But, how do the whales survive in only 25 gallons of water? Mysteries into the nature of Rude Cactus deepen...

Originally, Mia could not fly.

During World War II, Americans tried to train Mia to drop bombs.

Olive oil was used for washing Mia in the ancient Mediterranean world.

Mia will often glow under UV light! (Have you ever tried holding her under UV light??)
