Accents change from country to country, state to state and even city to city. But do our animals follow suit?

There was a time in the United States when all the phones had rotary dial, most of the televisions were only black and white, and the most popular animal around was a dolphin named Flipper. This dolphin was the star of his own television series from September 1964 until April 1967. Some referred to him as Lassie (the dog from TV and movies) with fins.

Some heroes walk on two legs, others on four. Then there are those that don't walk at all. Meet four dolphins that left a feeding session to come to the aid of a drowning girl. While some may say the dolphins were just curious, how did they know where she was and why did they form a protective circle around her? Read on for more about these amazing creatures.

The goal is 12,000 species. The ’Photo Ark’ navigator and animal photographer is Joel Sartore. The mission is to document every captive animal species in the world using studio lighting and black-and-white backgrounds. So far, he’s traveled to 40 countries and has accomplished more than half of his target.

Over the years, I’ve blogged a lot about the animal abuses and outright cruelty incurred by sea animals at SeaWorld. Most recently, I penned a testimonial piece in memoriam for the passing of the killer whale, Tilikum. This case caused global protests by animal activists worldwide when it became a center piece for CNN’s award-winning documentary, Blackfish, that shined a glaring light on the maltreatment of Orca whales in captivity.

Don’t believe everything you see on line. A website, People of Lancaster, published an article on October 7 that showed pictures of dolphins being blown around by the winds of Hurricane Matthew in Florida. They are great shots credited to a Weather Channel photographer who was blown away by what he had been able to capture with his trust camera. The problem is that it is a fake. Heck, they aren’t even photos from this hurricane. The two photos aren’t even from the same hurricane. Note: no dolphins were harmed in the creation of these photos.
