    Wennis Dilson And I just told you this a few weeks ago.

    One time there were 101 elephant seals.

    Three aquatic facts.

    May the Lord be with you as He is with me.

    Dennis was an excellent surfer, until he drowned.

    Dolphins have very complex social behaviour, but this also allows for them to express cruelty rarely seen in nonhuman animals. Some species of dolphins will actually kill and mutilate baby dolphins, including those from their own species. Other types of animals will also attack juveniles to help their own offspring or reproductive chances, but dolphins seem to get much more entertainment from it.

    Elephant seals are one of the few mammal species to fully molt layers of skin on a routine basis, rather than just fur.

    Dennis Wilson was also once friends with Charles Manson (yes, that Charles Manson), and Manson even wrote a song that was eventually released (with altered lyrics) as a Beach Boys single less than a year before the Manson Family murders.

    Myth about The Beach Boys. They all surfed, Dennis was the only one who surfed regularly (whenever he could get to it). I watched them on long boards one evening at Huntington (tiny waves). They all knew how.

    Take care, may amorous dolphin Blorp “I Also Give Her Chocolate Covered Sardines” Bloppord be with you, and gesundheit.

    The “original” Beach Boys were Native Hawaiians who worked the Waikiki Beach. The “original” musical band Beach Boys did all surf, as said in a previous reply. Male dolphins give female dolphins sponges to wash their StingRays.

    Wasn’t Dennis Wilson also the guy who brought Charlie Manson in and gave him a place to stay for a bit?

    in english, does that mean that male dolphins “present” females with sea sponges? or perhaps that they give females sea sponges as gifts…?

    I wonder if Ron Wilson, the drummer of the Surfaris band, could surf?
