“Huskies, chows, Pekingese, Chihuahuas, setters and spaniels are type of hunting and work dogs.”
This shock me a little bit. Chihuahuas are hunting type of dog?
This cute little dog and Pekingese too??? I understand how Huskies and chows are consider as working dogs but not Pekingese and Chihuahuas!
Look at how different they are!
Anyway, they are all cute! ><
Hugo De Vries
Hugo De Vries was a Dutch botanist and one of the first geneticists. He was born on February 16, 1848 and died at the age 87 on May 21, 1935.
He accepted Darwin’s thesis that descent with modification is the main law of nature in the organic world but he need to find out how could the wide differences between species be produced. Then, he found that redder tulips produced many new varieties in his experimental gardens. He called it a “mutation”.
I actually don’t understand how they just look at the flowers and know things. Whenever I look at the flower, all I know is “It is beautiful!” or “It smell good!”
Are they genius or I’m just not intelligent enough…?
Take the fur of an otter, the tail of a beaver, the bill and webbed toes of a duck and the spurs of a fighting cock; add them together and the sum is the… PLATYPUS of Australia and Tasmania! I still thinking that this animal is very awesome. It is the most bizarre of living mammals. Is there any animals that have mix of other animal’s appearance like this? I want to have one of them.
“Darwin offered the proof of his own pets that dogs can comprehend words and sentences, and pointed out that many birds, besides parrots, have the power of articulation”
Birds and dogs can talk to each other? Then who is smarter, human who only can communicate with human and animals that can communicate to each other, even though they have different species. Can other animals understand each others like dog and bird?
A dog: Hello little bird
A bird: Hi big dog 😀
Tiger: Be prepare! I’m going to eat you.
Deer: Help! Help!
Are they communicate like this? But we just can’t understand them.
“Before the clumsy hand of man interfered, tortoises in these islands had a life expectance of well over a century. Two centuries of indiscriminate slaughter pushed them to brink of extinction.”
Then people are really the main cause of extinction. Only if people don’t interfere with them, we could find a lot of them right now. It is a sad thing to know that most of them are already extinct. On the other hand, if we keep slaughter them, don’t you think someday in a million years ahead, we will get massacre ourselves?
