It's a Whale of a Tale

Gather around children and let me tell you a tale of the Great Blue Whale that was seen right off the coast of MONTEREY. This is a rare sighting - it is unusual for these shy cetaceans to stay on the surface so long - plus they tend to hang out in deeper water. But this year is a special year all along the Pacific coastline, thanks to El Niño. Warmer water has meant an explosion in krill and anchovies and this is exactly what marine life like whales, dolphins, and seals eat. Lately the news has been filled with video of Orcas stalking and dining on seals, dolphins and baby whales. There has been video of dolphin pods racing through Monterey and Half Moon Bays. And last week there were a couple of PODS of humpback whales INSIDE the San Francisco Bay. . . on MY SIDE of the Golden Gate Bridge. This is rare rare RARE as Humpbacks are normally much further out to sea.
But I think NOTHING compares to the sight of a BLUE WHALE. It looks like there are two whales feeding BUT look again - it is ALL ONE whale.
Enjoy this video of the spectacular Blue Whale.
Happy Weekend everypuggy!

Thanks you and Noodle and Mochi's Mom for sharing this incredible video.
