Paulo Paulino Guajajara, a 26-year-old member of the Guajajara indigenous group living in Brazil’s Amazon rainforest, was murdered on Friday (Nov. 1) by a group of loggers working illegally in the area.

Mr. Guajajara, also known as Lobo (Spanish for “wolf”), was on a hunting expedition with a friend when five loggers ambushed the pair, Reuters reported. During the encounter, the loggers shot Lobo in the face, killing him, and they seriously wounded his friend, a tribal leader named Laercio Guajajara, sending him to the hospital. One of the loggers was also reported dead, according to Reuters.

This Chemical From This Plant Is So Hot It Destroys Nerve Endings—in a Good Way

Resiniferatoxin is 10,000 times hotter than the hottest chillie pepper, and has attributes that make it promising as an extraordinary painkiller.

INFORMATION & PICS OBTAINED FROM VARIOUS SOURCES BY THE PUBLISHER

In Morocco there grows a cactus-like plant that’s so hot, I have to insist that the next few sentences aren’t hyperbole. On the Scoville Scale of hotness, its active ingredient, resiniferatoxin, clocks in at 16 billion units. That’s 10,000 times hotter than the Carolina reaper, the world’s hottest pepper, and 45,000 times hotter than the hottest of habaneros, and 4.5 million times hotter than a piddling little jalapeno. Euphorbia resinifera, aka the resin spurge, is not to be eaten. Just to be safe, you probably shouldn’t even look at it.

Euphorbia resinifera, the resin spurge, is a species of spurge native to Morocco, where it occurs on the slopes of the Atlas Mountains. The dried latex of the plant was used in ancient medicine. It contains resiniferatoxin, a capsaicin analog tested as an analgesic since 1997.

But while that toxicity will lay up any mammal dumb enough to chew on the resin spurge, resiniferatoxin has also emerged as a promising painkiller. Inject RTX, as it’s known, into an aching joint, and it’ll actually destroy the nerve endings that signal pain. Which means medicine could soon get a new tool to help free us from the grasp of opioids. READ MORE

Brazil
Golden lion tamarins live in the rapidly diminishing Atlantic Forest, a richly biodiverse region
that stretches down through Brazil and into Argentina and Paraguay. The Reserva Biológica

More than 11 million years ago, an oddball ape equipped with human-like legs and robust ape-like arms clambered across tree limbs, possibly escaping feline predators. That’s the picture that scientists have gleaned about a new species of fossil ape discovered in Bavaria.

The ape creature may have also used a weird locomotion never seen until now, shedding light on how the ancestors of humans may have evolved to walk on two legs, a new study finds.

Two Animal Traps Where Woolly Mammoths Were Driven to Their Deaths Found in Mexico

The discovery may offer rare evidence that humans were actively hunting the great creatures

In the neighborhood of Tultepec, just north of Mexico City, plans were recently underway to convert a patch of land into a garbage dump. But during preparatory excavations, workers at the site found themselves digging up woolly mammoth bones—hundreds of them. Over the course of ten months of archaeological and anthropological work, experts were able to piece together a grim picture of what appears to have been a prehistoric hunting site. The team had, according to the Associated Press, stumbled upon two large man-made traps—pits where hunters drove woolly mammoths to their deaths.

Archaeologists Unearth Hollowed-Out Whale Vertebra Containing Human Jawbone, Remains of Newborn Lambs

Iron Age Scots made the unusual vessel with the bone of a fin whale, Earth’s second
largest whale species
Whale Vessel

When archaeologists excavated a Scottish Iron Age site called the Cairns in 2016, they discovered a hollowed-out whale vertebra filled with a trio of unexpected objects: a human jaw bone and the remains of two newborn lambs. Dated to about the mid-2nd century A.D., the vessel was propped near the entrance of a broch, or type of roundhouse, and held in place by a pair of red deer antlers and a large grinding stone.

This Bird Has one Serious Set of Wind Pipes

The male white bellbird can hit an incredibly painful 125 decibels—the world’s loudest bird call.

  • The world’s loudest bird has been confirmed to be the male white bellbird—not the screaming piha as previously thought.
  • Although the male white bellbird usually sings at around 116 decibels (dB), when one is wooing a potential mate, they can get as loud as 125 dB—even when the female is in close proximity to it.
