New Whale Species Discovered (in 2016!)

Post by Bart Stewart » Tue Jul 26, 2016 5:40 pm

I am posting this in the largely moribund Monster News category only because it goes to show that large animals can go undiscovered, even in the present time.

This is not really a "monster" (whatever that is) but apparently a new species of beaked whale, found as a result of a carcass washing ashore in Alaska, and the later discovery that a skeleton in a local school is from the same type of creature. The carcass is 24 feet long. ... e-species/

Oh no! Imagine what the nutbags are going to do with a whale with 24 feet.

Well, since it has that many feet (or any at all, for that matter-s), we won't be hearing from San Fr... oh no, here they come...
Lard, save me from your followers.
