Lemme knock on the glass tank

Listen here you little shit

“HOW WOULD YOU LIKE IT IF I MADE NOISES TO SCARE YOU? HUH?!”

BWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

Yes soundwaves extend much longer underwater. INfact one of the biggest problems in the world is barelly ever spoken about. Ever hear thata good 70% of marine fauna problems are caused by boat engines? And no not their oil, the sound they make. The sond of a cruiser ship propagates for miles andmiles underwater and its loud enough to fuck up everysingle animal radar fishes and underwatr mammals use to communicate/ hunt. Entire populations of underwater creatures are migrating differently evey year to avoid this but its all over the world!

:(

Isn't it true when knocking on glass like that, it sounds a lot louder to the fish?

Username... Does it even need to be said?

Is that why dolphins chase after boats? Not as a "hi human!" thing but as a "yeah that's right get out of here" move?

BWWOMMMMMMMMMMM!!!!

They cut the following scene where the desperate parent nods to the beluga that nods back as he helped in the education of a spoiled lil brat.

.... Checks out! Yes dammit, We say it every time. What is this, bizzaroworld?

Dolphins use merchant vessel to fish often. They circle them against a passing boat to "block" their passage and catch them.

Also whale are attracted by bit boat engine and tend to go toward the propeller where they get hit.

We have trapped it on Mars.

Recently went to the Oregon Coast Aquarium in Newport, OR. I was absolutely disgusted with the parents that allowed their children to bang on the glass, people taking pictures with flashes even though it is clearly marked to not, and just the general disregard for the fact that these animals are living beings. It ruined my experience and strengthened my belief that people are self centered thoughtless assholes.

First cats, now whales. Curiosity is still on the loose.

I love the way he swims up like, “What’s going on here?”

no, this is Patrick

u havin a giggle m8?
reminds me of my favorite gif in the world

sorry for bad quality tho

reminds me of my

sorry for bad quality tho

Killed by their curiosity, how sad.

ITS

THE REAPERS!!!

Let’s put it this way. Say a bunch of ultra high-tech Beluga whales showed up at your house and kidnapped you and brought you to their civilization under the sea. They then shove you in some sort of reverse air aquarium à la Sandy’s home in Spongebob, and charged other Beluga visitors to come see you in your tiny living space. Sometimes they would even bring their little shit Beluga kids, who would make faces at you through the glass. Would you be having fun or be in immense stress?

Seriously. That parent letting the kid mash on the glass while filming it needs a yelling at.

Hurf durf let’s watch how cute it is when the beluga gits mad at my kid dressed like a shark. Bang harder Logan!

Shouldn't the parents have known better? No nodding needed if they were supervising their child

Cheeky

What a dickhead parent letting their kid do that

There's been a lot of autopsy of beached whales and dolphins near sonar testing zones. They basically have their eardrums completely ruptured with some brain hemorrhaging thrown in.

Free health care, dental, meals, living space, come and get me belugas!

Translation, "Shut the FUUUCCCCKKKKK up!"

I've been there, and can confirm your story. When I was there, there was a kid who would not stop banging on the tanks as his parents just watched and told him to say "hi to the fishies!" An employee actually told them to leave, as they were disturbing the animals. The mom was irate but they ended up leaving after a short time.

How the fuck do you expect to break the rules and not be asked to stop and/or leave?

For now.

Yeah that kid's name is defenately logan, or Aiden

I know the face he makes when swimming up is what makes this gold.

Wonder if his idiot parents played a factor.

That's officially my favorite animal ever. That third lunge was great.

"You want some, punk? Come at me, bro!"

I feel like it's having fun but part of me hopes this isn't just immense stress for the animal.

I have heard it's part of the reason that whales beach themselves. Like, it hurts so bad they would rather die.

ASSUMING DIRECT CONTROL.

Or just slide into a bathtub and start farting. /sub/shittyexperiments

The wikipedia page on it has some info. The main issue is it causes them to get decompression sickness when they are trying to escape the noise.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marine_mammals_and_sonar

I think what they are talking about is this: "In the Bahamas in 2000, a sonar trial by the United States Navy of transmitters in the frequency range 3–8 kHz at a source level of 223–235 decibels re 1 μPa (scaled to a distance of 1 m) was associated with the beaching of seventeen whales, seven of which were found dead. Environmental groups claimed that some of the beached whales were bleeding from the eyes and ears, which they considered an indication of acoustically-induced trauma." which is talked about under the section "Acoustically induced bubble formation."

Halfway through reading your comment, I had to stop and make sure it wasn't /u/shittymorph

To shreds, you say?

And if you’re the only male in captivity, guess who gets jerked off?

I wanna say this guy but also not this guy.

These things do not give a single fuck

Fun experiment. Next time you go swimming take two rocks and bash them together while both you and the rocks are completely underwater. Have a friend go underwater also at a far distance and see how far you can hear the sound.

It is! Juno the Beluga! Thanks to your comment I did some googling and found so many videos that brightened my day!

To all the commenters calling for the kid to die - the whale does this so much he has a FB page and articles about him. He likes scaring little kids and seems to really enjoy the reactions he gets.

edit: just so you guys know, this one is the best. :)

we're killing the planet ! ahahhah

Holy shit please tell me this is not real ;_;

Stop ghosting!

Who the fuck allows dogs on their table?!

Alright Wonka! How much for the Beluga? Name your price.

Sometimes I'm amazed we survived as a species.

No. I did.

It blow my mind how people behave. I worked at a zoo for a time, and while people actually were pretty well-behaved in our aquariums, people did the stupidest stuff in other places. A family watched their child climb a tree overhanging a coyote exhibit, once. Kid was just hanging out with their legs dangling over the damn things. They were obviously kicked out, but seriously, wtf are people thinking?

I'm sorry he yelled at you

More like Daxton or Kaden

I'm still bothered by the fact that she learned to speak whale from a whale shark. My therapist says that it's really not important enough to talk about at every session, but I'm not sure.

Dory: "yeah I speak whale"

Wait a minute...

Something's not quite right here...

We mustn't allow Elon Musk, or anyone, to open that Pandora's Box again. Curiosity must stay on Mars!

Looks like we're going to Titan!

THIS HURTS YOU

How bout noooo Scott

Did I fucking stutter?!

This is the Beluga that scares people on purpose right? Seen him a few times.

Oh, he's definitely a Brayden.

only shitty if you push to hard

Is it really you, Womble?

This feels like spotting an albino tiger in the wild!

Pretty sure it had something to do with our superior hunting tactics and use of tools and shelter. But yea I'm sure someone out there is alive today because their ancestor shit their pants after a beluga whale yelled at them.

Would I have to be naked or can I order clothes? Can i have a sexy mate? Is my food Zagat rated? Can I observe my holidays and FaceTime with family? Can I browse reddit and order from Amazon? Can I raise my own baby? Can I watch TV? Will other humans be made available to play with and hang with? Can I grow and smoke weed? Can I grow a garden and have a nice house?

I have needs friend. Tell me if this world exists!

being in the water when a submarine's sonar system fires up, you can feel the ping against your skin/inside you. when you're in a sub and another sub pings you from as much as a couple miles away, you can hear it clear as day throughout the boat. you can hear it pretty clearly if you're near the hull even from a source that's many miles away.

sonar systems can actually cause disturbances in the water on the surface if the sound signal gets ducted by thermal layers properly - it creates a sort of fizzy churning area. and not a little one. meters across.

fun fact - dunno how it is with newer subs, but in the older boats, like the sturgeon class, when they would do sonar pings, you could see the steam turbine sort of... the most descriptive term i've heard is 'twitch' on its mounts each time the sonar array would transmit - the power draw is insane and it would create a momentary drag torque in the generator that would yank on the turbine and be transmitted through the entire assembly as a mechanical jolt.

Please don't I'm scared

There's two things that can infuriate me at the sheer site of it.

Kids banging on glass at Aquariums

Adults using their camera flash at Aquariums

So basically I can't go to the aquarium without getting upset

The best part is, it's the same whale in both

"Awlroight, wot's all this then, eh?"

Wha...what?

Why do British expressions persist so strongly in this way? It’s fascinating.

We survived precisely because of how that kid reacted.

Oompa-Loompa Doopah Dee Dee

Would you just let that fucking fish be?

Alliance officer: Admiral, we've lost contact with Respawn!

Anderson: The titanfall developers? They couldn't be that close already.

Alliance officer: Sir, UK headquarters has a visual on lootboxes.

You son of a bitch. Bamboozled again.

Not really darkness. More like your entire world becoming, audibly, a raving party -- where you can hardly have a conversation with the person in front of you, and certainly not call out across a room effectively, or listen for any specific sound. The ocean hasn't gotten silent, it's that it's gotten too loud.

And my axe!

Not-so-Fun fact: the possible volume of a sound in a given medium has an upper limit, because the low pressure zones of the wave can't be lower than vacuum, after that you just got a shockwave. This limit depends on the material's density. For air the maximal possible volume is somewhere close to 200 dB, if memory serves. So the sound of a sonar is louder than any sound you have heard, or ever will.

Whale calls (which means also mating calls) used to be able to be heard by other whales thousands of miles away. They were able to reach across the vast, wide world by sound alone, and hear each other. Now they can only be heard 100 miles away - so they're having trouble finding and hearing each other and reproducing.

Imagine your world being plunged into darkness and isolation like that.

Maybe he just hates kids. I could understand why with them banging on his tank all day

Braedyn

You can tell a kid a thousand times not to touch a hot stove. Sometimes the only way to get them to stop trying is to let them touch it.

"So I heard you was talkin' shit"

Ha! Wonder if the kid's shark hoodie played a factor.

Bless your heart.

Kid falls, gets eaten, parents sue zoo, no kids and three money achieved!

fuck that kid

Alliance Officer: What do we do?

Shepard: The only thing we can do. We boycott, or we die.

Two for flinching

The hotheaded football hoodlum is a trope that will persist until humanity ceases to exist.
