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.

Azhdarchid I notice they have feathers but I wonder if that's the last word in  Paleontology

Comment by Stephen on July 15, 2020 at 11:09am

Azhdarchid was one mother of an animal.

Do not forget they also had other problems created by nature and we were just one more problem that sent them over the brink to oblivion.
Yeah! ya looking at a drumstick of around maybe 500kg, if they were about two tonne.

Comment by Stephen on June 15, 2020 at 7:59am

Doone. We mustn't blame our ancestors too harshly food must have been hard to find and the Terror Bird must have fed a whole family for days, just look at those Drumsticks.
