Hey guys I stroll the Youtubes and Internets pretty often and I decided to put up some fun facts/videos I find that I want to share with you guys. Here’s my two for the day and the topic is the animal kingdom.
1 – Okapi -The African Unicorn…
Okay get this, The lower body of a Zebra. The upper body of a Deer BUT is actually a species of Giraffe… God exists and is a troll with a quirky sense of humor. Imagine his face when he was at the drawing board working on this… Maybe he just had spare parts left on the desktop, may be it was bet between him and Gabriel I doan know 😛
2. Mocha Dick was a notorious male sperm whale Mocha that lived in the Pacific Ocean in the early 19th century, usually encountered in the waters near the island off southern Chile. American explorer and author Jeremiah N. Reynolds published his account, “Mocha Dick: Or The White Whale of the Pacific: A Leaf from a Manuscript Journal” in 1839 in The Knickerbocker. Mocha Dick was an albino, and was the inspiration for Herman Melville’s 1851 novel Moby Dick.
That’s the boring part. Get this! This aquatic badass survived encounters with at least one hundred whalers. Took on three whaling ships, AT ONCE and survived .
Final point, In an almost cliche twist Mocha met his end in 1838. He appeared to come to the aid of a distraught cow whose calf had just been slain by whalers. His body was seventy feet long and yielded one hundred barrels of oil. Make no mistake, Mocha made his hunters earn every barrel.\ and I’m sure he took some of his predators to the deep.
These were just two fun facts I came across. I don’t know when I’ll do some more of this again but be sure if something catches my fancy. I’ll be sure to drop these fun facts. If it does anything, you’ll have interesting conversation topics at your next lime. May be I’ll get you laid. Who knows?
