The Golden Section in Nature: Animals
There are many examples of the Golden Section or Divine Proportion in nature.
Below are just a few:
The eye, fins and tail all fall at golden sections of the length of a dolphin’s body. The dimensions of the dorsal fin are golden sections (yellow and green). The thickness of the dolphin’s tail section corresponds to same golden section of the line from head to tail.
The spiral growth of sea shells provide a simple, but beautiful, example.
Every key body feature of the angel fish falls at golden sections of its width and length. The nose, tail section, and centers of the fins of the angel fish fall at first (blue) golden sections. The second golden section (yellow) defines the indents on the dorsal and tail finds as well as the top of the body. The green section defines the marking around the eye and the magenta section defines the eye.
The eyes, beak, wing and key body markings of the penguin all fall at golden sections of its height.
All the key facial features of the tiger fall at golden sections of the lines defining the length and width of its face.
The body sections of an ant are defined by the golden sections of its length. Its leg sections are also golden sections of its length.
