I just found out about this beauty of a snake the other day, and immediately wanted to draw it—so here it is.
These gentle giants are dwindling in numbers, even though they (used to) help keep dangerous rattler numbers in check. Habitat loss due to human expansion and hunting are the main reasons for their demise.

If you're not satisfied with my crummy rendition and would like to see a photo of what one really looks like, check out @oriannesociety —they're working hard to save these serpents (and you can help them).
Also see the @gatorboys_chris account. He was recently able to photograph a young one.

Time marches on like a quick breeze. With the new year comes a wonderful holiday — it’s January 7, aka, #NationalPassGasDay 💨

Humpbacks always blame it on the bubble nets. And why not? They swim in circles under a school of fish while blowing bubbles (out of their blowholes, not their butts) to force their prey upward. Then they gorge.

As we continue to #sealoffthedecade — here's a classic meeting that I'm sure happens more often than not.

Bowhead whales are the longest living mammals—they can swim around the Arctic for more than 200 years! They're big filter feeders, measuring around 50-60 feet (15-18.5 m) long. So yeah, when they pee, I'm sure a lot of marine life wonder if there's a heatwave.

Have you ever been in an outdoor hot tub? Do you like them?

Follow @underdonecomics as I #SealOffTheDecade with lots of seal-related comics!
Elephant seals, which are by far the largest pinnipeds (seals, sea lions and walruses) spend more than half of the year in the ocean. They can dive up to 5,800 feet deep and hold their breath for up to 2 hours. They migrate thousands of miles and return twice a year to their colonies to molt or find a mate. During their time onshore, the enormous males constantly fight with one another over mates and space.

It's unknown whether or not the 2 species (norther and southern elephant seals) enjoy having satellite tags stuck on their backs.

Visit elephantseal.org to learn more about these behemoths and to hear their elegant song.

Does your grandmother make a special holiday meal? Is it any good? Share in the comments!
The grandma orca in the comic apparently loves to serve up a festive ribbon seal.
More on them:
When raising pups, ribbon seals like to live on pack ice. Since they float along in the north Pacific, they have few land predators to worry about, so they've been known to leave their babies for extended periods of time while doing some deep dives.

Down in the ocean, however, it's a different story. These pinnipeds are hunted by big sharks and orcas. Speaking of orcas, don't you think it'd be a nice gift to have a smartly dressed ribbon seal from grandma for the Christmas meal?
Grandmothers are the leaders of orca pods, since they're the oldest, they remember where the best food is and pass that knowledge down to their kids.
Those are some diabolical ocean predators, I tell's ya!

Oh, and happy holidays!

Could this be Randolph the Ultraviolet-Nosed Reindeer? No, because some polar creatures (like the arctic fox, seals, polar bears), reindeer can see light on that end of the spectrum.
Scientists think they've evolved this ability (rather quickly, too, reindeer have only been roaming the top of the world for about 10,000 years) so they can see things like white fur, urine and lichen, which absorb UV light, in high contrast against bright highly UV-reflective snow. Our eyeballs protect themselves from harmful UV rays by creating snow blindness.

And we also need to protect ourselves from noticing our own pee and poo that’s all over everything!

What's a disgusting thing that's happened to you? I'll share one in the comments if you do.

I wasn't exactly sure how to write the caption for this, because beaked whales are soooo weird. So I had my friend Ben, @a_fools_experiment & @lostworldofbayside, who's a paleontologist, specializing in whale natural history write it for me. Follow him if you're not already.
Here's what he has to say:

Imagine possessing a biological sonar that could see the skull in your friends head...
I can’t, because we are Apes... Our ancestors decided to climb out of the trees millions of years ago in the heartland of continental Africa. As apes, we have 5 basic senses: we can hear, see, taste, touch and feel. But IMAGINE if we had the equivalent of a biological sonar (more powerful than any known military sonar) that we could hunt with. You could see in absolute darkness… You could find your prey hidden completely in the sand… You could even see an unborn human fetus developing in the womb... This is not science fiction. This biological sonar (echolocation) is possessed by an incredibly successful group of animals; the toothed whales.

Whales are weird… undoubtedly the strangest of ALL whales are the beaked whales. Can you imagine holding your breath for over 2 hours, whilst diving more than a kilometer below the surface of the water, hunting in the pitch black? It’s a world we are yet to properly understand, but beaked whales not only make sense of this world; they thrive in it. (Continued in comments)

Hakuna matata! The male strap-toothed beaked whale has warthog-like bottom teeth that grow out, up and back over the mouth the mouth. They'll eventually cross over each other, greatly limiting the ability to open the jaws. Since beaked whales are so elusive, nobody's seen how they feed—but slurping up squid seems to be the consensus (and plastic trash, of course). It's also a mystery about how how the males feed with their lockjaw. They most likely use their tusks for fighting.

Contrary to the comic, though, whales communicated by making squeaks and whistles through their noses, so I'm sure there actually IS a lot of mansplaining, lockjaw or not.

Bottlenose whales are members of the beaked whale group. They can grow to 32feet (9.8m). What's amazing about them is that jelly-filled, watermelon-sized melon on the males' forehead. Females have some jelly in their heads too, but not as much as males. These bulbs are probably used for communication and echolocation.

If you're wondering about the part about the tummy:
Whenever I read news about plastic being in the chambers of the stomach of beached whales that I am reminded that whales evolved from hooved mammals. So their digestive systems are a lot like cows (hence the fluttering of stomachs). Don't forget to draw your own Beaked whales and use the hashtag #decembeakedwhale —we'll see where this goes!

Beaked whales are hard to study because they're so rare. They seem to spend their lives in the open ocean, diving for hours. Since they don't have teeth (except for the males' "tusks"—but more on that in a sec), they slurp up their prey through their snouts, or "beaks." The male ginkgo-toothed beaked whale has two ginkgo-shaped teeth that just barely stick out of its lower jaw. From the handful of specimens that've been found, they're not as scratched up as other beaked whale males. So it's thought they DON'T use their ginkgo teeth for fighting each other as much as other whales. But who really knows, really?

Use that hashtag and at the end of the month I'll share the top ten beaked whale illustrations. It'll be a fun way to end the year.

Let’s take a closer look at New Zealand’s kea bird. There are all kinds of stores and videos about how curious and downright cheeky they are (as an American I’m not sure I grasp the meaning of the word cheeky, but I’m also not sure how else to describe this parrot’s behavior. Can anybody give me some synonyms for cheeky in the comments?) Keep these comics aloft by visiting www.UnderdoneComics.com/shop

Kakapos and keas are amazingly intelligent parrots that are barely hanging on to existence in New Zealand. The kakapo, or owl parrot, is a flightless, solitary tree climber (it uses its strong beak to help get up trees) that has a intensely managed population on a couple islands in NZ. They are the longest living birds, having been recorded to live for 9 decades (with an average lifespan of 60 years). The reason for their near extinction is introduced mammals preying on them, eating their prey and taking over their habitat. Typical human BS.

The kea is the world's only alpine parrot. They're known as the "Clown of the Mountains." And like all clowns, people are both annoyed and entertained by them. For a very long time, it was rumored to attack sheep. The jury was out from the 1860s until 1992, when someone recorded a nighttime attack. Apparently, keas enjoy tearing the back of wooly sheep to slurp on some succulent fat during the lean winter months. They've gotta use that beak for something!

An estimated 200-300 thousand birds are killed each year by wind turbines. So, naturally, once Theropod dinosaurs (which contain the ancestors of birds) are cloned, what's to stop them from getting decapitated by the big windmills?

This endangered 4 foot (1.3m) tall bird likes to eat snakes, including venomous ones, like adders and cobras. They’ll eat other small animals as well by using their unique "bash 'em into submission" style of hunting, using those weird, long slender legs of theirs. So in other words, don't bring them in a butcher shop. Or they'll try to stomp all the snakes.

♻️ it’s America Recycles Day! So let’s recycle an old comic about recycling. Is that too meta?

By the way, you can get this and other preachy comics on a shirt, water bottle, mug and whathaveyou in the shop! There’s a big sale!

Did you know that plastic floating around in the ocean smells like food to birds? As krill eat algae, they give off the same smell that plastic gives off as it breaks apart in the ocean. When a bird eats plastic it feels like it's full, which is a risk for starvation. What's even more risky, is bits of plastic are stored in their crops, which is then regurgitated into their chicks' mouths.
It's estimated that 90% of seabirds eat plastic annually, and that number will be at 100% in the near future.
Even though so much of this waste is produced by industry that's completely out of many of our hands—what's in our hands is what we can do for ourselves. Cut out single use plastics whenever possible. And try to get plastic bags and other unnecessary junk out of our lives.

Philippine eagles are a critically endangered bird. They're the apex predators of their mountain homes in the Philippines. Sadly, thanks to deforestation, there's not much home for them left.
Along with the harpie and Stellers , they're the biggest eagles in the world.

I almost forgot—the fourth Wednesday in October is Lung Health Day.

So here's some info about whale lungs:

Did you know that when holding their breath, whales store their oxygen in their circulatory system? You might think that since whales are so big they have enormously large lungs, but that's not the case. When they dive deep, their lungs need to compress so they don't get poisoned by their own expanding gases. Whale lungs are still pretty powerful, though, as you can see by this right whale's giant vape toke.
Which, of course, they shouldn't do. And neither should you.

A friend of mine was on a cruise to Alaska and while he was gazing out at the majestic views, he listened to a guide explain how climate change will affect the natural wonders surrounding the giant ship. His immediate thought was the emissions coming out of the vessel he was on.
Take a look at the ecological stats on cruises. It's mind boggling. Apparently a passenger's carbon footprint increases by at least 3 times normal farty output. Multiply that by the hundreds and hundreds of passengers on each ship!
🛳💨
Earlier this year, Carnival Cruises pleaded guilty for taking a dump on the environment with its horrible pollution (gas emissions, plastic pollution and diesel air/sea anal leakage). One of my favorite quotes in the trial, where Carnival will have to pay $20mill (drop in the bucket) comes from the judge, who said, "If you all did not have the environment, you would have nothing to sell." There is hope, though! Norwegian Cruises has made an all electric ship that holds 500 people. So maybe the tide will turn? What do you think? Have you ever cruised? If so did you notice the trail of waste the boat left behind?

Well, it's World Octopus Day—the end of Octopus Week, which means I don't have to think about these suckers for a while anymore.
But one more thought on the matter... When your fellow cephalopods are sooooo good at hiding, I bet it's difficult to get away with personal, yet embarrassing things, like siphon pickin' (which, btw, an octopus's siphon is it's breathe-hole, butt and sex organ depository). I mean, millions of color-changing and texture-changing cells all over their bodies for pete's sake!

Who saw the @pbsnature octopus show last night? Making an appearance was the favorite tool-making cephalopod—the coconut octopus.
Should I do an all-octopus comic week, leading up to October 8? Would you like to see that?
More on the coconut octopus: (Amphioctopus marginatus) is known to scuttle along the sandy ocean bottom on two of its arms, kind of like it has two feet. Perhaps what's more remarkable is that while they're scuttling, they'll pick up two coconut or clam shells to hide in so their predators think they're just some debris flowing along the sea floor. Do you think a bikini top would make for a nice hidden fortress? The cups are connected by a little strap, always staying together!

When female lobsters are brought up from the bottom of the ocean, sometimes they'll be ensconced with eggs. When lobsterman see this, they cut a V in her tail (just like in the comic). Males have yet to try any mimicry (unlike in the comic).

This year, let's look at the most endangered of the 5 extant species of rhinoceros: the Javan.
According to the WWF, there somewhere between 58-68 Javan rhinos left in the world, all living in Ujung Kulon National Park in Java. They used to live all over Northeast India and Southeast Asia. But the old story of habitat loss and illegal poaching for traditional "medicine" as all but obliterated them out of existence.
