Today´s Quotation is from The Forest Unseen; A Year’s Watch in Nature by David George Haskell.
There is kinship with humans here. The first mammals were shrew-like creatures terrorizing the snails and centipedes of the Msozoic. Our ancestors were shrill and vicious, leading a caffeinated existence in dark corridors. An analogy with our current state of being is tempting. Thankfully we’ve lost the poison fangs and pungent glands.
