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 bathornids were lesser-known relatives of the famous South American terror birds that inhabited North America from the Eocene to the Miocene. Here's the largest species, Paracrax gigantea.

Comment by Joey Daniel Smith on Saturday

Let's simplify all of this, if you will...

There are autotrophs and heterotrophs.   Autotrophs do not feed off of other species.  They are plants, the derive energy from the Sun, combine it with minerals from the planet, create sugars and then grow and thrive.  Heterotrophs, prey and feed off of other species, This is the way  of nature.  My suggestion is...do not become Prey!

The epitome of a Scump like animal

The mata mata turtle is an ambush predator that creates a low-pressure vacuum that sucks prey into its mouth.
