Wild animals in the field

November 10, 2008

I started the domesticated animals in the field meme a few days ago — it has now evolved into a wild animals in the field meme.

If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you probably have seen these already.

    Very cool photos! Especially the guanaco. New World camelids are so cute, aren’t they? At least to look at.

    I gotta know, though, how you get the condor to help. I’m working on Mt. Hamilton (school project, not real research) with a whole flock of turkey vultures in the area, and they’ve never once even volunteered to go look for blueschist, much less contacts.
