Sometimes You Just Have to Jump for Joy Because You're a Killer Whale

funny orca image Sometimes You Just Have to Jump for Joy Because You're a Killer Whale
- -

This baby orca is one of four babies born to a Southern Resident orca pod after nearly a three year stretch of unsuccessful births. This happy calf was spotted jumping and playing with her family members in the Salish Sea. She's obviously happy to be alive and according to an interview with Global News some folks with the Pacific Whale Watch Association (PWWA) are excited about it too.

Michael Harris, executive director of PWWA told Global News that this calf, named J50, seemed particularly overjoyed. Due to teeth marks seen on J50's back, researchers believe that other whales may have helped her along during her birth. Harris speculated on the reason the little whale kept jumping, saying that, "Maybe the other members of her family realize how precious she is, and how close she came to never making it into this world."

This image is one of many pictures of J50 breaching and playing with her family.

Hitchhiker of the Day: Cats Ride Black Rhinos in South Africa

South Africa catches cats riding rhinosaurus
- -

In South Africa, cats are just hopping on rhinos for the ride.

Check out this, probably very rude, kitty letting the rare black rhinoceros do all the work:

OK, OK, it's not exactly a cat. Rather, it's an animal called a genet. Genets are merely cat-like animals that are actually more closely related to mongooses.

But they look a lot like cats!

National Geographic gives an expert opinion of just what in the hell that cat genet is doing up there:

Craig Sholley, wildlife biologist and vice president of the African Wildlife Foundation, says genets likely jump on big herbivores to search for food.

For one, the genet eats insects that the rhino stirs up from the grass, the same technique cattle egrets use on grazing mammals. Sholley says it's also possible the nocturnal genet was searching for ticks that latch onto rhinos and buffaloes.

The rhino also offers the nocturnal, tree-dwelling animal a vantage point from which to scan for their prey, which includes anything from a dung beetle to a baby antelope.

Perching on a large, slow-moving animal could be a great hunting technique—until that animal-turned-lookout gets fed up.

Yeah, either that, or genets just have places to be and Uber hasn't rolled out to South Africa yet.
