    Great story and but not behaviour one would expect from a great white:
    'Australian fisherman Arnold Pointer saved a female white shark from death two years ago, liberating from the net. He has one problem today - the shark follows him everywhere!
    Arnold says: ′′ As soon as I stop the boat, she comes to me, turns on my back and let me scratch her belly and neck, while she, as a cat rolls her eyes, smoothly rocks and wags her tail, moves the fins ".'

    Interesting trivia - never heard of this bird before. Despite being weaponized, I still think he's magical. like all birds:

    Seems reckless - like to think s/he washed hands after handling but maybe its only dangerous if s/he puts fingers in mouth or picks their nose

    Recent studies conducted by the Institute of HeartMath provide a clue to explain the bidirectional "healing" that happens when we are near horses. According to researchers, the heart has a larger electromagnetic field and higher level of intelligence than the brain: A magnetometer can measure the heart's energy field radiating up to 8 to 10 feet around the human body. While this is certainly significant it is perhaps more impressive that the electromagnetic field projected by the horse's heart is five times larger than the human one (imagine a sphere-shaped field that completely surrounds you). The horse's electromagnetic field is also stronger than ours and can actually directly influence our own heart rhythm!
    Horses are also likely to have what science has identified as a "coherent" heart rhythm (heart rate pattern) which explains why we may "feel better" when we are around them. . . .studies have found that a coherent heart pattern or HRV is a robust measure of well-being and consistent with emotional states of calm and joy--that is, we exhibit such patterns when we feel positive emotions.
    A coherent heart pattern is indicative of a system that can recover and adjust to stressful situations very efficiently. Often times, we only need to be in a horses presence to feel a sense of wellness and peace. In fact, research shows that people experience many physiological benefits while interacting with horses, including lowered blood pressure and heart rate, increased levels of beta-endorphins (neurotransmitters that serve as pain surppressors), decreased stress levels, reduced feelings of anger, hostility, tension and anxiety, improved social functioning; and increased feelings of empowerment, trust, patience and self-efficacy."

    I don't know if this FB video can be embedded, but I hope so. It's very cute.

    From Bill:

    Sadly, it seems to be a private Facebook video, only viewable by people with accounts.

    Ah, well--you can still see it if you click on the link (though perhaps only if you are on Facebook). It's a dog doing yoga with his mistress, doing several different poses. It's VERY cute.

    Some zoologists are magical, too.
    Scientists name frog found in Ecuadorian Andes after Led Zeppelin

    17 June, 2021

    Researchers in the misty mountains of the Ecuadorian Andes have discovered a new species of terrestrial frog and named it after the pioneering British rock band Led Zeppelin.

    Pristimantis ledzeppelin, known in English as Led Zeppelin’s Rain Frog, was found by the scientists David Brito-Zapata and Carolina Reyes-Puig in the Cordillera del Cóndor, which straddles south-east Ecuador and north-east Peru.

    “The name honours Led Zeppelin and their extraordinary music,” the pair explain in the Neotropical Biodiversity journal.
