The Making Of The Cat
The Making Of The Cat R. Roger Breton Nancy J Creek ------------------------ Soup or Sandwich IN THE VERY BEGINNING, about 4.6 billion years ago (give or take a few years), a small ball of rock, water and gas had come to be and immedi- ately set about the process of combining its atoms into more and more complex arrangements. Thus began that most wondrous story, the evolu- tion of life on Earth. For the first 2.1 billion years of the Earth\'s existence, the Archeo- zoic Era, life very slowly evo

In the southeast the Hombori Mountains rise to 1155 m (3789 ft), and in the southwest the Bambouk and Mandingue mountains are separated by an area of sandy lowlands north and northwest of the Niger River, which cuts an arc across Mali. The northern third of the country lies within the Sahara. In the west is a part of the Sahel, a semiarid transitional zone between areas of savanna and the Sahara desert. Cl

Cheetah endangered species
cheetah endangered species The cheetah originated about 4 million years ago. The oldest fossils place it in what is now Texas, Nevada and Wyoming. It was common throughout Asia, Africa, Europe. All cheetah in Europe and most of those in Asia and Africa vanished. This "bottleneck", as theorized, led to the present state of cheetah genetics: all cheetah alive today appear to be as closely related as identical twins. A unique factor of the cheetah is that it reaches up to speeds of 110 km/hr (68 Mp

Tropical Savannas
Tropical Savannas
Tropical Savannas Savannas are part of the Grassland biome, and are generally found in regions dominated by the Wet-Dry Climate. Tropical Savannas encompass almost one half of the entire continent of Africa as well as many parts of Australia, India, Mexico, and South America. The Tropical Savannas in Australia take up over one-third of the country, and provide natural resources that contribute much of the money that supports the national economy. The Climate is the most important factor in cre
South Africa
South Africa
South Africa South Africa is the southernmost part of the continent of Africa. It is one of the earth's oldest and stable landmasses. This is why there are no folded mountain ranges. The only mountain ranges that are similar to that kind of range, would be those in the southern tip. This is where the north-south ranges meet an east-west range in the Paarl area. The rest of the country has been slightly pitted so that interior lakes like the Okovango Delta have no outlet to the sea. Most of the c
