A whale’s home

Sounds like the title of a book. The problem is, the whale’s home is changing according to the article entitled “A Less Hospitable Home” by Karen Weintraub over at the New York Times. If you want to learn more about whales,  I highly recommend the book The Whale: In Search of the Giants of the Sea by Philip Hoare.

Though I haven’t been to the ocean in years and years, two of my favorite animals are sea turtles and whales. To me, truly magnificent animals.

Life on earth

It was when I first read the book Horseshoe Crabs and Velvet Worms: The Story of the Animals and Plants that Time has Left Behind by Richard Fortey and mentioned in an earlier post entitled Horseshoe Crabs that I first began to read about life and evolution on earth. So when I came across this article entitled “Did Life on Earth Start Due to Meteorites Splashing into Warm Little Ponds?” over at Science Daily, I realized that I want to read more.
