Wow! The incredibly elusive giant squid has finally been caught on film, 2,000 feet under the surface in the Pacific Ocean. The world will have to wait for the reveal – it won’t be shown until the season finale of Discovery Networks Curiosity show.
I’ve got my DVR ready to go!
It is amazing to see just how human dolphins are. This video captures a mother dolphin who reportedly carried her dead calf for three days at sea, using her dorsal fin. It is an emotional sight – a display of love and affection that one simply cannot duplicate anywhere else in the animal kingdom, save humans and chimpanzees/gorillas. For an animal so distantly related to apes and humans, it is fascinating to observe the mental capacity and sheer intelligence of the species as a whole. They are sentient beings.
The ocean (and world at large) is a fascinating place. Let’s remember that, and do our part to work towards a brighter future for all life on this planet, which includes respecting the natural habitats of the dolphins – the calf may have sustained a fatal injury from a boat propeller.
