Sample text

Belyaev, began selecting foxes for one trait only—tameness—and within forty generations of increasing tameness, he had produced what amounted to a new kind of dog, the domesticated foxes being fond of humans (though a bit catlike in their occasional bouts of independence) with curled tails, variegated color, smaller heads, and all the other attributes of most domesticated animals. These fox-dogs have not made it much farther into the world at large than their fox farm in Siberia. But the fox dog as a popular breed cannot be far off, for nothing is more appreciated in the world at large, it seems, than novelty.

Most domestic cats throughout the world are tabbies, with blotchy coats with stripes and spots. ) Those tabbies that are mostly gray are called agouti, after a South American rodent whose coat is similar, its guard (outer) hairs banded in at least two colors. Two types of THE TA MING OF THE CAT tabby patterns exist in domestic cats: (l) on which wavy vertical stripes run from the shoulder to the start of the tail, with those on the thighs tending to break up into spots, and (2) on which the stripes on the side of the body are horizontal, forming spiral-like patterns.

The grave dated back some 9,500 years. Only shortly before this time, some 14,000 or so years ago, people had begun to settle down in permanent villages in what we now think of as Greece, Turkey, and the Middle East and grow a lot of their food—wheat, barley, and so forth. This created a new ecological niche in the world—a storehouse of fresh grain. Nature may abhor a vacuum, but Nature gets giddy with delight at a new ecological niche. Food for mice, rats, and other rodents could now be found in concentrated areas called granaries, and they quickly found their way into these somewhat leaky cornucopias, some of them becoming a new species—the house mouse, for example, which is by now probably the most widespread mammal on earth besides Homo sapiens.
