror, but when you don’t expect such company it can be a truly traumatic experience. Even more so if what you live is a story similar to that of Ketty He, who was diving when she noticed the approach of several hammerhead sharks near the town of South West Rocks, state of New South Wales (Australia). Seeing what was coming, Ketty took refuge behind some rocks 24 meters deep to go unnoticed. “They stopped over, as cHundreds of sharks on our heads ten meters from us (…) You feel that they look at you and that once you move they will go for you“the diver explained to ABC News. He was able to perform a event video despite the traumatic situation he was going through, since apparently, although hammerhead sharks are not a threat for the human being, they can reach the 6 meters long and they always go in very large numbers. After about ten minutes waiting could get out of the situation. A time...

    By DAVID ERICKSON, Missoulian MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) — A treasured local hot spring and swimming hole near Missoula has been increasingly trashed and abused lately, leading the longtime local owner to finally contemplate the unthinkable. However, a scuba diver volunteered his time to clean the place up and help keep it open to the public. Nimrod Hot Springs, located next to Interstate 90 about a half-hour east of Missoula, has been owned by Andrew Czorny’s family for four decades. “It’s kind of a special place,” explained Czorny, Missoula County’s chief financial officer. “The water comes out of the ground with some force and cascades into a waterfall with a temperature of 82 degrees year-round. It’s a place where families go. I would meet people out there that swam in the hot springs for three generations and most recently the fourth generation, teaching the next generation to swim.” They’ve always kept the place unfenced without “no trespassing” signs and have allowed people to come and go as they please. “My family believes we own a precious natural resource and just because...
