    Mind you, thinking about it, just about any animal we think of as a land animal can swim, even if they don't often. Trying to think of exceptions….giraffes?

    ... don't know if you ever heard this? https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q...BA69&FORM=VIRE
    That was rather odd. Interesting to see videos from the 80s, these days. Production has certainly improved.

    As for swimming, I know that Chimpanzees are unable to swim. Mostly because they have no buoyancy in the water.
    It may not be so much that I've conceded your point as that you just can't hear me rolling my eyes.

    chuckle. Yep, Kate Bush is unique. Don't think there's ever been anything like her before or since.


    Chimps, eh? That makes sense - I was reminded of a story I read about people studying chimp societies and they were concentrating on two very different societies which were separated by a river they could not cross. I assumed at the time it was a fast flowing river or something but if chimps sink that would also fit. The interesting thing about the two societies was that one was female dominated and co-operative and peaceful and the other was male dominated and warlike and hunted other animals - monkeys particularly.
    The crowd: "Yes! We are all individuals!"
    Lone voice: "I'm not."

    Considering that all land animals share their common ancestry from sea creatures it's not that surprising.
