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.

A rare Golden Possum found in Australia has been named "Pikachu", after the famous Pokémon character. The golden yellow appearance is a result of a genetic mutation. The mutation affects the possum's melanin production (photo: Boronia Veterinary Clinic And Animal Hospital)

Bat Wings. Bats have a thumb in the air when they fly.   Look at jets - they have a point on the end of the wing to break up the wind to make them airodimamic.

I hate the way they build their web site.  They are too cutsie for their own good.

Translating text from grey on white, which is unreadable to white on black.

Here's our first orphan of 2019, a tiny 22 gram squirrel.

 Here she is getting her inital exam to make sure she wasn't injured falling from her nest, and her firs meal with us of oral electolyte solution. Once she was hydrated, she was swithced to squirrel formula.

Moros intrepidus was a small tyrannosaur that lived 96 million years ago

An article published in the journal “Communications Biology” reports the identification of a new species of tyrannosauroid, the superfamily of carnivorous dinosaurs the famous T.rex belongs to. A team of researchers examined a very incomplete skeleton dating back to about 96 million years ago and named the species, which lived in today’s Utah, Moros intrepidus. It’s the oldest tyrannosauroid discovered so far in North America and this can help to understand the evolution of these dinosaurs in the larger forms that lived later.

Tyrannosauroids (Tyrannosauroidea) probably appeared in the Mid Jurassic period and became extinct together with the other dinosaurs at the end of the Cretaceous period. Some fossils belonging to this superfamily show more or less evident traces of plumage and in recent years one of the major controversies among paleontologists concerns precisely the possibility that these and other dinosaurs, including Tyrannosaurus rex (T.rex), had feathers or not. Another question far from clear is how these animals became dominant during the Cretaceous period starting from species weighing less than 100 kilograms (about 220 lbs) ousting other groups such as allosaurs, which at the beginning of that period, almost 150 million years ago, were much bigger.
