Hi! Mason.

Hey Momoko...Gabbi's nose does that, in the winter it's pink and it goes more brown in the summertime!

Each orca, or killer whale, can be individually identified by its' markings and by the shape of its' saddle patch and dorsal fin. http://www.acsonline.org/factpack/KillerWhale.htm

When Catherine and the other CSI people come to our house they will be swamped when they lift our prints from the back deck sliding glass door and the windows fgacing the bird feeder. No problem lifting prints from the back windows of all the cars either.
