        • Does anyone have nice pics of other sea animals?
          Like the ones we call mors in Polish... You know, the sabretooth-like ones, funny ones...

            • It looks similar to a seal, but it has big teeth (2) sticking out), and it has... moustache, or something...

                • Sealions probably... unlikely, those are very dangerous to approach... at least the males. I may have a picture of the females though.

                  • Yeah, sounds like what we in Norway call "hvalross".

                          • After reading some of the articles about the "sniffer dolphin" program, one gets the impression that they get a "charge" from teaming with humans. And please note, there are no leashes restraining them and the picture shows miles of open sea behind the dolphin. They are probably smarter than we are, and if they stay around, it is probably their choice.

                            And that device is a camera which the dolphin uses to show anomolous things it finds, usually on or around the hulls of ships that it is inspecting.

                              • Well... we had a theory at the time that Oileen (that dolphin I showed earlier) was the xenobiologist version of a dolphin...
