    Kept waiting for a great white to get them. Glad that was not the ending.

    We are the same. Not sure of it specifically being a great white but some sort of shark getting at least one of them.

    Well after that bit of unpleasantness, it feels like my duty to point out that wombats have ass-babies.

    Simple subject/verb agreement

    a pair of goats was spotted
    the goats were put down

    Should be “were” in the first one, no? Or maybe I’m misunderstanding your post.

    A pair is a singular entity composed of two elements. Disregard the "of goats" prepositional phrase when deciding what verb to use

    We were always taught to use plural verb form unless “pair” is just one thing; such as a pair of pants.

    Pair, trio, quartet, group, team, flock, are all examples of singular entities made up of multiple elements. Is your body singular? It's made up of many cells/organs

    The pair was spotted: some entity/entities, singular or multiple, spotted the pair
    The pair were spotted: the two elements of the pair had spots

    Hmmmm a quick google search gives me conflicting answers on how to handle that. But we've always adhered to this:
    But it's really not that important or pertinent to the nature is scary thread, I suppose.

    That moose is laboring. Based on his rack hes not old either. Decent rack but better off finding something younger for better meat.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Melon_(cetacean)

    Beluga whale
    The melon of the beluga whale is also unique in that the whale can change the melon's shape at will.[10] These changes in shape probably have the effect of changing the size, shape, direction, and frequency composition of the echolocation beam.

    Also neat thing about belugas is they lack a dorsal fin which allows them to swim directly under the ice.

    Back in the Pleistocene there were Giant Beavers that were up to 7 feet long weighing ~250 lbs with 6 in incisors.
