MUCH BIGGER things...
oh, how we wish we could take a trip to see them!
Did you know that South Africa is one of the best places in the world to 'Whale watch'?
Yes, we have tourists from all over the globe who come here between May and December for a glimpse of these magnificent creatures. This is something which Mom says is still on her 'to do' list. I personally think they are too big for me to play with.
When a whale's tail is out of the water, it is called 'fluking' or 'lobtailing'. Fluking is when they are about to dive deeply whereas 'lobtailing' is when the whale 'pats' the water to make a loud sound. Here too, it is thought to be a form of communication.
THE BIG SPLASH!
We just thought you guys might like to see these beautiful pictures of some of our fellow warm blooded creatures. Please visit the sites below if you are interested in more interesting facts:
In the meantime, have a wonderful, barkful weekend!
Remember that the world is a much bigger place than we generally think with creatures that we often forget about!
Lots of licks
