People often think of fire as a destructive force, and it can be. But fire also rejuvenates the land. Many grasses have evolved root systems that survive fires so they can be renewed, and some trees and other plants have seeds that only germinate after a fire has come through. Plus fires clean out old dead wood and other debris, making it easier for fresh plant life to grow. 

It’s like a picture of the tide coming in, somewhere in the Elemental Chaos.

"Here I am, dear, waiting for you"
A crowned eagle (Stephanoaetus coronatus) brings a snake home to its mate. Snakes are some of the smaller prey that crowned eagles hunt. They routinely eat bushbuck (a mid-sized antelope) and large monkeys.
While most birds of prey have a breeding cycle that lasts around 6 months, the crowned eagle’s breeding cycle lasts more than 500 days.
