Stuff About Me:

A few weeks ago, I had to write a paper on the evolution of an animal of my choice.  I chose the African Elephant.  With it's tusks being larger than the Asian Elephant, they are more succeptable to poaching.  Although the evolution of their tusks (essentially caused by the hunting and poaching of dominant males with larger tusks) has caused them to evolve.  They have evolved in such a way that the remaining males with smaller tusks produce males with smaller tusks, and so on a so forth.  In a way, this is profound - evolution usually takes place over the course of thousands of years, while this has taken place over a century and a half.  However, these smaller tusks keep the elephants from defending themselves when they are in harm's way.

I am a lover of all that is science.  Evolution, chemical reactions, compounds, unexplainable events, and animals.  The elephant has really grabbed my heart, and I want to do whatever it takes to secure their livelihood.
