Sperm Whale

A gruesome update to picture #2351. This whale was beached in February. You can’t tell by my daughters face that it was a bit smelly. Don’t think I have ever smelt anything so bad. Picture taken last month.

Believe me it did smell bad. Even up wind on that windy day. I had to bribe my daughter wae fish and chips fae the hotel to get here to stand there so I could get the some scale in the photo. After half a dozen photos fae different angles she didno feel like chips (result!.)I think the dentist’s were at the teeth within the first couple o weeks.
