Evolution in all its "glory"
My personal guess is that when we burn ourselves out, one way or another, it will be the Super "rats" versus the Super "Crows" I know this because I have first hand knowledge of evolution in the Crow community.
Magpies (which are crows btw) have decided that the coconut lining in my hanging baskets is perfect nesting material. I caught one at it and within an hour I have six different Magpies up to the same trick. I had to take my baskets inside and I gave them some older used coconut lining from the compost bin. Mighty clever with a capital "S".
