THE DARK DEPTHS OF THE OCEAN TO MEET AND LEARN SURPRISING FACTS ABOUT THE MAGNIFICENT ANIMALS THAT LIVE THERE ALL THROUGH THE CAPTIVATING COLORFUL PAGES OF ZOOBOOKS
Hay thar. I'm a 20+ year old art student and this is my personal blog.
It's mainly to reblog stuff that interest me, which include
Be warned, I spam a lot of stuff everyday in here, your dash will be several pages longer. BE VERY WARNED. I also sometimes post some NSFW things.Main blog: ones-inspiration, which is my art/animation/writing blog thing for references and art stuff.
Sometimes I don't know if I offended someone or not by their reactions (it's hard to tell online) so... just to let you know I don't mean it, don't take it to heart. I don't joke about things, or purposely write some trolling/flame-attracting messages (unless I'm pissed off and looking for a fight, which is rare). If it seems that way, I probably phrased my words wrong or spoke too bluntly. Please be forgiving if I've made such an error.

The Great Leap
Manta rays frequently leap out of the water, though it is not clear why. Some speculate it is to evade predators, get rid of parasites, attract females, or just for fun. Though most leaps are 2-3 feet off the surface of the water, there have been reports as high as 9 feet. When they belly flop back onto the water, it make an incredibly loud bang. Spectators have described it as sounding a lot like gunfire.
