Gould, Stephen Jay: A professor of geology and zoology at Harvard University since 1967. Various groups evolved out of these early reptiles including crocodiles, dinosaurs and birds, but most importantly to us a strange group of animals called the Mammal-like Reptiles. Johanson discovered Lucy (at that time the oldest, most complete hominid skeleton known) in 1974, and the following year unearthed the fossilized remains of 13 early hominids in Ethiopia. Both the gecko and the scorpion are at the same temperature as the air surrounding them.

Tigers prefer large prey such as sambar, gaur and wild water buffalo because they provide more meat and last for many days, avoiding the need for another hunt. Peek [ 317 ] stated that when mature forests are burned or cut, white-tailed deer may shift to adjacent areas during the severest times of winter; otherwise, they prefer the seral growth on the burned or cut areas, which is likely to provide excellent forage.

The marsupials constitute the crown group of the Metatheria, and include all living metatherians as well as many extinct ones; the placentals are the crown group of the Eutheria. Rodents are often considered a nuisance, but their success at survival under the most extreme conditions is undisputed. Following a January prescribed fire in "improved" pastures at the Kerr Wildlife Management Area, white-tailed deer in a 1,065-acre (2,631 ha) enclosure temporarily shifted their home ranges to unburned areas, but then returned when vegetation greened up and generally expanded their use of the burned area due to increased availability of forage [ 25 ].
