Animals

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

"A sperm whale estimated at 35 to 40 feet long that wandered into Mobile Bay this past week is struggling to survive.

Team members from Dauphin Island Sea Lab’s Marine Mammal Research Program are on the scene with the whale near Montrose on the east side of Mobile Bay, where the average water depth is only about 10 feet."

Hope the whale makes it. Does anyone remember when they blew up a dead whale that washed up in Oregon or Washington state back in the 80's? It made a huge grotesque mess. I wouldn't be surprised if Peter Navarro was behind it.

Way


Not so different than teaching them to go get a beer out of the frig or the 250 commands than some learn.

But I do doubt that the dog taught himself. His owner did a great job.

I saw a story on Good Morning America about some safari folks in a safari folks vehicle were chased by a giraffe that seemed to be totally pissed off. The whole thing must have come to a bad end since they didn't show the final outcome of the event. I bet a giraffe could eat two or three people after savagely whipping them with its massive neck. A giraffe will kick your ass and eat you without any sort of warning or restraint. Don't be fooled.

Good point, but that means the humans have been throwing other trash in the aluminum bin. Baaaad humans.

Did you open the tweet and scroll down to the fish jumping?

The swimming monkeys are the best, but several others are cool.
