Sea lions are basically just dogs of the ocean 😍

They are the staffies of the ocean, all our sbts have looked like seals. They act like a dog when they meet divers. How adorable Sea Lion are. There are actually seven species of Sea Lions in the world, but people tend to lump them all into one category. They all belong to a group of animals known as pinnipeds. Sea Lions are very interesting animals that can end up being extremely large. The males are much bigger than the females which helps them to gain the ability to mate with them because the females will look for the largest males out there to be with. Sea Lions are found in bodies of water all over the world, but not in the Northern Atlantic Ocean. Many researchers find this to be a very interesting fact. Yet they can’t pinpoint reasons why this is the case. The temperatures are compatible with where some Sea Lions live. There is also plenty of the food that they consume found there. Some species of Sea Lions live in the sub arctic areas while others live in warmer climates including California. They have long torpedo shaped bodies that are well designed for movements both in the water and on land. All species of Sea Lions are considered to be mammals. This is because they give live birth to their young and the females also nurse the pups with milk they produce in their bodies. Sea Lions really only have two predators that are other animals – Killer Whales and Sharks. The threat that they pose depend on the areas where the Sea Lions live. When they have to go further out into the waters to find food then they are more likely to encounter such predators. Man has proven to be the biggest threat to the Sea Lion survival though for a very long time. We really only know the basics about Sea Lions including their anatomy and their mating habits. We do know that they are very social animals and that they have a variety of methods of communicating. Yet we really don’t know much about what those different types of sounds are used for.

Winter Getaway In Lapland35s

Winter Getaway In Lapland

Finnish Lapland is an incredibly beautiful place where nature has been kept unspoiled thanks to the rough conditions. Only brave travelers make it up above the Arctic Circle Winter is actually the best time of year you could come to Lapland. Most of the traditional Lappish activities involve snow, so you’ll need to come from December till early April to experience the real thing. Would anybody in their right mind travel to Finland, and Lapland, in December, January, February? You bet! And you, too, absolutely should. Visiting Lapland is one of the best things to do in Finland in winter. Apart from drinking with Finns. Lapland encompasses the top part of Finland and actually stretches to Sweden and Norway too. It’s sparsely populated thanks to the tough living conditions and the Second World War. Today, Lapland in Finland is home to about 3.4 % of Finnish population. It’s also a home to the Sami people, who present the only indigenous population of the EU. One of the best thing that you should try when you come to Lapland is try Husky Safari. This safari was my fave! It involves riding through beautiful landscapes, trying to slow the dogs down a bit, as they have an insatiable desire to run at the speed of light. The silent ride, interrupted only by the dogs’ barks and excited shrieks, makes for a great adventure. Your dogs will pull the sled happily and will occasionally turn around to check who’s at the helm :) Husky riding is one of the most popular activities in Lapland. Driving a snowmobile will get your adrenaline levels up! Let your engine roar and carry you over snowy hilltops and frozen lakes. You’ll need a driver’s license, though. All snowmobile providers wrap you up in a warm overall and do a break with hot beverages in the middle so you won’t get too cold. See? This is how even Lapland winter can get warm and cozy. Did you know Santa Claus’ official base is in Rovaniemi, a little town on the Arctic Circle? You definitely should stop by if you’re on your way further up North. Santa’s main post office looks really special and you can even check out how many letters came in from any country in the world. There are elves instead of shop assistants and you can meet Santa (for €30), he’s available every day! Don’t forget to cross the Arctic Circle a few times, just for the fun of it. Obviously, for the most Christmas cheer, you need to come to Lapland in December. Already at the end of November, Santa officially declares the Christmas season open. In 2017, the season’s opening is scheduled for Saturday Nov 18 at 4pm. The Christmas festivities last for a month and on December 23 Santa hops on a reindeer-pulled sleigh and begins the mission to distribute gifts to all the kids in the world Thank you for watching my video

How Epic of Bucks Walking In Blue Water23s

How Epic of Bucks Walking In Blue Water

It was a cold October morning and shortly after 8 o’clock when my mind began to drift. I had been sitting motionless for several hours and hadn’t even seen a bird or a squirrel. The boredom of monotony grabbed me, and I checked my cell phone for messages. Since I had my phone out, I decided to play Texas Hold’Em. I knew it didn’t really matter anyway, I wasn’t going to see a deer this late in the morning. I was hunting a trail leading back to a bedding area, and if I was going to see the buck I was hunting, surely it would have been right at daylight. Two years earlier, I was hunting the same trail 250 yards away and had a large buck walk under my climbing stand. The problem was he came under my stand 30 minutes before daylight. So for the time being, it was Texas Hold’Em. It wasn’t long before movement caught my eye, and I glanced down to my left. A deer was coming my way and when it stepped out from behind a bush, my jaw literally dropped. It was a big 10-pointer, and he was only 12 yards away. My heart raced and as soon as the buck’s head went behind a tree, I put down my cell phone. The buck wasn’t wasting any time and moved quickly down the trail toward me. He finally stopped 6 yards from the tree I had climbed. The buck was on my immediate left and since I am left-handed, he was in the worst possible position for a shot. As the buck took a step directly toward me, he smelled the Bow Hunter’s Fatal Obsession deer scent I had put out around my stand. He stopped, smelled it and raised his head and looked behind him. In one motion, I stood up, pivoted my body and came to full draw. It was the fastest I had ever stood and drawn in more than 30 years of bowhunting. I tried to place my top pin on the buck, but I had no shot. There was a canopy of limbs and leaves between us, and there was no way I could get an arrow through it. The buck took a step and once again smelled the scent. The buck was standing in the exact spot I had stood before daylight when I was trying to decide which tree to climb I saw a small hole in the canopy directly between the buck’s shoulders and decided to take the shot. Since I was shooting so close and virtually straight down, I knew my arrow’s path would be slightly under my line of sight, so I placed the top pin of my sight on a leaf just above the small hole in the canopy. I touched the release and in an instant, the mature 10-pointer was down. It was a perfect shot. Even though I took this deer with a bow, the methods I used apply to everyone. Just because I chose to use a bow and someone else might choose to use a gun doesn’t mean the methods won’t work. I feel using these methods of hunting will prove more successful when gun hunting. I call my method “Jungle Hunting,” and it applies to the river swamps and mixed-hardwood regions of the South. Jungle Hunting success relies on several factors.

Dog Stares Longingly Out Of Window16s

Dog Stares Longingly Out Of Window

He acts like he didn't just play outside for three hours... Do you ever get the feeling your dog has the blues? Dog emotions can be hard to read because our pets can’t use words to explain how they feel. However, most of us have a sense of our dogs’ moods. We read their body language and behavior, and can tell when they’re not feeling their best. Dog sadness is real, but it’s not the same as human sadness. It’s well-established by now that dogs experience emotions. In fact, according to neuroscientist Gregory Berns, “they have feelings very much like we do, even though they don’t have words to describe them.” In other words, dogs do get sad, they just aren’t able to tell us about it. So how can you tell if your dog is sad? Dogs don’t cry, but they do have other physical responses to feeling unhappy. Here are some physical signs your dog might be sad: Vocalizations like whines or whimpers Mopey behavior around things they typically enjoy Lowered energy Refusing food or treats Eyes appear squinty or smaller than usual A change in sleep patterns or behavior It’s important to note that the above symptoms also might indicate a medical issue. If your dog’s behavior or energy level changes, your first step should be to call the vet. Dog emotions are real, but they’re far less nuanced than our human emotions. As Dr. Berns told National Geographic, “Dog brains are not the same as humans. One big difference is in the size. A dog brain is about the size of a lemon, at best…There’s not the same real estate in there, so they can’t do some things we can do.” It’s impossible to know exactly what goes on inside your dog’s head. But it’s safe to assume their experience of sadness is less nuanced than your own. Humans have deeper, more complex emotional and psychological experiences. Dogs, on the other hand, react to their immediate surroundings and experiences. When your dog is sad, they’re likely responding to a change in their routine or environment. Dog sadness can also be caused by a negative experience that caused sadness-adjacent emotions like anxiety or shyness. Thank you for watching my video
