Giant New Mammal Discovered

A new whale species has been discovered, it literally washed up on shore. Scientists believe the dead carcass and a skeleton hanging in a high school gym are an entirely newly discovered species of whale.

The remains floated ashore in June of 2014, in the Pribilof Islands community of St. George, a tiny oasis of rock and grass in the middle of Alaska's Bering Sea. A young biology teacher spotted the carcass half-buried in sand on a desolate windswept beach. He alerted a former fur seal researcher who presumed, at first, that she knew what they'd found: a Baird's beaked whale, a large, gray, deep-diving creature that occasionally washes in dead with the tide.

But a closer examination later showed that the flesh was too dark, the dorsal fin too big and floppy. The animal was too short to be an adult, but its teeth were worn and yellowed with age.

It turns out, according to new research published Tuesday, that this was not a Baird's beaked whale at all, but an entirely new species—a smaller, odd-shaped black cetacean that Japanese fishermen have long called karasu, or raven.

"We don't know how many there are, where they're typically found, anything," says Phillip Morin, a molecular geneticist at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Southwest Fisheries Science Center. "But we're going to start looking."

  3. Can you imagine that- a new species found accidentally . Wonder if the ISf loons would have discounted it before it washed up on shore with "it doesn't exist" "where's the body" "no evidence" every year we discover new species you backyard bozos but you're too dumb to understand that because you're too busy playing your video games in your basements


    1. The big difference is that this whale is real.

    2. and it was only found by accident you tosser !
