This Just In: You Can Have A Dolphin Birth Your Baby

Forget about seeking the care of a doctor, that’s so passé.  If you’re looking to have a “supernatural” birth, you should find a nice dolphin to deliver your baby. No, this is not the premise of a “Portlandia” sketch. It’s real. After receiving a lot of “signs” and reading the book The Ancient Secret of

Life Dream Status: Someday We Might Speak Dolphin

Dolphins are like humans in a lot of ways: they have sex for pleasure, mingle with different social groups, and enjoy looking at themselves in the mirror.

Stupid Rave Leads To Dolphin Casualty

I like pretty much everything more than I like raves, but I also like pretty much everything less than I like dolphins.

The Insane Story Of The Dolphins At Sea World

I’m a vegetarian, so it doesn’t take much animal cruelty to get me up in arms. But I always thought places like Sea World were havens for injured animals, which made me fully support them. Well, yesterday, I vowed to never visit another Sea World again after seeing the documentary “The Cove.” I…
