Friday Coffee Break: Name that panda, cuddle that moth, and get those fossilized insects a room

Latte - Wellington

Here’s what we’ll be talking about while we’re waiting in line for a latte:

From Sarah: The National Zoo is taking a vote on what to call its new panda cub.

From CJ: How many ways are bats cool? Lots. How appropriately is the fuzzy bunny moth’s name? very. And, sadly, it looks like the western black rhino is extinct.

From Amy: Want to feel less bad about that experiment that just exploded? Wash you hands of that failure.

And from Jeremy: Behavior doesn’t fossilize, except when it does: The oldest-known fossils of insects in copula have just been unveiled.
