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.

Post any data on the evolution of whales, and we shall answer this one big question scientists still debate about. 

Why did their ancestors go into the water in the first place?

  Mustang: The Wild Horse of the West
Posted by: smedz - 04-11-2019, 03:56 AM - Forum: Herbivores Animals - Replies (3)
Here in North America, we have tons of species, including introduced animals like Wild boars, which have some pretty bad effects on the ecosystem. However, not all introduced species have a bad impact, in fact, mustangs, the wild horses of the west, have a great impact on the ecosystem. 

In winter, they will use their hooves to break through the deep snow to get to the grass, and they also break through frozen bodies of water with their hooves, and this, allows other species to survive the harsh winter months. One example is during the huge blizzard of 1886, when tons of cattle died, but some cattle lived, and those that did survive followed herds of wild horses. Another benefit of wild horses is that they can act as protectors of other prey species. Allow me to explain, When the wild horses of Anza Borrega National Park, California were removed in an effort to try to increase the bighorn sheep population, the number of bighorn sheep deaths ended up increasing because the cougars of the park, which hunted wild horses, simply turned more of their attention towards the sheep because the wild horses were removed. When it comes to grazing, wild horses are better for the plains than the cattle are because of the ways the 2 animals graze. Cows graze by wrapping their tongues around the grass since they don't have upper front teeth, and if the ground is wet, then the cow will grab a plant by the roots, and the grass will never have a second chance of growing back, horses are different, as they have upper front teeth, and flexible lips to grab the grass, then clip parts of the grass, and the grass can grow back.

  Red Wolf (Canis rufus)
Posted by: smedz - 03-29-2019, 05:56 AM - Forum: Canids (Canidae) & Hyaenids (Hyaenidae) - Replies (3)
The United States of America has some conservation success stories, like the Bald Eagle and the American Alligator, which were once on the Endangered Species List, but are now doing great thanks to good wildlife conservation. However, there are some animals in the USA that are still hanging in there, like the Red Wolf. Once common, now they're critically endangered, with only 40 individuals left in the wild according to recent news, so this thread is purely dedicated to anything on the Red Wolf.

  Pachycrocuta brevirostris and The Cave Hyena
Posted by: smedz - 03-15-2019, 09:17 PM - Forum: Extinct Animals - Replies (9)
These animals were perhaps the most formidable hyenas to ever live.  Post any data or anything you can find about these predators. I do have one big question for all the paleontological nerds here on the forum, did these hyenas have any big impacts on early humans?

  Camouflage & Habitat Shots
Posted by: Rishi - 03-06-2019, 08:16 PM - Forum: Wildlife Pictures and Videos Gallery - Replies (41)
As the name of the new thread suggests, this one is dedicated for images of animal's camouflaged as one with its habitat, making it hard to even spot. 

And habitat shots, where the background & surrounding are the subject too rather than the wildlife itself.
