A group of five captive dolphins in France have been recorded making whale-like noises while they are sleeping, even though they have only heard whale sounds as recordings during their daytime dolphin shows.
They sleep-talk! I really think it is terrible that we keep them in captivity. About 23,000 dolphins, porpoises and other small whales are killed in Japan every year, making it the largest scale slaughter of cetaceans in the world. Come on, people. Seriously?
That gigantic Japanese earthquake’s subsequent tsunami broke off massive icebergs in Antarctica. Scientists call it calving, when giant baby icebergs break off from the mainland ice cap. Isn’t that cute?
This Japanese photographer, Natsumi Hayashi, levitates. Ok, not really, but there have been many pseudoscientists who have claimed to do so. Ridiculous! Almost as ridiculous as the idea of a soul, magical crystals, alien visitations, ghosts, astrology or divination. Anyways, surprise, her photography is actually the result of hard work.
Moon jellyfish have increased, thanks to climate change and overfishing, and appear as white swaths in this Japanese bay. better get used to the taste of jellies after our protein-rich fish supply runs out!
