Fascinating Top 10 List from Conservation International
By Molly Bergen
It’s the last week of the year, and we all know what that means—it’s time for top 10 lists. From the most popular songs of the year to the most frequent Google searches, there seems to be a list for everything. And I’ll admit I get suckered into reading lots of them.
This got me wondering what a similar list would look like for Conservation International's blog. So here you go—our 10 most-viewed posts of 2012.

The species is not new to science. Both males and females of this species possess large head horns which they use to fight other beetles over food and mates. (© Piotr Naskrecki)
