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 cosmology, please post in The Daily Cosmos. For green living, sustainability, and environmental activism, please post in the Green Atheists group.

Pika is so cute. 

Pretty birds, & somehow that about the pigeons doesn't surprise me.

Trained pigeons can tell the difference between the paintings of Pablo Picasso and Claude Monet.

Britain's ancient yews: mystical, magnificent – and unprotected

A dark green tree stands on the north side of the medieval stone church in Defynnog. The tree is broader than it is tall and has divided into two quite separate trees over the centuries. Beneath its low boughs, multiple trunks resemble molten lava. Some limbs twist like sinews; others are ramrod straight. Some patches of wood are as smooth as a liquid; other parts are as spiny as a sea urchin. There are stag’s antlers of dead branches but also spiky fresh foliage that turns ancient stumps into enormous shaving brushes.
All forms of the tree seem to be present in this fantastical, sculptural yew in a small Welsh village in the Brecon Beacons. But the most extraordinary feature of this ancient tree is that it is less protected than the much younger church beside it. Now a petition calling for legal protection for ancient yews has gained 230,000 signatories. The trees’ fate has been discussed by the ancients of the House of Lords and barristers are drawing up plans for new legislation.
Britain is home to far more ancient yews than any other country in Europe. The Ancient Yew Group has identified 978 ancient or veteran yews (more than 500 years old) in England and 407 in Wales; France has 77; Germany and Spain just four each. But some tree champions claim that proposals to protect them will never become law because powerful landowners – and one landowner in particular – are opposed to extra protections.
For Janis Fry, an artist and yew expert who started the petition, the yew at Defynnog possesses “every possibility of creation”. Its red berries (the only edible part of a notoriously poisonous tree) show it is female but, unusually, this tree also has one male branch.

A polka-dotted zebra foal stands close to its mother at the Masai Mara game reserve in Kenya on September 19, 2019. Antony Tira, a Maasai guide who first spotted the foal, named him Tira. Tira has a condition called pseudomelanism, a rare genetic mutation in which animals display some sort of abnormality in their stripe pattern
