I came across a very interesting article the other day about the Dolphin's over at SeaWorld. Apparently they have taught themselves how to make bubbles in order to entertain themselves. The trainers made the interesting discovery while giving some VIP guest a tour. They apparently blow air through their blowholes and form bubbles with which they spin, cut, and one female even swims through her bubbles.
I know, I know, it sounds a bit strange and hard to believe, but watch the video here. Interesting no? Wish I had my own Flipper!

That's right folks...A while back I came across an interesting article on NatGeo about a fish with a transparent head! I would have originally thought nothing of it and discarded the information as false, but it was coming from NatGeo. Would they really post something that's false? Nope...the fish was originally discovered alive in the deep waters off California's central coast. It was found by the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI). This being the first of it's kind to be found with it's transparent dome intact. It's head is like a fighter-plane cockpit (see the video below taken in 2004).
If this fish has lived 2,000 feet below the ocean's surface since 1939, imagine what else is down there. How many specimens haven't we found yet? How many different kinds of fish are there that we still don't know of? Just proves that we hardly know anything at all...we know a lot, but there is so much more out there that we have yet to discover. Oh man...
