Some pictures from my honeymoon (I wish)
“It is not the sea cow of Aristotle, for it never comes upon dry land to feed, but it can use its fore limbs for a number of tasks: swimming, walking on the shallows of the shore, supporting himself on the rocks, digging for algae and seagrasses, fighting, and embracing each other.
It is covered with a thick hide, more like unto the bark of an ancient oak than unto the skin of an animal; the manatee’s hide is black, mangy, wrinkled, rough, hard, and tough; it is void of hairs, and almost impervious to an ax or to the point of a hook.”
– Georg Wilhelm Steller, who also discovered the Gumboot chiton.
(NOVEMBER) Two Newfoundland fisherman stumbled upon a Greenland shark in the midst of being defeated by a Greenland moose. In a new twist on the classic ‘bear vs. shark’ debate, the beachcombers discovered a shark choking on moose hide. The Greenland shark, which is known for capsizing kayaks, most likely struck up a conversation with the seemingly docile moose, earlier that afternoon. This interaction soon turned hostile, as the shark attempted to ingest the moose, to which it was highly unsuccessful.
Both fisherman had to remove the mammals hide from the shark’s jaws, before it swam away into an ocean of mortification and unrequited dreams.
