Marine Biology Mystery Solved: Function of "Unicorn" Whale's 8-foot Tooth Discovered
Harvard School of Dental Medicine Researcher Announces Findings Today

This is from a couple of days ago. Kind of neat, actually. Of course, I'm sure that orcas regard narwhals as snacks, but still, they're pretty wacky and interesting.


ETA: I feel I ought to state for the record that despite impugning them, to date, neither of the cats has so much as removed a single (unbreakable plastic) ornament from the Christmas tree, despite several being hung within easy reach. Hmm.

Oh, and I *did* find a metal display-thingie, which enabled me to put my grandmother's antique glass ornaments up, in a place the cats can't reach.


ETA2: Also, if you go and look at my previous entry, the YouSendIt link for some nostaligic holiday music ("The Heat Miser Song") is probably still good.

It is. And it's high-larious. "Creative differences" with the Vienna Boys' Choir indeed-- lerve it.

Don't worry: the cats are just waiting for you to relax before trashing the joint like in the animated _Tarzan_ movie. Doo-wap-she-doo song and all.

it's so cool! (also posted on the narwhal story).....just amazing what they've found out. i'm hoping that the orcas don't regard *all* the narwhals as snacks, because they're very cool too. ;)

glad that nothing has been broken, and the cats have been well behaved.

It's a little kitty conspiracy, sure enough.
