Angry #1 Extinction Thread: Muds Make Species Go Extinct / Only Whites Care About Animals




Mexico City's 'water monster' nears extinction
The axolotl, a key part of Aztec legend and diet, faces new threats



MEXICO CITY - Beneath the tourist gondolas in the remains of a great Aztec lake lives a creature that resembles a monster — and a Muppet — with its slimy tail, plumage-like gills and mouth that curls into an odd smile.

The axolotl, also known as the "water monster" and the "Mexican walking fish," was a key part of Aztec legend and diet. Against all odds, it survived until now amid Mexico City's urban sprawl in the polluted canals of Lake Xochimilco, now a Venice-style destination for revelers poled along by Mexican gondoliers, or trajineros, in brightly painted party boats.

But scientists are racing to save the foot-long salamander from extinction, a victim of the draining of its lake habitat and deteriorating water quality. In what may be the final blow, nonnative fish introduced into the canals are eating its lunch — and its babies.

[snip]

About 20 years ago, African tilapia were introduced into Xochimilco in a misguided effort to create fisheries. They joined with Asian carp to dominate the ecosystem and eat the axolotl's eggs and compete with it for food. The axolotl is also threatened by agrochemical runoff from nearby farms and treated wastewater from a Mexico City sewage plant, researchers say.
Local fisherman Roberto Altamira, 32, recalls when he was a boy, and the axolotl was still part of the local diet.

"I used to love axolotl tamales," he says, rubbing his stomach and laughing.

But he says people no longer eat axolotls, mainly because fishermen almost never find them.

"The last one I caught was about six months ago," says Altamira, a wiry gondolier with rope-like muscles from years of poling through Xochimilco's narrow waterways.

On a 9-foot-wide canal covered by a green carpet of "lentejilla" — an aquatic plant that resembles green lentils — Zambrano's researchers test water quality and search for axolotls. The air smells of sulfur and sewage.

The mexicans are culture destroyers and have no respect for nature. They are replicating this same insanity in Texas. (Because they ignorantly and carelessly dump their aquariums in the local creeks) - an extremely rare isolated Texas minnow is nearly extinct -in less than 3 years! The south american algae eaters the mexicans dumped into the streams have multiplied like rats and almost completely wiped out the native fish!

Other invasive cases:

There have even been confirmed cases reported where in Texas streams, -south american PACU fishes were caught - It is a cousin of the pirahna and also has menacing teeth!

Just proves that the mayans and aztecs are invasive and nonnative species to Northren U.S. America. They want to turn our country into a third world cesspool via the jew and turn Whites in to the same predicament as the axolotl. This should be a clear sign that they are willing to destroy much more than Lake Xochimilco.

Parallels our own situation.

A unique and endangered species is near extinction and all the Afro-mestizo can think of is filling his belly with a tamale made from it.

I'm glad you caught that Mark - that is precisely why I posted this news story. Plus I do love nature and I hope they save this fascinating little animal.

Save The Salamanders! Vanquish The Mexicans!

I recall reading that species in South America are dying out faster than they can be identified by biologists. Saving the rain forest and no offending muds tends to cancel out any efforts made by liberal dumbies since they back down quickly when the local authorities tell them to scram.

Yeah, I've been accosted with that since elementary school in the early 80's. It wasn't until I cast-off my mis-education that I realized the statement implies its own denial.

Regarding the snake article:

I don't get the Corn guy. There were so many of these snakes in that one area that they took over a house--Indiana Jones style. Then he implies there aren't many around?

Still a neat story, though. A bit like going from the penthouse to the outhouse, but I'm sure they don't mind.

Some organization put out a report on the status of wildlife in Vietnam this past summer. The Vietnamese are literally eating loads of animals into extinction, many of them rare and they are being consumed for all kinds of silly reasons.

Quote:
Vietnam species 'risk extinction'

Experts in Vietnam have warned that the Vietnamese could be eating a number of wild species into extinction.

The chairman of the Vietnam Zoology Association said animals at risk included the rhinoceros, the white-handed gibbon, the civet and the tapir.

He said that demand for wild animal meat had spread from mountain communities to rich urban areas.

Some 200 species are traded in Vietnam - 80 of them rare, according to the Thanhmien News.

The most common ones include snakes, monitor lizards, pangolins, turtles, wild cats, tigers, leopards, bears, elephants, wild boars, deer, monkeys, chamois and porcupines, the newspaper said.

It quoted Prof Dang Huy Huynh, the Vietnam Zoology Association chairman, as saying that wildlife meat was now served in many Vietnamese restaurants and resorts.

An estimated 3,400 tonnes of wild meat - or a million individual animals - are consumed each year, 18% of them illegally, an official from Vietnam's national assembly said.

More than 66% of poached wildlife is used for food, 32% is exported, and a small number of animals are used for pets and medicinal purposes, another official was quoted as saying.

The experts were speaking at a conference for discussing ways to protect Vietnam's wildlife and natural resources.

It was the first time an advising body to the ruling communist party has been involved in efforts to raise awareness about the illegal wildlife trade, according to Traffic, a wildlife trade monitoring network that took part.

They can eat as many tapirs as they want.

No. Snakes often hibernate in the same location. So, if this house were shut down, it might kill most of the snakes in particular area in one swoop, if they found their normal hibernation place closed for business.

Ah. . .I think I understand. In a given area, snakes tend all to hibernate together, in an accustomed place. (Snakes of a scale den tail to tail?) If evicted, they'd freeze before finding new digs. Thus no more snakes--or at least a tremendous population drop. It'd be like if Florida closed from September to March.

Similar to salmon returning to a particular stream to spawn. Nature's something else.

I'm imagining someone rehabilitating a similar house, then finding come winter many unexpected guests. Caveat emptor!

As the muds themselves being closer to the animal kingdom, closer to nature. It´s their natural drive. They couldn´t help it.....

pangolins eaten near extinction

Quote:
Pangolins, native to Asia and Africa, are the world's only mammals with true scales made of keratin. Despite international trade bans, pangolin meat and scales still fetch high prices on the black market. Demand is especially high in China and Vietnam, where pangolin parts are used in medicine and served as a culinary delicacy.

We know well which parts they use for "medicine". Those are the same parts you see missing first on an open Coolie housepet meat market.
