Sperm whale explosion caught on video
www.stcatharinesstandard.ca...


Marine biologist Bjarni Mikkelse said he knew a beached whale on the Faroe Islands would have some trapped gas, but he was still surprised when the dead animal exploded when he cut into it Tuesday.

"The animal was more than two days old when we took it so we knew there would be some pressure on the inside, but nothing like what happened," Mikkelse, who works at the National Museum of the Faroe Islands, told the Daily Mail after a video of the whale exploding made its way online.

He was cutting along the dorsal part in the hopes of keeping the sperm whale's skeleton in tact for preservation.

"It wasn't a shock. We had expected something. In the situation I was more worried about something worse happening or anyone getting hurt," Mikkelse said.

The same sort of thing happened in Taiwan many years back.
Here's a clip from a NatGeo video explaining the occurrence, it may be choppy, but it definitely shows the viscera and blood on the roads in this city in Taiwan.

That was quite explosive!

The 'incision-ist" appeared to be expecting something (I wonder if he could actually have heard the gastric prelude) but the mother load???

I swear that I could smell the stink just by watching the video.

I wonder if that fella puked afterwards?

I am completely mortified, and laughing hysterically.

That is the most gruesome thing I have ever seen. Awesome.

I have to edit this story in. My youngest son is 100% boy. Toad in the pockets kind of kid. One day when he was 7 he came home and said, "Dad! There is a dead skunk up by the school (it was 3 blocks down from us)."

I said, "Oh yeah? Stay away from it. Dead animals have disease". His response is something I can never forget....

"Stay away from it? Why? Its awesome! Every time I run over it with my bike it farts".

And thanks for the story about your son, awesome... I can't imagine my 3 year old ever doing that though, he is scared to touch a bug... totally his mother's child.

Han Solo must be grateful it didn't happen with his tauntaun on Hoth...

I was thinking looking at the video that the bloop may have been a gigantic exploding whale... lol

The second video that showed what happened in Taiwan... holy! That was a lot of ... dripping from the buildings! Wow.

I'm glad there are no whales here. Only skunks and racoons. With squirrels.

We are eating fish tonight. I'll talk about this video then. hehe

Wonder what that guy's job description is?

That video is pretty horrible. I think I'll make my girlfriend watch it later. LOL.

This reminds me of a story my father told me of when he was a kid. This was back in the early 40's and he said that some of the neighborhood boys started jumping on a dead cow(yeah gross). The cow apparently exploded all of everyone in the vicinity.

Body gasses can be pretty extreme.
