The Virginia Opossum (Didelphis virginiana) is the only marsupial found in North America. A solitary and nocturnal animal about the size of a domestic cat, it is a successful opportunist and is found throughout North America from coast to coast (introduced to California in 1910), and from Central America and Mexico to southern Canada.

The Lonely Cat Sat On the tree thinking whet is that hanging in the air POOR thing was soo mesmerized that it forgot he was sitting on a branch and fell into the box now he sits there alone thinking ....... after a few days he becomes smart and finds a way Out

People are animals they are no better than them. Most of them don't even thing before they do it the consequences that are undermined . The stress and tension i seriously think such people should be punished. I mean killing thier wifes asking for money from their family member threatening to kill them it is utterly barbaric and in humane How can man stoop so low ?
Do you know when their wives used to be pregnant and if their baby came out to be a girl they used to brutally murder their own child .............
Well Its mainly the Male aggression that takes them to this limits....... A person is what he becomes into according to his surrounding and the events in life he/she has encountered .
Every one is born equal its just the world the thinking that divides them. People die of CANCER People die of ACCIDENTS So why be the cause of some one's death when we already know . RAPES KILLINGS SMUGGLING KIDNAPS ETC. Tools to shorten your life also include SMOKING, INTOXICATIONS , DRINKING, DRUGS..........
WE ALL ARE GOING TO DIE SOME DAY THERE IS NO CURE TO THIS CANCER WHAT WE DO IN LIFE WILL BE ACCOUNTED FOR REST IS HISTORY......... Be some one great and stand out from the rest
LIVE AND LET LIVE
Do You ever wonder what It would be like to have a Cat as a friend . Ever feel lonely soo much so that it can come upto you and play with you . You can pet it take it on a long drive .......... S areal
Most of the time it doesn't make sense why do such animals can read emotion .
Wonders are left on the ceiling of your head to think off.....
Don't You wish it existed? Would look really beautiful If it did . The concept is seemingly surprising Just to say that ......
It doesn't Exist!!!!
Well talking About Whales....
Like all mammals, whales breathe air into lungs, are warm-blooded, feed their young milk from mammary glands, and have some (although very little) hair.
The body is fusiform, resembling the streamlined form of a fish. The forelimbs, also called flippers, are paddle-shaped. The end of the tail holds the fluke, or tail fins, which provide propulsion by vertical movement. Although whales generally do not possess hind limbs, some whales (such as sperm whales and baleen whales) sometimes have rudimentary hind limbs; some even with feet and digits. Most species of whale bear a fin on their backs known as a dorsal fin.
Beneath the skin lies a layer of fat, the blubber. It serves as an energy reservoir and also as insulation. Whales have a four-chambered heart. The neck vertebrae are fused in most whales, which provides stability during swimming at the expense of flexibility.
Whales breathe through blowholes, located on the top of the head so the animal can remain submerged. Baleen whales have two; toothed whales have one. The shapes of whales' spouts when exhaling after a dive, when seen from the right angle, differ between species. Whales have a unique respiratory system that lets them stay underwater for long periods of time without taking in oxygen. Some whales, such as the Sperm Whale, can stay underwater for up to two hours holding a single breath. The Blue Whale is the largest known mammal that has ever lived, and the largest living animal, at up to 35 m (105ft) long and 150 tons.
Whales generally live for 40-200 years, depending on their species, but it is rare to find one that lives over a century. Recently a fragment of a lance used by commercial whalers in the 1800s has been found in a huge bowhead whale caught off Alaska. The fragment showed the whale is estimated between 115 and 130 years old. "No other finding has been this precise," said John Bockstoce, an adjunct curator of the New Bedford Whaling Museum.
Their skin has evolved hydrophilic properties. Its surface is covered with microscopic pores surrounded by nanoridges Between these ridges there is a rubber-like gel which is excreted from the gaps between the skin cells. This gel contains enzymes that attack microbes, and the edge of the ridges makes it hard for smaller organisms to get attached.
Whale flukes often can be used as identifying markings, as is the case for humpback whales. This is the method by which the publicized errant Humphrey the whale was identified in three separate sightings.
