Two tales of the not-so-cute and cud­dly claw­ing their way back from extinc­tion. First, crabs that sur­vive chaos, expand the pos­si­bil­i­ties of evo­lu­tion­ary des­tiny, and teach us some­thing about how to live. Then, the mys­tery of a thou­sands years-old bur­ial prac­tice brought abrupt­ly to a halt, and the health of all the world’s ecosys­tems held in the wings of a…vulture.
