Brown Fur Seals | Arctocephalus pusillus

“Mother seals and pups find each other using a familiar call. A study in Alaska found that mothers and offspring were still able to recognize each others’ calls even after a separation of four years.”   -

Species Profile: Blue Whale
COSEWIC - Endangered

  • The largest adult on record was 29.5m long! That’s almost 2.5 school-buses long!

  • They are the largest animal that exists today, and possibly the largest animal to ever exist in the history of the world!

  • The blue whale is not actually blue, but is dark and light grey. Each whale has a unique mottling that allows individuals to be recognized by researchers.

  • You can find them “along the north shore of the Gulf of St. Lawrence; off eastern Nova Scotia; off the south coast of the island of Newfoundland and in the Davis Strait; and between Baffin Island and Greenland.” Most will go south for the winter.

With a length of a single inch and a diameter of almost nothing at all, the Lembeh Pygmy Pipedragon is the smallest of a group of fish known as Pygmy Pipehorses.

They’re a cross between pipefish and seahorses. Their bodies are long, not quite as straight as a pipefish but not as brutally bent and broken as a seahorse.

They also have a nifty prehensile tail to grab hold of stuff so they don’t have to swim all the time. That’s good, because they’re pretty crap at swimming.

We get the sweetest little dragons these days!

Ever wondered how Tilikum feels in confinement in relation to his size? The WDC replicated the tank dimensions of the pool he spends the most time in (the underwater viewing area) into human terms so you really can get a perspective on what his life is like.

yup. the dining room i work in is About this size.
