Nature’s Best Recyclers.

All living things have a life cycle with a being and an end. What happens to a whale after it dies?? Watch this amazing video sent to me by Subio and Jae Su’s Mom and told by puppets.

When a whale kicks the bucket, all that blubber has to go somewhere. This absolutely gorgeous short film  (click here) by Sharon Shattuck and Flora Lichtman depicts what happens to a whale’s corpse after it falls to the bottom of the sea. See all of your favorite deep-sea scavengers in puppet form! I mean you, polychaete worm!
