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.

poor bird

Comment was by Stephen Brodie on April 22, 2021 at 2:04pm

And in this case, the keeper and the shoebill seem to be reacting to each other or what's more likely is the Bird is just acting out something she would do to another shoebill in the wild.

Anthropomorphism at its worst.

I won't watch. Animals need to be in their own habitat.

Shoebill

Here's one of the reasons I'm against Zoo's, this video of a Shoebill is just too sad to watch.

Dinosaur Size Comparison 3D - Smallest to Biggest

Comment was by Joan Denoo on March 25, 2021 at 2:18am

Davy, thanks for the link to Casuarinaceae. 

"Australia separated from Gondwana about 100 million years ago," during the Cretaceous Age, and "began drifting northward, pushed away by the expansion of a rift valley into the eastern Indian Ocean."

The divergence of flora and fauna occurred then.

Doone, look at those beady eyes of the Cryolophosaurus! Such ugliness during the Jurassic period! 

Nick Zentner, geology prof at Central Washington University, during his internet classes, introduced me to Christopher Scotese and The PALEOMAP Project Channel. 

Using computers, Scotese illustrates the motion of plates of Earth's lithosphere since tectonic processes began on Earth between 3.3 and 3.5 billion years ago. Plate techtonics reveals the concept of continental drift. When I took geology, the idea was just beginning to gain favor. 

Here is Scotese emonstrating the process of plate tehtonics. Notice that Cryolophosaurus lived during the early Jurassic period in what is now Antarctica.
