A couple of divers swimming off California’s coast almost had a Jonah-esque encounter last week. Luckily for the internet, there is video!
Shawn Stamback and Francis Antigua of San Luis Obispo were snorkeling at Souza Rock near Morro Bay when a pair of krill-hungry, 40-ton Humpback whales surfaced mere feet away while a friend filmed from the boat. Thems guys almost got eated!
Sounds like good clean, fun for everyone, right? But before you gather the kids around the screen be forewarned that the divers ruined what would have been a wholesome, family-friendly online moment by using — can you believe this? — bad words (hence the NSFW above). Shame, really. We can’t have nice things.
Well, mute your machine or cut off your kids’ ears or something and watch below.

Recently, a few fortunate visitors to Eureka’s Sequoia Park Zoo have seen one of its newest additions —a baby red panda born June 16th. Mother, Stella Luna, brought the little one out of the den (See photo below by Patty Andriese.) According to the zoo’s Facebook site, “Red panda mothers typically move their cubs to new dens frequently during the first three months after birth.”
However, not everyone will be lucky enough to see the cub in the exhibit. It will be a couple of weeks before the youngest member of the local panda family starts making forays outside by herself. Of course, as the LoCO pointed out earlier, the cub can be seen via video camera at the zoo already but nothing brings out the ahhh factor like seeing a baby for yourself.
Lucky zoo veterinarian, Dr. Kevin Silver (see photo above by Amanda Auston) got a chance to examine the little one and says that she looks healthy so, in the next few weeks, more visitors will get a chance to see the cub themselves.

The Sequoia Park Zoo has new baby Screamers so take advantage of the summer holidays and bring the kids to see these little fluff balls before they (the Screamer chicks and your kids) are all grown up.

The Sequoia Park Zoo says…
Three Patagonian cavy kits were born at the Zoo on September 8 and are now exploring their new home with mom, Tot, and dad, Dylan. If you don’t see them frolicking around the yard, try and spot them nestled under a shrub or tree stump where they tuck themselves safely away until their parents join them.
This is Tot’s second litter this year. Her first two kits, both males, were born in January and are now part of a breeding group at the Charles Paddock Zoo in Atascadero, CA. View more photos soon on the Zoo’s Facebook page.
