What keeps the animal world from becoming overpopulated? Why don't particularly aggressive animals totally dominate worldwide? There is significant evidence from the study of animal populations that when the optimum number of animals in a given area is reached, the population stabilizes. This is not caused by a struggle-for-existence conflict, but by built-in physiological or psychological mechanisms which somehow slow down the reproductive activity.

The check-and-balance systems built into animal populations are so intricate that they can only point to a Designer. The Bible says that in the beginning God built a perfect and balanced system and saw that it was very good (Genesis 1:31). When sin entered, it brought with it cruelty, selfishness, and violence. What is truly amazing is that God maintains such a balance in spite of Satan's attempt to destroy His plan. One truly begins to better comprehend the character of God by studying the earth and observing the intricate design and delicate balance of nature.
