3. I like that. It's almost like the normal creatures on the planet

at least trying to work together. And then there is Trump.

6. If she doesn't try to turn it on and lets it dry out for a week or so

in a bowl of uncooked rice, it might be OK, depending on how long it was in the water and whether the whale tried to use it.

7. Heehee! The whale might have ran up roaming charges trying to reach his cousin in the Indian Ocean.

9. Considering that Hammerfest is above the Arctic Circle,

those charges could have been considerable.

15. If it's a model from the last few years, it would be fine.

They are now designed to be able to withstand short-term exposure to water.

The Beluga is saying get this crap out of my ocean...

Do beluga's have sufficiently individual personalities for some to be assholes and some to be sweethearts?

18. Good point!

Imho, personality differentiation happens in all higher IQ species.

Of course we know, the more intelligent ones are nicer, more compassionate, caring....if human, they'd be Dems.

19. F'n Amazing!!

💕 All cetaceans. They are truly amazing.

"Experts in philosophy, conservation and animal behaviour believe dolphins and whales are sufficiently intelligent to justify the same ethical considerations as humans.

Recognising their rights would mean an end to whaling and their captivity, or their use in entertainment."

Long live The Sea Shepherd Conservation Society!!

Thanks for this thread, my friend.
