It’s been twelve days since my last post. I’m getting more and more comfortable living here in Maryland, especially with my roommates, who are becoming more like family everyday. Here to demonstrate, are a kitteh, a doggeh, and a monkeh, who are just about the best of friends. What Tchaikovsky’s Waltz of the Flowers has to do with them… I’m not sure, I just know that I like it. ^_^
Happy Monkday :_)
Things don’t get much cuter than a baby otter swimming. The Dallas Zoo’s small-clawed otter pup, Tasanee, has been getting some swimming lessons from her mom, Daphne.
“Even a baby otter has to learn to swim. Our Asian small-clawed otter pup, Tasanee, plays with toys and a hose in a large tub in her indoor habitat, chirping all the while. Her mom, Daphne, teaches her to be sure the little one can navigate the deeper pool in the outdoor habitat.”
And with that, we present Tasanee …
Happy Ottersday :#)
OMG this kangaroo joey just loves gittin’ scritchin’s! It’s so unbelievably cute. At one point he puts his widdle paw up, as if to say,”No, I can’t take any more scritchins! … Okay, maybe just a few more.”
Humpback whales are taking Manhattan! There have been twice as many sightings of humpbacks off of Rockaway Beach in Queens than there were two years ago. That’s amazing! Also amazing: these shots that New York photographers are capturing of whales against the New York skyline are absolutely jaw-dropping.
Scientists attribute the return of the whales to cleaner water, and increased populations of Menhaden- a popular prey fish. I find it interesting that fish named the “menhaden” lives around the island of “Manhattan”. Could there be a connection?
Happy Humpday (^_^)
