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.

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.

During the COVID Lockdown, many of the parks and canal towpaths haven't had the wildflowers cut back and therefore for the First time many of the Butterflies have returned. Even in London, I'm seeing a resurgence of butterflies after years of them dying out. This I'm sure is a Red Admiral a species that has been hit quite badly. Photo was taken on the pavement outside my block.

Doone there must be a committee of God's to have designed that Saccorhytus

Comment by Doone on August 8, 2020 at 3:55pm

In case you were wondering --- ypes of Deuterostome. Crinoidea—Feather stars and sea lilies. Asteroidea—Sea stars. Ophiuroidea—Brittle stars. Echinoidea—Sea urchins and sand dollars. Holothuroidea & Concentricycloidea—Sea cucumbers & Sea Daisies.
