Ep. 48 – Bigger & Blacker-fish (A KILLER Whale study)

The first three rows of podcasting splash you with some TRUTH: Orcas live just as long in captivity as in the wild.  Full disclosure: there is no full disclosure given by the researchers at Sea World.  Jono, a former Sea World employee, reveals that it is not just marine animals they treat poorly.  Raj finds common ground with a lonely masturbating walrus, and Joe points out that even outside of captivity animals are not safe from humans (episode also available on iTunes).

The Paper: Comparisons of life-history parameters between free-ranging and captive killer whale (Orcinus orca) populations for application toward species management” (Robeck et al., 2015)
