Now seals are going to start sending text messages. No not Navy Seals, actual seals. As part of a study to track the survival rates of newborn seal pups, seals will be tagged with chips that will monitor their location and when they surface near a cell phone tower send a text message to researchers with tracking data. For some odd reason this reminds me of the Yahoo! Dolphin ad.
