And thanks to the proliferation and popularity of smartphones and affordable video cameras, there are more new recordings of natural phenomena than ever before—some never previously documented. 

March brought some fascinating new insights into our planet, from "bondage spiders" that tie up their mates to the world's biggest animal getting even bigger.
