"You must teach your children that the ground beneath their feet is the ashes of your grandfathers. So that they will respect the land, tell your children that the earth is rich with the lives of our kin. Teach your children what we have taught our children, that the earth is our mother. Whatever befalls the earth befalls the sons of the earth. If men spit upon the ground, they spit upon themselves."
-- Chief Si'ahl (often anglicized as "Seattle")

The little-known shark that has evolved to walk on land There are nine known species of sharks that can walk—and all of them evolved that trait in the last 9 million years. That's highly unusual, considering sharks have been around for hundreds of millions of years, and most have barely changed.
The leopard epaulette shark (Hemiscyllium michaeli) is a species of walking shark found in coral reefs in the Milne Bay region of eastern Papua New Guinea.
PHOTOGRAPH BY CONSERVATION INTERNATIONAL, MARK V. ERDMANN

A Japanese Kawasaki Ki-61 Hien fighter captured by American forces in New Guinea, 1943.Because the Ki-61 looked so different to other Japanese aircraft it was initially thought to be either Italian or German. It was powered by a license-built version of the German Daimler-Benz engine, an example of which had been shipped to Japan from Germany on a submarine. Credit : Doug

In a forward post near Scarlet Beach, Corporal R. J. Tongue fills magazines for his Owen gun, Finschhafen, New Guinea, November 1943.
The Owen submachine gun was one of the most underrated weapons of WWII. Many have said it made the difference in the campaigns that Australians fought in the Pacific. It's reliability, light weight and rate of fire was second to none in jungle warfare. (The Australian War Memorial/Norman Brown)
