Critter Mania!

I just came across a truly awesome site: ARKive.org. ARKive is according to their FAQ,
"the Noah's Ark for the Internet era - a unique global initiative, gathering together into one centralised digital library, films, photographs and audio recordings of the world’s species."
What this boils down to is, lots of excellent photos and videos of endangered animals, like the one below!

This page has an embedded Quicktime movie <a href="http://media.arkive.org/6D29B7A7-957F-49BC-BECE-058D4E267FCA/Presentation.Streams/Presentation_QT_25fps.mov">available here</a>

Being an animal freak, I look forward to seeing lots more. Check it out.

They're so cute!

I've been to a beach where this happens. It was in Turkey. Naturally, tourists aren't allowed anywhere near the place when the turtles are mating or hatching. We did see quite a fw swim past us on our way there, though.
