Last week, possibly with tusks, a giant sea creature washed up on a beach in Indonesia. On the island of Seram people are freaking out and launching a global guessing game to determine what it is to be, exactly.
A floating carcass image rocketed around the internet, asked itself by the scientific community: What it is? How did it get to an Indonesian Island? And what its presence say about the climate change and the whale migration habits?
There are more pressing query by the people of Seram: How do get rid if this?
A 37 year old fisherman, Asrul Tuanakota initially thought that he had discovered a boat stranded in shallow water, as per the Jakarta Globe. Asrul Tuanakota determined by the closer inspection that it was a rotting corpse of a 50 foot long dead sea creature- looks like a tentacle possibly a giant squid as the remains looked like.
From the Dead whale the blood seeping, beast had turned the coastline water a bright red, which made a closer look and snapping of pictures by the localities.
The Chief Scientist of the Ocean Conservancy, George Leonard, told the Huffington Post that the carcass rotting was may be a baleen whale, by the parts of protruding skeleton being judged what appears to be baleen plates used to filter out food.
Decomposition gases bloated the whale into a very un-whale-like shape, and some of the noxious gases were seeping out.
The largest Island in the Maluku Island group, Seram is near the routes of Migration for baleen whales, one would be near which makes a sense. The government is being asked by the locals to help them remove the carcass, reposted by the Huffington Post.
Usually the dead whales sink to the bottom of the ocean, a year’s long buffet being provided for the creatures that dwell there, as per the Live Science. That theorized by the publication that the whale had a bacterial infection that produced the gases or that it died possibly in warm waters, to expand body allowing the bacteria to accumulate and gases. After being clipped by a ship it could have died an unnatural death.
Of course, things die in the ocean all the time producing all kinds of weird phenomena. But now fishermen and villages and tourists - and their smartphones - are coming into contact with Dead Sea things as they go through the circle of life.
Fishermen off the western coast of Australia found a humongous, floating balloon of flesh that looked as if it was the first sign of an alien invasion. At first, the father and son thought they had encountered a hot-air balloon, as Example.
Mark Watkins told the West Australian, "When we got closer we realized it had to be a dead whale because of the smell."
Of a whale balloon they snapped a picture, then to the shore they headed. They said by then that, circling sharks had taken bites of the dead creature, causing it to deflate.
Earlier this year, a hairy giant sea creature washed up a beach in Philippines as per the Daily Mail. On a recent earthquake the locals believe that the unusual occurrence was brought.
The People are climbing at the top of carcass to take selfies as seen in the picture.
