  1. The Whale has always been an interesting animal to me. Mainly Blue Whales , Beluga Whales , and Sperm Whales. Such majestic , titanic creatures. Blue Whales in particular get up to 100 feet.............Gosh , I can't even imagine a creature that big! If there was such a thing as reincarnation , I'd like to come back as a whale or a maybe a tiger too.

    Tigers always struck me as awesome too. If the Lion is the king of the jungle then the tiger is it's Hitman.

    Oddly enough, the whale's ancient ancestors lived on land.


    I, too, am fascinated by whales. Having never seen one in person, I find it difficult to comprehend just how large they are. Just the fact that these mammoths are living in the depths of our oceans is enough to blow my mind, though.

    I've also always loved birds. I've sat for hours at a time watching them soar above the clouds. There's just this magical quality about them.

    For anyone else who loves birds, this link has been circling around my community. Double click "Live Video 2" (the first one doesn't always work).

    Nice pics Page. Being a fan of whales myself, as well as cryptozoology. I would have to include the giant squid. I was waching a special on the elusive creatures, and was surprised to find that the whales, sperm in particular are a natural enemy of the squid which as you know stay at very deep depths in the ocean. Once can only imagine the struggles between these two creatures since no video exists of them together. I have heard stories of how a whale will wash up dead with suckers all over it's body, and others with half eaten squid carcasses in there's.
     

  9. Yeah, That's gotta be an epic fight. The ocean is full of interesting animals,who knows what's really at the bottom?

    Right you are Kibuddy, and you know what the crazy thing would be is that as big as they are, the silence of the ocean bottom without hearing a thing. That would be crazy!!!!

    Whoa, I didn't know what the name of those things was.

    I'm also somewhat impressed by sloths. I mean, to be THAT slow and not be extinct is a rather impressive acheivement.
     
  17. Seriously, this wins. :D

    For anyone who doesn't know, it's called a Platypus.

    platypus.

    Koalas too. They look like the Yoda of the jungle.

    koala.

    I also want to see a whale. It's hard to imagine an animal that is bigger than a boat.
     
  18. that looks like a pokemon
     


  19. I was thinking the same thing.
     
  20. Koala Bears man....
