I agree with that. Just judging by the girth of what we are supposing is a backbone it would have to be a very heavy creature.

I didn't see any comments or anything at your source.

Do you know anything about the story?

Like if a sample was taken for testing?
Which would tell us exactly what kind of whale, etc.

Obviously, it is an Alla-hipo-rhyonoso-moose.

But seriously, I wish they had lifted it out of the water to take more pics.

Lift it out the water, with what, a Giant Sieve, I would even poke that stinking carcass with a stick.

I can see that's a large salt water crocodile from a mile away...

Fourth pict appears to show a boney skeleton. Sharks and rays have cartilage for their skeletons, not bone. It's a whale.

thinking outside-the-box....

the object could be a dead 'black-triangle' ...which was once a live creature we see in the skies & call UFOs

the gross appearance is a result of the air-borne creatures exposure to the sea-salt, et al.

we wll 'see' generalized resembelances to common body parts of regular terrestrial animals...because that is Nature..

but the 'black-triangle' flying/soaring creaturesare are perfectly evolved for an aerial existance, but the specimen your looking at in the thread is totally waterlogged and saturated... by drying the body out the scientists will discover that it is extremely light weight and fragile and the bone structure is a network of empty honeycombs


but this info will be kept from the public and a whale carcass will be the final explaination

I don't think you can tell them apart with this little of info.
(The size of the creature seems to be the only real solid indicator it is a whale)

In this PDF from Washington.edu, they explain that cartilage is an analogue of bone, and the specific form in these creatures is extremely strong compared to what one may expect.

We even have skeletons of these creatures on display, and from the articles terminology, I assume this is due to calcification or some process like that.

Any experts can correct me, but for now that is my general understanding as I am not well versed in this subset of marine biology.

Ok I am thinking you are the real winner today.
That was pretty epic, nice piece of work there.

All you have to do is look at the tail and you can see that it's a crocodile...

I'm just throwing this out there...maybe it's a shark whale. However, I'm completely clueless

It reminds me of this.....

Maybe the creature is a rotting whale shark or some other large whale type beastie...... Judging by its size

O.K...

I couldn't find anything else about these pics on the interwebs. Looks like a decomposed whale to me. Suggestions?









Apologies if it's already been posted.

A closer look at this could shed better light on this creature's identity. It is hard to speculate on limited data. We should ask the people in National Geographic to do some dive-ins and get more details to complete the picture. Assuming they haven't already.
