500 years

Yes, I’ve seen the movie Jaws and yes sharks, scare me (though I haven’t been to the ocean in decades) but I still think sharks are amazing. According to this article, entitled “Greenland Sharks May Live for More than 500 Years” by Jaymi Heimbuch over at the Mother Nature Network, they’re also the longest living vertebrate in the world. Still scary but that is so cool.

Horses & hooves

So my daughter will be the first one to tell you that I don’t know much about horses. So tonight I am posting an article I read on horses to learn a little more. The article is entitled “How Horses Got Their Hooves” by Steph Yin over at the New York Times. While I will no doubt never know as much as her, I will know a little bit, maybe just enough to surprise her.

Sincerely-
