There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

  Brown Hyena (the Strandwolf)
Posted by: Pantherinae - 04-22-2017, 10:18 PM - Forum: Canids (Canidae) & Hyaenids (Hyaenidae) - Replies (9)
The brown hyena lives in the Sothern parts of the African continent, it's a medium sized carnivore, the size difference between the sexes are not very noticeable, but the males are a little bigger than females the males typically weigh 40-44 kg while females weigh 37-40 kg, but a large female weighed 72 kg. The body length averages on  144 cm, witch a range of 130-160 cm. Shoulder height is 70-80 cm. 
The brown hyena is a notorious scavenger, able to fend of multiple wild dogs (seems better at this than a single spotted hyena), cheetahs and even leopards in search for their kills. They will although sometimes hunt for themselves for the most part small mammals, they are becoming quite famous for killing cape fur seal pups.

Maned Wolf (Chrysocyon brachyurus) Skull
- Length of skull 25 cm
- Wide of skull 12,5 cm
- Length of upper canine 3 cm
- Length of lower canine 2,5 cm

The average adult weighs 23 kg (51 lb) and stands 90 cm (35 in) tall at the shoulder, has a head-body length of 100 cm (39 in) with the tail adding another 45 cm (18 in). Its ears are large and long (7 inches).The maned wolf is omnivorous. It specialises in preying on small and medium-sized animals, including small mammals (typically rodents and rabbits), birds, and even fish, but a large portion of its diet (more than 50%, according to some studies) is vegetable matter.

It is very interesting to see that big part of their diet are rodents and rabbits because they have huge canine teeth for canids similar sized to the canine teeth of Wolf (Canis Lupus)

Star What is your next favorite thing?
Posted by: sanjay - 04-11-2017, 12:34 AM - Forum: Miscellaneous - Replies (4)
We all are here becasue in some or other way we relate each other due to our love and curiosity for nature and wild animals.
In this thread I am in mission of finding your other interest. So that we can know how many of us share same common passion for life other than wildlife and animals.

So my question is what other things you like to read, write, watch, search and talk on internet ??
I mean their are lots of other industry/fields which may be worth of an hour? 2 hours ? or entire day ? from your daily life ?
Here are few of the listed items that coming right on the top of my head

01. Gadget (Mobile, drone, VR, GPS etc..)
This industry has most attention by young people and newer generation. I am also one of them and my current favorite is Drones. I love to see them and read about them.

02. Gaming (PC or mobile game)
Not my cup of tea, I have played some games (Project IGI) but I was never a good gamer and I never wanted to be. But I am sure many of you have lot to talk on this.

03. Movies, Super hero, WWE, Action, Music, Superman, batman, Ironman,  animation movies.
Well, I like to watch animation movie most, but my friends are more inclined towards Marvel and DC movies. They tell me lot of stuffs so sometime I watch them. WWE ? I think its only for amateur one

04. Football, Baseball, NBA, Cricket, any sport.
Since I am Indian, Cricket used to be my favorite game, but over the last few years I have no interest in it. I barely watch it. Football?? I sometime show my curiosity to know the winner.. To be honest I am not big fan.


05. Love to read about Trump, Sriya, terrorist, Putin vs Trump, China vs US, India vs Pakistan.
Some major news attract me and I discuss these issue on other place, but I can not do it more than 10 minutes... becasue it always result in bad atmosphere

06. Travel
I wish I could but its expensive industry for me. I want to travel and talk about Africa and wildlife.. But the money...

07. Food
I am fan of drinks more than eating.. I love to try different type of local drinks specially made in hot summer. Wish I could write a blog in it and can share with all of you. I keep discussing with my wife.

08. Website creation, WordPress, themes and plugin, Website hosting
This is my profession so, I love to talk about them, even I consult for free while suggesting best hosting company, what is best wordpress theme.. etc


09. Startups businesses.
This is the era of new startups and investor. Young college people come with Idea and they try to find investor to make it reality. I love to read about them and I heavily discuss about them

10. online shopping, amazon, ebay  etc.
I find this is time consuming and extravagance activity. But since I love gadget and I keep searching these sites for them



This is some common and popular Niche or industry where your interest may lie and you will love to talk, read, watch and write about them with other. You can also mention your own if I missed them.

Why I am asking this ?

Well, I want to find most common interest so that I can launch another well managed and highly resourceful community of people on internet. What do you say ?

  Comparing Cats: A Discussion of Similarities and Differences between Felids
Posted by: tigerluver - 04-06-2017, 11:45 PM - Forum: Mature and Quality Information (Invite Only) - Replies (6)
It has been proposed quite a few times that comparison threads would interest many. However, usually these threads end up full of voices but still empty of information or constructive collaboration. Nonetheless, we do like interest. Thus, this thread will be our first step in experimenting within the realm of comparison. However, the guidelines of such discourse are going to be explicitly defined, and explicit observance of these guidelines is expected by posters. 

The guidelines are simple. When comparing, we want an approach that rests on evolution, adaptation, ecology, and the like. We strictly forbid the discussion of the "verses" debate and interspecific conflict in terms of fights. Posters who can comfortably work with the desired approach are welcomed and encouraged to join the thread. Those who are enthralled in the art of war will be at the least, banned from this forum at the team's discretion. Due to the fragile nature of the subject, take this paragraph as the official warning and therefore do not expect justification in case the team has to act. Now that the stage rules are set, let us dive in...

Comparing Cats: A Discussion of Similarities and Differences between Felids

*This image is copyright of its original author
The cat family (Felidae) is undoubtedly one of the most successful carnivorous mammals on the planet. Its origins can be traced back to around 25 MYA in Proailurus. From then until now, numerous species have come and gone. Today, just under 40 species survive. Each has a unique evolutionary history and thus a unique morphology, behavior, and general lifestyle. This leaves us plenty to discuss. 

While it is likely most will be interested in discussion of just the modern big cats, extinct species and the rest of modern cat family are invited to the table. If the thread spans to wide, a future separation may be in order, but until then, this experiment will continue with the aforementioned approach.

  Backyard Wildlife Fun!!!
Posted by: Peanut Man - 04-01-2017, 07:40 PM - Forum: Miscellaneous - Replies (14)
Hello everyone, about a year ago I started feeding the squirrels around my house peanuts and one started to come to me and take them from my hand... well, once the rest of the gang saw what was going on, I started to have the whole crew coming up for peanuts! I started to go outside and sit on a bench and have the squirrels come up... then the chipmunks joined in on the tasty vittles being handed out! I am hoping the birds start to come in, getting close and starting to wonder what else I can become buddies with! Here are some videos of my new friends!!!

  Pleistocene Extinction
Posted by: brotherbear - 03-28-2017, 02:40 PM - Forum: Extinct Animals - No Replies
I am interested in why so many huge herbivores and powerful predators went extinct after the last great Ice Age all over the earth.
 
https://www.researchgate.net/publication...xtinctions 
 
Abstract
Starting around 50,000 years ago, most large terrestrial animals went extinct in most continents. These extinctions have been attributed either to climatic changes, impacts of human dispersal across the world or a synergy among both. Most studies regarding these extinctions, however, have focused on particular continents or used low-resolution analyses. We used recent advances in fossil dating and past climatic models in a high-resolution quantitative analysis, comparing the explanatory power of the hypotheses at global scale. The timing of human arrival to each region was the best explanation for the extinctions. Climatic effects, where present, were additive rather than synergistic with human arrival. While climatic variation was a contributory cause that helped explaining the process, anthropogenic impacts were the necessary cause that drove it.
