Welcome to Animal | Vegetable | Mineral

I never cease to be awed by the splendor of the natural world, by the forces that shape the earth, and by the diversity and ingenuity of the life that populates it.

Animal | Vegetable | Mineral is a group where those who share this fascination can discuss the Earth and animal sciences of geology, volcanology, seismology, ecology, ethology, primatology, entymology—basically all the –ologies of the natural world. 
 

For general science, chemistry, genetics, or evolution, please post in the Science! group. For posts on animal rights and welfare, please post in Animal Care. For cosmology, please post in The Daily Cosmos. For green living, sustainability, and environmental activism, please post in the Green Atheists group.

There is still a lot of uncertainty regarding the behavior and evolutionary trajectory of pterosaurs, but more discoveries are being made all the time. There is one thing that no one is debating any longer—pterosaurs should not be confused with dinosaurs, they aren’t the direct ancestors of birds, and the term “pterodactyls” should not be used as a general catch-all word for hundreds of different species that existed over the course of 150 million years!

#PterosaurPtuesday: Crustaceans beware! The skull of Dsungaripterus shows several adaptations for crushing shellfish. The heavy, pointed snout might have been used to dig for clams, and the large, crushing teeth could have pulverized them like a nutcracker. #PterosaursinCLE
