The True's Beaked Whale Makes Its Film Debut

While on an educational trip in the Azores back in 2013, students captured footage of one of the most rarely seen animals on Earth. Years later, the True’s beaked whale is making its film debut  in the journal PeerJ, along with a detailed study of the whale. The goal is to get a better idea of the threat humans pose to deep sea diving mammals. These whales reach up to 17 feet long and can likely dive thousands of feet underwater for several hours at a time without a single breath. Before the footage surfaced, most scientists got their information from carcasses, so this is a big development in understanding the True’s beaked whale.

After a battery of tests and misdiagnoses, I was finally diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease twelve years ago, and thus began a long battle with trial-and-error medical treatments. I changed my diet several times, even though my doctors didn’t seem confident it would change much (it didn’t), went to physical therapy for pain-related issues, and took so many different pharmaceuticals I can’t even begin to recall each and every one. My days were foggy due to side effects from pharmaceuticals, such as steroids, that made me feel worse than I did before I even took them.

Can we see some ID please?
