Is It A Bird, A Plane?

No, it’s a flying mobula ray soaring high off the Mexican shore.   

Soaring high above the waves as easily as a bird, mobula rays appear perfectly designed for this astonishing aerobatic display.

Closely related to sharks but with long, flat bodies and wing-like pectoral fins, they are ideally suited to swooping through the water yet seem equally at home in the air, so much so that they have earned the name “flying rays”.

Mobula rays can reach heights of more than two metres (6ft 6ins), remaining airborne for several seconds, but their landings are much less graceful, creating a loud bang as they belly-flop back into the sea. MORE ON MOBULA RAYS

Gathering of Giants

A friendly family of sperm whales, comprising several adult females and three juveniles. The prominent white stripes on the ventral surface of the adult in the forefront made it relatively easy to distinguish this family unit from the many dozens of others gathered in the area for socialization. Note the pectoral fin of the adult in the forefront. The bone structure, resembling the bones in a human hand, is clearly visible.

Witness to a phenomenon few have ever seen before, I slipped beneath the ocean’s surface to find myself submerged alongside hundreds, maybe thousands, of sperm whales — one of the largest and most magnificent cetaceans of the sea — engaged in a dramatic frenzy of physical contact and biosonar communication.

I could scarcely believe my eyes..

Unusual Spotted Drums

Juvenile Spotted Drum

The adults display both bold spots and thick strips, while the juvenile Spotted Drum has long, elegant dorsal fins.

The name ” Drum” was given to these, and several other similar species, because drum fish can make a low resonance noise similar to the beating of the drum. They make repetitive throbbing or drumming sounds by beating their abdominal muscle against the swim bladder.

Did you know that their dorsal fin becomes shorter with age?
