Happy International #PolarBearDay! Two layers of fur help polar bears keep warm in the extreme temperatures of the Arctic. Adult females can weigh from 200 to 700 pounds and stand 6 to 8 feet tall. They give birth to their first cubs when they are between 4 and 8 years old. They have a very slow reproductive rate, normally producing only five litters in their lifetime. Pregnant females dig snow caves in the fall and give birth in early winter. A mother and her cubs spend their time sleeping until they emerge from their den in March or April. Cubs may stay with their mothers for as long as 2.5 years learning how to survive. PolarBear and Cub. Svalbard, Norway. © Yves Adams/ #NaturesBestPhotography Windland Smith Rice International Awards 2013.

View of the lab bench in our #Orchids2015 exhibition. Most of today’s mass-produced orchids aren’t grown from seeds—they’re clones! Using tissue culture techniques, orchid cultivators can produce an infinite number of identical plants. Clones are grown from cells taken from the tip of a plant’s shoot. Under sterile conditions, growers place these cells in a flask filled with nutrients and hormones. The resulting plantlets grow up in a series of flasks, until finally they’re ready to leave the lab for the greenhouse. Not all labs mass-produce orchids for sale—some focus on conserving wild species.

Rhodochrosite specimen with Quartz, from Ancash, Peru. Its name is derived from the Greek ‘rhodon’ meaning "rose," and ‘chroma’ meaning "color," referring to its rosy color. Rhodochrosite is commonly found associated with calcite, quartz and metal sulfides, and is always pink or red because it contains manganese. This extraordinary specimen was found during mining for tungsten. #MineralMonday
