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.

A good match for Scump

This little cutie is Nereis sandersi, a polychaete worm that makes its home in deep-sea geothermal vents.

A Scump Like Animal

Interesting

perennial grasses can live 500 years and they pump carbon into the soil to feed soil microbes. They co-evolved with large herds of grazing animals which help cycle their biomass (with the help of dung beetles) and with proper planning, cows can do that same work...

@ Stephen

Mammals were faster and smarter then their Dinosaur competitor's thankfully otherwise we wouldn't be here.

I don't think there's evidence that mamals were faster and smarter than their dinosaur competitors.  If you find some let me know.  A catastrophy such as a metor that blocked the sun and killed vegitation starving the dinosaurs doesn't make them smarter.

Have you seen how intellegent some birds are such as crows? It's recognized birds are disendents of dinosaurs.

In the upcomming extinction perhaps ants, or other insects will be the next 'most' intellegent life form.

Repenomamus was a cat-sized mammal from the early Cretaceous that fed on baby dinosaurs.

Dusky leaf monkeys have large white colored circles around their eyes which give an appearance of a spectacle

The largest extinction in Earth's history marked the end of the Permian period, some 252 million years ago. A new research finds that the Permian mass extinction in the oceans was caused by global warming that left animals unable to breathe
