Amazing animals

It really is amazing, to me at least, how animals can adopt. What with all that’s going on around them, some seem to find a way to adjust to their environment and here are a couple of examples of that.

The first example of this comes in the article “Tigers Take the Night Shift to Coexist with People” over at Science Daily. Let’s hope, that with our help, they succeed.

Meanwhile, for those animals that are a tad bit smaller and perhaps not on our radar, we have “Artic Crustaceans Use Deep-Water Migration to Survive Sea Ice Melts” by Nathan over at Planetsave.

Gimme an E…

Okay, as I wind down “Horseshoe Crabs and Velvet Worms” (and yes I know I just mentioned it the other day), Mr. Fortey is sort of retracing our steps over the number of “mass extinction” this planet of ours and it brings me back to the reality of today. Now while he talks about this sort of matter of factly, one doesn’t need to look around much to find articles on the topc such as these two.

The first one is “One-fifth of creepy spineless animals could disappear forever” by Sarah Laskow over at Grist. There’s also a link at the bottom of the page to the source for this article over at the BBC. Funny thing is, well not really funny, these are some of the same animals that Mr. Fortey mentions in his book.

The other article is entitled “100 Most Threatened Species List Released, All Likely to Disappear Within the Next Two Decades” by Nathan over at Planetsave. Talk about depressing news.

Now, back to your regularly schedule program.
