Taima - Killer Whale - Died 06/06/2010 (by DixieDolphin)
I do not know of any captive killer whale that has ever had skin cancer.
Also, it’s not nice to name call!
Look at Current! Let the sprouting begin :B I love seeing new photos of this little family.
Disclaimer that I am by no means a “whale expert” and I never claim to be. Most everything on here is opinion, and not fact, and thus my logic is susceptible to being extremely flawed.
I’m just here to learn what I can from everyone, from trainers to researchers, whale watchers to park guests. I appreciate all of these people because they all have at least some scrap of knowledge to offer me, and I’m here to take it.
NO, NOT THE MANATEES NO NO NO NO NO NO. STOP AND THINK ABOUT WHAT YOURE SAYING DUDE.
This is getting ridiculous. Sea World does not keep rescued manatees unless the animal would not be able to survive in it’s natural habitat. Manatees are taken into captivity for rehabilitation proposes. They are also ENDANGERED. Letting any manatee “die with dignity in the wild” if it can be saved and released is NOT an option for this species. This is the kind of attitude that the movie Blackfish is creating and nurturing. This is pure idiocy. This is buying into hype and sensationalized media and not thinking. This is NOT helping animals.
People who say stuff like this are completely missing the point of the movie
All of the above.
I always get the worst news about the whales in my French class, and the best news (like Kameas birth) in my human geography class
OkAy. Stopping here for today.
i am in love with this omfg
I am so done my drawings don’t compare
This is absolutely stunning! :D I love how it’s softer, as in, the pencil looks like it’s been used very softly (I often have an issue with a heavier hand…) and the water work is just amazing!!
I’m very happy for the mothers who get to experience something as natural as raising a calf, and I love them all so much regardless of the circumstances of their birth, but I KNOW the entire population would benefit from breeding whales at an older age, with longer intervals…
