Wink Species of the Day
As you all know, it is an demostrable, objective fact that biology is the greatest of all the sciences, and everyone is fascinated by it. It is due to this that I conceived the idea of a thread wherein each day, I -- or some other -- shall post the name of -- and information about -- a species: extinct or extant. Being the founder of this thread, it is only fitting that I begin:


Balaenoptera musculus (Blue Whale)

The Blue Whale is famously the largest known animal to ever exist, and a comparison to the size of humans can be seen above. The organism feeds almost exclusively on krill and can eat up to 40 million a day.

Hm.. Taxonomy.
Try to go to your local pet store and find this:
Xiphophorus variatus
Xiphophorus maculatus
Xiphophorus helleri
I bought these for like $4 each.

What is the second largest though?
The second largest AFTER the Blue whale is:
Carcharodon megalodon or Carcharocles megalodon

Today's Species:


Homo Neanderthalensis (Neandertal)

The most recently extinct member of the genus Homo, Neandertals were so similar to humans, some people consider it a subspecies to Homo Sapiens. From what we can tell, they had a spoken language, burial rituals, and made art for caves. Their cranial capacity was larger than ours, and they were likely stronger than us.

Didn't we interbreed with them a bit?

I'd really love to do that 23&me thing just to see if I have any neandethal ancestry. Fascinating!

Alright the demon has come. Prepare for animals you never thought existed. Starting with the phylum placazoa.

This belongs to the subkingdom parazoa, which also includes porifera.

This animals are simple and small. They also lack true tissues.

There is only one extant species known is Trichoplax adhaerens.

They reproduce asexually and sexual if the population was dense enough.

It is said to have first evolve 550 million years ago .

It has begun.Evil_monster
