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.

Well that's different.

An endolith is an organism that lives inside rock, coral, animal shells. Many of them are extremophiles. In August 2013 researchers reported evidence of endoliths in the ocean floor, perhaps millions of years old & reproducing only once every 10,000 years https://buff.ly/2vvUGNR

Rather elegant looking.

Doone the only bird that you have to keep an eye on especially around breeding time. The Magpie, the males have a tendency to aerial bomb you.  But I have never been attacked by one yet, even though I took paths that along them other blokes have been bombed.

There is nothing like been woken in the morning to the caroling flock of maggies. Then the Guguburra begins laughing at them.

Comment by Chris B on September 24, 2020 at 4:56am

They're here too, in about every park you can find. When they fly over in big flocks, they make sharp sounds, like scissors.

Comment by Doone on September 23, 2020 at 5:24pm

Yes, birds in Australia are really pretty and cool.  It was one of the best parts of living in Australia - seeing the birds and hearing the birds.  

Comment by Mrs.B on September 23, 2020 at 5:20pm

So pretty.

Comment by Stephen on September 23, 2020 at 5:08pm

Funny Australian birds.

Here in the UK, our indigenous birds are not usually so colourful, but in a park, near me, there is a large flock of parakeets, the story goes that a few parakeets were released in the seventies and have grown exponentially.
