Desert Whale by WurdBendur Desert Whale by WurdBendur
Here we see the majestic desert whale, surfacing for a breath of fresh air. Living in sand, it swims a bit slower than its aquatic cousins, at only 3 - 5 mph (5 - 8 km/h). It pulls itself through the sand with its flippers in a way that resembles crawling, and can move in a similar way across the surface, though it usually prefers to stay buried. The Desert whale feeds on the typical desert life, namely reptiles and rodents, but also desert krill. This is a rare view and a rare opportunity for the boaters, who happened to get stuck there by some freak accident.

This photo montage was done as a project for my Computer Art and Design class.

Thanks. I don't know about the Nutcracker, but they sound like an interesting species. I'll have to study them further.
