Two-headed alligator spotted in Tampa, Florida along the Hillsborough River in the Seminole Heights neighborhood. According to Florida Fish and Wildlife, this alligator has been reported by several people. They explained that failed separation of monozygotic twins is common in reptiles and amphibians but they rarely reach this juvenile state.

The West Coast Community all have a distinct angled eyepatch - different from all other catalogued orca so far as they are sloped posteriorly.

This is Part 1 of the seaquarium show. I could only upload 5 mins at a time (sigh) but at around 4:23 you can see the baby pacific white sided struggle to get off the slide out. Also the tank is horribly small as well as the music being very loud.

From my understanding this show hasn’t changed at all in recent times even though seaworld found water works with orcas inherently dangerous after several incidents.

Will be uploading pictures and more in the week to come as well as the appalling “flipper” show. Sorry for quality have had a lot of issues trying to find ways to upload this.

IM GOING WHALE WATCHING TOMORROW ;-;

Ahhh have fun and tell me about it!!!

52orcas:

27. Keet
The second generation of captive born orcas began with Keet. The first ever male born at SeaWorld, he is the “Grandbaby Shamu.” When he was just 1 year old, Keet’s mother, Kalina, was taken from him and moved to a different SeaWorld park. At the time, Keet and Kalina had a tight bond, and after his mother was taken from him he formed a close relationship with another adult female Katerina. Sadly, after she died, Keet was badly abused by the other whales. He was frequently found immobile and shivering. SeaWorld decided it was time to move Keet to a different park. Over the next few years of his life, Keet was moved numerous times between SeaWorld parks. Keet has sired two daughters, Kalia and Hayda. He was very close to Hayda and nurtured her until she died at the young age of 3. His trainers consider Keet to be a gentle giant.

Does anyone know if SeaWorld, on social media or whatever, encourages its followers to get into political matters? As in, do they try to get guests to sign certain petitions or support a proposed law for protecting the ocean?

I don’t think so… Even…

Wouldn’t it be amazing if people with a lot of influence used it for good?! *sigh*

My 3 month old kitten is nowhere to be found. My grandma left the door open and I can’t found her. I got her yesterday, I was so happy, we bonded so well, she even slept with me and would come when I called her. I’m heart broken, I dont know what to do. 

Aw - I hope she’ll come back if she ran away or that you’ll find her. Losing a kitten is the worst feeling I know.

earth-song:

The photo shows a huge whale that died after ingesting more than 20 pounds of different types of plastic. The autopsy also showed that the material was from the Netherlands, where the bags are used by workers who sell tomatoes in the European market. 
Despite its 50 tonnes and 14 meters long, a few pounds of plastic, a synthetic material produced by man, was enough to kill the mammal.
