Moby Dick has been making the rounds. “There Are Whales Alive Today Who Were Born Before Moby Dick Was Written“, says a new article in Smithstonian magazine. That’s pretty wild. So is this gorgeous video of a couple of people swimming with a sperm whale.
I also thought of ol’ Moby when I heard about a new video of a giant squid in its own habitat. Because giant squids live in such deep water, it has been extremely difficult to take living pictures of them, and this video is the closest view we have ever had. A giant squid, of course, was Moby Dick’s preferred meal (they tasted much better than peg-legged humans).
