The Shrinking Problem

So, I am avoiding reading some Lysias for a few moments and I took the time to read a New York Times article about ancient horses. I was really interested in the the ancient horse relatives since I did a presentation on the Equus Occidentalis whichis one of the varieties of North American ice age horses in second grade. Anyway, this article caught my attention because it explained that the earliest ancestor of the horse, the Sifrhippus shrunk due to global warming, and, this of course has implication for modern mammals with the current rate of warming.

Food for thought. Back to work...
