I have to ask the obvious. Why did you put you foot in that poor ferret's mouth?

Ferret must have said something really nasty to warrant a foot in the mouth....

I bet the ferret thought it was quite a tasty foot.

(I believe the one that got one of my fingers thought it was tasty)!

Aren't ferrets related to weasels and minks? Having spent a few days working on a relatives mink farm, I think that pound for pound NOTHING is nastier than a mink. And oh yeah, they can bite.

A ferret is a member of the weasel family, and yes, they can bite.

Ferrets usually bite peoples feet when you are not paying any attention to them, it's their way of saying come and play with me. My ferret has been trained to mostly not bite so he will just sniff my foot and run away. Megans ferret has become a bit nippy since Megan has gone away, she is also very fast and hard to catch so putting her in the time out box for biting is less effective. Training them to not bite only works if the punishment is immediate and consistent.

Looks like a nose over at relatively low speed. Probably repairable, and the intial accident was obviously survivable. Most seaplane fatalities happen in the few minutes after the crash. People get out of the wreck, and discover they can't swim, or can't swim for more than a few minutes in cold water. Warm Aussie water is a blessing in this case, and it looks like they were close to help. Still, not the kind of flight one hopes for.

Just noticed the airplane sitting on the wheels after being pulled out. Did they land on the water with the gear down? A classic seaplane accident scenario.

I dont know the details but in the tv news footage it was floating up-side-down with the wheels out. It would have taken off from the water though. It crashed either just before or on landing about 150 meters out from the pier so there were plenty of boats in the immediate area to rescue the people. Bay water temp is around 22C and it is the middle of summer down here.

If I had a place where I could fill My 100 gallon aquarium Grace would have Her fish, I'd need a concrete floor or a place that is oriented differently, sigh, I could put gold fish inside, but I know how destructive they can be, not to mention messy, super large filter or not.
