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.

Description : Wolf #14F was killed by a moose in April 2000 on the Yellowstone River Delta just south of the Yellowstone Lake. A necorpsy of her remains revealed that she had broken her leg and it had mended itself (middle object in photo). A normal femur is below the pen for comparison. At the top of the photo is what was left of her skull upon recovery.
