Kune Kune Pigs


Kunekune pigs are being trained by the US Navy to hunt out and disarm undersea anti-ship mines. Or that might be dolphins. The documentation is unclear.

    I saw a program on TV where they were using trained Gambian giant pouched rats (same animal that brought in the monkey fever which shut down the pet trade in prairie dogs) to do mine detecting. I don’t think any harm came to the rats as they were too light to set off the mines.

    Who knows what they’ll think of next. Animals are often better at doing some things than we are!

    Animals are better at doing a lot of things than we are. Their senses are more acute and they are more sensible.

    I know that the US Navy use sea lions. I remember reading this article before Christmas about them.

    Oh, the tragedy! As a 19-year old I realise I am on the verge of no longer being a teenager, but I like to think that I’ve had the same mindset for the few ages at least. There is NOTHING in the technological world that can rival the real wonders in the natural world. Within a way, I think the age of technology tends to make naturel even more special because you can plainly see the comparison they just do not build views like that on the Internet! Just half an hour ago, I used to be marvelling at the view on the park I was walking through on my way home from university.
    Sometimes, an iPhone can capture your attention a little less complicated than a sunset. But that doesn’t mean that none of us appreciate the latter. Hope is not lost!

    I’m really impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your weblog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Either way keep up the excellent quality writing, it is rare to see a great blog like this one these days..

  18. These are really nice! I especially like that Bemio font in uppercase. Thanks.
