Nature Factoids

Mark Trail was created in 1946 by Ed Dodd, as an adventure strip, but by the time I was collecting it, it had become an encyclopedia of nature factoids. Not very exciting, but the graphics were colorful and compelling. I've saved a lot of them, even to this day.

Mark Trail must have been collected and reprinted sometime in the late 60's or early 70's.I could swear i read it as a child.
I recall one (I believe it was mark trail) that explained how humans were predators because we shared the predatory trait of having our eyes on the front of our faces/heads and not off to the sides.

Neil, you need to work on your reading skills.

Neil, that last strip about animal control (from 1972) was a remarkable stance, for the time, advocating natural processes of control and condemning the practice of shooting the animals.
