David Icke accuses TV hosts of ‘abuse’ after heated interview about shape-shifting lizards

Conspiracy theorist David Icke claims he was verbally abused by Australian TV hosts after they aggressively challenged him on his belief that the moon is a hollow space station.

Shape-shifting frog discovered in Ecuadorian Andes

A frog in Ecuador's western Andean cloud forest changes skin texture in minutes, appearing to mimic the texture it sits on. Originally discovered by a Case Western Reserve University PhD student and her husband, a projects manager at Cleveland Metroparks' Natural Resources Division, the amphibian is believed to be the first known to have this shape-shifting capability. But the new species, called Pristimantis mutabilis, or mutable rainfrog, has company. Colleagues working with the couple recently found that a known relative of the frog shares the same texture-changing quality--but it was never reported before. The frogs are found at Reserva Las...
