    Odd Buddies?

    I usually only dive at night in Laguna for Lobster. I dive with my brother and my friend but we kinda just enter the water together then leave the water when we suck our tanks dry.

It does seem ab it exeagerated and dated, but it took alot of orca deaths to advance the husbandry procedures so that they can live longer now. m really curious to how the whale sharks will live, them being plankton consumers.

    Another Great White at Monterey

    I cant call myself an expert on orcas but my professor is and thats where I heard it first. He said that they will never tell you that the orcas lifespan is reduced considerably by living in captivity. Why do you think that they keep on replenishing the "Shamus". People still think that its...

I have...
