Blue Whale carcase decomposing on the beach. Yeuch! But also Wow a Blue Whale!
Update: After a visit to the Mission Science Center, which has several of this Blue Whale's bones, I learned that what we took the picture of was probably the foetus - this female Blue Whale was pregnant when she was beached, after hitting a propeller. The mother whale was much much larger and I think under water when we were there. Though apparently there isn't much of her now. Interesting aside, the bones are now leaking oil.
This picture says it all really.
