Recently, 36-year-old Mark Watkins and his father set out on a morning fishing trip in the Indian Ocean. During their trip they came across something truly bizarre drifting on the waves.
At first glance they thought they were looking at an overturned boat, or maybe a hot air balloon, perhaps. Then, they noticed the stench and realized the truth, which was that they had actually come across a huge dead sea animal.
#3Mark told The West
Mark told The West Australian the simple reason for the whale’s strange appearance: “Its stomach was full of gas so it was all bloated up,” he said.
During the tow to shore, the humpback whale’s distended stomach deflated a little as sharks tore off chunks of flesh.
