Apex predators of our Oceans. This incredible Sentient being, with the gift of echo location and no recorded attack ever on human beings, must have more happening than meets the eye. There have been many witnessed attacks of moose and elk that swim between islands yet this divine cetacean appears to exist on a level where it considers human to be a friend and partner. It is said that whales carry a copy of the Akashic record of humanity within their DNA. Perhaps this is why they seem so excited to spend time in the vicinity of people in the wild.
"23 Chromosome pairs we Homo Sapiens possess. Yet every other Ape and Hominid before us, up to just a few hundred thousand years ago, had 24. Perhaps the greatest mystery of our species is what happened with the missing link!?" ~ Travis
