    She was a formerly wild palomino mustang mare from the riding club I go past on my bike rides. I was letting her check out my bike, and the lady with her let me pet her some too. She even nudged my hand a little while I was petting her, which seemed to really surprise the lady, she said she doesn't usually like to say hi to people.
    I noticed that horses seem to like me, almost all of them I've met have been pretty quick to do that kind of stuff.

    Sploosh? They way she puts her trunk on her head is like a human putting their hand on their head when stressed.

    I got hang out with the lady with the mustang some more this morning, the lady even let me feed her a carrot and I got to walk her around in the round pen we were in for few minutes. It was the first time I've ever done either of those things.

    A new Loki the Raven video was posted a couple days ago.

    Another method sometimes used for reintroducing extinct creatures is to interbreed compatible species that have traits similar to the desired species. Might not be a true duplicate, but it can be argued that if it looks like a duck, walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it's a duck.

    Yep - and you actually can't really bring back creatures like that - the Earth is NOT the same world it was 65+ million years ago. Thinner air and a lower oxygen content both by volume and proportion.

    No dinosaur (or any other creature that survived and therefore adapted) would be able to breath properly - and even if they survived, would not grow to anywhere near their original size.

    That shouldn't be too much of an issue with the Tasmanian Tigers since they've only been extinct since 1936.

    Ahh, the rarely seen saltwater horse. Sort of a seahorse if you will.
