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.

Then the cat domesticated us!

Comment by A place called Doone yesterday

Interesting news about Cats

http://blogs.plos.org/onscienceblogs/2017/06/23/where-did-cats-come...

The origin of the domestic cat, Felis catus, is radically different from the origin stories of our other domestic animals. All of them are deliberate human creations. Cats appear to have domesticated themselves.

That turned out to be a smart move. As Sarah Zhang observes at the Atlantic: “Domestication has been a fantastically successful evolutionary strategy for cats.”

Flamingos are not naturally pink: they get their color from the food they eat.
