Enormous Sea Creature Washes up on Indonesian Shore || ViralHog
In 2017, an enormous and terrifying sea creature showed up on a beach in Indonesia. This beast was 50-feet-long and initially, locals thought it was a giant squid.
Later, it was discovered that it was a baleen whale! Because of decomposition, it was bloated into a very un-whale like shape and the scent was as horrible as you’d imagine. Blood seeping from the dead animal eventually turned the waters surrounding it into a bright red, but this did not stop locals from taking pictures with it.
Dead whales usually sink to the bottom of the ocean and no one quite knows why this one showed up on a beach. Some theorized that this whale had a bacterial infection that produced more gasses while others claimed that it had died in warm waters which allowed bacteria to accumulate and gasses to expand its body. It may also have been murdered after being clipped by some ship!
