The biggest sea animal ever washed ashore, guess what fish this is,

We’ve all heard tales about sea monsters that can’t be identified by scientists. Sometimes these giants wash up on shore and get tongues wagging and imaginations churning. The truth of the matter is that these creatures that are found on shores around the world are just deteriorated enough to look identifiable. Plenty of other behemoths wash ashore that are easily identified. Here’s a look at the 10 biggest creatures to wash ashore.

Blue whales, giant squid, giant oarfish, sperm whales, jellyfish, and sharks are all on the list of things that have been stranded on the world’s beaches. The largest on the list is the whale shark, coming in at 42 feet. Some of these would-be sea monsters were too decomposed to identify, but that doesn’t necessarily mean things like the Lochness Monster are real.The blue whale is the largest known creature that ever lived on earth. The sea animals have this stunning ocean system with lengths of up to 100 feet and weight of over 200 tons.

The largest animal ever to exist on Earth, the magnificent and iconic blue whale, was previously hunted almost to the brink of extinction by commercial whaling activities and remains an endangered species today. The blue whales found in Sri Lankan waters, in the Northern Indian Ocean, are non-migratory and believed to be resident in these waters year-round, but the increasing pressures of entanglement, plastic pollution, human-made ocean noise and, critically, ship strikes, threaten the survival of this population.

the future of blue whales is in the hands of Sri Lanka

One of the wonderful curiosities that makes these endangered whales unique is that they don’t make the annual migration to cold, polar waters to feed, which is seen with other blue whale species. Unfortunately, staying in the incredibly productive waters off Sri Lanka throughout the year also puts these whales right in the middle of an international shipping lane. This means that collisions with ships, or ‘ship strikes’, are the key threat to the northern Indian Ocean blue whale population.
