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.

Actually it sort of reminds me of an animal from Star Wars. Stephen.

As for the Saiga he has just a face your not use to,

Comment by Stephen on May 8, 2020 at 11:51pm

Of course, I'm sorry that the Saiga is endangered but that's one ugly animal.

Comment by Doone on May 8, 2020 at 7:06pm
The surreal looking saiga is a critically endangered antelope from Central Asia. Its bizarre nose is used to filter out dust & to cool the animal's blood in the summer. It also heats the air in winter before it gets to the lungs. (Photo: Tim Flach)

The animal would have been about the size of a cat.

Scientists have discovered a "crazy beast" mammal which lived alongside dinosaurs on Madagascar approximately 66 million years ago.
It was about the size of a modern cat or an opossum, according to researchers at Stony Brook University in the US, and the skeleton is the most complete for any mammal ever discovered from this era in the southern hemisphere.
The animal is also surprisingly large for mammals of its time, which were believed to be about the size of mice, and is expected to have burrowed to hunt for food and avoid dinosaurs.

The Gerenuk is a long-necked antelope from East Africa. They can extend their necks even further to reach for food.
