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.

I often think its us who should not have evolved.

Scientists found the 22 million-year-old fossils of a giant carnivore they call "Simbakubwa" sitting in a museum drawer in Kenya. The 1,400-kg predator, a hyaenodont, was among the largest mammalian predators ever to walk Earth's surface

Gorillas pose for a selfie with DR Congo anti-poaching unit
The gorillas are apparently trying to imitate humans 

Two gorillas have been photographed posing for a relaxed selfie with the rangers who rescued them as babies.
The image was taken at a gorilla orphanage in Virunga National Park, DR Congo, where the animals were raised after poachers killed their parents.
The park's deputy director told BBC Newsday that they had learned to imitate their carers, who have looked after them since they were found.
The gorillas, he added, think of the rangers as their parents.
Innocent Mburanumwe, deputy director of Virunga, told the BBC that the gorillas' mothers were both killed in July 2007.
The gorillas were just two and four months old at the time.

Shortly afterwards, they were found and taken to Senkwekwe Sanctuary in Virunga, where they have lived ever since.
Because they've grown up with the rangers who rescued them, Mr Mburanumwe added, "they are imitating the humans" - and standing on two legs is their way of "learning to be human beings".
But it "doesn't happen normally", he said.
"I was very surprised to see it... so it's very funny. It's very curious to see how a gorilla can imitate a human and stand up."
Being a ranger, however, is not always fun - it is mainly dangerous work.
Five rangers were killed in Virunga National Park last year in an ambush by suspected rebels, and more than 130 park rangers have been killed in Virunga since 1996.
Eastern DR Congo is mired in conflict between the government and various armed groups.
Some of these armed groups are based in the park, where they often poach animals.

The magnificent carpet chameleon.

Don't think this made it with my previous post.

The largest moth in the world is the Atlas moth (Attacus atlas), with wingspan of up to 30 cm (12 inches) and a surface area of 400 square centimeters (62 square inches). It is found in the tropical and subtropical forests of Southeast Asia.

atlas moth

Like all insects, they have a three-part body (head, thorax and abdomen), three pairs of jointed legs, compound eyes and one pair of antennae.

That is more likely to me than any of the Star Track, or other Science fiction mythologoy where all species get along great.

More than likely over time there will be another type of Pangea.

Earth Map in 50 million years in the future.



Dixon assumes that Europe and Africa would eventually fuse, closing up the Mediterranean Sea. Asia and North America would collide and close up the Bering Strait. South America would split off from Central America. Australia would collide with southern Asia, uplifting a mountain range. Finally, parts of eastern Africa would split off to form a new island which he called Lemuria. Other volcanic islands have been added, such as the Pacaus Archipelagoand Batavia.

After antropormorphic extinction perhaps some of  small creatures you showed will have space to inhabit the world - that is after pesticides have been absorbed into the earth and soil.
