Whale Fall (after life of a whale) on Vimeo


I know I've been scarce here of late but when I saw this I knew it had to be shared with everyone here. It's beautiful and informative. It makes me wish that air-burial were still an option. I'd love to be an ecosystem when I die.
I'll be back around soon.

Thanks Buluc....
I subscribed to the thread to view it later.
I just noticed I can no longer view videos either because the computers too full to accept the download!

Nice Picture of the Wasp on the Home Page too. I read an in-depth article on Whale Falls in NWF and was surprised by how many whales just sink to their final resting place compared to being washed ashore,, The ratio was highly leveraged to falls. Since the falls are so far apart the question about how the decomposer snakes,worms, and snails navigate the ocean floors.
