Intestinal granuloma in a chameleon. Granulomas are inflammatory lesions that are associated with fungal and bacterial infections, as well as tissue injury. In this case, organisms are not observed by H&E staining and special stains would be required to further search for mycobacteria, fungal, and bacterial organisms.

Endoventricular mycosis - fungal organisms are infiltrating the koilin layer of the ventriculus in a bird. There is no accompanying inflammation but the koilin layer is disrupted. In this case, this is likely secondary to a systemic bacterial infection.

Another New Baby in J pod!

After spending the past two weeks near the west entrance of the Strait of Juan de Fuca, J pod finally came back into the interior Salish Sea waters and showed off another brand new baby whale to the few observers that braved the mist and light rain and watched the whales swim by from land and from vessels at respectful distance. Dave Ellifrit from the Center for Whale Research, and Jeanne Hyde who first heard the whales on Lime Kiln hydrophone this morning, embarked on the Center ‘s research vessel “Chimo” to Haro Strait while CWR Senior Scientist, Ken Balcomb, watched from shore and managed communications.
The late December calf, J50, with its J16 family were seen today as well; but, the big news is that J19 and J41 were swimming protectively on either side on another new baby that we estimate is about one week old. This newest addition to J pod is designated J51, and the presumed mother is thirty-six year old J19. Her ten-year old daughter, J41, was also in attendance. The newest baby appears healthy.
This brings us to twenty-six whales in J pod, the most viable pod in the Endangered Southern Resident Killer Whale population of the US and Canada Pacific Northwest. K pod has 19 individuals, and L pod has 34 individuals for a total population of 79 SRKW’s as of today. That number can change anytime with the birth or death of one of these charismatic whales.
