If you’re a whale, it’s really not that bad to have your skin infested by thousands and thousands of tiny arthropods that are continuously eating away your dead flesh from the inside. In fact, it’s actually quite a boon!
Find out why in this disgusting episode of Humboldt Baywatch, that regular KHUM-FM feature in which DJ Midge talks with some knowledgeable person about a particular example of local wildlife. This week it’s Michelle Kunst, executive director of the Trinidad Coastal Land Trust!
Michelle is the knowledgeable person, I mean. Not the example of local wildlife. Though I suppose she is that, too.
