Pinterested?

Beached Sperm whale

Sperm whales are the largest toothed whale, and the only whale larger than them is the Blue whale (my personal favourite). The most famous of Sperm whales is Moby Dick and today, another Sperm whale got to have his five minutes of fame, but not for a very good reason.

Earlier today a 13-metre, 27-tonne (one account reports it weighed “more than 30 tonnes”) injured Sperm whale got stranded on a beach in Belgium, most likely as a result of its injury. Unfortunately it died before anyone could attempt to rescue it, and the poor guy became an attraction.

The first image I saw of the whale only showed it’s tail, but the other images I saw once I clicked on the corresponding articles were actually quite gruesome and terribly heartbreaking.
