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.

Randall, I'm still a big kid when it comes to Dinosaurs. I'm also a lucky man, just around the corner from my flat is an "Antique shop" which also sells second-hand books, I don't know where the owner gets them from but he always seems to have a regular supply of dinosaur books. When I've read them I leave them at the underground station's honour library where you give and take books

Cool. Coincidently, I'm reading a book (Some Assembly Required, by Neil Shubin) which has a section about feathered dinosaurs (more common than thought), and how they transformed into birds that fly. One can see the feathers on Doone's illustration. (Good book, by the way.)

Many palaeontologists seem to develop an eye for spotting telltale signs of Dinosaur bones.

https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/calgary/dinosaur-bones-drumheller-na...

Dinosaur skeleton found by 12-year-old near Drumheller, Alta., hailed as 'significant discovery'

Find fills gaps in knowledge of life 69 million years ago, paleontologist says

Nathan Hrushkin and his father have hiked through the Drumheller, Alta., area for years. 

The Calgary boy has always loved dinosaurs, so it's natural that the 12-year-old is an aspiring paleontologist — figuring such a vocation is the easiest way to get up close and personal with fossils.

This summer, while hiking with his father through Horseshoe Canyon in the Badlands region, Nathan made a discovery at the top of a hill that would excite even the most seasoned paleontologist...........more.........
