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.

Scientists gave a camera to an octopus, and she only needed 3 tries to learn to use it.

How does an octopus say "cheese"?

Presumably it sounds like a muffled underwater version of "Silly humans, bow down to your cephalopod overlords," but I can't say that we'll ever know for sure.

What we do know for sure is that an octopus named Rambo has mastered the art of the f-stop and is now selling her own original photographs to visitors at the New Zealand aquarium she calls home.

The Napa Wildlife Rescue Center rehabilated an injured owl and released it into my neighborhood a couple years ago. It sounds healty.

G/D asshole who are trying to kill mice using poison will result in poisioning owls, fox, and maybe your neibors cat.

Interesting that the past two years they are giving birth under my deck.

When it's hot outside I sleep on my deck.  The past couple of years fox kits have come out with amniatoc fluid.

They are cuit. I'm lucky to have wildlife so close.

While sleeping on the deck the mother came up and jumped over me. She then nipped at my toes.  I watched her raising her kits. It was neat to watch her hunt mice and rats.

 She hopped over me and nipped at my toes as I laied quiety on the deck.

I'm sorry that I have difficulty it is to o explain how difficult it is to explain to be with the bla bla bla.
