    Not penguins dear CathyKeshi, but "brown pelicans" from the Sea of Cortez.

    It gets TOO HOT down here for penguins.
    What I always wanted to ask the Seri (I asked them mostly about medicinal uses of plants in my week-long stay with them) is how did they get rid of the "corucos" or "bird-lice"...they are hideously large and scary!!! Never in my life I would wear a pelican pelt kilt if it had JUST ONE of these hideous critters! Yikes...makes my skin crawl!

                Could be! The one I did hear that was a scam (and it seems waaay too common now) is that about the giant clam pearl in the Philippines.
                In any case, if you have that info Wendy, please share it as a follow up!

                  Slightly shaky translation from Thai
                  For Mr. Code Chai, it was a news report for picking orange pearls or ′′ pearl melo ′′ which is rare in the seaside area behind the house. It was hilariously posted on Facebook that there was a businessman. I want to buy for 5 million baht, but I haven't sold it. When Melo was found, there was a Sheriff of Hua Sai and villagers travelling to see Melo pearl continuously. #until the officer entered. Make an arrest.

                    Okay, further research. Pearl info may or may not be accurate (why the Pteria shells?) but it seems the man celebrated in unadvised ways

                        Yes, and we could have discussions on the articles and breaking news
                        Like this "Melo Con-Man", although the photo of the accused pearl does look like a Melo.

                          News about a Pearl Farming Venture in the United Emirates....it's a touching story of a boy whose grandfather was a pearl diver, the boy later becoming a pearl farmer.
