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.

Weird.

What does this have to do with Atheism?  It shows that if you have millions of years to evolve you can "grow" very interesting life forms

Very odd.

Interesting starfish, Doone.  I've seen quite a few starfish while SCUBA diving in California, but never anything like that.

Comment by Joan Denoo on August 15, 2020 at 3:31am

Doone, strange names!

deu·ter·o·stome  (do͞o′tə-rō-stōm′).Any of a numerous animals of the group Deuterostomia, in which the anus develops from the first opening in the embryo and the mouth develops later, and including the echinoderms, hemichordates, and chordates.

Close Encounter With Blue Whale At Dana Point

About twenty years ago if it were English people on the boat you would have heard a pin drop with perhaps the quiet sighs of delight when seeing a Blue whale. Now, of course, we have become just as mouthy as these Americans. I'm of the generation that would get very angry with the noisy Americans.
