Happy Star Wars day

I’m like an hour late for this but I’m gonna post it anyway

“My companion and I were alone with the stars; the misty river of the Milky Way flowing across the sky, the patterns of the constellations standing out bright and clear, a blazing planet low on the horizon…”

Elusive Whales Set New Record for Depth and Length of Dives Among Mammals

A new study of elusive Cuvier’s beaked whales shows they can dive to nearly 10,000 ft (3,000 m).

by Jane J. Lee

A new long-term study looking at the elusive Cuvier’s beaked whale reveals the deepest and longest dives ever seen among mammals.

The new records indicate behavior that is much more varied and extreme than scientists expected for this species, says Simone Baumann-Pickering, a marine mammal biologist at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography in La Jolla, California. One exceptional whale dove to 9,816 feet (2,992 meters), while a second stayed down for 138 minutes.

Scientists and the U.S. Navy are especially interested in these whales because sonar activity has stranded individuals on beaches in the Mediterranean Sea, the Canary Islands, and the Bahamas, says Greg Schorr, a research biologist with the Cascadia Research Collective in Olympia, Washington…

This baby elephant landed itself in a right old mess after falling down a railway embankment.

Stuck fast in the muddy ravine, its attempts to get free failed time and again. Luckily, a train was passing by and passengers, upset to see the forlorn animal in a pickle, convinced the driver to stop so they could free it.

While one commuter enticed the elephant to the top of the ditch by holding out tree branches for it to eat, others joined the rescue and eventually pulled the animal out of its predicament.

The calf suffered no injuries in the fall and probably learned not to stray too far from the herd in future following its muddy misadventure.

Officials say the elephant had been walking across rail tracks in Goalpara, in the state of Assam, north-east India, when it fell into the ditch.
