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.

"Mammoths vs. mastodons" Now if those differences don't prove that evolutionary processes aren't at work here nothing will.

Gorgeous bird.

Mammoths vs. mastodons - what’s the difference? Both lived 2.6 MYA - 12K years ago, but mammoths were flat-toothed grazers that used their twisting tusks to sweep snow to find grasses; while mastodons browsed on leaves using their conical-cusped molars to chew. #FossilFriday

A spider's "paw" is called a tarsus, and it's only one of eight parts that make up a rather complicated leg. They also have claws attached to the paws, but legs also work as ears and nose picking up subtle changes in the air to hear and recognize smells https://buff.ly/2I0WVew

This beautifully preserved straight-tusked elephant (Palaeoloxodon antiquus) molar is from the interglacial deposits at Swanscombe in Kent. It is around 420,000 years old. This elephant became extinct in Britain towards the end of the last interglacial about 115,000 years ago.
