Yoshi the loggerhead turtle was dropped off at a South African aquarium by a Japanese fishing vessel. She had an injury to her shell, and the fishermen hoped the aquarium could help. They treated her and kept her as an exhibit for 20 years. As she neared breeding age, they rehabbed her for release and let her go. After swimming up the west coast of Africa for a bit, she turned around and swam all the way to Australia. There’s speculation she’s returning to her home beach to lay eggs.

Thanks for turning me on to a genre of video that has now become our quarantine relaxant.

We went over to my mom's place for dinner the other day and came back to a bit of a scene. See, we normally keep the cat treats in the fridge, because the cats will chew through the pouches if we don't. But we'd just gotten some new treats, and these came in a plastic tub instead of the foil pouch. So I put the tub up on top of the fridge.

While we were away, Fury, our smaller cat, got up on top of the fridge and knocked the container down, whereupon it burst open, raining treats everywhere. We did learn, though, that apparently the cats do have a limit and will eventually get tired of treats, leaving us to clean up the rest of the mess. Max in particular did not seem to understand our annoyance, apparently feeling it unfair that he was being shoved out of the kitchen simply because treats had rained from the sky.

Parasitic wasps were a real issue with early Christian 'Natural Philosophers' who wanted to use nature as a display of God's benevolence.
