Foxes In Cities Evolving Smaller Skulls, Much Like Domesticated Pets

This is pretty wild! Or... quite literally the opposite of wild. 

According to a new study, foxes that were found in the city of London have stubbier snouts, and even smaller skulls than their wildlife-dwelling counterparts. And these changes aren't that new, it's been seen before.. with cats and dogs as they became domesticated 20,000 and 40,000 years ago.

Researchers are now suggesting that city foxes could possibly be self-domesticating due to the demands of the city environment, as well as, exposure to humans. 

So why are these adaptations happening? Foxes that dwell in the city are reported to have a wider snout and smaller braincase due to the levels of requiring food in the city versus their natural habitat. They rely on food scraps, which doesn't require as strong of a bite to clamp down on bones. Whereas country foxes need that snout that enables them to bite their prey quickly.

Discover How This Incredible Miniature City Was Built For "Blade Runner" 2049

Take a look at how Weta Workshop built the set of Blade Runner 2049 in this fascinating behind-the-scenes series. Each miniature set is built on a perfect 48th scale. The sets are incredibly detailed with features like micro graffiti and carefully exacted signs of urban decay. Weta Workshop, the team responsible for miniature models in other big budget productions like Lord of the Rings and Thor, spent countless hours creating these miniature sets. To get an idea of how much time goes into a project like this, consider that each building in this fictional LA skyline takes about a week to make. For this particular set, the team built thirty-seven buildings. Keep scrolling for more photos and check out the Weta Workshop Facebook page for more behind-the-scenes trivia.

Swedish Artists Build Tiny Magical Public Spaces For Mice All Around The City

If you happen to be walking through the Swedish city of Malmö, make sure to pay attention to the little details. If you take a look down you may notice something amazing inside a basement window in the neighborhood of Möllevången. Tiny businesses — a bakery and a "cheese and cracker" shop — just the right size for mice. The 70×30 cm (about 25×12 inch) store has wide menus that mice can choose their meals from. One of them is selling nuts and the other offers cheese. In addition to shop and restaurant, they have also built "The Jerry Can" gas station and a cool playground.  Besides the well-crafted interiors, there are posters about upcoming mice concerts and other events. The amount of detail that went into creating this street art installation is huge! The artists behind this fairytale world are Anonymouse who are still unknown but you can check their Instagram account for more information.
