#MineralMonday: Barite specimen from Spain. Barite is the major source of barium (Ba) used to manufacture paint pigments, color fireworks green, and make barium "milkshakes" that highlight patients' digestive tracts for xray imaging. #barite #minerals #mineralspecimen #crystals #geology #geologist #fireworks #xray #nmnh

Three-toed sloth (Bradypus variegatus). With hook-like claws, sloths hang around in the canopy dining exclusively on leaves. Most mammals couldn’t survive on a diet of low-protein—and sometimes toxic—leaves. But slow-moving sloths have a special digestive system helps them neutralize leaf toxins while an extremely slow metabolism and low body temperature conserve energy. Two-extra neck vertebrae help them swivel their heads nearly 270° without using energy to move their bodies. #sloth #sloths #slothlife #mammals #nmnh

Common birds are not extinction-proof. Exhibit A is the #PassengerPigeon. Billions lived in North America in the 1800s, but their dense nesting colonies were easy targets for hunters and by 1914 they were gone. Similarly, hundreds of bird species once common in Hawaii have been wiped out by human impacts. Learn more about #bird extinctions on Dec. 11, when Smithsonian #ornithologist Helen James shares her findings about the demise of some #Hawaiian birds during our live #ScienceHow webcasts. #ornithology #Martha100 #OnceThereWereBillions #sciencehow #qrius #nmnh
