Dan Trachtenberg’s Secret ‘Predator’ Movie Puts ‘Legion’ Co-Star Amber Midthunder in the Lead

Last fall, we heard the surprising news that 10 Cloverfield Lane director Dan Trachtenberg had secretly been working on a new Predator movie. Under the title Skulls, the movie was originally said to follow a Comanche woman who goes against gender norms and traditions to become a warrior. But thanks to Hollywood not being able to keep secrets, we know that this will actually be another movie in the Predator franchise at 20th Century Studios, and an up-and-coming Native American actress is taking...

Tasmanian Tigers and Wolves Evolved Uncannily Similar Skulls

The extinct thylacine had the stripes of a tiger, the body of a canid, and the pouch of a kangaroo. These ill-fated, predatory marsupials are a classic example of convergent evolution, in which species independently evolve the same traits, and a new study breaks down just how remarkably similar Tasmanian tigers’…Read more...

Can you keep a dead loved one's skull and/or tattoos?

Being a mortician means getting asked a lot of interesting questions, especially ones on keeping a skull or other memento mori after a loved one shuffles off this mortal coil.

There are even "tattoo recovery kits" for those who want to save a patch of grandma's inked skin. Image: YouTube / Ask A Mo...

The archaeologists have identified fragments of 100 or more skulls dating from 300 to 320BCE, bearing markings indicative of decapitation and embalming. The bones were found alongside coins, ...

Skulls and bones with magnifying-glass-burned "tattoos"

Damien Noll sez, "My skulls and bones are all burned (like black line tattoo) using just a magnifying lens and sunshine." My latest work is solar pyrography on animal skulls and bones, boar, beaver, cat, cow, coyote, deer etc. Many of these skulls were processed by me from animals passed to me by local hunters in Southern France, Colorado, and Texas.
