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.

Baby macaques are the first primates to be cloned like Dolly the Sheep

Zhong Zhong and Hua Hua result from decades of trying to make somatic cell nuclear transfer work in monkeys

I think ranchers who raise Rhinoceros  should be able to sell their horns because the kooks who believe rhino horns have medicinal powers - including as aphrodesiacs aren't going away and will resort to poaching  - killing rhinos to get the horn in attempt to maintain an erection. Sick bastards.

Maybe the same should be done with ranchers who raise elephants.

Tigers used for tiger bone soup is another topic.   What is it with some Asians who believe this stuff..

It's amazing how many ways we unwittingly damage wildlife.

Birds migration impacted by climate change.

https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2016/dec/28/climate-change-...

The fucking meterologists have a myopic view of climate.  I suppose that's the way it's supposed to be - to keep the masses ignorant.

Even the cable news weather channel does a terrible job at explaining climate change.

Light pollution causes sea turtles recently hatched from reaching the ocean. Evolution dictates that newely hatch sea turtles go toward the light, where before light pollution used to be stars and the sun  moon reflecting off the ocean water.
