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.

Is the Caterpillar trying to look like Trump to avoid predation? I would say it isn't working because if I saw it on the ground id tread on it.

Nicknamed the 'Donald Trump Caterpillar', this critter is actually a flannel moth. The furry fiends are found in Mexico, southern parts of the US, and some parts of central America
