Spotted off the coast of San Diego, this pod of dolphins was one of the largest ever seen by human eyes. It was estimated at around seven miles long and five miles wide. That’s a fuckload of dolphins.
Biologists have observed that in certain populations of frogs the males outnumber the females. This leads to gang-rape on a massive scale and the poor female normally gets crushed to death in the process. All is not lost, however, as evolution has managed to teach the males how to extract the dead female’s eggs after her expiration, enabling that sweet genetic material to continue the miracle we call ‘life’.
Well, not actual giant spiders, but large spider decoys to deter potential predators and scare the shit out of prey.
