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.

The huge extinct sperm whale Livyatan melvillei measured an incredible 18 metres long. It had huge curved teeth lining its jaws, unlike modern sperm whales which grow conical teeth only on their lower jaw. (Credit: Mary Persis Williams)

Bird / Dinosaur 

Another dinosaur from the Yixian formation, Zhenyuanlong suni, a Dromaeosaurid of about 2 m long. The holotype preserves feathers beautifully. I depicted it here as of it was nervously foraging along the forest floor #paleoart #sciart #dinosaurs

Peligrotherium looks a bit like a wombat but not as solidly built  as a wombat.

spotted boxfishlooks very much like the Toadies we catch when fishing in estuaries and off wharves and bridges. bloody bait stealers they are.

you imagine standing next to a giant Pterosaur.
Ah! No--oo! It may have a go at you if you did and that is depending on whether they would like you company or ping off like some birds do.

These might be rural foxes but I hear this sound every night at this time of year, right in the centre of London.

Great images, Stephen.  Dinosaurs are getting better looking every year.

Deinocheirus was a huge herbivorous theropod from the late Cretaceous. They measured 11 metres long & weighed 6 tonnes.
