    It amazes me that unionists always launch straight into the usual tired old anti-SNP anti Nichola Sturgeon routine at any given opportunity. This story has absolutely nothing to do with Scottish politics and I posted it on here as a bit of Fortean whimsy for a Sunday afternoon. Save the bitter raving unionist crap for the rugby club dinner or the Scotland in Union meeting eh?

    I can dislike Nicola Sturgeon without politics entering the picture.

    If a sturgeon (fish) was in the news, then it would be relevant to this thread. I'd rather nobody mentioned her ever again. Or any politics.

    Otters may be cute, but they sure aren't cuddly. Just ask Terry Nutkins (when he was alive).

    Here's an interesting story I'd not heard of before

    Toronto Makes It's Buildings Bird Friendly

    By minimising vast glass panels on new builds to stop birds flying into them & dying from the impact. Short video at link. I don't know whether any other cities in the world do this.

    Maple the percussionist dog, I know there's a human squeezing her 'elbows' off camera but her first interruption is spot on IMO.

    Someone tried to clean coral in a fishtank in Oxfordshire, the coral became stressed and released fumes and now 10 people are in hospital!

    I always thought that sounded like a porn alias. (Well, not always. Not when I was a youngster watching Glen Michael's Cartoon Cavalcade.)

    I love the way it can just run up a cliff! Scary.
