Twitter Thread: The Truth About Fossils In The Appalachian Mountains

When it comes to nature, there are so many things left undiscovered. Every other week, we hear about a new species being found, an old extinct animal coming back into the world. We read interesting stories about nature all the time, like when a 392 year old shark was discovered or when a study was done that showed that sometimes octopus punch fish for no reason other than spite. 

There are always more facts to learn about the animal world. And today, you're about to learn about one of nature's mysteries. Thanks to @AlexPetrovnia, we had taken the time to thoroughly look into this mystery, you're about to learn about the truth behind why we don't find fossils in the Appalachian mountains.

Tumblr Thread: The 4 Foot Tall Red-Bearded Vulture

Guys, get ready to be scared and impressed all at the same time. We're about to give some love to yet another insanely underappreciated animal, but we're going to do it from the safety of our homes, because this bloody bird is a little terrifying. Meet the 4 foot tall red-bearded vulture. 

We know that birds are clawsome at this point, don't even lie. Parrots can impersonate different accents and be jerks to other pets. Crows sometimes collect gifts and bring them to people. And the red-bearded vulture? Well, the red-bearded vulture eats a diet of bones and covers itself in blood for a reason which, even after we read, we can't really comprehend. It's a cool bird though, and we always love learning more about the animal kingdom, even when it scares us a bit.

Tumblr Thread: The Gentle Giants Of The Horse World

If there is one animal that we believe does not get enough love, it's horses. Yeah, everyone knows what horses are, but does everyone know that horses are majestic galloping creatures of beauty? Do they know that horses get spooked by affectionate goats with pool noodles on their horns? Do people really know anything about horses other than people sit on them? We don't think so, so we think that it's time to learn.

We shall start with the most majestic galloping enormous horses of them all: draft horses. They are huge and gorgeous, they are the gentle giants of the horse world, and they are truly whinnying at life. And now, they're about to get the appreciation that they deserve. 

tumblr thread about draft horses | thumbnail includes two pictures of women sitting on draft horses 'Organism - I never made a post about draft horses. :T They are the gentle giants of the horse world, sometimes growing as large as 20 hands and over 2000 lbs. The tallest horse in the world is an American-type Belgian horse named Big Jake (I think???).'

AnimalLogic is back with a new fascinating video about an elusive and rare cat. Their last video about elusive cats was about the Sand Cat, known to be the king of the desert. Today we'll be learning about the Scottish Wildcat, less than 50 in the wild today, this cat is actually the rarest cat in the world. Yup, you heard that correctly. 

Being a cat, the Scottish wildcat is obviously adorable (like all cats of any size), and just like all wildcats, it has a reputation as a ferocious hunter. AnimalLogic mentions at one point in the video that this cat is not one you want to ever encounter... but after seeing just how cute these cats are I think it's safe to say we all wouldn't mind encountering them.
