This is not a tasty gummy sweet but a Jewel Caterpillar found in Amazon Rainforest. They are covered with sticky goo-like, gellatinous tubercles that provides protection from its predator like ants until they metamorphosise into winged moths.

In light of all the posts about Keiko I thought I would begin the saddle patches weekly spotlight posts with this paper

As screen capped above it is a paper of the data gathered during Keiko’s release program it details

  • His pattern of travel after he left the bay pen
  • How he was monitored
  • Timeline of interactions with wild orca
  • Dive behaviour
  • Keiko’s behaviour toward other orca
  • Keiko’s Hunting
  • Human Impact
  • Conclusion of results based on other releases.

Quotes

"A brief physical interaction was witnessed on 30 July, when Keiko dove among foraging whales and surfaced in very close proximity to three adult males and at least two females or immature males."

"The deepest recorded dive of 72 m occurred on 3 August, at the end of period 2 (Table 2). During all periods, Keiko spent more than 80% of the time in the upper 4 m of the watercolumn.”

The increased diving activity recorded during period 2 corresponds well with observations of Keiko performing behaviours characteristic of deep dives, such as arching the body and lifting the flukes before diving. Thisevolution caused Keiko’s most active diving profile to resemble the profiles observed for wild Icelandic killer whales.


This paper can also be found amoung others in the Keiko Section

"On 30 August, Keiko was observed close to Kristianssund, Norway, a few meters from shore, in very shallow water. His physical appearance was healthy: the skin color and texture seemed normal, he did not look emaciated, and the tissue around the tag showed no signs of tag migration or infection"
