Enjoy this run-down on Ten Huge Prehistoric Cats. That's an American lion in the pic.

Someone tries to rob the wrong Denny's in Houston.

Anthropologists at the NY Times discover the use of man camps for construction and operation of projects in remote areas of the West. Many of the projects I'm involved with permitting plan on using these. In fact, we may have a project next year where we have to set one up ourselves.

Here's an interesting article containing a series of interviews with author Jim Harrison, who has a new novel out. My favorite line from the article: “You’re from Escanaba. Shouldn’t you know what a pheasant looks like?”

If we regard the American and cave lions as the same species as the modern Asiatic and African lion, then the lion was actually the most widespread large Carnivoran (as in the Order Carnivora) in history. They have the wolf beaten by all of Africa.

If we consider them all to be members of the same species, of course, which is certain debatable.
