Well Snake, these hybrids are quite readily protected with great funds. I'd think that they would live pretty long unless if some virulent disease got to them, and if they weren't propely attended to. In the wild tho, I think they probably have a lower survival rate.

A holistic forum for zoologists? Wonder why this topic of zoos got brought up. Well ok, San Diego contains the rarest animals around, and has this double-decked bus ride that gives you a bird's eye view of the zoo. I don't see why you would despise it.

I was looking up some sites when I came across this site listing careers in marine biology. Looks like those who studies in deep sea mammals are just called simply "Marine mammal biologist."

Well, hemoglobin binds protons and CO2 to cause a conformational change in the protein and facilitates the release of oxygen. When the CO2 levels in the blood decrease ), carbon dioxide is released, increasing the oxygen affinity of the protein. So I'd think that blood during the disease of sickle c...

Actually no Inu, there are currently a pair of healthy 16-years-old Tigon twins in Australia's National Zoo. They were bred from a male Bengal Tiger and a lioness. The Australians are currently trying to provide and protect the two with the best facilities possible. Both big cats are on a diet as of...

O ok. I was wondering if Inu could post up a picture of a liger or something, cuz my comp tends to run pretty slow when loading sites with a lot of images, and they just end up with the text showing and the pictures not showing at all. It'll just be interesting to see it, that's all.

For the Lemmings: Yeah, my mistake about the lemmings. However, after checking up on my wrongness, them drowning in lakes and rivers do regulate their population. The natural diet for lemmings is moss, and as their numbers grow, their food supply grows pretty darn short. So they migrate (lemmings do...

Wouldn't this brain programming thing be kinda immoral too? I mean, I wouldn't want anyone treating me as a machine and insert chips into me and stuff.
