Square Roots

Since the down of the agriculture and the human civilization itself ten thousand years ago people are tend to constrain and contain the nature, put it into the strictly-defined limits. This is how we are transforming our area of habitat, this is what defines us as a specie.

The nature says nothing against it. It is silent. It uses all the space available for growth and proliferation. If we draw it in squares, nature will shape itself in squares even though there are no perfect squares and cubes in the wild. Nature will fit the ever changing environment not matter if it is changing due to cosmic reasons or by the will of the people.

Here are some good illustrations for this. In urban environment trees are shaping their root system to replicate the man-made patterns: squares, cubes, octagons…

Python Eating Goanna

Carnivores aren’t really picky about their prey. They hunting herbivores and carnivores and anyone who looks tasty enough.

The python is eating the goanna, Australian monitor lizard.

Very Patient Dogs

Fifteen thousand years passed since the time when the first gray wolves were tamed, domesticated and turned into dogs by our distant ancestors. It was enough to make the dogs our closest friends. Fifteen thousand years of artificial selection, make dogs obedient and helpful companions.

However, not all the dogs are born equal. Some of them are really mischievous little devils, some of them just born to have fun and take from life everything, but some of them are real stoics. They won’t even flip a treat from the top of their muzzles without masters’ permit.

3. Toys are good for obedience testing too

4. Patience is a virtue of dogs of any sizes
