Once we were blobs in the sea, and then fishes, and then lizards and rats and then monkeys, and hundreds of things in between. This hand was once a fin, this hand once had claws! In my human mouth I have the pointy teeth of a wolf and the chisel teeth of a rabbit and the grinding teeth of a cow! Our blood is as salty as the sea we used to live in! When we’re frightened, the hair on our skin stands up, just like it did when we had fur. We are history! Everything we’ve ever been on the way to becoming us, we still are.

I’m made up of the memories of my parents and my grandparents, all my ancestors. They’re in the way I look, in the colour of my hair. And I’m made up of everyone I’ve ever met who’s changed the way I think.

prehistoric-birds:

Pelagornis chilensis (by danielmartinezpina)
Those aren’t teeth, they’re sharp beak projections, hence the colloquial name “pseudotooth bird”. Not that you’d want to mess with one of these twenty-foot-wingspan prehistoric murdergulls either way. 
It seems to me that the natural world is the greatest source of excitement; the greatest source of visual beauty; the greatest source of intellectual interest. It is the greatest source of so much in life that makes life worth living.

The bottom-dwelling, jelly-bodied nudibranch might seem  an unlikely canvas for Mother Nature to express her wildest indulgences  of color and form. But these shell-less mollusks, part of the sea slug  family, bear some of the most fascinating shapes, sumptuous hues, and  intricate patterns of any animal on Earth.
I would like you to show me, if you can, where the line can be drawn between an organism and it’s environment. The environment is in you. It’s passing through you. You’re breathing it in and out. You and every other creature.
