Adam et Ève by Jean Grosjean

By Jean Grosjean

Adam s'est figuré qu'il avait entendu bruire des paroles. Il a ouvert les yeux sur l. a. luminosité d'un jardin. Des lueurs d'ombre se mêlaient à l'éclat des reflets. Il a tendu los angeles major, il a touché une feuille de géranium et il en a senti l'odeur. Est-ce qu'une locomotive n'avait pas longuement sifflé dans l. a. nuit d'un tunnel ? Est-ce que les débardeurs n'ont pas crié en langue inconnue ? Et on est jeté là. Adam s'imaginait un passé mais il respirait l. a. présence d'une feuille. Il a regardé briller les buis et se pencher les roses. Des cailloux scintillaient sur le sol. Il a levé les yeux vers les frondaisons à travers lesquelles transparaissaient des fragments d'azur. Quand les doigts de los angeles brise lui ont frôlé l. a. joue, il s'est dressé mais elle était partie. Adam aussi seul que le Crusoé. Seul et pas seul à reason des bruissements de brindilles. Et puis il y avait cette lumière du soir dont parleront Moïse et Zacharie.

Sample text

And although some zoologists have suggested that the living clouded leopard of South Asia qualifies as an incipient form of sabertooth because of its long canines, the similarities between sabertooths and this extant felid are limited and rather superficial. The history of sabertooths spans an enormous length of geological time. Although the latest species, such as the famous Smilodon fatalis from Rancho la Brea, disappeared “only” ten thousand years ago, the earliest mammalian sabertooths lived some 50 million years ago (or Ma) in the Eocene of North America.

Therapsid sabertooths were obviously predatory too, but – unlike other sabertooths – they lacked any substantial dentition behind their canines, and they would have swallowed large chunks of meat whole, in truly reptilian fashion. Other groups of mammals have developed elongated upper canines, more or less like sabers in appearance, but their function is related to display, defense, intraspecific aggression, or the manipulation of food items, rather than the hunting of large prey. Therefore, these creatures – including the extant musk deer, chevrotains, and walruses, as well as the bizarre, Sabertooth vaguely rhino-like uintatheres of the American Eocene – do not qualify as sabertooths.

34 the carcasses of the first victims started a “chain reaction” of carnivore trappings, so this is not a carnivore trap in the full sense. Incarcal Another site that may have operated partly as a carnivore trap is Incarcal, in Girona, in northeastern Spain. This is a complex of karst cavities (nine cavities are currently known) in Pliocene lacustrine limestone filled with fossiliferous sediments. Similar cavities, or sinkholes, exist today in the vicinity of Lake Banyoles, not far from Incarcal, and they fill up when the water table is high.
