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.

A little about this Zhongguo Dragon

In 2011, at Zhoujiagou in Henan the remains were uncovered of a euornithopod.[1]

In 2014, the type species Zhanghenglong yangchengensis was named and described by Xing Hai, Wang Deyou, Han Fenglu, Corwin Sullivan, Ma Qingyu, He Yiming, David Hone, Yan Ronghao, Du Fuming and Xu Xing. The generic name combines the name of the first century Chinese scientist Zhang Heng with long, Mandarin for "dragon". The specific name refers to Yangcheng, an administrative unit during the Eastern Zhou, partially coinciding with the present Henan.[1]

The holotype, XMDFEC V0013, was found in the Majiacun Formation dating from the middle Santonian, about eighty-five million years old. It consists of a partial skull and lower jaw, including the right maxilla, the right jugal and the right dentary. The paratype is XMDFEC V0014, a partial skeleton lacking the skull, including five back vertebrae, ribs, a shoulder blade and the right ulna.[1]

Gnathosaurus "Jawed lizard"

Late Jurassic

Gnathosaurus

"28 centimeters (11 in) long, skull had up to 130 needle-like teeth arranged around the side of a spoon-shaped tip. The specimen had an estimated wingspan of about 1.7 meters (5.6 ft). It probably lead a lifestyle akin to that of modern spoonbills, wading with its jaws open and closing them upon touching small prey."

It certainly does.

Maiacetus Inuus:

maia meaning mother,

cetus meaning whale, and

inuus for the Roman god of fecundity

A primitive whale that gave birth on dry land. 

47.5 million-year-old fossils, discovered in Pakistan in 2000 and 2...

Evolution tells a more interesting story than creationism.

Very odd looking lot.
