What if the organisms that populate the natural world—from whales to weevils—were classified not by their evolutionary relationships but by their relative degree of rarity? Ecologist Kevin Gaston estimated that perhaps 90-95% of all individual organisms on Earth represent no more than 20-25% of all species.
The group that has spearheaded the conservation of these single site rarities is the Alliance for Zero Extinction, which includes many major conservation groups as members.
Except, at least, in the island of Eleuthera in the Bahamas, where goats are a force for good in creating more wintering habitat for the rarest breeding songbird in North America, the Kirtland’s warbler. Rhinos are a good example of species that were once more common in the past few centuries and made rare by humans hunting them. So if we can recover even one of the largest, slowest breeding vertebrates in nature, we can recover many rarities threatened with extinction. There are many insights into how the natural world works that we can only glean by studying its rarities. In The Kingdom of Rarities, scientist Eric Dinerstein poses an intriguing question: What if the way we categorized the living world was reshuffled for a moment, from a system designed to inform us about evolutionary relationships among species to one with two camps based on abundance: the Kingdom of Common species and the Kingdom of Rarities? Can someone please help me im doing a poster of the top 10 rarest animals and i need facts about these animals. This is very educating, i hope to try my best to promote conservation in my environment from the knowledge i have from here.

Society Field Inspection 2016: Gulf of CaliforniaDescribed by Jacques Cousteau as the "aquarium of the world," the Gulf of California in Mexico is threatened by coastal development, climate change, and other human activities. Support National GeographicWe've supported more than 11,000 grants to scientists and others in the field.Learn more about our work. Two years after being discovered deep in a South African cave, the 1,500 fossils excavated during the Rising Star Expedition have been identified as belonging to a previously unknown early human relative that National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence Lee Berger and team have named Homo naledi. With at least 15 individuals of all ages and both sexes represented, the find adds an unprecedented amount of information to our understanding of early human evolution in Africa.
In addition, the absence of any other animal remains or large debris in the fossil chamber strongly suggests that these non-human beings intentionally deposited their dead within this cave. BANABA ISLAND, Kiribati—Asbestos dust covers the floors of Banaba’s crumbling colonial houses, buildings, and schools. In an unusual ambush, a Nile crocodile grabs onto an elephant's trunk at an African water hole. A routine trip to the water hole recently resulted in a life-or-death struggle for a pair of African elephants when they were ambushed by a hungry Nile crocodile (pictured).
During the attack, the elephants were able to move away from the water with the crocodile still hanging on to the adult (pictured). This particular clash of the titans had a happy endinga€”except perhaps for the hungry crocodile."The elephant managed to turn, but the croc was still hanging on," photographer Nyfeler said. In honor of April 18, we take a look at how science organizes and names speciesa€”sometimes with a sense of humor.
Mountains, wildlife, and wide open skies inspired more than great pictures for our photographer. From birds that remove their babies' "dirty diapers" to crows that store their tools, nature is full of orderly species. A giant cave column swagged in flowstone towers over explorers swimming through the depths of Hang Ken, one of 20 new caves discovered last year in Vietnam.

A half-mile block of 40-story buildings could fit inside this lit stretch of Hang Son Doong, which may be the world's biggest subterranean passage. Mist sweeps past the hills of Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park, its 330 square miles set aside in 2001 to protect one of Asia's largest cave systems. Going underground, expedition members enter Hang En, a cave tunneled out by the Rao Thuong River. Headroom shrinks in the middle of Hang En as cavers pass beneath a ceiling scalloped by eons of floodwater rushing past. Like a petrified waterfall, a cascade of fluted limestone, greened by algae, stops awestruck cavers in their tracks. Moss-slick boulders and a 30-foot drop test author Mark Jenkins at the forest-shrouded entrance to Hang Son Doong. Hang Son Doong's airy chambers sprout life where light enters from above—a different world from the bare, cramped, pitch-black spaces familiar to most cavers. Navigating an algae-skinned maze, expedition organizers Deb and Howard Limbert lead the way across a sculpted cavescape in Hang Son Doong. The trickiest challenge for the expedition team was to find a way over the Great Wall of Vietnam, an overhanging mass of flowstone that blocked the way deep inside Hang Son Doong. Dubbed the Great Wall of Vietnam, a 200-foot cliff halted the advance of the first team to enter Hang Son Doong, in 2009. In the dry season, from November to April, a caver can safely explore Hang Ken, with its shallow pools. Streams of light from the surface unveil stalagmites fat and thin on the floor of Hang Loong Con. China's rare-earth mining has given it dominance in the market for materials that go into everything from smart phones to electric cars, but the industry has exacted a toll on the country's landscape and people. At mines like this one in Jiangxi Province, China produces 95 percent of the world's rare-earth minerals, a key resource for the future of energy. Though rare-earth minerals, comprised of 17 elements on the periodic table are called rare, they are actually common. When combined with magnetic metals such as iron, rare-earth minerals create super-strong permanent magnets that are impossible to move with one's bare hands. Rare-earth metal composites make strong magnets because their crystal structure aligns its magnetic orientation in one direction, creating a strong pull. Lack of regulation and control over rare-earth mining activities has resulted in environmental damage. A villager, seen behind a field of dead crops, shovels scrap rare-earth mineral ore in Xinguang Village, Inner Mongolia. One of the most difficult scientific challenges is an attempt to make a rare-earth-free permanent magnet using a metal composite found in meteorites.
Rare-earth mining has created a huge industry for China, but has exacted a price on its environment, as seen in this pockmarked mining landscape.
Over the past two years, the Chinese government has made moves to consolidate the rare-earth mining industry, shutting down illegal mining companies and reportedly assembling an industry trade association in April.
New Zealand fur seals swim warily above a great white shark, the largest predatory fish in the seas. The Latin name for great white sharks, Carcharodon carcharias, literally means "ragged tooth," an understandable moniker. Great white sharks, like this one, use an uncanny sense of smell combined with a unique sensory system that detects bioelectric impulses in the water to find vulnerable prey up to miles away. With the tip of its classic dorsal fin protruding through the water's surface, a great white shark swims above a school of fish that are most likely too small for the behemoth to bother chasing down for an afternoon snack. Despite the widespread fear of these enormous predators, great white shark attacks are rarely fatal. Great whites have a dark gray upper body to camouflage them from above and a stark white underbelly to camouflage them from below. Near a seal colony in South Africa, a great white shark breaches, leaping for a decoy being pulled across the surface.
South African marine researchers lured a half-ton great white shark closer than anticipated—straight out of the water and into their vessel.

Home to sweeping landscapes and a nomadic culture that pre-dates the age of Genghis Khan, Mongolia offers a stunning array of photographic opportunities. Snap portraits of Mongolian throat singers, camel herders, and traditional nomad families, and learn about their age-old culture. Stay in an award-winning ger camp in the Gobi desert, and set off on photo hikes amid nearby gorges and dunes. Fill your lens with the vibrant pageantry of Naadam, Mongolia’s most celebrated festival, documenting wrestling, archery, and horse racing competitions. Meet with monks on a visit to Gandan Monastery in Ulanbaataar, and go on a photo shoot in the eccentric Winter Palace of Bogd Khan.
Spend the morning at a specially arranged photo shoot at the Gandan Monastery, Mongolia's largest functioning Buddhist monastery—one of the few to survive the Stalinist purges during the 1930s. This morning, join a senior U.S Embassy official for an introduction to the current political and economic climate over breakfast. Spend the day exploring the mountains and wetlands of the reserve on a photo hike or an optional horseback ride, and keep an eye out for endangered Argali mountain sheep and a number of endangered crane species. Soar over the vast steppe on a flight to the mystical Gobi, site of some of the most important paleontological discoveries of the 20th century. After breakfast, encounter the "Singing Sands," dunes known for the uncanny, deep groan the sand emits when the dunes' surface is disturbed.
Drive to Tugregiin Shiree, where paleontologists discovered the famous “Fighting Dinosaurs” fossil in the 1970s.
With your camera in hand, immerse yourself in the spirit and pageantry of Naadam—Mongolia’s centuries-old annual festival and sporting event.
After breakfast, transfer to the airport for your return flight, or continue on the extension.

For more than 30 years, Ira Block has covered assignments around the world for National Geographic magazine. In order to optimize photographic opportunities and allow for better access to our National Geographic photographer, this trip is limited to 16 travelers. Fishers recently captured a rare megamouth shark, similar to the one depicted in the image above, off the coast of Japan. This is only the 55th confirmed megamouth shark sighting since the first one was accidentally caught by a U.S. Staff at the Marine Science Museum in Shizuoka dissected the reportedly 1,500 pound (680 kilogram) megamouth (Megachasma pelagios) in a public presentation earlier this week (seen in the tweet above).
The megamouth shark’s most prominent feature is its large mouth—hence its common name. The second megamouth researchers observed was in the process of getting attacked by three sperm whales off the coast of Indonesia in 1998, according to the Florida Museum of Natural History.
The megamouth’s slow swimming speed and flabby body also make it an attractive target for other opportunists in addition to whales, such as the cookiecutter shark, Burgess says.
With every megamouth shark that comes to light, scientists learn more and more about this mysterious animal.
It was swimming enjoying itself before human intervention at over 2600 ft deep just as in most of the sightingsd of them especially in asia it ended up dead to be sold as meat for huge profits. Don’t apologize to the Japanese for Americans, or anyone else for that matter, being pissed for the ignorance of a selfish fisherman. For everyone who hasn’t noticed(if you did good) it was dead when they were caught it.
I see that Americans managed to shoot the first grey wolf that has appeared in Iowa since 1925. Los Animales merecen nuestro respeto y no me parece la forma mostrar un ejemplar creo que nos pueden decir mas si se estudian en su habitat y porsupuesto VIVOS! I see most of the horrible, racist things being said on this article are people from the USA . Why are yankees talking about how japanesse killed the shark if their country killed more people in the whole world by the culture diferences?
3) Although not in the article, this shark is mesoplegiac and when surfaced, it is extremely rare that they can be returned to the ocean since their bodies are designed for much higher pressures than at the surface. The following was so well put (along with others on this thread) that I will simply repost as my protest and request for NG to report these actions as the horrors they are. Most species wouldn’t be so rare if they were left in the sea long enough to reproduce! That thing is rare, why killing such a precious shark, it will soon be extinct, does that make sense? I really hope their breeding ground is not off the the coast of Japan somewhere or they are screwed! Once the deep-sea fish rise near the surface of the sea, they can’t live anymore, even if you free it to the sea. Shouldn’t National Geographic be covering the epidemic of needlessly killing rare animals for show? A century after British explorer Robert Scott reached the South Pole, "incredibly rich," rarely seen pictures give an inside look at the ill-fated expedition.
Moustache encrusted with ice, photographer Herbert Ponting stands on an iceberg near McMurdo Sound, Antarctica, in 1911.
One of Ponting's pictures shows sled dogs housed on the deck of the wooden whaler Terra Nova during her sail to Antarctica in 1910.Among the ship's cargo were 3 motor sledges, 162 mutton carcasses, 19 ponies, 33 dogs, and more than 450 tons of coala€”not to mention 65 people, from sailors to scientists. Members of the Terra Nova expedition nap in the sun while the ship battles "pack"a€”thick patches of sea icea€”in 1910.When the Terra Nova would get stuck in the roughly 400-mile (640-kilometer) expanse of ice, she seemed like "a living thing fighting a great fight," Scott wrote in a letter home. Expedition members give whiskey to a pony that swam ashore after being stuck on an ice floe in McMurdo Sound on February 8, 1911.While laying supply depots in preparation for the South Pole trek, the men encountered many challenges, including unreliable ice and blizzards. Expedition members repair reindeer-fur sleeping bags inside the Terra Nova hut on May 16, 1911.For the South Pole journey, the men wore warm, reindeer-fur boots called finneskos, oversize reindeer-fur mitts, and goggles to prevent snow-blindness.
Scott chose Petty Officer Edgar Evans (seen in 1910 or 1911) as one of the five men to take the finala€”and most difficulta€”part of the South Pole journey.The South Pole team set off in October 1911 with 16 men, 5 tents, 10 ponies, 23 dogs, 13 sledges, and several pairs of skis.
Lieutenant Henry Bowers (left) and biologist Edward Wilson read a temperature of -40 degrees Fahrenheit (-40 degrees Celsius) from a thermometer on a winter night in 1911.Winter temperatures along the Antarctic coast can dip as low as -70 degrees Fahrenheit (-57 degrees Celsius).

Dog handler Cecil Meares and Captain Lawrence Oates crouch near a seal-blubber stove on May 26, 1911."The stove gives great heat, but, of course, some blubber smell," Scott wrote in his journal.
Petty Officer Patrick Keohane finishes his model of the Terra Nova on August 10, 1911.Scott's men found several ways to entertain themselves during the sunless winter, such as using the pianola (a type of piano), putting on educational slide shows, and listening to the gramophone. Men emerge from the Terra Nova hut on September 17, 1911a€”a relatively "warm" spring day of -15 degrees Fahrenheit (-26 degrees Celsius).The 12,447-foot-tall (3,794-meter-tall) Mount Erebus, Earth's southernmost active volcano, looms in the distance. Herbert Ponting shows a slide show from his Japanese travels on May 29, 1911."Tonight Ponting gave us a charming lecture on Japan with wonderful illustrations of his own," Scott wrote in his journal. Norwegian ski expert Tryggve Gran executes a turn in October 1911.Gran, who was a sub-lieutenant on the expedition, also gave ski lessons to the South Pole trekkersa€”most of whom had little experience on skis. The odd-looking maleo (above, right) has been given 36 acres (14 hectares) of "luxury" protected coast on the Binerean Cape in northern Sulawesi, the Wildlife Conservation Society announced this week. Found only in Sulawesi, the chicken-size maleo—listed as endangered by the International Union for Conservation of Nature—lays its eggs to incubate in the sun-baked sands and then leaves. Fewer than a hundred nesting sites remain, "so every one counts," Noviar Andayani, country director for the Wildlife Conservation Society, said in a statement. To commemorate the birds' new refuge, conservationists and local people recently released four maleo chicks (above, left).
Now owned by the local nonprofit Pelestari Alam Liar dan Satwa, the beach was purchased for about U.S.

Imagine a way of looking at the world where we divide the ark into representatives of two kingdoms: the Kingdom of Common species and the Kingdom of Rarities. The goats prefer the shrubs that compete with the fruiting-shrubs that form a large part of the winter diet of the warbler. But the southern white rhino, now threatened by poachers again, is perhaps the greatest success story for conservation: numbering no more than 60 individuals and limited to a single reserve around 1900, the current estimate is above 20,000 and now spread among more than 450 populations. The challenge is that it is often much harder for scientists to study rare species than to study common ones. Posters and commenters are required to observe National Geographic's community rules and other terms of service.
To learn firsthand what's going on in and around this marine treasure of global importance, the National Geographic Society sent its top scientists and officials to the region in January 2016. Dwindling to a series of ponds during the dry months, the river can rise almost 300 feet during the flood season, covering the rocks where cavers stand.
The river shortly reemerges onto the surface, then burrows into Hang Son Doong after a few miles. This unusually large collection of stone spheres formed drip by drip over the centuries as calcite crystals left behind by water layered themselves around grains of sand, enlarging over time. Climbing specialists "Sweeny" Sewell and Howard Clarke here work on anchoring bolts to the slippery, porous rock to support the weight of climbers using ropes. When explorers returned, Sewell drilled bolts for climbers to scale the obstacle with ropes.
Come the monsoon, the underground river swells and floods the passages, making the cave impassable. A survey party discovered the cave in 2010, hoping it would connect with the enormous Hang Son Doong. But they are scattered in small amounts within soil such as that pictured here, at a port in Jiangsu Province, China. Department of Energy says that deployment of clean energy technology could be slowed in the coming years by supply challenges for at least five rare-earth metals. Scientists are trying to establish greater rare-earth independence by finding ways to use less or no rare earth in magnets. Ordinary magnetic materials like iron do not have this property and can be easily demagnetized. The Chinese government says one reason it wants to restrict rare-earth exports is to protect the environment. Scientists in the United States are trying to make a magnet more than twice the strength of today's strongest rare-earth magnet with 30 to 40 percent less rare earth by making the magnet at nano-scale. Scientists in the United States are also trying to make a rare-earth permanent magnet from cerium, one of the most abundant rare-earth metals in the world.
China used to export almost all its rare-earth metals, but increasingly needs more of it for its own industrial uses. Above, a worker at the Excel Machine Technologies workshop in Valparaiso, Indiana, welds metal for steel. The composite of iron overlaid on nickel overlaid on another layer of iron takes a billion years to form in nature. China has said the moves are an effort to improve environmental regulation of the industry, but consolidation will also make it easier for China to control exports. But archaeologists are increasingly confronted with demands to let past generations rest in peace. But in South Africa waters full of baby seals, sharks attack from below with ferocious speed, propelling them out of the water with their catch. Most of the attacks are "sample bites" from the curious fish as they try to decide whether to go through the effort of a full attack. Travel through the vast steppe to capture images of Mongolian horses, traditional ger camps, and camel-herding families.

Listen to the horns calling lamas and monks to temple, and capture the monks' daily rituals while visiting the adjoining Megjid Janraisig and Kalachakra Temples.
Then drive east to Gun-Galuut, a nature reserve near the Khentii Mountains where the steppe converges with stunning wetlands. In the afternoon, pay a visit a local nomadic family for a rare chance to photograph everyday life in rural Mongolia. Along the way, stop to frame a 131-foot-tall Genghis Khan equestrian statue, and venture into small villages to document daily traditions that existed during the era of Genghis Khan. Over the next four days, photograph the wildlife and varying landscapes of the desert, home to Bactrian camels, Argali mountain sheep, and saker falcons, as well as rare species such as snow leopards and Gobi bears. Stop in at the camp of a camel herding family and experience traditional Mongolian hospitality and another chance to photograph the details of daily life here.
Travel to Yolyn Am, or Eagle Valley, a dramatic chasm that cuts a narrow path through the foothills of the arid Altai Mountains. Venture into the Winter Palace of the Bogd Khan, home of Mongolia's last theocrat and eighth Living Buddha. Dressed in traditional garb, participants compete in the “three manly sports”: wrestling, archery, and horse racing. Service is not always up to Western standards, and disruptions to the country's infrastructure can necessitate changes to our itinerary. Last week a fisher off the coast of Florida caught the second goblin shark ever seen in the Gulf of Mexico.
Navy research vessel off the coast of Oahu, Hawaii, in 1976. There have been several other dubious megamouth reports, says George Burgess, director of the Florida Program for Shark Research at the Florida Museum of Natural History in Gainesville.
The shark’s remains are on display at the museum, according to the Japan Daily Press.
The animal uses its giant maw for filter feeding, much as whale sharks and basking sharks cruise the ocean with their mouths open, straining tiny animals called plankton out of the water, says Burgess.
Researchers were able to affix a tag to one megamouth shark off the coast of California in 1990 and track it for two days. This small shark sneaks up on animals in order to bite off chunks of flesh, leaving a crater-shaped divot behind.
This could be because the sharks are naturally abundant there, or it could be simply that, because the area is heavily fished, people are more likely to encounter a megamouth here. These disgusting people are the same type that kill our precious species and are destroying our earth – rhino horn for impotence or a gorilla’s hand for an ashtray or let’s kill dolphins by trapping them in a cove – barbarians were more civilized.
I was excited thinking NG had put on a tracking device and marine biologists would continue to gove us updates. While the animal is rare, I would hope that nat geo cover rare animals in their natural habitat, alive, and not bloody in the hands of hunters. Ponting was part of the scientific staff on the 1910-1912 Terra Nova expedition to the South Pole.British explorer and expedition leader Robert Falcon Scott reached the Pole on January 17, 1912. There are about 600 places in the world that contain one or more species who call that spot the only place on Earth they can be found. Goats are a scourge when it comes to conserving rarities, especially when it comes to goats on islands, where these introduced herbivores mow down the vegetation and cause the extinction of rare plants. By eating out the shrubs the Kirtland’s avoid, the goats leave more space for the plants whose fruits the birds like to eat. The Hawaiian archipelago is America’s Galapagos that hosts more creatures—a group of birds called the honeycreepers, fruit flies, and many kinds of plants like the silverswords—that rival or surpass what Darwin found on the Galapagos. One of the rarest of large mammals, the greater one-horned rhinoceros of Nepal and India, produces up to 24 kilograms in a single defecation.
But if we are to save some semblance of our natural world for future generations, the roster of rarities plays an important role that I hope my book helps to illuminate.
Eric Dinerstein is Lead Scientist and Vice President of Conservation Science at World Wildlife Fund-US. They toured the desert islands off the southeastern coast of the Baja Peninsula and they listened to presentations by more than a dozen experts, including several whose Baja California research is funded by the Society. As "Sweeny" Sewell climbs to the surface, hikers struggle through the wryly named Garden of Edam.
In the jungles directly beneath roof openings, explorers have seen monkeys, snakes, and birds. A wall of boulders soon blocked the way, but a powerful draft indicated that a large cavern lay on the other side. They play an important role in the coatings, magnets, and phosphors used in green technology, such as photovoltaic thin film panels, fluorescent lighting, wind turbines, and electric vehicles. The strength of these rare-earth-enhanced magnets have helped to miniaturize electronics and to reduce weight in electric cars. Some projects under way include making a rare-earth-lean magnet by using nanotechnology and creating a rare-earth-free magnet by mimicking a metal composite found in meteorites. Here, farmers who live near rare-earth mining operations in Inner Mongolia discuss what they say are health effects caused by contamination of their fields. The reason: The pull between the atoms at less than 20 nanometers apart is especially robust. Catch the towering dunes of the Gobi at sunrise and the brilliant Flaming Cliffs at sunset, and spend a thrilling day documenting Naadam, Mongolia’s most celebrated festival. This afternoon, visit the National Museum to get an overview of Mongolia's history and culture.
Enjoy the rest of the day to explore the area on hikes or an optional horseback ride, photographing stunning vistas and the wildlife of the reserve.
Stop in Gegeet Valley, the habitat of the elusive snow leopard, en route to the Khongoryn Els, a 60-mile stretch of rippling sand dunes that soar up to 600 feet and trace the edge of the Altai range.
Set out on a photo hike through this lush spot, looking for native vultures called lammergeiers, ibex, and gazelles. Focus on the architectural details of this ornate monument that somehow escaped destruction during the reign of Stalin. His enchantment with Asian culture led to “The Samurai Way,” a story he shot in Japan, and “Restless Spirits,” featuring the Terra Cotta soldiers of Xi'an, China. The gers (felt-lined canvas tents) at Hovsgol Nuur, Gun-Galuut, and Khongoryn Els are basic and comfortable, with traditional Mongolian beds (twin size) and toilet and shower facilities in a separate bathhouse.
Small, shrimp-like animals called krill are believed to make up a large portion of the megamouth’s diet. The male shark spent its days in 492 feet (150 meters) of water, ascending to 49 feet (15 meters) at dusk. Some megamouths that have been examined showed evidence of scarring believed to be the result of attention from cookiecutter sharks. Catching this big fish is also not good for the fisherman, actually it can be a loss for the business. National Geographic really should not show this as a scientific discovery but as a senseless act of violence. Some are as large as the Javan rhinoceros or as small as 13 species of tiny frogs in the same genus that live on top of a single mountain in Haiti. The Kirtland’s warbler may also be the only species with a college named after it: Kirtland’s Community College near Grayling, Michigan. Had The Beagle landed in Hawaii instead of the Galapagos, we would likely be celebrating Hawaii as the cradle of evolutionary thinking. On March 13, the United States, Japan, and European Union filed a World Trade Organization complaint against China for restricting exports of these minerals and driving up prices. Here, samples of rare-earth compounds are displayed in a showroom at Inner Mongolia Baotou Steel Rare-Earth Hi-Tech Company, China's largest rare-earths producer. The farmers told AFP that their bodies and livelihoods had been poisoned by toxic waste from the industry. The Colorado-based company Molycorp has reopened the mine and said in an online release that it was on track to meet its rare-earth oxide production targets by the end of this year.
Examine exhibits on nomadic life, including Stone and Bronze Age artifacts, traditional costumes, and sacred relics.
Catch the sunset on this stunning and remote desert landscape, and spend the night in a nearby ger camp. After lunch, settle into your deluxe ger at Three Camel Lodge, voted in 2009 one of the "Top 50 Eco-lodges" by National Geographic Adventure magazine. Hike down into the gorge to photograph the breathtaking span of desert landscape and crimson cliffs, and capture the shifting palette of sunset. This daily pattern of migrating up and down in the water is fairly common for open ocean animals of all sizes, says Burgess. Certainly you will bring up unusual things from this depth, not your typical fish we eat day to day.
I have known about the mega mouth shark since I was a kid and I am determined to learn more. Late afternoon, drive to Havtsgait Valley, site of ancient rock drawings left by early Gobi settlers. The creatures are following food, he explains, as well as spending time in different water temperatures to maintain bodily functions like digestion or growth. Road conditions can be very rough, and activities necessitate that travelers must be in good health and have no limitations on physical mobility. Those who have actually read and understood the article know the shark was not killed on purpose!!!!!
Please understand that most of us Americans are very ignorant and spoiled, and will often take our stupidity to the internet.
