  1. Scientists discovered that the dinosaur, Daspletosaurus horneri, was covered with a mask of flat scales, with patches of armor-like skin and sheaths of horn. The skin acted as a sixth sense and allowed them to hunt and catch prey. 
  2. The world’s first glow-in-the-dark frog was discovered in Argentina. The polka-dot tree frog has translucent skin, which appears to glow. Scientists expect the glow allows for communication.
