Whales Trapped in California

(original image url: http://www.sfondideldesktop.com/Images-Animals/Whale/Art-Humpback-

I heard about the whales on the, like, California news. They were on the news because it was a big surprise in California- that the whales have migrated the wrong way and migrated to a river in California. That happened a few years ago- another whale got trapped in, I think, the same river. And they were using feeding sounds in the ocean of other humpback whales feeding to try to get them back. The other whale got trapped in the 19's [ed. note: he's talking about the 1900's]. They are a mother and clf and it is the calf's mother. -Rehm (dictated to his dad)

Comb Jellyfish

Comb jellyfish are jellyfish that live down in the midnight zone. The midnight is the third zone of the ocean. The trench is the last zone in the ocean. The first zone is the sunlight zone, the second is the twilight and the trench is the forth zone - this includes the Marianas trench)

Comb jellyfish have colored lights that change color and the lights go up and down and go by different color. Once one color is gone it pops up from the bottom. The comb jelly's head does not go out and in like an umbrella like other jellyfish do.

The comb jelly doesn't have long tentacles like most jelly fish. It's head is in the same place as other jellyfish - on top of the tentacles.

Note from the editor: I'm not really sure if he is talking about cone jellyfish or comb jellyfish as they are both true species. And I have no clue what the Marianas trench is or if he made it up. OK I googled Marianas Trench and it is really part of the ocean and of course Rehm had it right. Ah the things you learn from your six year old.
