Maybe Fark should expand its Caturday tag to include all cool stories about animals.

FTA: "Sometimes some individuals can be picked on," Wilson says. "It might be that this individual didn't fit in, so to speak, with its original group."

Good thing he found some friends. Otherwise he may have turned into a freak with a mental disorder, one day snap, and go on a murderous rampage, killing a school of fish.

A pod of sperm wales? I bet there's a Brazillian of them, waxing and waning.

Cetacean Sunday?

How much do you want to bet the Dolphin is pretty much their pet. Probably tells a few jokes. They change the paper under it once a week. It's cute, but watch your finger. Oh cute, it swears!

I used to live in the Azores so I'm getting a kick out this...

Good find, Subby.

No guns, religion or politics. Very refreshing.

'Walker, Texas Dolphin' would not work as a TV show.

No, it's just twisted a bit at the hips. See that bump there? That dolphin is trying to evolve legs!
