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 don't think he goes along with anyone else's say so.

Are they his ideas or are they being pushed through by others who backed him? like the Koch brothers and other rightwing backers.

The fact that Trump has lifted President Obama's ban on elephant trophies being imported into the country is a devastating blow to the survival of these beautiful animals. It's savage and pointless. It breaks my heart.

This Shark Could Be Oldest Living Vertebrate At 512 

Danish scientists believe they've discovered the oldest living vertebrate: A Greenland shark lurking in the frigid North Atlantic and Arctic waters that could be 512 years old, according to the journal Science.
Greenland sharks grow at torpid pace of only about one centimeter per year. So when the scientists discovered a female shark measuring about 18 feet, it was clear the shark had witnessed a few centuries of history.

Little is known about the species. The sharks are known to prowl the Arctic and North Atlantic seas from Eastern Canada to Western Russia, but in 2013, a deep-sea research submarine spotted a 12-foot Greenland shark in the Gulf of Mexico. They have a short and rounded snout and small eyes, and their rough textured skin can be colored creamy-gray or blackish-brown. They are an apex predator with a diet consisting mostly of other fish.
Greenland sharks are known to be relatively abundant throughout the North Atlantic and Arctic, particularly from eastern Canada to western Russia. They occasionally are spotted by deep-sea robotic submarines at latitudes further south, such as in the Gulf of Mexico. They have been observed in depths down to 1.4 miles.
