Happy #freedomfriday!!! have you heard about that confused narwhal who got adopted by a pod of beluga whales? well, i'm the confused mermaid who got adopted by a pod of dolphins.

it's really awesome to get to know them so well in the wild because i get to see the things they enjoy and their natural behaviors which is something no-one ever gets to see in captivity.

taiji, japan had their first red cove day where they slaughtered a small pod of risso's dolphins. every time someone buys a ticket to a captive dolphin facility, they are helping this happen.

it is truly mermazing to see my pod's intelligence at work every day. please help my wild dolphins stay wild. don't buy a ticket to any captive dolphin facility. let me introduce you to my wild dolphin friends instead!

As charming as an eel ~the grinch

#eels are some pretty crazy critters. this white mouth #moray was out and about the reef maybe looking for a bite to eat. morays are known to cooperatively hunt with other #predators on the reef helping eachother scare small #fish out from the #coral. here in #hawaii we often see them hunting alongside #jacks and peacock #grouper. when moray eels eat, their prey are in for a double whammy as these guys have a second set of #jaws, teeth and all, deep within their throat. this second set reaches up and grabs prey after the eel has clamped it's first set of jaws closed. brutal.

Dorsal fin collapse
.
a killer whale’s dorsal fin can grow several feet long, with an adult male’s fin growing up to six feet – the tallest dorsal fin of all cetaceans. despite its size, the dorsal fin is not supported by bone but a fibrous connective tissue called collagen. wild orcas often travel far, and quickly, in deep water. the water provides pressure to the fin, keeping the tissues inside healthy and encouraging the dorsal fin to remain straight.
.
however, in captivity, the ability to travel is vastly limited. as a result, captive killer whales spend more time at the surface (gravity takes over) and are forced to swim endless circles, often in the same direction, in a relatively small tank. consequentially, the dorsal fin gets less of a workout and less support in the water causing it to partially or completely collapse. other factors thought to cause dorsal fin collapse in captivity are stress, fitness, medication, chemicals used in the water, warmer water temperatures, a reduced ability to thermoregulate due to excessive exposure above water, and a lower water content diet leading to dehydration. 100% of adult male orcas in captivity have the condition, as well as some females (katina, nalani, kayla, shouka, narnia, stella, and kiska), although there is no record of a able-bodied female orca with a collapsed dorsal fin in the wild.
.
in fact, according to h dr. astrid van ginneken, less than one percent of all wild orcas have the condition. however, it varies from population to population. for example, according to dr. ingrid visser’s 1998 study on fin abnormalities, the percentage rate of wild whales with collapsed, collapsing or bent dorsal fins sits at 4.7% in british columbia, 0.57% in norway and 23% in new zealand (although only one male was found to have a fully folded fin). researchers have theorised that dorsal fin collapse in wild whales may be due to emaciation and/or human causes such as entanglement, bullet wounds, boat strikes or exposure to oil spills - factors which are completely different to the causes of the condition in captivity.
