World’s Largest Jellyfish

The lion’s mane jellyfish (Cyanea capillata), also known as hair jelly, is the largest known species of jellyfish. Its range is confined to cold, boreal waters of the Arctic, northern Atlantic, and northern Pacific Oceans, seldom found farther south than 42°N latitude. Although capable of attaining a bell diameter of 2.5 metres (8.2 ft), these jellyfish can vary greatly in size, those found in lower latitudes are much smaller than their far northern counterparts with bell about 50 centimetres (20 in) in diameter. At 120 feet (37 m) in length, the largest known specimen was longer than a blue whale and is considered one of the longest known animals in the world.

Recently, I had seen some pictures of this strange animal and thought that it was weird looking dog or fox. After some search, I learned its name was maned wolf. It is much larger than fox and is the tallest of the wild canids. It does not form pack unlike wolf and dog, and it hunts alone. (Doesn’t it make it a lone wolf? :P) Btw, it has an interesting nickname, skunk wolf.

Quechua – We all need warmth

I am testing how to post video here. :)

Here is another video clip:
making of “WE ALL NEED WARMTH”

It seems that there are two ways to post video clips.
The first way is to use tag. It is a good way to embed the video clip into the paragraph.
The other way is to simply copy and paste the URL. It is the simplest/easiest way to share a video clip quickly.

Update: They don’t work in IE.
