Divers Almost EATEN By Humpback Whales!!

Filed under: FishWhalesAmazing

Whoa!! That is a crazy near miss!!

Four buddies were diving off the California coast, looking for an upclose whale encounter.

They got a little more than they bargained for when two huge humpback whales breached the surface only a few feet from them as they floated in the water.

Thankfully, one of their buddies was filming them as little feeder fish started frenzying as the whales chased down a meal.

The divers didn't realize that the little fish "boiling" to the surface meant that they were trying to escape a predator!!

These guys are seriously lucky, not only because this was a rare encounter, but because if they were ten feet to the right, they'd have been eaten!!

Check out the video (above) to see one incredibly close encounter with two HUGE whales!!

Kelly Rowland

Kelly Rowland was out at sea, off the coast of Provincetown, Massachusetts on Friday.

She and some friends were out whale watching when they were suddenly caught in some dangerous weather!

Her and four buddies were on a day trip, just trying to see some cutie whales, when their boat apparently became "disoriented in the gusty winds and high seas along with the haze which lowered visibility."

Deadly Killer Whale Documentary Blackfish Bought At Sundance

Filed under: Film FlickersWhales

A new documentary called Blackfish had the interest of several buyers at Sundance.

The film is about Tilikum, the killer whale who is responsible for the deaths of three people.

We previously mentioned that a highly skilled trainer was killed at SeaWorld when Tilikum dragged her underwater and wouldn't let her go.

Now, this documentary seeks to expose the cruelty that these creatures suffer at SeaWorld and how their living conditions can drive them to madness!

The doc is apparently so good that both Magnolia Pictures and CNN Films bought the rights to the film together.

Magnolia is going to release it July 19th while CNN is going to air it sometime this fall.

Check out the video (above) to see the trailer for Blackfish!

Filed under: Science!Scary!Disgusting!

Zombie Worm

No, we're not describing some 80s horror B-movie.

A "bone worm" or "zombie worm" is a worm in the genus Osedax that uses bone melting acid to eat the skeletons of water mammals!!

Researchers at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography have been studying how the worms use their bone destroying acid to get at the delicious nutrients inside.

A researcher said:

Isla Fisher

Isla Fisher was recently snapped while visiting Sea World San Diego's Wild Arctic attraction.

She was so lucky to be able to go into the animals' enclosure and meet a real, live whale buddy!

The whale is over a ton and solid white. Super adorbz!!

Not only did she get to get up close to the cutie, she got to pet him and he liked her so much he gave her a kiss!!

We're pretty sure a kiss from a whale means like ten years of good luck or something.

Such a cute pic! You two are adobzable together!

sushi chefs busted for serving whale meat web

EEWWWWW….why can't they leave our food alone!!!

El Lay chefs Kiyoshiro Yamamoto and Susumu Ueda could be headed to jail for a loooooooong time after they were caught serving Sei whale meat to customers.

Sei whales are protected in the States by the Marine Mammal Protection Act, so serving whale meat in the City of Angels is a BIG no-no.
