Here’s a fresh take on a complex set of data. What if you took all the statistics about everyone in the world and boiled it all down into one question: what if the world was just 100 people? What if you took the billions and billions of people on Earth and made it so only 100 people could represent them? You’d get some super-simplified but interesting stats, that’s for sure.

In 2014 a giant salamander emerged from the Kamo River in Japan. Landed appearances of the giant creature are considerably rare due to them making their home underwater and being only active at night. Japanese giant salamanders are the second-largest salamanders on Earth, surpassed only by the closely related Chinese giant salamander. They feed on insects, frogs, crabs, shrimp, and fish; but since the 1950s, their population has declined rapidly due to habitat destruction and overhunting.

I cannot help thinking when I see all the pictures of Big Cats on Pinterest that it is a ode of farewell.  And mostly I don't like the pics because many are from zoo settings as the largest population of Big Cats are caged.
