The Serengeti of the Sea
Among the many animals out in the bay at this time of year it is exciting to hear that Blue Whales have made an appearance. In the past month there have been reports of sightings of large groups of Blue Whales numbering as many as twenty. Blue Whales are the largest animal that has ever lived on Earth...larger than any dinosaur. Last summer PBS and BBC combined to put on a program called Big Blue Live. They wanted to show the amazing variety of animals in the Monterey Bay at any given time. In the three weeks that they were with us only one Blue Whale made an appearance. I'm still waiting to see my first.
I like that the Monterey Bay is considered the Serengeti of the ocean.
In bocca al lupo. m
