I agree with your point. Like feeding mice and baby bunnies to snakes; what happens if you feed a puppy or a kitten to a snake?
I ask why would you capture something that big? An animal that special and majestic, I`d rather leave it to live on in it`s splendor than to let it rot after a picture was taken.
*sniff *sniff, I`m so upset, imma go hug a tree... Come here you big pine...
As numerous peeps have pointed out, twas a stingray (and a massive dose of bad luck) that did for Mr Irwin.
I`ve swum with mantas (almost head butted one `cos I miscalculated the distance down), stingrays, various shark species, sea lions and a small whale. The only thing that ever bit me was a cleaner wrasse.. repeatedly.. in the middle of a mask clearance - little bastard.
Steve Irwin wouldnt agree ;)
You boil a lobster live, and you`re a chef; you boil a kitten live, and suddenly it`s a big deal.
No, that stuff is cat`s wee watered down with English beer and produced for overseas people who think Aussies drink it. I`ve never actually met ANYONE who drinks Fosters, because, well, bluntly but fairly, its crap. Most Aussies REALLY drink VB (Victoria Bitter) or Tooheys, but if I mentioned them in the joke you wouldn`t have known what I was talking about.
move over magic carpet, its magic manta ray
So, Is Foster`s really Australian for beer?
Don`t bother, us Aussies don`t have brooms up our as*es like some nations do, we were cracking Steve Irwin and Stingray jokes at his funeral. If an Aussie watched his drunk mate get into his car, reverse into traffic and get killed in a high-speed impact, the polite response would be something like "Sh*t, I told him that Crown Lager was no good for ya. THAT, my friends, is why I stick to Fosters!"
i like you.
well said, those things are freakin massive......./me scared now
OMG... WE DIDN`T LISTEN!!! </south park reference>
Anyway, the manta`s belly also looks like a face with squint eyes , many eyebrows, pointy ears and freckles on his nose, licking the ground with his lizzard-like tongue :)
You obviously don`t know that Photoshop works in layers and can change saturation and colours...
So you could make the font over the tail, make those cracks across the photo and change the tone and saturation of the manta ray.
The photo looks altered, yes.
"Records of giant Mantas are notoriously difficult to verify. The largest reported in the scientific literature measured 22 feet (6.7 metres) across and there is one report of an individual 30 feet (9.1 metres) across. But most Mantas encountered by people are about 12 feet (4 metres) across."http://www.elasmo-research.org/education/topics/lh_manta_faq.htm
Im going to with legit
Doesn`t matter, because they grow this big really.
Anyway, when this sh*t learns how to fly, we`re all dead. Sh*t, it`s scarier than the aliens from Independence Day.
